Re: Bass Drum Pedal Chains - oil/lubricant?
Since its been so long that you haven't lubed them, I'd soak them in WD-40 for a little while. Then after wiping them off a bit, put some sowing machine oil on them. It's cheap and works great. I use a belt drive pedal these days - much better in my opinion. But when I used chain drive pedals I went with sowing machine oil.
