  • Gear4music dd305 drum pads

    i bought it thinking i could play the drums, it works but the kick pedals are terrible. I am on the verge of giving up as i cannot afford a full set and i do not know what bass drum pedal works with it. I did get this unit but the pedal does not work. Yamaha KU100 silent low noise kick pedal

    Any one know which pedal work on the machine? i have this machine but in dd305 https://www.gear4music.com/Drums-and...SABEgJLevD_BwE

    best wishes

    That Yamaha should work fine - IF the kick input of your pads support piezo triggers and not just a switch. If it only supports a switch then you're at a dead end, sorry. What does the manual say?

    Of interest... What cable you using? What input?

    and - not patronising - it is a KU100 and not the same-looking HH40?

    If you like that style of pad thing - sell yours and get a Yamaha DD65 (for example - and cheap enough 2nd hand) - that will support "proper" kick pedals, as well as your KU100.

      Hi thanks for the reply it is a KU 100 YAMAHA, it is not the HH40. The yamaha drum set very expensive and i going to keep the dd305 one. Thanks

        i tried two different clables both new. Then i put my old kick pedal in and it worked. So old one works, The KU 100 not.

          So it's likely your drum thing only supports a switch and not a trigger. Dead end.
