This full size pad is not only a complete pleasure to play, it also takes you to a new level of understanding your technique and the progress you have made to perfecting a first class snare drumming skills.
This was a long time coming, but now, the Invader has arrived…”

“For those concerned with working their quality of sound and right to left balance, check out the INVADER by OffWorld Percussion. This is easily the most articulate sounding pad I‘ve ever played… allows you to hear very clearly at even the lowest dynamic. It also has a great look… not too big, not too small, and even a Rim to boot!”

It is an aesthetically wonderful looking pad and virtually indestructible. The students in my band and percussion program have used the same set of Invader practice pads for over a year and they still look incredible–from the abuse of my beginning percussionists to the day to day “chop outs” from my high school students.
The pad fits comfortably inside a 14″ snare drum or perfectly on either side in a snare stand basket.
The “rim” offers life-like snare practice and feel, offering true simulation of snare drum playing–no need to alter technique or approach. It’s also great for practicing cross sticking rhythms.
Finally, the pad just sounds great! PERIOD! At varied dynamic levels, this pad is the most articulate pad I have ever played!”
