What We Think

RTOM's Black Hole series of mesh-head practice pads are a revolution in low-volume drum technology. Drummers living in apartments or shared spaces need no longer sacrifice their tone with rubber mutes. These mesh heads snap onto the rim of each individual drum and allow you to actually hear your drum's natural tone at a reduced volume. Moreover, they can be tuned to match the tension and pitch of the drum, thus providing tactile feedback that feels almost like you're playing the real skins, something that rubber pads simply can't do.

The Black Hole mesh heads make quiet practice enjoyable, allowing you to hear and feel your real drums without deafening your neighbors.

Manufacturer's Description from RTOM

Want low-volume practice without sacrificing sound? Meet Black Hole, your new best friend.
Snap it on, tune to your desired tension, and you’re ready to go. Each head can be independently tuned to match the pitch and tension of the drum on which it’s attached by rotating a turnbuckle located on the underside of the rubber hoop with an included tool.

The bass drum sizes (18-24) include a metal extender plate that you use to connect the pedal. Simply clamp the pedal to the extender, and then slide the extender under the hoop of the Black Hole until it locks in place.
