The Offworld Percussion Invader V3 Up Close
Here's a video with Micah Brusse where he talks about the Offworld Percussion Invader V3 practice pad. I apologize for the video and audio quality. I still think he makes the best review of the pad I've seen.
Among his likes are:
- the Invader has a rim like a real snare drum which gives you the correct feel and angle of attack
- the surface has good definition on the low end which is better than other gum rubber surfaces
- the surface gives the most realistic response of any snare pad surface
- the flip side of the pad is also a viable playing surface which provides more of a challenge than the main side
