Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "PercPad- a good buy"
Overall: 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. I triggered the kick with a basic 'on off' trigger switch pedal. Ideally you should attach a full kick pad+pedal to this setup. I only recommend a trigger switch pedal if you don't care about playing your kick dynamically. The sensitivity settings on each of the 4 pads are more or less effective, but do not provide anything close to the dynamic range of other pads. I don't believe the PercPad is intended to compete with some of the more expensive pad solutions out there. Now that I'm back in the US I am using the PercPad as an extension of my Roland-TD20 kit. It sits to the left of my snare and is triggering the aux channels via a MIDI cable. This is the real strength of this $100 device! You can assign each of the 5 triggers their own MIDI note and use this pad with most electronic kits. The 25 built-in sounds are nice in a pinch, but using its MIDI function is really the way to get the most out of this device. Overall- the best for the price Sound- built-in instruments are limited and include extraneous sounds. Sound quality of instruments vary Ease of use- excellent. Very basic controls. Features- limited. I would like the option to run off of batteries, but for $100 don't expect too much Quality- plastic housing seems a little thin. Volume knob protrudes too much and could lead to bending and breaking. Should be recessed. Value- Excellent. Best features for the $$

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Does the Job"
Overall: 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.
