  • TD17 Question about Dual Kickdrums (KD 10)

    Hi I am new here so I hope I don't get hammered too bad for my question. I saw threads asking about this but not for dual kickdrums so.....

    I recently got a TD-17 KVX kit and have never liked double kick pedals so I acquired a second KD 10 E kickdrum (I have always used 2 bassdrum pedals on all my acoustic kits over the years). I wanted to use the extra input on the TD-17 module for a third upper tom so I wondered if a Y cable would work for my dual kickdrum setup? If not I will be using the extra input on the TD-17 module for the second kick.

    I have been playing since '81 but this is my first E kit. I did have a DTXtreme module years ago but I am really a total E drum noob. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    E kit- Roland TD17 KVX, Axis A Longboard kickdrum pedals X 2, KD 10 kick pads X 2, DW 9000 remote hi hat, Roc n soc Nitro throne

    congrats.. with 2 the same e-pedals, a mono to 2 mono split should work in the bass drum input..

      would it not work if you had 2 different bass triggers?

        if the dynamic behaviour/ signal is similar of both kick pads .. if you had one hotter piezo (than the other) than not as good..
        (in my opinion)

          If you use two kick triggers, each into their own input, surely you can adjust each of the trigger settings to match each other.

          Sorry but I'm not familiar with the TD-17 so I might be talking crap.

            in terms of accuracy of triggering/performance or is it an issue for the module?

              sure .. i was answering this .. i used 2 kd-7's for a long time .. and that's the same triggers and a splitter ..
              in one input (the same) you need the same dynamic signals (for best results).. it's 1 trigger setting.. with mono..
              i don't know if the kick plug on the cable is stereo.. but i still would use 2 the same pedals..

                Thanks for the responses fellas. I will give it a try. I went with a stereo Y so I will need the mono (like ericdrumz mentioned). Y splitter was pretty cheap so no biggie.

                I had no clue I just guessed stereo thinking the TD-17 might have a softer and a harder kick sound depending how hard you played the bass drum pedal.

                  I decided to look at the ad page for the Roland KD 10 kickdrum at the place that gives candy with your order .

                  I noticed it comes with a cable and it has two rings around it
                  (2 rings indicates a stereo cable right?)

                  Like I mentioned- I have very little E drum experience/knowledge so perhaps I am incorrect as far as E drum connections go.

                  Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help

                        Roland kick input usually dual zone but kd10 is a single zone. I think you can use split 1 stereo into 2 mono and use 2 kd10s. Try that.

                            i don't see why it would be dual zone, when all sounds are listed 'head' only (for kick) ?
                            multicore cable ('kik' or 'kd') plug looks mono to me https://img.imuso.co.uk/imusouk/prod...re-1-44933.jpg > but i can always be wrong..

                              Just checked my KD-10:
                              The connector from the TD-17's multicore cable snake to the Kick drum is mono
