I think they actually feel pretty good, I tried them out at the store a while back. Seem to be nice for time spent in front of the computer for a while.

They can also be used to hit cowbells and such or trigger electronics, though I'm not sure if you need to buy the striker/beater separately.

BTW, since I forget, what electric kit do you have again? Rolands?

It's a customised Yamaha kit, 4 toms, 3 cymbals (although need a new trigger brain to use more than 2), hi-hat, double bass pedal and the snare off a DTXtreme.

If those practice pedals could trigger the trigger brain that would be awesome, do you have a link?

They're called Hansen Futz practice pedals, and you can find a link to a good review on them (by a fellow from the UK) here.

Be aware it doesn't feel like a real pedal, but it is good for quiet practice and can be used to trigger electronics (as stated earlier) if you buy a trigger and connect it to a drum module or something else.

Not sure on good music stores in the U.K., but here's a link to an American e=tailer that I use a lot for reference.

Also, the kit I bought was a Yamaha too! DTX 540k, with the DTX Textured Silicone "drum" heads. Loving it so far.

Although good whiskey is the nectar of the gods, the rest of your post is rubbish

i don't think there's anay ABS that's not "slick" as you say.
The cheapest texture caps i think would be Massdrops PBTs.

Cheap ABS doubleshots that are "slick" would be the Tai Hao GB ones that are like $20.00 a set.

Well the ABS Tao Hao I got in this group buy were textured:

I love how alcohol has gotten mixed in with the keyboards here...the only time this would be a good thing!

I just wanted to pop in here and give you all an update on my troubles with Ducky (and the keyboard that has been gone to RMA for 5 months). Yesterday I emailed Ducky corporate, explained the situation and that I had not been able to get a response from the tech, etc...This morning I woke up to an email explaining that they are in the process of replacing their North American tech and they were told he didn't have any more keyboards for repair, so obviously something has happened to mine and they would be happy to replace it. They asked for the switch type and LED color and said they would let me know if they still had an exact one to send me, if not they will work with me to correct the issue. I emailed them this morning, but of course, they are in Taiwan, so I probably won't here back until tomorrow, but this at least gives me a bit of hope!




Also, on the topic of mechanicals at work, I ended up purchasing a QF Pro with MX browns for work. I work in an insurance office, so noise would be a concern, so I did put o-rings on it before I brought it in, but now it has become my favorite keyboard. I have a Ducky Shine Zero at home (a replacement I bought for my Ducky Shine II while it was sent for RMA) which is MX blues. I love the blues at home, but for work I couldn't get away with it. I've never tried any other switches, so I can't comment on them, but I love both the MX Browns and MX Blues, just depends on the situation.

Yeah, the computer industry is filled with RMA nightmares. I had a motherboard go out that took a few months to resolve.

i'll have some fun pics when I get home today, paint on one of my QFR cases should be dried and ready for final sanding, and i'll have my black QFR and ready to thow my new caps on it, ( after I lube it up )

its always fun when you get a new toy to pop the 'warranty void if removed' sticker off things before you even play with it.
