Product Features


What is noticeable on first appearance is its unique vertical structure, which is wholly unlike the multitude of solely horizontal practice pads which have gone before.


Each ‘ToneAlly’ has 4 separate ‘Allys’ to accommodate the various ‘hand-grip’ positions:


Matched Grip

Use the outside ‘Allys’ for Germanic grip and the inside ‘Allys’ for American grip.   Work on your French grip one hand at a time before working on the strike pad with both.  Then utilise the wider space between the ‘Allys’ provided for this purpose. 


Traditional Grip

This is for both left-handed and right-handed players alike. Choose the ‘Allys’ that are best suited and the most comfortable for your preferred grip and get started.  With the trajectory of the stick being taken care of by the device, you can practise using the correct muscle groups straight away. This is something that would normally take many years of practice and study to develop and understand.


‘ToneAlly’ is a teaching tool for all who wish to maximise their learning of stick control.  It promotes efficient stick movement, resulting in less wasted energy, ultimately allowing the player to perform without tension and with greater dynamic control.  The neat 80x40mm strike pad enables you to feel and hear every note.  The ‘Tone’ changes dramatically if you play off the sweet spot!  The size of this gives a clear indication of how accurate the trainer guides you to be.
