What that guy was doing in the video was really hard. If he has that kind of development in his lower leg (It's not just the shin BTW, the gastroc and the soleus muscles of the calf depress the pedals and the tibialis anterior of the shin raises the foot ) then he must be capable of some pretty mean "standard" double bass.
I think it's funny that when someone demonstrates something that nobody here can do, people look for ways to minimize it. Just admit that the guy is pretty bad-ass at something you can't do because we all know it's true anyway.
Okay well if that's true then what are they for? And i do think it is actually easier to play an electronic kit then an acoustic one, I'm not trying to "minimize" his ability in anyway i'm just saying what i think is true. And yes i know i probably couldn't do that but i'm sure there are SOME people here on DW who can.
