Some of you may remember, in fact I know you do because you still call us from time to time wondering if this item is available again – the exceptional quality of the Martinez Close Up Pad. The good news – we got a shipment in! The bad news – since each one is personally hand crafted by David Martinez, the shipment is never enough and won’t last long.
Reserved for the classiest performers, it’s much more than just a close up pad. It’s a close up “Stage!” Words and photos simply cannot do this justice.
One thing people love is the fact that it features a larger performing area than a normal pad, it is approximately 23″ by 15″ and the level top stands 1″ tall. Included is a stiff, hard bottom, which features five non-slip pads. It weighs in at just a tad over 4 lbs., so it’s sturdy and solid.
This allows you the feature of picking up the pad without having to remove your props and also move them without the pad bending whatsoever! The performing surface is neatly covered in exceptionally unique, super soft plush black velvet. No snags here …
The board is cushioned calibrated to allow just the right about of bounce/squish, which is perfect for bowl routines, cups and balls, as well as the secret pick up for the “coins across.” No worries here – as there is plenty of room to spread out the cards.
Pad features rounded corners and is constructed of the finest quality materials and could easily last for the remainder of your performing career.
Note: Due to the variation in materials subtle color changes are possible. The photo is for illustration purposes.
