Kick Drum Pad


Junior Member
Hello, I just bought a new drum head (batter) and I was wondering if I should put a kick pad there to protect the head but I was also wondering if I lose any quality if I do that. So my question is, should I put a kick pad on there or leave it off?

you should defintely put a kick pad on without it the head will break sooner rather than later and if anything it improves the sound so get one lol

What kind of beater is on your pedal? Felt? Wood? Plastic? If it's anything other than felt, then yes, I'd put a patch on the batter head.

Hope this helps!!
