The Roland KD-120 V-Kick Trigger Pad incorporates the mesh drumhead design utilized by V-Drums. This sturdy, accurate pad offers exceptional quality that will outlast even the most powerful performances.
this was to replace the stock roland bass pad that came with my kit, which was good but a little noisy for the environment it needed to be used in. this drum is heavy, built like a tank, and has the superior mesh bounce much like the roland snare pad, but for the room noise is very quiet, and the vibration factor is much reduced, so for apartment drumming, it is perfect
very satisfied with this purchase, thanks
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Overall great product... Good job ROLAND! Ordered on the website, shipped very quickly... Packaged perfect... I'm loving this kick drum.. Mesh head is awesome and it's a big hitting area which is great for double kick. It's a substantial size in comparison to the rubber roland electric kicks, but the overall response is great with my DW pedals. Just don't use the felt pads of your kick pedal as it will mark them up over time. Like I said earlier, it's really made well... It should hold up for quite awhile. It's a bit pricey, but you do get what you pay for.
I was convinced to get a KD-8 pad because I had heard these KD-120 mesh pads got too much bounce to use as a reliable bass drum due to the difficulty in controlling the beater's rebound. After having used both now, I would recommend this one without question. It's quieter with a much nicer noise, and it's bigger and sturdier. It does get an awful lot of bounce, but if you simply wrap your beater heads with some cloth, you can eliminate that completely if it bothers you.
I bought the Roland KD-120 kick pad to accommodate a double kick pedal I wanted to use with my Yamaha DTX kit. The Roland kick pad was easy to assemble, it only took about 5 minutes to pull it out of the box, assemble, and hook-up with my existing kit. You may need to adjust a little to fit the kick pedal exactly how you want it, but that didn
I've played a number of different kick triggers from several different manufacturers, and this is far and away the most solid, realistic feeling electronic kick trigger. It's so expensive it makes me want to slap sombody, but its money well spent nonetheless.
that's the best way to describe this pad. Not only is there no mistriggering, but it's built like a tank. I actually prefer this over an acoustic bass drum, and look foward to buying another one to use as a second kick.
