Maybe i want to buy some pads for the tbrb drums. But what are the best pads? I've heard that the xcell pads are very good but maybe there are better ones? I think the tbrb drums are the same as the rb2 drums so they should work i think.

    Socks. Old socks. Seriously though I hear they have worked on quieting them.

    I am a big fan of the rock band official silencers they work really well.

    They also help to prevent damage to the drums because they cover the whole pad.

    yes, i know that the official pads and the xcell pads are the best. I think the official pads are good because they stiull have the color and i think the pads are nicer than the xcell pads. But i read somewhere that because they protect the rim there is a place next to the rim that is not sensitivy. I this true?

    Yes, the official silencers overlap the rim, so you might have reduced sensitivity if you hit near the edge of the pad. Some people solve this by removing the rims before applying the silencers.

    One advantage of the official pads is availability - you can buy them from many stores. If you want the xcell pads, there is only one place to get them, and from my experience, it may take a long time. I ordered xcell pads ten days ago, but I am still waiting for them and don't know if they've even shipped yet. YMMV.
