Default Re: FD-8 Kick pedal conversion

I've made a minor addition to the FD-8 pedal conversion to provide a more consistent trigger level from the piezo sensor. It just involves sticking a 22mm felt pad to each contact surface of the pickup and foam block (under the pedal).
I'm using two of the converted pedals and noticed one seemed a bit less responsive with similar pad settings in the Multi-12, and wondered if it was deteriorating from the continual thumping. But simply adding the felt pads has improved and balanced the trigger outputs from both pedals.
