  • Krigg Kick Drum Trigger - one problem - pedal recommendations?

    Got my Krigg a couple of days ago and got it all hooked up to my Yamaha (cheap-o) pedal and - woah, that thing is quiet.

    Took me some playing around to get it feeling workable without the beatre (funnily i had to take some of the spring tension off - most people say they increase it) to get good heel-toe and fast doubles - but now have it dialled in pretty nicely.

    Now left with one problem: It moves!

    Because the kick pedal I have it hooked up to is the generic "get it free with a dtxplorer" yamaha pedal it is pretty unstable - it has no base plate - just two bars running to the heel (see attached pic). Because of this, and the fact the krigg its-self offers no support, it keeps tipping over forwards and sliding around - obviously this is not an issue when it is anchored to a big ol' kp65.

    So - does anyone have any recommendations for a cheap, stable kick pedal that plays nicely with the Krigg? (I am in the UK) - or is there anything I can do to my pedal to stop it tipping over?

    I'm pretty sure you'll be good with any pedal that has a base plate. You can put a quality double-sided tape on the bottom of the base plate and it won't move. At least that's what I'm using for 2 years now ...

      Thanks Triggera! I am really enjoying the Krigg - it is a really nice solution to the bass drum noise issue. I have put a little felt pad where the bolt hits it (the yamaha pedal has a bolt underneath that holds the strap on). Hasn't affected triggering. Other than the movement issue (which is the pedal not the krigg) It is great.

      Now to find a cheap-o pedal with a base plate.

        I've heard that some people have attached a string to the pedal and knotted it to their throne, so that their own body-weight prevented it from slipping!

        I'm not sure anymore if this was to stop the pedal from moving.... - could be they tried to stop the bassdrum, actually...

          Yeah - its more subtle than that - because the Yamaha pedal I have has no baseplate - ust the tower to keep it stable it kind of 'tips over' backwards when I get enthusiastic.
