    Question Newbie question re kick drum pedal...

    Hi, quick question from a novice drummer. I bought my first ever kit, an Alesis Nitro Mesh and I must say Iím very happy with it. I read a few things saying that using a felt pedal on the kick (itís a rubber pad) was bad for it and would eventually cause excessive wear / damage. The pedal that came with the kit has both a felt side and a plastic side. I prefer the feel when using the felt side but donít want to use it if itís gonna wear out the pad! Therefore looking advice please!

    Many thanks for your help, I look forward to learning a lot on this forum 🧐

    Don't use felt, it will tear the mesh!

    Sorry, kick pad is rubber, Tom’s and snare are mesh.

    I don't know about the Alesis but I've used a felt beater on my Roland KD-8 kick pad for a long time without issue ...

    I feel that! I don’t think you should have any problems with the felt side of the beater. If anything the beaters would probably get worn out before the pad but that would take forever. Welcome to the forum!
