  • KD-140 double bounce

    I am getting a double bounce (physical) on my kick drum. Is that caused by having the head too loose or too tight? I will try adjusting this weekend but thought I would tap the knowledge bank here for your experience.

    Pedal spring adjustments and technique can also contribute.
    That said, tightening up mesh head tends to solve problems as a general rule. :-)

      Thanks, I will give it a try. I did not have this issue on my KD-8. I've also never adjusted the springs on my pedal. Maybe it's time to try that as well.

        I agree adjust the pedal first the head still needs to be tight so you do not ruin the piezo and cone.

          For the KD140 drum head, how tight is tight? I did tighten it out of the box and a little more yesterday and a little more today. It is more of an effort to turn the key. I don't want to over do it.

            It sounds like you have it tight enough at this point. You could try a bass drum patch such as a Remo falam slam. It protects and lessens the bounce.

              Thanks I have an Evans patch on it already. Do you think the beaters that came with the TD30KV would make a difference? I am using the one that came with the DW7000 with the plastic hitting the drum head.

                No, pretty much should be the same. But with the patch on you could try a felt or cotton beater, that would make a difference. I have always just used the one that came with my DW3000 pedal.
