Amazing!

Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Marching Practice Pad with Snare Sound:

Best pad I've ever used. Closest thing to a marching snare you are ever going to find. Bounce is perfect, buzzes sound clean. Once you play on one of these you will never go back to practicing on the old rubber pads. Very very happy with this buy!

Good, but not great

Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Marching Practice Pad with Snare Sound:

Due to Xym.. terrible customer service, I thought I would buy this for my son. Still not sure if it was a good choice. The pad had almost no snare sound. I found the back nuts loose and no way to tighten them unless I remove the pad, which is glued on. I tried emailing/calling Ahead and got not response. GC's customer service is great.... I accidently selected the one with no snare sound and they exchanged it with no questions asked.

      Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Marching Practice Pad with Snare Sound:

      I ordered this through Sweetwater so it might be different, but there is hardly any snare sound. The bolts on the back are loose and you can't tighten or loosen them, so they serve hardly any purpose except to hold the beads in place. The beads are so loose that I move the practice pad and you can hear them. Might as well call this "Practice pad" a shaker. Basically, I wish it had more of a snare sound, otherwise it's not as fun for me to practice on it. Everything else is fine. It does feel like a real marching snare head with the carbon fiber layer on top. Nor sure if this is worth the money.

      Great marching snare practice pad!

      Comments about Ahead S-Hoop Marching Practice Pad with Snare Sound:

      Bought this for my son who's playing in the high school drumline. He likes it and has been practicing on it a lot. I have my drumset set up and a practice studio, but none of my kit snares can be tightened as tight as a marching snare. This S-Hoop 14" Practice Pad head is super tight and it's pretty heavy. It won't bounce off of any surface you set it on. My son has been bringing it on long drives, and just playing it on his lap. It does have a very light snare sound to it, but is pretty much the same volume as any other practice pad. If you want to mount it on a stand, you will need a regular snare stand that is tall enough to get to standing height, if that's the way you want to practice with it. There is no center screw mount hole. Great buy!
