    Comments about Offworld Percussion Invader V3 Darkmatter Practice Pad:

    I've owned my OffWorld Invader pad for about 4 years now and it is still in great shape! Drum pads that consist of a sheet of gum rubber glued to a base (in the most simplest terms lol) often times start to come apart after a few years, resulting in a different feel when playing and less durability. What is great about the Invader pad is that the Darkmatter does not do this which keeps your playing surface consistent year after year. The material has a solid feel, not as solid as an actual marching snare, but still much better than traditional gum rubber. Another great feature of this pad is the rim; the rim is so smooth that it isn't going to cut into your sticks and/or chip them like an actually metal one would, which is great if you don't want to tape up a pair of sticks just to play on a pad. The invader pad is about 13.5in in diameter and fits easily over the head of a 14in marching snare, meaning you can practice playing while wearing the drum and even do complex body movements without producing a bombardment of sound. Overall, a great pad that is 100% worth the money.

    Comments about Offworld Percussion Invader V3 Darkmatter Practice Pad:

    I march a high school snareline, and this pad feels almost exactly like a real drum. This pad was a great investment, and good for the rudimental snare. I wouldnt reccomend this pad to someone who is just learning because it is very expensive for a beginner, but if you play on a line or do solos, this pad all the way.

    Comments about Offworld Percussion Invader V3 Darkmatter Practice Pad:

    I am the Senior Drum Captain at the Thomas Jefferson High School Blue and Gold Regiment Drumline myself and my co-captain both use this pad all the time and cannot get enough of it. When we have down time in school, during lunch, after school and during rehearsals we always pull out these Pads and just go to town and in the three years since we've had them our quality of sound has increased, our technique is phenomenal and we are proud to say that we will be marching with the 2012 Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corp out of Canton, Ohio. This pad is a must have for ALL Marching Snare Drummers (Traditional, Military, Showstyle, etc.) buy it and you will not be disappointed.
