  • KD-120 setup

    For any V-session owners (or any KD-120 owners), did you guys tighten the head of the kick trigger before playing on it like the other drums? Just curious. I gave it a quick tighten to be on the safe side but now the head is very bouncy. I want to loosen it to see if it will help with the feel. But I don't want to damage it by loosening it to much.

    P.S. Why does Roland ship the heads loose like that?

    To prevent the head from stretching when it's lying somewhere for a year?

    Music was my first love...

          scratchcat,

          I tightened at first but didn't like the bounce so then I loosened it a bit. It's not quite as loose as when it arrived but it's not tight. I've had no problems since then but I'm not a really big hitter. I don't think that the drum is that delicate though and I sometimes lay into it a bit. My advice - don't worry about it just get it to feel how you like it.

          Alex.

            Remember the head tension adjustment in your manual Loose,Normal,Tight Page 31&32 TD 10 Manual worked 4 me with KD 120

            Thanks Doug
