AwsomeI've had one for 6 years now and its been great. I recently got a second as a gift and its fantastic. I had to adjust the volume setting a little on the trigger, but after that it was great. I'm used to a double pedal on my acoustic kit, and I love having the ability to put each foot EXACTLY where I want it, without compromising other hardware. My real kick drum is always creeping away from me, and these stay put! Also works great with Alesis DM series modules. Sweet pedal and built like a tank

KD-7s. 2 of them takes up less space than a....I have been playing KD7 triggers for 6 years now and couldn't be happier. Both triggers (dbl. kick setup) are permanently mounted to my kick pedals. Both pedals (with triggers attached) fit nicely into ONE case and take up less room than a dbl. kick pedal with a universal joint in the middle PLUS the 12 trigger and support stand. The 12" head-trigger setup (with the support brackets) sticks out PAST the cage and requires a larger drum-riser-footprint...this sucks! The KD7s are spiked and velcro-ed to the carpet and don't move at all...SOLID. The rubber trigger surface also allows for some extra bounce (that doesn't exist with a drum)...which allows for some easy kick drumming. If Roland stops making these, I will truely be pissed!

jimmy like!Oh golly. Uhhh...well, OK! I have been kicking my KD-7 like a drunken' Bonham for 2-3 hours a day for close to a year. I know the guy's don't want to hear this but......If I had to play a V kit like my TD-10 V-Pro live, I would feel way 'mo betta' than if I was chasing a KD-120 all over the dang stage! And having to worry about crunghing the trigger. So...being afraid some cute little girl is going to steal your kick technique or laugh at your chicken ankles is no excuse to spend $200.00 more. You don't look that much cooler in your bedroom anyway! Oh? You do take those things on stage? Well...thats ok. I would as well if monitors slamming me with 120 db were not three feet from my stupid head! So has to get the same effect, right? Seriously...for studio purpose's if a guy can not hack the V-PRO'S, and just has to have his accoustics 'cause "I just can't feel it on the weave babe", maybe he should consider getting that sex change after all. And girls, you can play V-PROS any where any time as long as you use a KD-7 AND A FD-7 because us guys like to look at your legs and little feet just a-kik'en away! Thank you for having me. jimmy jim mit the nit
