Drumfire will be introducing their new practice pad, perfect for drummers of any level or skillset. Drumfire will be showcasing the new practice pad, the DFP5500, at the 2015 NAMM Convention (Booth #5940).

The pad’s surface replicates a real drumhead, thus making it the ideal material for a drummer’s practice routine. The pad also comes equipped with an adjustable stand, solid braced legs, non-slip rubber feet, and friction locking clutch. The versatile stand and removable head gives drummers the option to comfortably practice in the studio, before a show, or even on the road.

One drummer that recently road-tested the stand said, "The cymbal stand adapter makes the Prentice Practice Pad placement a pleasure!" – Bermuda Schwartz, The "Weird Al" Yankovic Band

Cattails are polypropylene rods mounted on a rigid wood handle. There are three strategically placed polyethylene solid balls that can be repositioned on one poly rod or allowed to roam freely. Positioned at three different heights and around the diameter of the circumference ensures the solid ball will always make contact with the drum or cymbals no matter how the stick is being held. There is an ‘O’ Ring in front and after each individual ball, which allows each ball to be repositioned to a new altitude on its host rod.

SONOR has carefully recreated the look of the 1950’s teardrop lug and updated it with SONOR’s exclusive Tunesafe tuning system. SONOR has redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops, and brought back the timeless SONOR logo and badge used between 1952 and 1961.

The Bass Plate quickly and securely attaches to any bass drum using the same screws and holes that are used for the two bottom, back tension lugs. The Bass Plate restores the balance and fullness of the bass drum’s sound by removing the bass drum pedal from the bass drum hoop, distributing the weight of the drum more evenly and suspending it slightly off the ground. The Bass Plate’s flat clamping surface and six inch width allows drummers to adjust the position of their pedals laterally.
