  • Any tips with UFO eBridge kick drum A2E install?

    I currently have a KD9 that I mounted inside an 18 acoustic kick drum, and the KD9 is failing. Im going to pull it out and try to install the UFO eBridge trigger system and mesh head which will be connected to the Pearl Mimic Pro, so if anyone has any tips Id welcome them!

    I use UFO eBridges on my A2E kit paired with my Mimic.

    I also have an 18" bass drum and it triggers just fine. I couldn't be happier. The UFO eBridges for the kick come with a beater pillow that eliminates the need for pillows and blankets.

    My only tip is to follow the instructions. It's an easy install.

        I am also using the UFO eBridge with my 18" kick with a Remo Silent Stroke head and it works perfectly. It's an easy installation and set up. Like SF says, just follow the directions that come with the trigger and your good to go.

            as you probably already know, make sure you use a straight edge across the shell next the the trigger cone. the cone should be about 1/16" to 1/8" above the shell's bearing edge .
            i have one on my 20" kick along with a drum-tec real feel head. and plays and triggers fantastic.

              I upgraded to the conical cone and larger piezo (35mm). This is probably overkill since the octacone and smaller piezo would work just fine for the kick. I also got the long stem TRS jack. Total was about $76.

              Oh yeah, I'm also using a Billy Blast 3-ply mesh head with an Evans beater patch.

                    Just curious... did the KD9 fail? Or you think it fails in it's application within the bass shell?
                    If the KD9 is broke, I believe there's instructions, youtube, on how to repair the KD9... Something to consider, if the KD9 works for you.
                    Note: I tried the KD9 on my conversion and it just was not good enough. I wound up with a bar trigger.
