Re: Anybody switch from double to single?
My main reason for wanting to abandon the double pedal is that playing anything with it always seems ostentatious. They're not subtle in any way, and I feel that they're only appropriate in very heavy music. But then I put on the live Chick Corea record (Tokyo Blue Note w/ Patitucci on bass and Vinnie on drums) and I hear Vinnie playing a double pedal on an 18" bass drum, and I figure, what the hell? :)
