I'm planning on getting practice pads to practice my double kick and rudiment patterns with. Please note I may not get any of these from Thomann as I might be able to get them cheaper locally, it's just for viewing purposes.

This is the bass drum pad I was thinking of getting...anyone have or tried this? if so, thoughts on it? - http://www.thomann.de/ie/hq_percussion_rfbass_bass_pedal_practice_pad.htm


I planning on maybe two of these can't see how these could be bad but maybe if anyone has better suggestions? - http://www.thomann.de/ie/real_feel_rf12g_practice_pad.htm

If I decide on two of the above practice pads I would need another stand (I have my snare stand for the first one) and I was thinking of this for the second pad, again, anyone have or used this...is it decent? I know it's only for a practice pad but it's still 24 quid I wouldn't want to waste. - http://www.thomann.de/ie/remo_staender_uebungspads.htm

Any opinions are most welcome.

The kick pad you picked is a little stiff for my taste. You could maybe put some felt or cusion on it to get some good feel. The pad is great, i have one myself.

For the stand, dont get that crap practice pad stand. just get a cheap snare stand (50 bucks) and then if you ever need an extra one day, you'll have it. I already started using my extra as a tom stand...

Originally I was thinking of another snare stand however I thought getting a crappy stand as it's cheaper and all I really need the stand to do is hold that pad. The second thing is that stand seems to raise quite high, another snare stand would reduce the height of which I can put the second pad. With a stand I was hoping to change posistion and heights so I could use it as a 'tom' or 'hats' if you know what I mean.

This is the best pad for bass drum practice,

As for snare and tom pads try to find pads with 8mm screw holes and use cymbal stands, I'm guessing you already have some cymbal stands and won't need to buy those.
