Practice pads on stands are best
There are a bewildering number of different practice pads available at the local music store, which could be a bit daunting for the novice.
There are three broad categories of practice pad based on their shape: those with stands, those with a pad only, and all others. Of these three, those with stands are the best. Why are these best? Those with stands can be played while sitting in a seat so that you can move your feet as if playing a hi-hat and bass drum, which is ideal. This type of practice pad has an attractive price as well.
The most popular practice pad with stand is the Yamaha Training Pad TS01S, which has a rubber batter head. The stand and pad do not require any assembly, and you can start practicing on a firm foundation immediately. It is relatively inexpensive, but it is sturdy and has a good feel, and it is one of the most widely-used practice pads of its kind.
