Every drummer needs a practice pad. I personally own several practice pads of all shapes, sizes and designs so I guess it could be considered as more of a collection now. I don’t have a problem, I swear.
The RealFeel by Evans practice pads are one of the most popular practice pads out there. They feature a natural gum rubber playing surface with a dark grey fabric finish which resists everyday wear and tear. They will last you an incredibly long time. I’m convinced that after the apocalypse, the only things left intact will be cockroaches, twinkies and RealFeel practice pads.
There's a variety of uses for practice pads. Number 1 is obviously…practice. No matter where you are, you can whip the pad out, set it on a table/any flat surface (it won't slip due to the surface grip on the pads underside) and get 5 minutes of rudimental practice in. No excuses people.
You can also leave it in a snare stand and use it as a bedside table and then when you wake up, you can roll (intended) out of bed and your practice station is right there.
You can also use it as a makeshift dinner table. Practice, eat your dinner off your practice pad (I do recommend a plate though) and then practice some more. The Rev (R.I.P) once stated that to be the best you can be, you have to practice so much that you’re essentially eating your dinner off of your snare drum.
