Hey T-bone! Tommy is using a double pedal on the 26 kick for the Motley tour. It's SOOOOO much easier(and consistent) for myself and the audio engineers to only have one kick to mic, tune, etc. I don't think it's any different than 2 kicks w/pedals; the 32" kick was going to be used, but no remote pedal could be designed to accommodate Tommy's setup.
As far as new work- I'm currently in the studio with Tommy and Supernova(engineering); we're doing a thing in Vegas this week, and I tech all of T's DJ gigs as well. So pretty much just full time with Tommy for the rest of the year. Hope that helps! Late!
