Just tight enough to make the surface feel good to play on. After a certain point, tightening the head more does not directly result in a tighter or harder playing surface because of the way that RamPad works. There is a combination of materials underneath the head, and the are compressed by the tension of the head to provide a great feel. Be careful to not over tighten the head. Occasionally tightening it a quarter turn or so should bring the pad back up to a great feel.
Can I change the head?
Absolutely! RamPad uses a standard 10” drum head, and the RamPad TenorPack uses standard marching tenor drum sizes.
Will RamPad fit on a snare stand?
Yes! Most snare stands on the market will hold the RamPad perfectly so you can position the pad where you need it to be when you are practicing.
