Thick Fat Pads Custom Color - Akai MPC Element / Fly

ELEMENT-PAD exclusive Akai MPC Element/Fly Thick Fat Pad Set in various colors. The pads allow light to pass through just like the originals. These pads are more than 50% thicker than the standard MPC Element/Fly pads and include a set of Pad Corx. These pads are also softer than the original MPC Element/Fly pads. For the ultimate look and feel, the MPCstuff thick pads are a must for any MPC Element/Fly owner.


These new style pad upgrade will provide a very stable thicker, softer pad for your MPC Element/Fly. They offer clear bottoms so they will allow light to go through them. The original MPC Element/Fly pads can be a bit thin and stale feeling, that is where the Thick Fat Pads excel. The pads are available in various colors including completely clear. For extra sensitivity you can install the included set of Pad Corx. If you want even more sensitivity you can double up the Corx and install a second (purchased separately) set.
