Summary: My son took to the Perc Pad immediately -- thinks it's a fun mix of sounds to match up to each of the 4 pads. Uses with headphones or with an amp for drum lesson practice (we don't have a kit yet). Definitely see him more engaged with this electronic pad more than with his snare and traditional practice pad; easy to try out different things.
Summary: I purchased this product to use as a full-kit replacement. I traveled to Africa with it tucked under the seat in front of me and used it to play in a live setting for a week-long camp. I put a snare stand in some of our checked luggage. I ran from the headphone out jack into a PA system. Our system included in-ear monitoring so it worked great! The PercPad was the perfect solution for traveling and using in a temporary setting.
Summary: I wanted something simple and basic to add a few very standard traps to my kit with two objectives in mind. I wanted them to be heard and I did not want to have to add too many stands and individual pieces. This fit the bill. I use it primarily for tamborine, shaker, wind chimes and cow bell.
Summary: For the price of this unit you cannot go wrong. If the sounds arent quite up to scratch then midi it up to whatever, I love the fact you can have a different midi assign number per pad and it is completely indipendant of the on-board sounds, so if you do have a module you can layer the internal sounds with the on-board.
Summary: Geweldig apparaat! Makkelijk te bevestigen op een snarestandaard, makkelijk intuitief in te stellen. Wat wel enigzins wennen is de aanslaggevoeligheid: voor de stokjes prima maar percussei met de hand wil het nog wel eens te ongevoelig zijn. Moet je even feeling mee krijgen en dan lukt dat wel. Handzaam, makkelijk meenemen. Helaas niet draadloos: kan niet op batterijen.
