Default No drums while camping EH! NO NO !

I dont know if you noticed but last week I was away from you. I went camping with my whole family, even my dog took vacation. One week of pure rest but there's no way for me to stay away from sticks and from now on, PEDALS...

This is my custom build double pedal practice pad.

Hope it will bring out the woodworker in you :)

Fine work, now you just need a wooden hihat stand.

No, I don't tend to go places, unfortunately.

That reminds me of Chris Adler's practice setup that he takes with him everywhere he goes. How much did it cost to make that practice pad?

I don't know if this has already been covered and it is slightly off-topic but how many of you guys are adovocates of buying double pedals for sole use of practicing rudiments with the feet etc. but not for live playing? Great innovation by the way.

Count me in. Originally, I bought my double ICs for playing metal, but when I decided I wanted to move towards lighter jazz/funk type playing, I ditched the slave pedal and moved to a single. However, I do use the slave when I practice away from the kit. I think it helps build the muscles in the left calf muscle that general hi-hat use won't.

I like the practice setup. I've got something similar exploiting a couple pieces of my Roland kit for such purpose. I keep mine in the corner behind my acoustic kit.

Thank's, I may think of your hi-hat idea. There was a great acticle in MD about building wooden practice pad kit.

It cost me about 5 $ including the soft rubber puck, wood, glue, woodscrews and paint. It was already in hand.

I brought that setup solely to practice my feet and hand with rudiments. They are mostly singles, doubles, paradiddle (and inversion combo), triplet (shuffling triplet), and flams. My double pedal skills need to be developped like accenting a five strokes roll in combo with hands rudiment and sticks techniques.
