Default Re: Anybody switch from double to single?

Yes, played double pedal starting when I was 15, at about 26 I went to single kick. In the past 2 years I've gone back to double. My thought is this- if you can't get by with a single foot, then you've gotta learn to before you can truly advance. There's just so much that one kick foot can do. The only reason that I'm using the double is that in trios, I find that if I bridge my hihat technique with the double pedal, it fattens up the sonic space a bit more. Mind you, it's gotta groove first.
