Re: Anybody switch from double to single?
I switched for various reasons and I'm glad I did. I could never master switching between a groove that required opening and closing your hihat back to a double bass thing. That combined with having a double pedal made it to easy for me to cheat on doubles and triples. My favorite drummer plays single so amazingly that I knew to have a shot at playing like him I'd have to ditch the double and buckle down on my single technique. I play recreationally so I don't need to play double bass although I do hear some killer double bass songs that make me want to go back sometimes. Overall I feel like I'm a better drummer w/o the double, no regrets here other than trying to find that elusive perfect single pedal.
