  • Ddrum 4 kick pad - convert to mesh

    Hi all!
    I have an old Ddrum 4 kick pad, and I was wondering if theres a way to turn it into a mesh pad? Do you just buy a mesh head, or do you need to removed the large metal plate and foam, and replace it with a different piezo pickup?

    Thanks.

    I converted the pads from a ddrum4 removing all the internals and putting a ddrum redshot trigger on them. With the bass drum I tried this but didn't like the feel so I literally just changed the head to a mesh head leaving the foam and ddrum trigger on a plate. This made the pad significantly quieter.

            I got a cheap one but can't remember what it was as my son has this kit over at his mums now. I'm sure any will do as the foam is left in place anyway. Hope it works out ok. Oh by the way not too tight as the beater bounces too much and causes multiple triggers
