  • KD-7 Input

    I have a KD-7 and an old hi-hat contriller from a Pintec set (Hyperhat). Is there any way that i can use the Input function so i can have a double bass???? Or anything i can do with this old Hyperhat?

    , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

      The KD-7 will allow you to plug another trigger into the input jack on the KD-7 such as another KD-7 or another manufacturer's kick trigger for double bass.

        I made a verticle mount for my KD-7 about 2 yrs ago. It's one of the few things I don't have to tweak. Not a lick of problem. I'll post a pic on it. It was made for less than $5.00. Most of it was scraps from home or work.

        My guess is this version has less bounce than you get with mesh headed kicks. A slight adjustment of retrig canx was all I needed.

          I made a matching pair of floor mounts for two KD-7's to play double bass. I also made one for the Pintech ErgoKik and a mount for using a Pintech ConcertCast as a bass drum. This kinda mimics the VertiKik.

            Pic's posted above on home made upright kick using the KD-7. Obviously not rocket science, but the point is it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' and, my favorite part, it's dirt cheap.

              How about if you cut out a 20" or 22" plywood or cardboard circle to mount to the front and get a drum logo or the name of your band on the front side!!!

                Well Im thinking of learning double bass, Right now I have 1 KD7. It does'nt look like it will accomodate 2 bass beaters. I plan on buying a double kik pedal set "two beaters on one side" so I can use it with my acustic kit as well.
                Is there anything I can do " besides buy an addiitional bass trigger"
                I was looking at the PINTECH Ergokik but read the customer reviews, and they werent good, actually they were terrible.
                I also thought about getting a Pintech CC101 ConcertCast Drum Pad and mounting it on an LP Cowbell Floor stand. Id appreciate any ideas.

                Thanks

                  I also made a bracket to mount a CC-101-ST pad to use as a kick drum, but I didn't use it very long. I also replaced the head with a double ply head from Hart Dynamics.

                  I am not sure how a tom pad would stand up to the kick beater. The CK-V actually has a larger, more dense foam cone than the CC-101's to absorb the extra force of the beater.

                  I didn't like the feel of the ErgoKik. The padded surface is too hard.

                      Where do you get the drum hardware (rim, bolts, cleats)?

                          TC...thanks!

                          Clymore, I used an old sonor 13" tom. Spraypainted it white, spraypainted the lugs. I don't know what you mean by cleats?? I'm not fully satisfied with the bottompart but when i came up with a solution, i'll post new pics
                          Maybe suggestions???

                            I meant lugs. I noticed they were for one head only, like a Pearl Rhythm Traveler drum.

                            The drum shell looks like a giant piece of PVC pipe.

                              It's a 13" tom sawed in half. It's not PVC it's wood!
