Perfect kick for electronic drums

Have an electronic drums kit? Why would you need a kick drum? Really, why?
If you chose to have a silent drum kit (the main purpose of electronic drums), why would you want to have a kick drum, along with a kick pedal beater? They are the noisiest and the most vibrating part of the kit!

Trigger your kick without hitting it

Krigg™ (patent pending) is a noiseless, compact bass drum pedal trigger for electronic drums built on the PedalMount™ construction (patent pending), which enables you to trigger the kick without hitting it. Works with Roland (v-drums), Yamaha, Alesis, 2box, Megadrum and all other electronic drum modules (even with Rock Band).

What Users Say About Krigg

 

(review found on v-drums forum) - 19 Sep 2013

Sold the kd85 and bought the krigg, nearly £100 profit too.
It is just right.
It feels like I always hoped it would.
It feels perfect.
It just feels right. I don't really know what else to say.
I love it.
I wonder what is the preferred kick pedal with krigg users.
I have a dw9000, which is lovely, however that chain hits the trigger which is not ideal but, like somebody else mentioned, I put a chair leg protector pad thingy on the krigg. Works great.
Thanks triggera.
Who knew something so small could make me this happy.
Removing the beater is quite liberating actually.

Thank you for everything!! This product is GREAT!!!
Build quality:
This thing is build like a rock. A simplified design, but very handy! I use a Pearl pedal, and it won't fit at the first time. What I did I used a little piece of foamrubber. And now it fits perfectly.
Playability:
Setup is very easy, and plays great. The trigger is really sensiitve and very responsive to my TD4 soundmodule!
Value for money:
Definitly a great choice!! I have a wooden floor and I didn't feel vibrations while testing it.
Triggera:
Triggera is a great company they'll provide the best service! There were some delivery problems, it was send back to the postoffice. The cause: My housenumbers wasn't available on the package. Triggera did everything to trace my package and had contact with the postoffice and the airport. I was very pleased and very happy with this service and good care of triggera. At the end they'll send me a new one with the correct adress information. It was allready arrived in 3 a 4 days. (I wasn't at home so I had to wait till the next day). Now I have it and I'm really happy with it. Also the package is very well packed!

Great job you guys, I'm really happy with both the performance/accuracy of the trigger and the decrease in acoustic noise and vibration generated when playing. Also wonder whether helps improving foot technique since there's no energy coming from the heather thus it's all 100% foot driven.

I learnt from your product because was looking for vibration & acoustic isolation for my e-drum kit, did put mesh heads all over the pads but the bass drum was still a problem. Was about to buy material to build the so called 'tennis ball drum riser' and krigg is a more efficient solution and no doubt much less work & money required. You may want to make your website/krigg product coming up in web search tools for drum isolation, tennis ball drum riser, etc ... Saw a lot of interest out there in building double layer platforms to isolate vibration for apartment drummers.

Anyway, best of luck and keep up with this outstanding work. Will keep an eye on any new product releases.

The good news is it works perfectly, dynamic range sensitivity is great, it clamps on just like any normal bass drum pickup.

It is hands down the quietest pickup I have ever played. The magic seems to be in the rubber stop they use, it transmits almost no impact noise downwards, better than anything else I have tried. So that means it is likely to make virtually any pedal super quiet.

It is significantly quieter than the HD-3's already quiet pedal, and is a lot quieter than the FD-7 HH pedal too, which is slightly louder than the HD-3's.

So my take on the Krigg is it is about as close to perfect as it can be. The out of the box experience is funny though, they just throw it into a tiny box, no packaging or manual, nothing but an invoice. Since that contributes to it being less expensive, no complaints from me.

 

 

(email from a customer) - 21 Jan 2013

It has arrived. In one word it is awesome.

When I took it out from the box I asked: This is it? Bahh. So I prepared myself that it won't be the same experience but I hoped at least it will be quiet.

After I installed it to my kit I could tell the difference. I mean only if I had to. If my eyes were blinded and I had to tell which one I'm using then I could tell the difference. But it doesn't matter at all. After 3 minutes I just forget it and is completely the same. NEVER noticed while playing that it is a pedal without real kick. The same feeling. It has good enough dynamic range for me and now it is the most quiet part of the kit. It was the loudest...

It is so straightforward that if you have an e-drum than you don't need a bass drum - just the pedal. Why don't big e-drum companies realize that - I don't know. I'm glad U guys did and I'm glad I found U. :)

Awesome product. And quite good priced. U could sell it for more IMHO. I would have bought it for double the price. ;)

I don't know about kd9, but I can tell you, that I really like krigg. I tried a lot of kick pads in the past. From kd 7, ddrum4, yamaha dtxtreme3, jobeky 18bass drum etc and I would buy krigg again. I got the perfect feel with it. I'm also a drummer who gigs quite often and now I can put all my gear in the back trunk. Yes, I also play concerts with it, without any bas drum in front of me :-)... I couldn't care less about the look anymore. And when you mentioned the discount, krigg is already much cheaper than kd 9;-)

It attaches to your bass drum pedal via the usual manner, just like any other bass drum trigger or bass drum. The good thing is, you can remove your beater from your pedal because it's not needed. This means that there is no impact of a beater striking another surface.

Acoustic noise

I personally have found the KD8 I have to be the noisiest part of my kit. I know that other bass triggers are quieter such as the KD9 and some of the mesh head triggers but they still have the thumping of the beater against the playing surface. I have found that its my bass trigger that creates a lot of noise that travels through the floor of my house. Yes, there is still a little bit of noise as the bottom of the pedal strikes against the rubber pad but it is significantly quieter than any bass drum or trigger that I've played on and it doesn't send a deep thumping through the floor. This trigger is a must for anyone playing in an apartment, who doesn't want to wake up children sleeping downstairs or who doesn't want to annoy their other half!

Triggering

It triggers excellently! I didnt really have to tinker too much at all with my modules settings but I still had a play. Your playing style will affect your settings though and how heavy your foot is. It registers soft and gentle hits consistently well with a full range of intermediate hits building up to your loudest with no mishits. A superb little trigger!

Feel

Ok, so you are not actually using a beater to hit a drum head of some sort. It does feel a little different playing it. Ive been playing drums for about 23 yrs on and off and Ive always used a pedal and beater for my bass drums. Before I even tried out the Krigg, I prepared myself mentally for it to feel completely different. However, when I hooked it up to my module and played, it only took about 20mins to be totally comfortable with it. It was very easy to adapt to and I began to actually like playing it! Playing fast beats was no problem at all, in fact it was easier than using normal bass drum beater and head approach. Im currently developing my heel-toe technique and this pedal helped to make working on this easier. A piece of hardware that helps the development of skills, technique and ability has to be commended. Well done triggera!

Verdict

Well...Im selling my KD8 and will definitely buy another Krigg when I master my double pedal technique!

A simple but great product that is much quieter than most other bass triggers, saves space and feels good!

I just got my krigg so I can now verify and agree with the other posters.

It is much quieter than the original kick tower. I had been using a Yamaha KP65 kick tower with a Yamaha DTX-700 module prior to receiving the Krigg.

Changing to the Krigg, the sound output level was lower/quieter but easy to adjust. I tried playing with and without the redundant beater and it felt better without it, although is was quite funny to see the beater seemingly hitting an invisible object and producing a bass drum sound. No problems with triggering. I tried playing on my Krigg with sticks and it kept up with a closed drum roll without dropping any notes.

As for ambient noise, I chose a new Tama Speed Cobra pedal, just because it felt faster to me than several others in the store. There is some noise, possibly from the chain drive, but the overall sound level from the krigg plus pedal is quieter than my Yamaha rubber cymbals when hit with 7A all wooden stocks, and quieter than my TP65 rubber toms, but noisier than my XP200SD silicone snare pad. (That silicone is an exceptionally quiet playing surface). There is a very small amount of vibration detectable in the floor but it is negligible compared to when I was slapping the kick tower with the beater. The tip of the toe of the Tama's footplate does not reach the center of the Krigg, but it triggers fine at the edge. I have placed a felt chair-leg pad on the krigg to stop the pedal's chain anchor from wearing away at the rubber pad. This felt has no effect on the triggering.

Overall it is a great way to drastically reduce the thudding on the floor when playing electronic drums at home, and the Krigg highlights how silly some electronic drums are becoming as they are evolving to mimic the size and appearance of acoustics for no practical reason other than flashy appearance.

I recently bought a Krigg - and it is pretty damn nice. Its VERY quiet - waayyy quieter than anything else I have heard and night and day compared to my old KP-65. It really doesn't take that much getting used to.
Its feels a little odd at first not having the 'weight' of the beater, but tweaking spring tension pretty much resolved that for me. Can still heel-toe double strokes on the Krigg after a little settings-fiddling.
The only down-side was I ended up changing pedal, as my original pedal had no base-plate (just two metal bars) and this made it a little unstable when using the Krigg. Now running a Mapex Raptor and it is amazing..

 

 

 

(review found on v-drums forum) - 5 Jul 2012

I totally agree with your opinion. It's a great product. I have used my two kriggs for about two months now and I could't ask for more. Especially for that price. It really is very silent. I even changed my direct drive pedals to strap drive and now the kick is clearly the most silent part of my kit. In addition, "AtoE kick drum conversion" with it is super easy.

 

 

 

(review found on v-drums forum) - 24 Oct 2012

I was waking up the wife at night with my Roland kick. Then a gentlemen here referred me to the Krigg, so I ordered one. In short, my wife doesn't wake up anymore. It's that quiet; just a slight click when the bottom of the pedal hits the pad.

It does take a bit of getting used to, but now I like it just as much, if not more than using a beater. I feel like I actually have more control and my heel-toe technique is much improved. I'm not an expert on physics by any stretch, but my thinking is that by removing the beater, you're tightening and speeding the whole process up. It just takes some getting used to.

In my humble opinion, I'm starting to get the feeling that the Krigg and it's method has rendered using a beater with electronic drums obsolete. As with anything, experience is subjective. YMMV.

Also, great customer service! I had a bad internet connection, made a mistake and accidentally paid twice when ordering. They contacted me right away to ASK if I meant to do that and promptly refunded my overpayment when I told them it was my mistake. They shipped it that day and it was delivered from Europe 10 days later.

If you're keeping family or neighbors awake with the whacketa whack of your beater, I highly recommend trying the Krigg. Even if you aren't disturbing anyone and are curious, check it out! $70.00 is a fantastic price. Even if it winds up not being your thing, you shouldn't have any problem flipping it here.

 

 

 

(review found on 2box forum) - 26 Mar 2013

Just thought I'd share my experience with a new piece of gear. I triggered up an acoustic kit and was having difficulty getting the kick to trigger properly (plus it was pretty loud), so I started looking for alternatives. I came across a few, the cheapest of which was the Triggera Krigg, so I decided to give it a shot. Glad I did! It feels a bit different, but with a bit of adjusting of the tension springs on my pedal it feels pretty good. Triggers WAY better than my mesh head 22" kick. The only downside is that, if you want a double kick, you need to either find a way to attach it to your second pedal or use two single pedals. Once I figure out a good way to attach it to my second pedal, I'll be ordering another one!

I spent about an hour smacking away on my brand new Triggera Kriggs & Yamaha DD-65 routed into Toontracks Superior Drummer 2.
The feel of the Kriggs are perfect & easily the most quiet solution to the real thing. I am totally satisfied! Now I just need a Mono to Mono Y-cable so I can do Double kicks & I'm golden!
Awesome work guys! Now all you need to do is advertise a bit better, I stumbled on to the Krigg by accident on a forum while looking for a good replacement for the crappy kick that comes with the Yamaha
As satisfied as one can be!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 13 May 2013

Must tell, that I'm completely satisfied with your product. I'm playing drums over 20 years and after just 1min, I'm totally comfortable kicking without beater. It really feels natural. I have pearl eliminator pedal.
I will definitely do the protection with felt. I will try to make it softer, I think. Maybe I'm talking about softer impact, if you understand me. Even now it's the quietest e-kick that I have played and I played on lots of them (ddrum4, yamaha dtx treeme3, roland kd7, 18"drum-tec design, 18"ddt, 2box kick pad).
I read about speed increase with kriggs and i can confirm that.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 22 Jan 2014

I tried it for a couple of hours and I could not stop playing :) I must say that is really great, first of all because it is very silently! I asked my neighbors who have not heard the annoying beat the previous pedal I was using. My doubt was about the rebound of the pedal, but I have to say that it is very similar to the rebound of a real drum. I set the spring on the pedal so that it is harder and I have a really good feeling.

I will definitely recommend your product to my friends drummers and I plan to buy another soon to train with the double pedal.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 25 May 2013

I got the krigg a few days ago. I tested it out yesterday with a chain-driven bass drum pedal and two modules: the medeli dd506 and the roland td9. I have yet to test it with a full kit, the roland td12, and a direct drive pedal, but so far so good.
At low dynamic levels its response is pretty good when connected to the td9 but not so much with the dd506, even with the sensitivity settings at their highest. This is obviously because of the module, which is a cheaper one. As for acoustic noise, when played within a jazz context it's pretty much 100% silent. With heel-up playing there's an increase in volume of course, but it's WAY more silent than the KD9, the dd506 kick trigger, and the DW Steve Smith backstage bass drum practice pad I have.
So basically, at this point, the krigg is probably one of the best - if not the best - thing to be invented since the birth of the e-drum set in the '80s. Why? Well, because unlike the kick trigger on about 95% of the kits, it seems to be quiet enough to let you practice on an apartment without bothering everyone around you.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 18 Jan 2014

I got my Krigg this week (Fast delivery).
It was lika plug and play in my module (Roland TD-30) I connected it and in the menu dialed in a KD-120. I believe it will take a little time getting use to play with the krigg instead of one more bassdrum but it triggers really well. As you mentioned in your webpage there is a bit better feeling when adding a furniture felt on the rubber, so as for that I will keep my felt on the krigg. The only minor thing on the krigg is that I think it would have clamped better on my pedal if the metal that connects the krigg to the pedal would have been about 2mm longer (I think it would clamp harder to the pedal), but thats as I said a really minor thing. Over all Im really impressed with the Krigg and I will really tell all my drumming friends about It. Lets see if I ever get the time to try out one of your other triggers in the future.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 12 Jun 2013

That is it! The "Thump" noise is gone at last :)
Quiet and VERY sensitive out of a box, simple, reliable and what is also important for me - the same feeling like playing with a beater, maybe just a bit easier. So thank you!
China will be my next purchase for sure.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 3 Aug 2013

Only today I got to try the Krigg, I was on a couple of business trip then on holiday. Well, it was worth the wait, it's great! It fits my Gibraltar pedal very well and it's very quiet. My only concern is the endurance of the rubber on the piezo element in the long run, I am quite hard kicker (Triggera: "Adding a piece of felt there will keep you safe"). But it is cheap enough to order another one, I guess, if I ever need to. Thanks for a great product!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 18 Jun 2013

I already have one krigg that I bought from you a couple of months ago for my practice kit. However I love it so much that I'm now getting these extra 2 for my other kits and will be selling my Roland KD120. The response and feel is great and it's so much smaller, quieter and easier to transport than the kd120.
Congratulations on a great product.
I'll have to try out your cymbals next!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 12 Mar 2013

I live in a small apartment so I'm always looking for silent drumming options. Plus I'm a real double bass freak so fast and Heavy double kicking tends to make some noise. I've been thinking that a Product like this must surely exist and so I found you guys. Been using meshpads but they still make some thumping noise. Also the Roland kd7 which for what they do are to Heavy and bulky. Really liking the krigg, and with some fixing I can probably make them even quieter. I love playing late at night.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 12 Jun 2013

I received the trigger and installed it. That's great! In fact, the noise of the pedal is completely removed. And when playing on speakers and not headphones, I finally hear the actual amplified sound of the kick and not just the pedal.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 17 Jan 2014

The krigg arrived today, I'm very impressed! It feels very comfortable and has a great sensitivity setting for the attack. I will be ordering another when I get a double pedal.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 13 Jan 2014

Just wanted to let you know, I've received the trigger and it works like a charm. Finally I'm able to use my vdrums without giving my elderly neighbours flashbacks to the war. Thanks again!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 29 Apr 2013

I received them a few days ago but didn't have time to try them out until yesterday. I'm extremely satisfied with the Krigg!
I live in an apartment and I used to get complaints all the time about the vibrations from the kick pedal. Now, it's practically silent and it feels pretty close to the real thing.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 19 Jun 2012

Got my Kriggs today. They work super. Adjusted the sensitivity to 25 so I don't have to hit it hard. Problem solved, hope you will sell a lot more of these things.
Thank you for this nice thing, I am also a lot faster now because I am not afraid to make noise!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 7 Nov 2013

I've been using krigg for a while now and I'm very happy with it. Works really well, especially after pad sensitivity calibration and is much more quiet than the real beater.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 22 Apr 2013

They're triggering very nice and also very silent. Before I was using a Roland KD-120, but with that I often had double trigger problems and was too loud, no matter how the module was set up. So, all in all I'm very satisfied with my new setup!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 10 Oct 2012

It works really well! The only part of my kit that was disturbing my sleeping wife was the Roland kick pad. The Krigg turned the loudest part of my kit into the quietest. I played pretty heavily for half an hour last night and she didn't hear a thing.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 13 Nov 2013

Been playing with the Kriggs a little bit now, and they trigger very good! The feeling is much better than I expected. I put a little piece of furniture felt pads on (under) the pedals and it made the feeling almost perfect, and they became even quieter.

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 15 Dec 2013

This is an awesome product! I live on the second floor of my apartment complex and I've recently been getting complaints from my neighbor below me. But, this kick trigger is incredibly silent! I shouldn't be getting anymore complaints. It also feels so much more responsive than my old Yamaha rubber trigger. I will put in a second order soon for the double pedal. Thanks so much!

 

 

 

(email from a customer) - 29 Oct 2012

I received the krigg and i absolutely love it! And so do my downstairs neighbors.

Manual

3 easy steps to mount your krigg

  1. Position the krigg in your pedal, while making sure the pedal's footplate can hit the krigg.
  2. Clamp the krigg in the pedal.
  3. Connect it to the module.

That's it. You got a new bass drum! Super-quiet and compact!

You can adjust the height of the krigg's trigger box by releasing the wing nut and then tighening it at the wanted height.

Note: To further reduce the noise (and even improve the feel) you can place a piece of furniture felt on the krigg's rubber (where it gets kicked by the pedal's footplate).
