Comments about Roland KD-A22 Kick Drum Converter:

I already had the roland td50 kv and was waiting for this to finally make it to me. I had previously been using a roland bass trigger on a single ply mesh head on a 22 inch bass. I would rate myself as normal skill with single roll speed but would rate myself way above average on heal toe technique. I noticed that my heal toe style suffered with the single ply mesh head compared to 1. a real bass drum 2. the other roland bass pads. and 3. Axis ekit. Literally.... the first hour playing this thing, I was ripping rolls on my feet that I had only previously done in my prime on the ekits but it has less machine gun style and more realistic sound as well as more realistic fee. The only downer I have so far is that the strike zone could be maybe a little bigger but in reality if you are shelling this kind of money out this, you better be willing to be surgical in setting it up so that it wont be a factor.

It's a KD-9 with the "give" of a real kick drum

    Comments about Roland KD-A22 Kick Drum Converter:

    This is the magic combination for good kick drum feel. On many other e-drum kicks, you get too much recoil which results in false "double-triggers". This is basically a Roland KD-9 pad imbedded in a kick drum head which helps absorb the shock without creating a double trigger. It genuinely feels and triggers more naturally than any other e-drum trigger I have tried.
