Re: Anybody switch from double to single?
I own a 5 string bass and feel the same way about the B string that you feel about the slave pedal but when there was finally a song my band played that could use the low string, it was worth all the trouble of dealing with a bigger neck/fretboard.
The slave pedal can be fit into just about any genre. When you don't need to use it, don't. When it can be worked in to improve a song, work it in. That's the beauty of playing percussion... limitless opportunity to use different tools and sounds to your advantage.
Just my $.02.
