Default -roland kd9 vs yamaha kp 65-

hey everyone... i own a dtx550 kit and was considering changing the kick pad as it's not really good enough for double bass... was considering buying a second kp65 but then i found out about the roland kd9 pad. it costs way more but i was wondering how good it feels for double bass. now, i want an opinion from someone who has had some experience with it cuz i dont think simply trying it out at the store would be enough. so do u think its worth buying one of those, or is it better to have two separate 65s.

Hi. The new KD-9 pad is softer and much more quiter. But still it's kinda unstable if you double bass a lot.

I also have the same e-kit, the default kp65 is very loud, I sold it and made myself a meshpad (like the expensive Roland one) from an old tom, using a ddrum trigger. It feels great but the trigger doesn't seem to be "hot" enough. I'm working on this issue at the moment.

You can have 2 pads, if so then get the roland ones, they are quiter and have a softer feel.

As you can see here there are two hand-made kick pads


A pic from my friends studio (he helped me out with making the pad), don't have a camera at the moment to show mine.
