Drum pads

 A set of pads which have a similar response to the heads of acoustic drums when struck with sticks. They are made for two purposes: to quiet drum practice, and, when fitted with suitable transducers, to play electronic (usually sampled) drum sounds. If equipped with MIDI, drum pads can also act as a controller, allowing drummers to trigger any type of synthesized sound across a MIDI network.
