  • Can't get DW9000 double bass pedals to fit onto KD120 pad.

    The chain drive/CAM is already touching the pad before I can even get the footboard latched onto the pedal. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks.

    You can angle the pad. Adjust the legs

      ^ Yup. Shorten legs, tilt forward, attach pedal, adjust angles. Done.

        I did what you guys suggested and was able to get it on...


        ...but now the back of the pedal is lifted up...


        ...so I tried lengthening the front legs so the back of the pedal was on the floor and now we're back at the same problem of the chain touching the hoop again. The pedal also slips off as well.


        Any other suggestions?

          You need an BD pedal rubber spacer. Most pedals come with them... or Just make one out of some thick rubber... about 1/4-1/2". Put it on or under the black metal before you attach the pedal. Clamp down on both. This should set the back end back down.

              ^ That's basically the same thing I was achieving with my suggestion. If you put a typical BD rubber spacer pad (the old rim protectors) under the Roland tray before you clamp, you get the same result.
