Gearank Recommendation

The Vic Firth Single Sided 6″ appeared on our recommended list for Drum Practice Pads from November 2017 until November 2020.


Playing smaller pads forces you to play more accurately and hit your strokes dead center.

The Vic Firth Single Sided 6″ Drum Practice Pad is an affordable small practice pad that lets you work on your control. Note that there is also a 12 inch version of this practice pad.

The soft rubber playing surface offers less rebound than other materials. This encourages drawing out more power in your stroke which can be a challenge given the small size of the pad.

The rubber base also prevents the pad from moving around when placed on a surface such as a table.

Offering a great middle ground between high and low levels of rebound in a small pad for precision training, the Vic Firth Single Sided 6″ Drum Practice Pad is a great budget option for those looking to improve both their accuracy and stroke.
