The Tap-Off is a one-of-a-kind drumming practice tool that is the result of over a year of development between Tapspace and OffWorld Percussion. This unique, dual-surface practice pad combines the best of two worlds. The main surface of the pad is a customized orange gum rubber, perfect for players who want to focus on practicing with active rebound. Even with its lively bounce, this surface has been designed to provide an audible articulation from the sound of the wood underneath. The black oval near the top of the pad is filled with OffWorld's own signature Darkmatter™. This surface closely resembles that of a modern marching snare drum, allowing rudimental players to practice on a harder, more articulate surface. This combination of traditional gum rubber feel and the ultra-articulate Darkmatter™ makes the Tap-Off the perfect pad for both drumset players and rudimental drummers. You not only have two distinctly different sounding and feeling surfaces to play on, but you can really focus on split-hand exercises—ideal for practicing independence exercises or isolating each hand. The pad also features a 360-degree stick-saving rim element. This high-impact, industrial strength nylon composite matrix is abrasion and weather-resistant. A non-slip foam base attaches underneath the pad and is actually one more extra soft playing surface. All these factors together make the Tap-Off the only pad you’ll ever want to use!
