AHEAD Metronome Practice Pad (AMP)The new AHEAD Metronome Practice Pad (AMP) from Big Bang Distribution is the perfect practice tool for every drummer. Recommended by teachers and students, the AMP combines the benefits of conventional practice pads and metronomes with the educational advantages of on-board electronics, including a Drum Meter-style stroke counter to measure progress. The interactive AMP helps drummers improve their control, speed, endurance, flexibility and timing in a variety of standard and odd-meters—making practice more enjoyable and more efficient.

AMP’s drummer-designed highlights include:

• Easy-to-read LCD read-out offers a visual reference to enhance development and increase retention. Functions such as meter, tempo, pulse, rhythm and clock/timer are clearly displayed.

• Gum Rubber Pad provides a comfortable playing surface for accurate response with a natural rebound for any technical exercise and every dynamic level.

• AMP Control Center allows easy adjustment of tempo (30-250 beats per minute) and meter (0-9 subdivisions per measure) as well as mode, counter, timer, clock and a selection of preset rhythms.

The AHEAD Metronome Pad also features a Drum Meter-style stroke counter (U. S. Patent #6,545,207), built-in speaker with adjustable volume, audio output earphone jack and an 8mm threaded sleeve for use with cymbal/practice pad stands.
