Vic Firth Double Sided 12" Drum Practice Pad
The Vic Firth Double Sided 12" first appeared on our recommended list for Drum Practice Pads from November 2017 until November 2020 when it was out-ranked by other models.
It had high enough ratings to go back on the list in November 2021 where it remained until September 2022.
The Vic Firth Double Sided 12” Drum Practice Pad has two surfaces with differing density and rebound.
The gray side is more silent and offers a lot of rebound and is reminiscent of a high tuned rock snare while the black side has a noticeable "clack" and gives the feel of a tight kevlar marching snare.
Mistakes are more evident when practicing with the black side due to the sound which makes it great for perfecting the timing of your flams. While some see this as a plus, having a noisy drum pad is a problem if you prefer to practice in silence.
The bigger 12" size makes it more comfortable for use on your lap compared to a 6" pad which may tilt or fall off your leg.
Many note that the size and construction of the drum pad makes it convenient to use on a snare stand, desk or their lap.
The Vic Firth Double Sided 12" Drum Practice Pad is a great option for those accustomed to tightly tuned shells due to the response.
The volume level of the black side will either be a positive or negative point depending on whether you want more note perception or silence.
