Default Re: Derek Roddy here!

Derek, Just wanted to say thank for a setup tip you threw out in a thread a few months ago. Since you recomended it I have tried setting up my single bass kit (single pedal) as a double pedal kit with the hi hat taking the place of the second bass drum.

I have noticed that is has worked wonderfully, especially when I have to twist to my right to reach my floor tom. I used to have slight back pain when playing for extended sets but I have noticed that's all but gone now. The only drawback is that my bass drum doesn't sit parallel with the front of the stage but now I can face the audience and the band directly so I'd really chalk it up as a win.

Thanks Derek.
Classy grip all day.
