Comments about Axis Electronic Conversion Kit:

For years I tried the typical bass drum triggers that attach to the head. Had all kinds of issues with false triggering, double triggering, missed hits, having to adjust my playing style and stuffing and tuning the bass drum head so far out of the norm as to completely kill the acoustic sound of it to help prevent all the triggering errors.

Then I discovered these eKits and they were a Godsend. Triggering issues vanished. I could tune my bass drum back to a normal sounding acoustic bass drum and most importantly play normally without having to worry about hitting the kick hard enough or hitting other drums soft enough. The triggers work flawlessly and you can set up a variety of trigger parameters to get virtually any response you desire.

If there are any latency issues you can adjust the sonic hammer to hit fractionally sooner than actual bass drum impact. You do need to reset the hammers which Axis calls calibrating them every time you remove your pedals and then re-attach. Sometimes the last used settings stay intact but it's always best to check.

I find that tightening the sonic hammer tight enough where it won't move during normal or even extreme playing but you can still adjust by hand works best. I find that I can bury the beater in the head and leave it there and even bounce my foot minimally without causing unwanted triggering. If extra triggers do occur you just need to calibrate it fractionally closer until the unwanted triggering stops.

Another great aspect is that if you have to play on someone else's kit or a house kit, you only need to bring your pedals and module and have a great triggered kick sound while everyone else has mud.

I'm not crazy with reversing the beater and using the supplied attachment because you have to radically adjust the angle of the footboard to get a normal distance between beater an impact but it is convenient if room is tight and you want two separate pedals or even to trigger other sounds.

Comments about Axis Electronic Conversion Kit:

If you have Axis pedals, these are the single best triggers to use. Once you get them dialed in, they will work on even the cheapest module with little double triggering or other errors, especially if they are split between two kick drums.

I am using a DM5 module, and I've had problems with drumhead triggers crosstalking, false triggering, double triggering, and missing notes due to playing a variety of stroke styles: heel-toe, fast single rolls, and hard single hits. Since I've started using these, it's been less of a struggle to get all those techniques to trigger acurately.

Like all triggers, you really have to focus on playing clean and consistent. Dont buy these or any trigger expecting them to turn your sloppy strokes into machine gun fire. No more resting your beaters on the drumhead, especially when using a double pedal on a single kick. If you play clean, these trigger clean 100% of the time on any module.

That being said, these are a little tricky to adjust. Here are a few things to keep in mind while adjusting these:

-you pretty much have to make sure the detonator (hammer) strikes the sensor at the precise moment the beater makes contact with the drum head. Too soon and you will false trigger every time the beater comes near the head unintentionally in adition to even attempting heel-toe, too late and you will get double triggers because the detonator will vibrate above the sensor after a hard note. These issues are compounded if you rest your beaters on the drumhead when using a double pedal configuration, since one beater will send a shock through the other beater into the trigger (but this is kind of a problem with any trigger on a single kick drum).

-Make sure the detonator is firmly tightened to the main pedal axle. If it is not tight enough, it will slowly rotate forward each heavy note, messing with your triggering and even breaking the wire. I did this but Axis customer support is super cool and sent me out a replacement detonator for super cheap.

I was surprised at how well these triggers support a velocity curve, meaning on my module I was able to set the sensitivity of the trigger to get a more natural, less machine-like sound. Hit light, get a soft trigger voice. Hit hard, get a loud trigger voice.

I don't really like the beater practice stop idea. I tried them out and they feel way different than a regular practice pad. Still, it's a way to do a little muscle memory training without bulky bass pedal practice pads.

While these may not be the cheapest triggers, I have found that they work the best with cheaper modules than any other trigger. You can get away with a beginner level module, bringing your whole trigger setup to less than half a grand, yet still retain the cleanliness of expensive Roland setups. Surely, If you want a better module you will only get more reliable triggering. I tried these out on a nice roland and they triggered flawlessly for an hour straight on a double pedal setup, but still, they make very few mistakes on my outdated, cheap DM5 module.

If you have axis, get these if youre looking into triggering. It's the cheapest and most reliable way to trigger these awesome pedals! Most metal dummers who are endorsed by Axis and use triggers, use THESE triggers, and for a good reason.

    Comments about Axis Electronic Conversion Kit:

    I put the ekits on my Axis X double pedal and they work quite nicely. My only qualms with the product are it takes a little time and technique adjustment to learn to play with these without setting off the trigger accidentally. Also when you move your drum set you will have to readjust the hammer positions. Besides those two things the ekits work phenomenally. I have them hooked up via a y cable to my roland spds and I use the one trigger out put on the device for my kick drums and it all worked from the moment I plugged it all in. I'm able to play fast rolls with every note picked up by the triggers. This is exactly what I wanted and couldn't be happier with the product.
