Robin Guy
In-demand session drummer, Robin Guy has given the thumbs up to the SOFTAPADS range of drum dampening and noise reduction products.

"I've been searching for the ideal system for teaching and practising drums for some time now, and until now nothing has been quite right," explains Robin, "whereas when I tried the Softapads I found they had a impressively realistic response, were hard wearing and fit the drum snugly, and most importantly, mute the volume but still are musical in tone - you can really hear all the different drums as you go round the kit."

Robin, who has played around the world for a huge number of diverse acts including Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, Faith No More, Rachel Stamp, GMT, Billy Liar and Eric Faulkner's Bay City Rollers to name but a few, has also been recently appointed Head Of Drums at The Hampshire School in Chelsea, where he recommends Softapads to his students as well as using them during teaching sessions, "...otherwise the cacophony would be insane!"

THE HARDER YOU PLAY THE STRONGER YOU GRIP!
FOR MUSICIANS ON THE MOVE


Keep bass drum pedals, hi-hats, keyboards, guitar FX and other instrument pedals firmly in place on any surface with new SOFTAMATS non-slip, ‘anti-creep’ musical instrument pedal mats. The unique, hard-wearing material is designed to
last, tried and tested by musicians for durability, reliability and strength of grip. SOFTAMATS work on all surfaces – wooden floors, laminated floors, vinyls, tiles, carpet and are particularly useful on stage or in the theatre pit, just place the SOFTAMAT in position between the pedal and the floor (flat side up on carpet – flat side down on other surfaces).

Status Quo drummer Matt Letley is a fan of the new product, “I like the idea that it’s a small mat, rather than a large rug, that I can just pickup at the end of the night and throw into my traps case.” Matt also endorses the SOFTAPADS drum pads, adding, “The bass drum pad is fantastic... Simple and effective, Softapads do the job perfectly.”


KEEP BASS DRUM PEDALS, HI-HATS, KEYBOARDS, GUITAR FX AND
ALL INSTRUMENT PEDALS FIRMLY IN PLACE ON ANY SURFACE!
