The Ahead AHSHPB practice pad from Ahead has been specially developed to recreate the unique performance characteristics of marching snare drums so that Marching Band, Winter Guard and Drum Corps drummers can improve their technique without the potentially damaging volume,sonic frequencies and muscle fatigue often associated with high-tension drums.
The 14 AHSHPB œS-Hoop Marching Pad is a full-size practice pad features a hard carbon-fiber surface and a snare effect for a sound and feel similar to that of a tightly tuned head on a marching snare drum.
The AHSHPB also includes an S-Hoop counterhoop for real rimshots and cross-sticks and a padded bottom so that it can be placed on top of a standard 14 drum during indoor or outdoor drills.
FEATURES ATTENTION: The carbon fiber surface will wear quickly when using Wood Tip Drumsticks. Nylon Tip Drumsticks are highly recommended in extending the life of the carbon fiber surface Replaceable, black carbon fiber surface.
