I "toyed" with a double pedal for a long while back in the 1990's. I realized that in order to really be able to play it effectively and consistently, I'd have to dedicate much practice time to it. I simply didn't have enough time to devote to it.

Also, being relatively short and needing my hi-hat placed closed to me, I had the slave pedal extend to the left of the hi-hat stand, making it even more uncomfortable.

Ironically, I just sold that double pedal last year to someone who has put it to good use.

Lastly, since the 1990's, musically I've switched gears into a style that really doesn't use much of it so I really don't regret the decision.

Do what works best for you.
