This Ludwig P4 Practice Pad was designed by world-renowned drummer Pat Petrillo and features three playing levels and four playing surfaces that provide a variety of feels, sounds, and responses. This unique and versatile design will improve a drummer's overall hand technique, accuracy, and coordination by providing multiple playing surfaces on the same side of the drum pad.

The Ludwig P4 practice drum pad fits neatly on top of your snare drum, table top, or into any snare-stand basket. It also has an 8mm thread, so it can be attached to a cymbal stand. Each pad has a unique sound and feel, corresponding to the playing characteristics of different drums and cymbals. Pat Petrillo has been successfully using the P4 for practice and teaching at Drummers Collective in New York, and now everyone has the opportunity to experience the feel and dexterity development that the Ludwig P4 drum pad can offer.

The large black pad that comprises the bottom level has the feel of a snare-style practice pad and the blue surface on the left side of the second level feels more like a hi-hat. The right side of the second level is soft”like a floor tom”and the upper tier resembles the feel of a ride.

"I wanted to replicate the feel of moving around the drum set when I practice on a pad," says drummer Pat Petrillo. "The P4 allows me to really work on independence techniques."

Pat is recognized as one of today's most accomplished and versatile drummers, having performed and recorded with a wide variety of artists from many genres of music including Gloria Gaynor, Patti LaBelle, Dee-Lite, Patti Smythe, and Glen Burtnik, as well jazz guitarist Ed Hamilton, and most recently the world music group Oko Jumu.
