Backstage pad contour is designed to fit your leg perfectly.
If you decide not to spare on a knee drum pad this is it. Steve Smith Backstage pad is almost good as Steve Smith himself, maybe if you practice on this pad you become quite as good
Let’s get serious, this drum pad is the ultimate knee pad that you can find on the market.
Made by DW-Drum Workshop, one of the best drums manufactures in the world. Everything they make is top of the class but expensive as well.
What I like
It is made out of the finest rubber so the rebound is really good and it is not too loud.
The plastic on this drum pad is pretty good, not like on most knee drum pads. It is hard to describe a sense of quality while a Backstage pad is attached to your leg.
It is the biggest knee drum practice pad and the most expensive one.
Most manufacturers choose to save a few bucks on a plastic material that holds the rubber. If the plastic is thin and bad quality the pad itself will be louder and not so comfortable when you attach it to a leg.
This product is not made for marketing purpose, but for professionals.
What I don’t like
The backstage pad is a little bit heavy because of the use of quality materials so sometimes you will need to make a break from practicing.
Drummers usually don’t spend too much money on a practice gear.
This is a premium knee pad so the price is higher. It is not for everyone.
If you are planning to invest in a good drum knee pad for practice this is for you. It is more expensive than others but sure with a reason.
However, if you don’t have such a big needs for a knee pad and just want to have one, it is better to go with some cheaper pad.
