Who We Are
Turtle Pads was founded by Andrew Morris in June of 2020 with a simple mission, to make percussion education more accessible to students. Having taught at a number of High Schools and Middle Schools across the country, many students did not have access to a pad and drumsticks and could not practice efficiently in class, or at home. Andrew started his percussion education in Middle School with the bell kit and he knew the kind of problems that came with it. For his small frame, the bell kit was heavy. For his parents, the bell kit was very expensive. So years later he set out to alleviate both of these problems, and Andrew designed the Turtle Pad. A Turtle Pad is a gum rubber drum pad built onto a drawstring bag, designed for the convenience of the percussion student on the go. Whether in class, at home, or anywhere in-between, the Turtle Pad provides the best possible practice experience. By pairing this design with a pair of drumsticks, students are given all the tools they need to be successful.
