I play an electric kit as well (Yamaha DTX950K). I am useing the DW2000 now and am not having a issue, I would like to hear more about the issue you are having, is it because the pedal is made for a curved bass hoop?
Also, can anyone be kind enough to tell me how to load an image? can I not load an image straight from my computer?

I can tell straight away that I'm going to get on better with these pedals than my old ones, they are a lot more powerful and sensitive.
To post a pic you need to open an account with PHOTOBUCKET . Once your account is activated you can upload from your computer to PB. In there you can create photo albums. Once you have uploaded a pic to an album, look for the pic you want to post on the forum, hover your mouse over the pic and a drop down menu will appear, you need to pick the one with [IMG][IMG/] tags and left click it, then go to your post on the forum and paste it.
I always resize my pics to 800x600 before I upload to PB with a free program called Irfanview, it's really simple to use and it's free.

Success, thank you Melteddrummer...As I was typing your name I realized I had mentally been reading it wrong this whole time. Until now I thought it was Metaldrummer.
Glad I could help. Yeah it's Melteddrummer. The first band I was in was called 'Melted Dog'. that's where it came from lol.

Is that a mesh head on the yamaha kick? or is it the new latex like the rest of the kit?
It isnt Mesh or Silicon, It is more of a thick fabric type material. I wish they had made it silicon, would have cut down on the "stick" noise. All-in-all though I am very happy with the kit. I suspect I am only using a fraction of its potential though. When I got it, Yamaha hadn't put the 500 or the 700 series on the market yet, so I got what they had to offer.
The sucky thing about it is, its a really nice setup and it took away all my excuses. Now when I sound bad I can't blame it on anyone or anything but me. Although I was able to convienced my wife that the only thing standing between me and "Awesome" is some new pedals.
