  • KT10 kick pedal

    Greetings earthlings.
    Would welcome any thoughts on the KT10 kick pedal.
    I am considering a purchase.
    Thank you.
    2nd hand TD12 kit (with faulty vh11). Amazing Triggera Krigg kick pad. Laney AH40.
    that's it...for now!

    I checked it out at NAMM. Very nice. To me it felt comparable to a direct drive type kick pedal. It has a more natural feel than the previous inverse beater type. It is also very quiet. It has adjustable spring tension and the weights are movable for different feel. So obviously quite a bit of thought went into the pedal. With all the advancements in kick pedals we've seen in the last decade it is nice to see some of that worked into a stand alone kick pedal/trigger IMO. Personally I still like a real drum and pedal, but if you are looking for a quiet stand alone kick pedal/trigger this one is very nice. J

      Jman, have you ever tried the E Pedal from Engineered Percussion (now Axis)? It was one of their first products (circa 1988 or so). I am wondering how the KT compares to it. The E Pedals are all machined aluminum, solid as a brick. I've been using them for over 25 years now. They look a lot like the current Laser pedal but with the foot board flipped 180 degrees.

      The stand-alone Yamaha pedal that came out last year is not nearly as nice as the E Pedal (no adjustments, flimsy by comparison). If the KT is considerably heavier than the Yamaha and has a decent range of adjustment I might buy one.

          Hi Jim, no never tried that pedal or an Axis for that matter, but I do own a Pearl Demon Drive, I'm not saying this pedal is just like the feel of a Demon Drive, but that is where I got the impression the new Roland pedal feels like a direct drive pedal to me. They do seem quite sturdy.

            I might have to try that pedal. Would be nice if it had a clamp for a bass drum hoop that provided enough clearance to operate. Mount it to your acoustic kick and no longer need for a trigger on the bass drum anymore. Does it offer any sort of resistance like drum head?

              This looks like it could be a very good product. I play metal so i will ask the annoying question about speed, will it be able to get a smooth feel while playing 200bpm and above using two pedals?

              Jman, from you trying it out do you think it is more a novelty as it is quiet to play or could this be a serious piece of kit that can be used? This is still from my point of view going back to potential speed from two pedals rather than just general playing/feel etc?

                Similar to speed drummer: would love a review on someone who's working out at [email protected] and above. How's it comparable to a standard beater-based trigger etc.
                Anyone could try it out at a local store?

                    Yes, Jman above checked it out, as did I at NAMM. It's a great piece of gear and I'm looking forward to doing a full review when production kicks off.

                      After four months, no-one has their hands (or foot) on one of these to review it. I am most interested, as electronic drums should not need to have conventional kick pedals hitting giant trigger assemblies. With the right design a kick trigger could be foot-sized and the Roland KT10 is the first serious attempt at addressing this. (We can ignore the Yamaha, KAT and Alesis attempts thus far made). I hope to be reading how great the KT10 is. What is taking so long?

                        -Actually it's been a little over 3 months since the KT-10 was debuted - Roland Connect (the web launch) was on January 15th, and the first day of NAMM was January 23rd.

                        The product simply has not shipped yet. As allan john noted he will review it, and Roland US will have the product in the hands (and under the feet) of the usual suspects as well. It is a great product, reasonably priced, and we truly appreciate everyone's patience. Our dealers are eager to receive it, and we are excited to have drummers play this great trigger pedal.

                          Yup. $229.00 is US MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) MSRP (list price) is $269.00.

                          Pricing was announced in January, prior to NAMM.
