What happens when you blend elements of one of the world’s most popular practice pads with elements of one of the most flexible and forward-thinking concepts around? The Invader™ Hybrid!
From the top, this pad is, for all intents and purposes, an Invader™ V3. Featuring: our practically unbreakable stick-saving rim; our proprietary DarkMatter™ or natural rubber surface; and our removable and replaceable Vinyl/Mylar laminates. Everything you have come to expect from nearly 12 years of excellence! But wait, there’s more… Flip the pad over to discover the Aurora™ Series Magnetosphere™ core. The unique magnetic pocket turns the beloved Invader™ into a behemoth of rehearsal flexibility.
When played without inserts, the Magnetosphere™ core gives the Hybrid a vibrant and clearly resonant center; articulate and musical, you’ll know without looking when you are playing dead-on. Thirsty for a bit of snare sound? Insert the Aurora™ Series Snare puck for a bright sizzle. For a bit more crunch and darkness to the tone, try the Aurora™ Series Shaker instead. Want to use a cymbal stand or even an inexpensive camera tripod as a pad base? Try one of the Cymbal mount inserts (check your stand to determine the necessary thread).
The 1/4-20 mount also spins right down onto the Hammer™ carrier brackets to get your pad up and moving for use with your marching harness. For those that prefer the leg/thigh mount pads, try the KSM adapter. Need a little less volume or center tone? Try the Aurora™ Series Dampener puck.
