    I haven't played much with it since it's not finished yet (glue, paint, etc). But I can tell you that's certanly much quieter. Not so much in the same room but a relief for my family in the rest of the house and the neighbours downstairs.
    And as Claymore said It's easier to play than the *perverted* beaters.

    Hielko, the angle of the plate is to make the KD-7's small rubber pad to be vertical and aligned with the beater.
    Originally I considered disamble the KD-7 and mount the trigger (rubber part and ring) directly in the wooden plate. In this way I could mount this plate vertically making the cutting of the lateral plates much more easier. But after considering the risks I abandoned the idea.

    I have built three of those similar to yours. I have one for the KD-7 (with a single upright member). One for the Pintech Ergokik and one to mount a Pintech CC-101-ST. They may not be much quieter but they certainly work better. Those beaters were never meant to be inverted!!! Bad mechanics!!

    P.S.: The Pintech CC-101-ST feels the closest to a real drum and is the quietest!

    Louder. No doubt! I wonder if the pedal can hit it. Sure you want that angle with a normal padel?

    Nice thing btw.

    The plate were the KD-7 will be hold is a little too thick so I'm planning to replace it.

    I haven't glue it yet. I wanted to try it to see if the size and everything is ok. So far so good!
