Default Re: Right handed player, left footed pedal.

My kit is setup a bit differently though.. basically a left handed kit with a right bass drum and hi hat. It is open handed, ride is on the right. Toms roll down to the left thought I'm always fiddling with their placement.

When I'm using a single BD, I use a traditional right footed double bass pedal and have the BD on the right side. The left/slave pedal is the primary pedal. I use a BD->hi hat clamp (like this - it was a lot cheaper than getting a good lefty DB pedal) so I can keep pedals next to each other.
So your kit looks like the pic attached?
I really like this idea, didn't Utdrummer do this too?
