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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
