I told them that I wanted a double bass pedal (my first one) and I was gonna pay, and they said it's gonna be too loud. I told them it's not gonna get any LOUDER since I'm hitting the same thing, only MORE. They still say no. I told them I'm not gonna play drums at all if they are around. They still said it's gonna be a noise to our neighbours. Practically they think if I don't use a double bass pedal at school, it's useless (and we don't use it at school). Any help would be appreciated.
