Sledgepad Testimonials

  • testimonialImg

    The first night I installed SledgePad I noticed a difference in the punch and presence of my kick sound. I was looking for something that would stay in place so I contacted Mike at SledgePad and he shipped one right out to me. I'm very happy so far. I love that it stays put from show to show. I haven't made a single adjustment to it since I first installed it. This is really important to me as I have quite an elaborate setup with Two Way Crossing. Very glad I don't have to deal with fine tuning my kick muffling from show to show.
    SledgePad..I get consistant sound...Every night.

    "SledgePad is in all my bass drums. There is an absolute audible difference in my sound. Big precise attack with the perfect amount of muffling. No more pillow!"

  • "Thanks so much for the second pad. I installed #SledgePad and it solved a whole bunch of miking problems I was having in my home studio. I have a 1980s vintage Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute kit. The drums sound amazing on their own but the Sledge Pad really balanced out the sound so I am really hearing the kick instead of resonance. Thanks again for the second pad.
    Best regards,"

  • "We were having issues with my drummer and his cymbal/kick impact combination. We were having to compress it greatly but your product made this much more manageable. We were using another product but it was not working well at all. Your product seemed to "tune" the sound to a much more pleasing tone. I can hear the kick better on recordings. I don't even eq it while recording anymore, the tone is that much better."

  • "SLEDGEPAD Hi! Love the Sledgepad! It works great and not heavy enough to add weight to the bass drum! I also like the consistency of getting the same sound out of the bass drum because the pad doesn't move during transport! GREAT PRODUCT! Thanks"

  • "Hello..I just wanted to take the time to tell you great job with Sledgepad! I got one from Gabe Muniz a few months ago, and it is been working better than anything I've ever used. I just recently got a new drum kit and have had nothing but great results with your product."

  • "Hi Mike~It sounds phenomenal. Got it all up & running last night. No pictures - I went with an intact resonant head and am running my mic cable in through the tom mount bracket at the top of the drum, so there's nothing to see, but holy shit is there a huge difference in the sound. Very round & full, but not boomy or sloppy - it's still punchy. I write music theory stuff for the magazine, they wouldn't want a product review from me, but they do a series where they show the manufacturing process & talk to manufacturers. It might be good exposure for you."

  • I love SledgePad. I'm very impressed with the sound response I get from my bass drum. I love the craftsmanship. My bass drum has an amazing new sound. I have the best drum kit drum on the market using SledgePad. Through my years of experience I have tried so many different pillows, blankets and foam to get the sound I want and like . Until I had the chance to use SledgePad I couldn't believe what a king is sound I was getting. I was very impress with the product and the sound response you get from your bass drum. I love the craftsmanship. I love the very low end thump of my bass drum. I'm glad to be apart of the SledgePad family.

  • Sledgepad provides my kick drum with something that other traditional dampening methods and systems can't: TONE! It won't choke out your kick. It dampens just the right amount, allowing it to breathe like a kick drum should! Trust me, GET A SLEDGEPAD!

    First off, let me state that I had seen your product before but wasn’t completely sold until playing several shows with one of your endorsed Houston drummers Phred Williams. Besides always putting on a show for the crowd, his drums consistently sounded great so I was talking to him about his kit after a show one time and he had mentioned to me he was using the SledgePad in his kicks. So, I did my homework and bought my first pair of SledgePads fairly soon thereafter. Since then I have been very very happy with them and have recently bought another pair for another one of my gigging kits. Couldn’t be happier.
    I am a user of both the 16” and the 18” large vented SledgePads in my gigging kits and I can finally say that I am now officially done searching for that special random item that for years I'd shove in my kicks looking for that perfect punch and tone. No more pillows or U-Haul blankets for me! lol The Large Vented SledgePad allows my kicks to open up and sound how they are supposed to sound. Big and punchy. You can hear the tone but it's not a ringing one, and you get the punch, but it’s not a muffled thud. As a double kick player it’s nice to know the same dampening system is going into each kick to help with tuning. And when I’m done, my kit goes in their road cases, then brought back out for the next show only to have the SledgePads exactly where I placed them. Can’t say that for my old U-Haul blankets ! ! ! Thank you SledgePad.

    I use the SledgePad Mini as well as the Small Vented and the consistent sound is so important for me. I like the feel and and punch I still have with SledgePad and the fact that SledgePad can custom make a pad for any drum size. That's awesome...No other company does that.

  • I've been searching for that mythical bass tone since I heard When The Levee Breaks for the first time. I've tried all kinds of solutions until Ricky Reyes at 7drums opened my eyes to this amazing product. The focus, the attack, the sustain in just mind blowing. Installation is a breeze, and the results are incomparable. Every sound engineer loves the sound of my kick, and I owe this to Sledgepad. Do yourself a favor and get one. NOW.
