Tenor (quint) practice pads

Posted: Tue May 15, 2012 9:57 pm



What's the best tenor pad out there? I want to get a good one that feels like an actual tenor.

Then you should go buy actual drums. There is no pad out there that feels like actual tenors; it's just a fact. I use the Heavy Hitter quad pad. Aside from the multiple pads, it's far from feeling like real drums, but it works for me because I have nothing closer at the moment and it's the next best thing. Just find the one that you like the best and go for it.

And like I said, I use the Vic Firth HH Quad Pad without the laminates. I don't know of too many other tenor pads out there. I've only tried/heard about these two.

hey before you do that and go off of 1 opinion look at this post first. ones guys idea shouldnt be yor deciding factor in getting a good quality tenor pad man. now theres a bunch of different options to consider when getting a tenor pad; I should know cause i went through the same thing in trying to find one for myself about 5 months ago. here are the best types out there:

2. Yamaha small or large, tonal difference, cut out playing areas
3. Vic Firth Heavy Hitter Large or Small, stick holding holes put on stands, no tonal difference
4. ProLogix cut out playing areas,
5. Isley
6. Dynasty
7. Mike Stevens ModPod
8. Other
The real difference is deciding what is best for you at yor level. If you want tonal difference on the drums, than Vic Firth is not the best option. Personally, playing on those things to me is like hitting abunch of regular slimpads just put in a tenor arrangement. Try and find out which of these has yor best interests. As a drumline veteran, would also recommend Yamaha but maybe not anything below prologix. Another option is to make your own, but that's hard. Beleive me i tried. It didn't work out so hot. but try and see which of these is best for you, and also maybe your price. Thats for me was the deciding factor in my search. scout around and see what appeals to you and what doesnt.

It looks like just any other quad pad. With quads you won't be looking for the kevlar head feel that the dark matter has. You just want a drumhead feel, which rubber seems to emulate the best.

What's the word on those Invader Quad pads? Are they going to be releasing those for sometime in the future? I'd buy one...

Heavy Hitter Pad is just as good, if not better than any other pad on the market. Designed by a world class tenor player for tenor players.
