Practicing drums at home can feel like an uphill battle. You’ve got an electronic kit. You’re using headphones. But still there’s a problem: the sound of the kick pedal mechanism each time you depress it, and the audible thud of the beater as it strikes the kick pad. Roland’s new KT-9 Kick Trigger Pedal is the answer. Designed for ultra-quiet home practice, the KT-9 features a beaterless design and a patent-pending link mechanism, resulting in a dramatic reduction in noise when played, without compromising the pedal’s feel or the playability. With the KT-9 under your foot, you can go as hard as you like, as late as you want.
