  • triggerhead!

    hi everyone, i have looking at ways to upgrade my club kit, reading stuff on the tdi page, and i am considering selling the two kd7's that i bought and purchasing a acoustic bass drum triggerhead, and go back to using my double kick pedal the way it was intented to be. this seems like an awesome idea and i was wondering if any of you can think of any reasonable advantage to using the kd7 over a triggerhead on an acoustic drum? i can't see any reason to not sell 'em. (this would just be my first step in making my hybrid setup.) opinions?

    It's really whatever gets you the sound and feel that makes you happy. You should try it out before selling your KD-7's.

    Something thats nice about KD-7's is that you can put them anywhere you want.

      Get a KD80 or KD120 (or any other Mesh kick pad)! They're more sensitive & expressive than yer hard rubber KD7's will ever be. Use a KD7 as an extra percussion trigger or something if you dig. I do! Your welcome!

        thanks for the comments, guys. yeah, i agree it would be best to try it out before selling the kd7's, but the problem there is the funds would be coming from their sale. by the way, i was referring in the first post to purchasing with kd-7 money a t-drum mesh head, not a kd80/120, and it being a 20 in. for my 20 in. A. bass drum. and after reading a recent similiar post i was questioning weather it would end up being more of a hassle than it's worth,(using my real bass drum to essentially just trigger, with the mesh head). do any of you feel that with a 20 inch, with a t-drum mesh head and and a head-mounted trigger, that i would actually have much difficulty?? someone seemed to think that it would'nt trigger effectively. any suggestions?
