Get the Feel Without the Noise

If you want a practice pad with natural feel and silent
response, the PCK-1 Practice Conversion Kit is for you. Just swap out your snare head with the 14-inch mesh head, and you'll get a response that's so realistic you'll hardly notice the difference! Best of all, the mesh-head design—coupled with the included rubber rim silencer—makes your snare quiet enough to practice at any hour.

Works Great with the RM-2 Rhythm Coach

The PCK-1 includes Roland's RT-5S Snare Trigger with separate head and rim triggering. This lets you connect your newly converted 14-inch snare to products like the RM-2 Rhythm Coach, an integrated metronome and sound module with onboard rhythm training exercises.
