Phone Book Snare Practice Pad





Introduction: Phone Book Snare Practice Pad

Make a snare drum practice pad for free out of a phone book!  I used clear packing tape to

tape the phone book shut on all four sides.  Then I made a square "strike zone" out of

masking tape. Next I covered the whole thing with more clear tape.  I laid this on the arm of

my couch to practice. It wanted to slide around so I used two tape loops to stick a piece of 36

grit sandpaper to the back. Now it stays put.

Does this work well enough (i.e. is there enough tension on the top) to practice double stroke rolls and the likes?

Yes, but tension not required. Practice on a pillow for best results. 15 minutes, two or three times a day, after a couple months you'll definitely see improvement. If you can do doublestrokes on a pillow, you're the tops. Don't count on the bounce, develop your wrists, and gain speed slowly. Learn the rudiments inside out, and if you're right handed, work your left twice as much.
