  • Double Bass Pedal for Roland KD9

    Hi all, does anyone know if the Pearl P932 Demonator Double Kick Pedal will work ok on the Roland KD-9 pad? Thanks

    No reason why not.

      The KD-9 has a flexible attachment plate and there is nothing above the plate that limits how far you can push the pedal in. Pretty much any bass drum pedal will work with the KD-9.

      If you're using a double pedal with the KD-9, you may need to adjust sensitivity in your module. With a double pedal, Roland recommends setting the pedal so each beater hits slightly off center (respectively, just left of center and just right of center). When you hit center on the KD-9 (as you would with a single pedal), the KD-9 has more output. Consequently, with a double pedal where the beaters strike slightly off center, you'll get less output from the KD-9, which is why you may need to increase sensitivity in your module.
