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.

Weak. We had buyed at least 5 of this for a Yamaha DTX Extreme IV drum set in our church, we use this kit instead of an acoustic drum set because the high level sound in not a chance for us. About the KP65 is cheaper compared with the Roland or the Yamaha KP100, but is just a few days of work you must to prepare it because the Kick drum fail without notice. Always is the same problem, the sensor unstick to the sticker of the metal part, and i had wanted to repair but i dont have good results. So i need to buyed another.

Having in mind the high probability of fail, we are thinking in the enviromental care, and maybe Yamaha must sell just the sensor spair and not the whole KP65 PAD, it include a metal chasis, the box, the delivery from the store (and other), so our recomendation is not a madnesss! we now have a collection of 5 metal chasis. Why sell whole pad and not the sensor part?

You can change the hammer of the kick set drum pad hammer with a softer hammer but the result is the same; FAIL.

The sound and the sensitivity is good, but is very weak and expensive. The Roland kick drum pad for the TD family is much better of the yamaha.

I´ll recomend a Roland drum kit set instead a Yamaha, because almost of the Yamaha electronic Kit drum include the KP65.

decent product, but SINGLE PEDALS ONLY

By Raffi

from East Bay, CA

See all my reviews

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

not a bad product but do not buy if you use a double pedal. there is simply not enough room for both beaters to hit. one beater will hit too close to the edge and not properly trigger as a result. if you are using a single pedal however, it feels great and i would highly recommend it.

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

I bought this for an old DTX kit. Works great! Even with a double pedal. I use a DW 3000. You have to position the beaters even distance from the edge of the pad.

      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.

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

        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.

            The bass drum trigger on an older model DTX set at our church went out so I got this to replace it. It took about a minute to screw on the base and plug it in ready to go. The KP65 has a better feel and response than the original kick tower and has a better look as well. Completely satisfied.

            I replaced an old Pintech Kick with this Yamaha. Then I did a two day session with it, running through an Alesis D4. Not one missed beat, no false triggers, and it played more like a real drum than any other eKick I've played. It's huge compared to the Pintech, but I don't care. It works great and plays great. And the price is very friendly, too.

            I've been playing drums for 20 years and I resently switched from an acoustic drums to a Electric drums. I have a SIMMONS SD5-K And my old kick tower was shorting out, missin' hits. I checked around and MF Tech told me that the YAMAHA KP-65 would work so I tried it, and it works great.I bought this kick tower though Musician Friend 3 weeks ago and I Love this tower. I would recommend it for any electric drum kit.

                    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.
