About Practice Pads

The Split Tone Pad consists of three distinct surfaces that offer different feels and volume levels, along with a reduced rebound section on the back.  It is designed to train more than a simple rudiment.  With the Split Tone Pad, you can creatively mold your own systematic approach to advance your consistency, accuracy in unisons, hand independence and muscle strength. The power of this pad is in its ability to train your ears and mind for a better understanding of rhythms.

The primary pad (middle) has a regular tone and feel. Here, you can practice your hand exercises normally.

The secondary pads (red dots) have a higher tone compared to the primary pad. Switching between using only your left or right hand in these areas with the opposite hand in the middle splits your hands into two different sounds, which enables you to hear familiar rhythms from a different perspective.

The soft oval shape near the top is the muted section. By playing your full patterns on the primary pad and moving one hand at a time to this section, you hear the opposite hand very strong and loud while the hand playing the muted area becomes silent.  This allows you to focus your attention strongly on one hand to pinpoint and smooth out any weakness. 

The workout pad on the back has a special surface with less rebound to warm up your muscles quickly and gain power. This side also doubles as a non-slip layer when playing the pad on flat surfaces.
