Galapagos Pad Signature Series - Sifu Pad

Our new signature design series of pads aims to provide unique designs inspired by influential percussionists and educators. These designs are created in conjunction with the artists, and draw from their experience as a percussionist, and as a person. 

"This design stems from a tradition in my culture known as “día de los muertos”. I chose to side with this design due to the vibrant colors that I love from the culture and skull images drawn up in their non aggressive approach. Aesthetically it’s something that I’ve always been a fan of. Traditionally, I will always get behind a day designated to honor all those who have come before us." - Randy Sifuentes

Product Description

The Galapagos Pad is our biggest drum pad yet, and named after the Galapagos Tortoise. 

The wooden base of the pad is made of Forescolor, an innovative improvement to Medium Density Fiberboard. Forescolor is naturally water resistant, fire retardant, and colored throughout (so if you drop your pad, that chip in the corner will still be the same color).

The top of the pad features a natural gum rubber, with a vinyl laminate that is uniquely different from the standard hard top mylar laminates. The vinyl laminate retains much of the feel and rebound of the gum rubber, while adding articulation to each stroke. 

The bottom of the Galapagos pad features a recycled rubber surface. The recycled rubber is great for gripping the surface it is on while the pad is in heavy use. The rubber is also just a little bit harder and thinner than the topside playing surface, while still offering rebound and quite a bit more articulation. This makes the bottom side perfect for chopping out, or when you need to draw a little more sound out of your playing.

Product Info:

  • Playing surface is 11" diameter top and bottom
  • Pad weight is approximately 4 lbs.
  • Features a top playing surface and bottom playing surface

Great Pad, Fantastic Cause

Loving my Galapagos Pad! The softness from the pad is nice and easy on the hands so I can play for longer without exhaustion. The backside of the pad produces quite a bit of volume, so the only complaint here would be from my neighbors.

Not to mention that the pad looks sweet!

Awesome

I’m in the organization Ancient and Honorable Order of Turtles, and as a turtle and percussionist I love this pad. Great sound, I can hear every beat being played .

This is truly an amazing drum pad! Feels great on the hands without being too loud. I cannot say enough how amazing this pad is! Will recommend highly to my students!

Amazing

This practice pad is my every day practice pad now. The design is simple but pleasing to look at and the feeling while playing it is just next level. I chose to buy this after Andrew Morris brought a model to our STRYKE percussion rehearsal and I fell in love when I saw the design. Definitely a need for all percussionists, marching or concert.

Sturdy, ive already dropped it a few times and it doesn't have a scratch. Rebound is a bit lacking but it helps to build up chops. Love the aesthetic.
