The vertical design of the Roland KD-8 Kick Trigger Pad gives drummers a better feel compared to reverse-type kick triggers. It also reduces trembling so you get nothing but solid kick sounds from your electronic drum. Can even accommodate double bass pedals--perfect for drummers who want to create complex rhythms. (Pedal not included.)

When i first got this, i was amazed at how good the quality of it was. But recently i bought a DW 9000 Double bass pedal. I quickly learned that this trigger pad is not made for double pedals. If your going to buy this and plan on getting a double bass pedal, think twice.
I bought my SPD S 6 months ago and I have been playing the kick patterns with my left hand on 7th pad and sometimes I stretch out my legs to play bass drum pattern in my acoustic kit till I bought this Awesome piece...!! I bought this product three weeks ago and "touchwood" no complaints so far and working great!! The good part is I can customize the patch in my SPD S and give various sound from the kick or any sound (even hi hat though it feels weird) and gets my job done!! I'm using my double bass pedals for my acoustic and using my old Yamaha single bass pedal for this one and it is really sounds awesome. I thought of Yamaha KP 65 for my SPDS since it is way cheaper but it was not available in the store when I'd been there so I bought this one but it didn't disappoint me. I strongly recommend this product!! 5 piece acoustic kit, enough cymbals, double bass pedals, SPDS and now this one for my SPD S...!! I dont know what else I would need anymore!!
I bought my KD-8 a few months ago and am very happy with it. I use a DM5, so the setup was fairly painless. I have used it exclusively since then and have no complaints. I have taken it with me to play live a few times with no ill effects, either. The appeal is the price, obviously, but the quality had me surprised. I think this pad is very good for everyday use for the normal drummer. It accomodated my double pedal with no problems, not even for triggering. The feel is responsive, and obtaining/maintaining speed in rolls is no issue. I wouldn't tour with it, but I would be more than willing to buy another of these pads.
