The PercPad’s four velocity-sensitive electronic drum pads, external kick input, high-quality internal sounds and compact size make it the perfect choice for percussionists looking to incorporate electronic percussion into their setups. Drummers can place the PercPad on a standard snare drum stand or mount it to other stands or racks using the Alesis Module Mount, sold separately.
