  • A Question about Double Kick on MDS-20BK?

    Buying a new TD20 kit... but I've always played in a setup similar to simon phillips, more "centered" kit around the snare and two kicks up front.

    My question is to existing users of the MDS-20BK rack - is there enough room to fit two roland kicks there? Or do i need to add another section to the rack and what is that part #? WIll that screw up cable routing?

    Thanks in advance.

    why would you want the expense of two kick pads and not just use a double kick pedal?

      Perhaps for a different sound for each kick.

      I would think you'll need a different stand if you want to use two TD20 kicks and have them symetric. But maybe someone has done it here...

        I like the feel and look of two singles. The response is also much better.

          I could think of a few reasons for 2 kicks.....

          - visual appeal
          - 2 different sounds
          - you have a backup kick in case one decides to stop working.....
          - 2 single pedals seem to come out cheaper than a double pedal (in Australia)
          - allows you to leave the double kit setup in your home/studio and take a small kit when playing away by taking some select components and an SPD or second rack
          - GAS
