11.5” BYOSphere w DarkMatter playing surface


Put simply, Ralph’s and Harvey’s BYOS Signature practice pad by Offworld Percussion is one of the best marching pads we’ve ever come across. It’s small and portable enough to fit in a bag, feels and sounds GREAT, doesn’t bounce around or move when played with marching sticks, and has the unique interchangeable puck system for changing the sound / mounting options as required.

DarkMatter™ Playing Surface:

  • DarkMatter™ is an industrial grade polymer that has been “tweaked” to more closely replicate the feel of a Kevlar™/Aramid-Mylar marching snare drum head than the natural rubber traditionally used on practice pads for years.  DarkMatter™ produces a unique tone, tighter and sharper than rubber, which makes it more articulate, even on the smallest strokes.  The rebound of the material is also more closely analogous to a marching snare.
