Hi, I currently own a cheap pedal with a felt beater. Because I'm trying to reduce the noise and especially the vibrations caused by the kick drum (KP65), I'm looking into more silent options to replace the beater. Would anyone be willing to share experience and advice? Thanks a lot.

To reduce noise i've purchased Roland Noise Eater carpet (NE-10 Noise Eater), but not the big one - just the same size as our Yamaha pedal. It works.. at least as a first step.

I've been using the KU100 pedal for a few months. I guess it's as quiet as anything hitting another thing can physically be (actually, the spring inside it is making a little metallic noise that bothers me more than the oomph itself). It does create quite a bit of vibration on the floor (again, it's something hitting another thing into the floor...) which I feared would be a problem, but so far I've had no complaints from the neighbours downstairs. I do have two layers of carpet under my kit and rarely play after 8PM, so that may be why :)

I got directions to make a platform from the dtxperance website years ago using tennis balls that TomTom mentioned , but that web site is so messed up you might not be able to find it. It works well , but a soft thump can be heard from below. I got a KAT silent strike bass drum beater (KT-TBB) and that reduces the thump more.

Good Luck!
