  • KD9

    ...am I right in thinking this is a MESH head? I personally prefer the rubber bass drums and use a KD-8 but wouldnt mind something sturdier....

    To the best of my knowledge, the really nice feeling KD-9 has actually a CLOTH surface, similar to the tom-pads on the HD-3.

            The KD-9 has 'Foam under Cloth', I believe.
            If you are looking for a rubber kick-pad in particular, there are some 'usual suspects':


            Roland KD-8





            Yamaha KP-65







            Roland KD-7 (...if you are looking for 'compact')





            ...and then of course, there's an unique option (for any regular bassdrum pedal), that works without a beater at all:


            Triggera Krigg

              [Addedum to my post above]

              After re-reading your original post, if you are just looking for something sturdier, consider the bigger Yamaha KP-125 (not to be confused with the newer, silicon-surfaced KP-125W. I'm talking about the older one, with the dark rubber surface!)



              Also, before you go out and buy any of this: Have you tried attaching your existing KD-8 to a vertical T-Leg or a stand, by utilizing a multiclamp of some sorts, like this?

              (It works for a KP-65, it ought to work in some way for the KD-8, too!)

                      What Cheddies said! - They are just kick-triggers, no dual-zones, no rim-switches, no pedal-polarity, nothing! Just a monaural trigger; a piezo on a rubber surface! Period!


                      ...and NO Sir, you're not alone with this!
                      I prefer the firmer feel of rubber over mesh too, and can live with the added noise. That would make for two of us - at the very least - but then, there seems to be some others too:

                            For a kp65 or a kp125? Seems pretty steep to me.
