What is the best midi drum pad for marching percussion

I have been looking for midi drum pad controllers I can use with sticks and and have inputs recorded at the speed and frequency of hits like drumline percussion. I don't want to go and waste money when I only need it for this type of percussion. And I preferably don't like slowing the bpm down to record it, since most of the way I compose is through improvisation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I really don’t know anything about midi drum pads as I’ve only played on real marching snares but for an authentic modern day Drum Corps Drumline sound check out the “Originals” Blue Devils drumline samples Spitfire has. I own them and they sound great. I understand why you’d want a pad though. Can’t really play rudiments at speed on a keyboard.
