  • Anyone use the buttkicker gamer?

    I saw it for today's stupid deal of the day where they take $20 off for a new unit.

    its going for $100 and free shipping today. Is it any good for e-drums?

    My kit is custom running 10, 12, 14" toms, a 12" snare, 2 crash, 1 ride, 1 splash, and dual kick drum all plugged into a
    Roland TD-6V module which runs MIDI to Superior Drummer 2

    It appears to me that the Buttkicker Gamer doesn't have the necessary power which is available from the more expensive models (based on comparisons in the following thread, not personal experience):

        I have it, and for just a little bit of feel it works. If you want it to rattle your cage though, forget it. I only bought mine because there was a rebate and with an amazon.com new CC it only cost me about $20 when all was said and done. So there was little risk.

        It definitely adds to the experience. However it's only powerful enough to run for bedroom practicing and it's pretty much maxed out. If there was a way to mount it directly to the seat instead of the post it would prob be better. I tried a few different ways, but on the post sitting on the leg braces seems to work best.

        If you can justify the expense, the one intended for pro use is the way to go.

              Dave,

              If you have an old amplifier you can try this for a cheap solution
