This is an amazingly versatile product. It was created to offer everything the touring drummer needs in a portable pad. The Scout™ sports two playing surfaces with OffWorld’s own DarkMatter™ on one side and natural rubber on the other.
The pad fits comfortably over the thigh and comes with a quick-release removable strap to hold it securely in place.
Because the base and pad are separate components, connected by 4 powerful rare-earth magnets, swapping between DarkMatter™ and natural rubber is as easy as flipping the pad over, one side to the other, without the base ever leaving the thigh.
As an additional feature, the base comes with an 8mm threaded insert for mounting to the most common cymbal stands. The base also has 4 rubber feet for sitting stable on any flat surface.
The Scout™ is offered in 2 models
MI-Snare Sound: White birch ply construction with red signature accent rings, silver highlights and loaded with a maracca style “snare” sound which enhances the volume and tone of the pad with a light crunch. Buy Now
M2-Solid: White birch ply construction with caramel signature accent rings, green highlights and a solid birch ply pad for a quieter playing experience. Buy Now
