  • Converting Remo Practice Pad using KD-8

    I have a spare KD-8 and was wondering if I would be able to rip out the insides and just put them in an old Remo practice pad for a bass drum pad. Would this work or would there be any problems I'd need to deal with? (Besides a mesh head not fitting and a stand)
    Would it be better to use the cone from KD-8 or just put the piezo under the practice pad foam?

    if you sandwich piezo between 2 thin layers of foam, and if it can't shift position.. but making those practice pads 'triggered' won't
    make them 'great' pads .. (and there's not much depth to work with..)

      Just bought a cheap "16 acoustic bass drum instead and more easy to convert it.
