The Roland KT-9 Kick Trigger Pedal is a compact kick trigger pedal designed to be used with Roland Electronic drum kits and offers users with an accessory that lowers the noise impact of traditional kick pedal mechanisms and vibrations.
This is ideal for environments where noise restrictions and constraints are an issue limiting the freedom to practice.
Electronic drum kits are far quieter than acoustic kits, but there’s still an audible sound when you depress a standard kick pedal, and another when the beater hits the kick pad. If quiet practice sessions are a priority, the KT-9 is a must, with its beaterless design and newly developed link mechanism* giving a marked reduction in operational noise (85%** less in your practice space and 63%** less to rooms below, compared to the Roland KD-9 beater-equipped kick pedal). The KT-9 works even better alongside the low-noise mesh heads featured on Roland V-Drums, plus our NE-10 Noise Eater Isolation Boards and NE-1 Isolation Feet.
Whether you’re practicing at home or playing out, it’s important to have a kick pedal that picks up all the subtleties of your drumming style. The KT-9 is a great choice for expressive players. The unit’s feet ensure total stability, letting you work the pedal as hard or soft as you like (with the sound module picking up every nuance). With a familiar toe-stopper to set your foot position, the KT-9’s smooth pedal mechanism delivers authentic kick feel. It’s your ticket to an energetic drum practice – that won’t disturb the neighbors.
The main features of the Roland KT-9 Kick Trigger Pedal include:
- Low-noise operation for late-night practice (85% less noise in your practice space and 63% less to rooms below, compared to Roland KD-9 beater-equipped kick pedal)
- Compact design, easy setup and small footprint for home practice
