    Really good Kick drum trigger! Wasn’t sure whether to upgrade from my KD-9 as reviews on KD120 were mixed. Other reviewers said the beater bounced too much, wasn't much quieter and they actually preferred the KD-9. I use a Pearl Eliminator Pedal, which fits well enough (Apparently some pedals don’t fit too well) there is a small 5mm gap under the pedal at the beater end so yes it floats somewhat but this doesn’t effect the playing as locked on tight. Some have slipped a thin piece of carpet underneath to pack out the difference but I can’t see the benefit? There is a bounce if the head is too tight so i loosened the head slightly and it feels just like my 22inch Kick drum as i used the real drum as a guide for setting up the KD-120. Because a few folks mentioned the bounce being a problem, they said that replacing the head with triple ply mesh head (Remo) resolved the issue? However i don’t feel its necessary. A beater came with it which I wasn’t expecting, its a shiny plastic (not rubber) Roland beater, i tried it and it did feel slightly better than my Pearl Quadbeater. I think it’s because it is slightly heavier in weight, however as i wouldn’t use this on my Acoustic kit as i need to it to feel the same so I won’t be using the Roland beater. In terms of sound, you can still hear a dull thud when you strike the head which i feel is quieter, but the biggest difference is is that you don’t get the loud slap that you get from the PD-9 cushion when the plastic side of the beater makes contact. (Felt beaters can’t be used on the KD-9 or KD-120 as it wears holes in mesh) Its pretty heavy but still moves on a wooden floor so I’ll just cable tie the two back legs to the Roland frame as i have the smaller frame that came with an old TD-4 V-Drum kit. I have a TD-15 module which needed no adjustments to the triggering settings, just plug and play. Expensive is the only downside, but is it worth it? Jury’s out on that one.. I could of got by using the KD-9 just fine as its pretty good actually, I rarely get to use my acoustic kit unless we rehearse in a venue or on a gig, so the Roland kit gets used mostly for home practice and stripped down rehearsals with the band as easier and quieter. So for me it was a good buy, if i got to use the acoustic kit more i probably wouldn’t of bothered upgrading!

    I cannot say enough good things about this product, it's miles better to play than the pad that came with my Roland kit.
