Kick drum trigger

Man I love this thing. I connect it to my drum pad to use it as a kick drum trigger, and it works great! I don't need velocity for what I do with the kick drum, so it works fantastic! Plus, this is a much cheaper option than other kick drum triggers you can buy. I would definitely buy this again.

Tap Tempo extension pedal

I use this with my Visual Sound Dual Tap Delay to change the tempo. Works perfect and it is built like a tank. Use this to avoid tap dancing on your pedalboard to change the tempo onstage.

I like these switches

I like this switch I bought another one and will get more as time goes by.

I got this for my delay pedal, and it's very durable. It almost feels like a rock when you touch it on top. On the bottom is strong rubber. Surely this is one of the best nonlatching footswitches out there.


This switch is perfect. Got 3 of them under my Kurzweil K2600 and couldn't be more pleased. Solid construction with a small (but not too small) footprint. I plan on getting more of these for my other synths.
