Use this with my Hart electronic drumset with mesh heads and DM5 module. Even though some reviews say a double pedal won't work , I have no problems. Just need to make sure to center the beaters and bring them as close together as you can with out touching eachother.The trigger works great and response of the pad is good too. Over all a great kick trigger for the $$$.
Have a Hart electronic drumset with mesh heads and DM5 module, Had a problem with the kick trigger pad breaking due to the pedal beater hitting to hard. Purchased the KP65 because it was inexpensive. So far works great. ( like the adjustment knob on the trigger)
Built well and seems sturdy ( time will tell ).
Great pedal for the price.

It's not bad, just not great feeling or durable.
This kick pad works ok. Feels a bit too much like a rubber ball.
My main concern is the longevity of this kick pad. I've killed 3 in a single year of gigging. If they weren't so darn cheap, I'd buy something else.
Well, you get what you pay for. If you dont play hard, it should go a couple years. I DO NOT recommend this to pros using it for gigs.

    Comments about Yamaha KP65 Electronic Kick Tower for DTXtreme IIS Kits:

    This works much better than the original Alesis factory pedal. Can put it pretty close to arm which means a lot less arm motion. Was a little tricky setting up because of design of original, but worked great when I turned the arm around and changed the angle of the arm on original.

            Church band, first time on electronic drums given to us. 20-year-old set had poor "bass pedal" that was hitting only 1 in 4 beats. This Yamaha worked out fine on the Roland set.

              Bought this new from Musicians Friend, but to be honest the way it was packaged when it was sent to me it looked as though it may have been a return? In any event it works great and I would recommend it.

                I purchased the KP65 as an addition to the DD65, which I use for songwriting demos. It made a huge difference in the playability of the kit replacing the little stomp button. For me, it feels plenty real and accomodates my double kick pedal easily. I have experienced no triggering problems with it, it is very hefty and I was pleased with the purchase right out of the box.

                  Bought this pedal to replace the KP65 Pedal that broke. The original pedal lasted almost 3 years with constant playing almost every weekend and some spattering of weekdays. Actually tried getting parts first but it was cheaper purchasing the entire pedal than fixing the old one.
                  Can't comment on how it compares to other towers but it works well with the DW3000 pedal I currently use..
