Utilizing magnets and an interchangeable “puck”, calibrate the feel and sound of your pad to suit your every need. With ease, Each Aurora Series Puck twists out of the pad to quickly change to a different puck for a new sound. The puck sounds include snare, sound dampening, shaker, and jingle.
There are 3 styles of pads are available that utilize the Aurora Series Pucks.

Offworld Aurora Series Puck Options
A fully adjustable snare sound with as much or as little “sizzle” as your ear desires. Features a more musical tone than the rocky “crunch” of the Aurora Shaker.
Think quiet. This dampener offers a bit more silence than having no puck at all. Featuring a felt bottom, it will rest flat on any smooth surface.
The Shaker offers a bit more “crunch” than the Aurora Snare puck. The Aurora Shaker contains metal beads for a unique sound. Think Maracca! Hot tip: you can even use this puck as a maraca in a pinch.
Use this to connect to stand to create a stable platform for your Aurora Series practice pad in a snap. A quick TWIST unlocks the hold and lets you take your pad with you while the puck remains attached to the stand. Additionally, this puck features a neoprene bottom so you can play it laying flat on any surface. Available for us with an 8mm threaded cymbal stand or a ¼-20 stand.
