The Shuttle practice pad is specifically designed for 'lap drummers' , with enough playing surface to allow for natural technique while spanning across a player's legs. It also fits quite nicely on a 14" snare drum, and it's slim enough to slide down perfectly into the center of most stick bags for easy transport. It's equipped with Offworld's trademark 'Darkmatter' formula (the same stuff used on the V3 pads) and a thick plastic base that features a slight raised lip for rimshots as well as finger holds to carry the pad around easily. It's complimented by a non-slip neoprene base with a flashy silver logo. Lightweight and ultra-portable, it is the perfect addition for stick bags and related kits. A great fundamental starter pad for beginners and a compact/mobile alternative for pros.
