Default Re: Double bass-speed - struggling, pain

Maybe its also a good idea to devide the practice sessions into blocks of 30 or 40 minutes and then walk around for a few min (get a drink, wc, etc :P) and continue. Instead of 2-3 hours straight.

For the pedal.
On most pedals the linked part (so your left pedal) usually has a bit less response then the one that's direct on the bassdrum. One way to keep this to a minimum in to keep the bearings of the axis in between the pedals clean and lube them with something like WD40.
Sometimes a slightly higher springtension on the left beater might also work to get the same response out of both pedals. Best is to experiment around and see what works for you!

Good luck!
