  • Dual Zone Remo Practice Pad

    I made this pad in December 2008. jUst now getting around to showing the details on this site.

    It is a Remo practice pad that I converted to a dual zone (head/rim) drum pad

    I suppose the practice pad was originally made in rubber? You replaced it with a mesh head? Does it mean the only thing you got from the practice is chassis/base? And how did you mount the mesh head on the base?

      Sorry I neglected to take photos of the pad when I started. the pictures were taken after the conversion was completed.

      The Remo pads come with a real drumhead that can be tensioned to suit your likes.

      See this link for picture of a retail Remo Practice Pad:

      or:

      the top half of the case clamps the head to the bottom half. Under the Remo drum head is the circular foam. All that comes in the pad from Remo.

      The Remo pad drum head is not a standard size head so I used it to make my mesh head. I cut the drumhead free from its metal ring. Then I made a mesh head using the original metal hoop from the original remo practice pad drum head.

      see the link below for Project Rifleman_WI. there are some pics of the drum heads I made for him in there. Basically the same process except I now just use Hot Glue instead of epoxy, and you do not need to put any slack in the remo practice pad mesh head. the head will give/stretch enough in the pad frame. just lay your material flat on the table and glue the hoop directly to it. fold the sides over and glue them in place. trim excess - but don't cut the playing surface...yep, I did that on one of the heads I made.

        Does the rim trigger well? I never thought of using a practice pad for a dual zone trigger.

              Looks good racer52! I like how you painted the REMO plastic so it is not the ugly gray color.
