Default Why is it that...

Why is it that when both of my pedals are on the same spring tension the left pedal on my double bass pedal has to be hit harder? I'm lefty playing in righty also so it wouldn't be that my left foot is weaker, any suggestions?

It's physics. You're activating a beater that is separated by a rod as opposed to your primary which is directly connected to the beater cam. It doesn't matter what you do or what double pedal you have, there will be a small amount of play between the slave pedal and the beater and it will always lag behind how your primary pedal feels.

Try compensating by bringing up the tension on your right (main) beater just a tad. If you just started to use a double pedal, maybe your left leg is a bit weaker.

I'm gonna take it apart and clean it because it squeaks and I got it used from Guitar Center so I have no idea how this thing was treated, I know there is gonna be lag but I want to have both pedals have the same tension but the left pedal has to be pushed a lot harder than the right one and I'm lefty playing right so it's not that my left foot is weaker.

Was it squeaky before you bought it?

Yeah, I noticed it when I brought it home, took it apart and cleaned it out. No more squeaking.
