Absolutely, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Additionally, bass drums with a pedal on one side SHOULD have the front hoop off the floor to be completely level, since there's the lift of whatever part of the pedal is below the batter hoop on the batter side in play.

I really wish I had some reason to get Booty Shakers but unfortunately my Pearl S2000 snare stand does pretty much the same thing, and my floor tom legs already have Pearl suspension feet. But they're still a great, inexpensive fix for this classic issue.
