  • Is angle of beater important on KD7?

    I'm a VDrums newbie and am setting up my KD7 with a DW 5000 pedal. I've got the beater centered on the trigger pad, but it's not hitting perfectly square when you look at it from the side.

    Is this important? Should I try to find a way to adjust the pedal more so that it's hitting perfectly centered and squared?

    Thanks!

    I assume by 'square' you are referring to the beater hitting the KD-7 on the same angle? ie. Hitting the pad flat.
    If this is what you are concerned about there is no need to worry. A flat hit may improve the feel slightly but won't help trigger the unit any better.

    , 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...
