The Darkside™ is a recent installment to OffWorld Percussion’s unique Aurora™ Series of modular practice pads. Like the Visitor™ before it, the Darkside™ features all Birch construction and the Aurora™ exclusive magnetosphere core, giving you the flexibility of adaptation. At about 3 pounds, the Darkside™ is 11 1/8″ in diameter, with a 9.25″ Darkmatter™ playing surface. It is 1 1/2″ tall with thicker layers over the center core to give you a more reactive playing surface.
Over all, the Darkside™ provides enough bulk to create a stable and responsive playing experience, yet still be sized for easy fit in any backpack or gear bag. This comes standard with a 1/4-20 Cymbal stand adapter (aka Docking Module), and the adjustable Snare Puck. All other Aurora™ Series accessories can be adapted to the Darkside™, which is also available in Black, Gunmetal and Blue Chameleon VML surfacing.
OffWorld Percussion Aurora Series DarkSide Practice Pad
In order to produce the unique look and feel of DarkMatter™, this special material is mixed under heat and pressure and poured directly onto each practice pad then allowed to “open-air” cure. Any product which begins life as a hot liquid that solidifies once cooled will naturally show variation between each version. Swirls, tiny bubbles, even the occasional dust speck, are all normal variations. Be assured that an enormous amount of care goes into mitigating these effects as much as possible, and know that these differences in no way effect the playability or quality of the DarkMatter™ surface.
