Best floor type for kick drum
« on: April 30, 2021, 11:27:20 AM »
Hi, I have the Alesis strike kit with the smaller kick drum. It is currently set up in a bedroom on carpet and I am having re-trigger problems due to the amount of "bounce" in the carpet.
I am just tempted to fasten it to the hard floor under the carpet but would really appreciate any other solutions you guys might be able to offer :-)
Thanks

I have the same Strike kit. I have it set up on some interlocking foam pads, underneath a slab of carpet. Pretty stable on the kick, plus eats up any crosstalk in general.
