The Stubbs timpani practice pad is a great tool for any percussionist to keep up your timpani chops. Gone are the days of setting up pillows around the bed, the TPP2 pad has come around to answer your timpani practicing concerns.
The new design of the pad came out in 2013. When we are at conventions and trade shows, people are always amazed when they try this pad out. It is really impressive the response you get out of this pad. Whether you are a beginner trying to get your mechanics in order, or need to keep up your chops at home, in your dorm room, or on the road, this practice pad is great tool.
The response is as close to a timpani head as you can get. We have people purchase one to work on their rhythms, stroke, and rolls. And we also have individuals or band directors that pick up two or four to replicate multiple drums. You can set multiple ones up on several snare stands, and because of the size it helps you target the correct playing spots on the drums.
The back has a rubber non-skid/non-bounce backing which works great on a table or desk. Otherwise you can set this pad in any snare drum stand. It is also small and light enough to fit in a stick bag or backpack.
