Rtom black hole practice mesh heads

Hello, I wanted to ask if you have tried the sensors on the black hole practice heads/pads, will the sensor attach well to the pad’s rim?
I think for mobility reasons, would be an excellent choice.
Does anyone have tried this before?

Hi @Sebastian,

I don’t think the RTOM Black Hole practice pads are compatible with Sensory Percussion. There are several reasons why they won’t work. First, you need to attach a pickup element (it’s a small steel disc) to the drum head and that’s what the sensor reads. The practice pads are too acoustically dead for the sensors to read. Also, I think the way the practice pads are so thick, it might prevent the sensor for attaching to the rim of the drum.

You can check out this page for more info on how the sensor attaches: Problems attaching the sensor | Sensory Percussion Help

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
