Default Unusual double-pedal.

Yesterday, I've constructed special double-pedal mechanism. I am using this for additional
24" bass drum placed on the right side of my set.

How does it feel to play a bass drum with that contraption?

That is truly ingenious; I second Wavelength; how does it feel to play?

Wow, this is very cool. I would think a cable would reduce the sensitivity, but not necessarily. I want to hear more about this.

I am adding it to my index of hardware mods at http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23501

So, I think I understand the basics of how it works, or at least how you use it...... but I would appreciate some close up pictures of the cable attached to the other piece to see how you did it. Nice job!!

That's how it looks to me also. The issue would be friction. A standard pedal has very little friction and surface areas that rub. A cable has lots more potential for friction, even if it is very straight and very well lubricated. The advantage would be much more flexible placement.

What is there to get? It's a remote double pedal.

Ever seen Stanton Moore's setup where he has a 26" marching kick off to the right of his kit? He uses a stadard double pedal on that, but using his right foot on the left-side slave pedal. This contraption allows for the same thing to be done, but so you can effectively use the both beaters on the double rather than just using it as a remote single pedal.
Get it?

If I remember correctly, Bobrovsky's kit is too big to fit on a picture... ;) I like that system though! But also wonder about friction.

Thank you for the comments!
Wavelength's figure is completely right!

Here you can see more close view of beaters side.

A lot pictures of my drumset (as well as some sound tracks) you can find at:

It doesn't look very secure..

Does it shift around alot when you play?
Maybe increase the weight or find something to fasten it to.

I did not find any shift of all pedals during playing.
The problem is, of course, different feeling between two pedals, but in most cases I am using them only separately.
(I will try to make pictures how they placed in drum-kit.)

Paralleling DMC's comment... can you feel any friction with the cable? I bet there really is quite the different feeling between the pedals, but like you said... your mostly using them separately. That cable looks a little thin too... but I'm sure you know exactly what your doing.

Great job.

In other words, you need to get up into outer space to be able to capture the whole thing on one picture ;)

Yes, of course, I feel a lot of difference, but nevertheless I can play slow sixteens. Perhaps, in future I will change Maxtone cable to more convenient.

And, finally, I've changed Maxtone to DW. Now it works very smooth and easy!

I believe you're having lots of fun doing this.
Keep up the good work! And, yes, I think you probably are spending lots of money on this, but hey, it's only money and you can't take it with you when you leave the planet - so - you might as well enjoy the hell out of it if you can!

Cheers,

Kona.

Nice idea!!
Seing this got my mind running, heres what I came up with. You could use this same time of mod to create a cabled slave pedal. I hope I don't make this too hard to follow....

From a Double Pedal setup take the "rotating arm" that links the two pedals together off.
Attach the cable to the left beater, anchoring it where you would normally anchor the spring. Then run the cable out to the slave pedal, giving you the ability to place the slave pedal whereever you wanted.

I'm writing that down, what a great saying. Back to the pedal, nice job, I looked at your kit a while ago, and it looks like it fit your set up well.
