It doesn't matter how long you've been playing drums. Whether you're new to drumming or a seasoned pro, it takes time to find and buy quality accessories for your drumming kit without breaking the bank - time you'd probably prefer to spend playing. We’re all musicians at Sweetwater, so we get it. That's why we offer the best drum practice pads out there, so you can quickly choose the right ones for you and get back to focusing on your music.
Do you want to spend more time practicing but find it tricky to nail down a time and place where you won't bother people? With drum practice pads, you can easily hone your technique late at night. They’re also great for warming up backstage before a show.
Drum practice pads are a key part of any drummer's toolkit. They're designed to help you hone your technique without making a lot of noise. The drum head doesn't resonate so it stays quiet, and they're also extremely portable so you can take them wherever you and your drums may go.
When selecting drum practice pads, the first thing to do is to ask yourself what you plan on using the pads for. Consider the pros and cons associated with the various pad types, and think about how those are going to align with your wants and needs. Luckily, we are here to help!
Sweetwater carries a few different types of drum practice pads. If you don't plan on traveling with your practice pads and have plenty of room, go for fully-equipped practice pads that include stands and pedals. These kits imitate the spacing of a drum kit, so you can get a better sense of space, but they’re quite large and best for the studio. Touring and traveling drummers will want to check out simpler varieties. These practice pads can be used anywhere and anytime. They're easily portable and can easily be folded to fit into your case or bag.
Are you looking for something that combines the best of both worlds? We have that too. Check out drum practice pads that offer a happy combination of these two main types. Some practice pads have the upper part of a kit, including space for cymbals and toms, but are still foldable and somewhat practical to move. Sweet!
Whichever type of drum practice pads you choose, we offer the best brands at the best prices. One of the best things about practice pads is their price. You can stock up on a few of these so you can have a makeshift kit where you want, for way cheaper than the price of a full kit.
With our flexible financing options, we make sure everyone can get exactly the piece of equipment they need. If you're still not totally sure, give our Sales Engineers a call. We'll help you find the best pads for your unique style.
