Default Connected Pedals

Has someone come up with something this yet?

A high-hat stand connected to a double pedal? The two left pedals would be on one base, so they would always be together, in the same position.

I can think of a couple good reasons for this type of design, but I haven't seen it anywhere.

Has anyone seen such a critter before?

Right now I have them zip tied together and it works pretty well keeping them both stationary and together.

Never tried one but I have seen this on the DW website before;

http://drumheadauthority.com/product...-double-pedal/

It must be solid. Would love to try one. Allows for unique positions as well

Thst DW piece is excellent but if you look for “dog bones” on other sites you will find other pieces that will work as well,

Default Expensive!!!

I think I'm gonna fabricate a base to attach them to.

Why "other sites?" Is there no dog bone discussion here?

At one point Mapex tried a straight up HH-slave combo called Janus. It wasn't very popular, and it's discontinued. As opposed to the DW gizmo you have there with two separate pedals, the left pedal was intended to control the HH and be the slave BD pedal, with a shifter to switch between the two. I suspect it was exactly as awesome as that sounds, but if anyone owned one, chime right in.

I used to own a Mapex Janus HH/BD combo. The idea was great, but the design wasn't good enough. The left pedal was slow and unresponsive when used as the slave bd-pedal, and adjustments were limited and the initial settings aquard. I think they've should have tweaked the details a little and gotten things right, then it could have been great piece of gear.
