"The Sledgepad exceeded our expectations. The punch was focused and very on point. The mic tray for the 91 is awesome. It really allowed the mic to do its job. We always use rental kits. The pad rolled up nicely and was easily fed through the mic port. Everyone loved it! Roger said it has a nice feel and that it took away any unwanted tones perfectly. Thanks for having us. You without a doubt have a winner on your hands! Cheers from team Foghat..."
