Sabian Quiet Tone Snare Drum Practice Pad
The playing surface of the Sabian Quiet Tone Pad feels very close to that of an actual drum. The playing surface is an actual drumhead and can be tuned to be tighter if needed. I like this pad because it the closest thing to playing an actual drum while remaining very quiet at the same time. The Quiet Tone also has rubber feet so you can place it on top of your snare drum for warm-ups. Since this pad has a real drumhead, it can also be used to practice a limited amount of brushwork. Available in 10 and 14 inch model, I recommend the 14 inch because it fits perfectly on top of most snare drums and doesn’t move around when played.
