Default Reverse Bass Pedal

i just noticed that when i play air drums i play bass with my heel (and always have).

is there such a thing as a Reverse Bass Pedal ?

one that is played with the heel of the pedal rather than the front ?

i'm not sure how such a pedal would be constructed, but nothing's impossible, right ?

Its existed for years actually, the SMART PEDAL
is heel activated.

Your toe stays planted as the balance point, makes a lot of sense.

Don't really think this ever became a reality.

You can see its weakness'... would probably snap in half right at the fulcrum

yes, that would be the obvious point of weakness...but surely it's do-able. either a super strong footboard or an easily replaceable one. it doesn't seem hard to do at all.

in fact a lot of these foot pedals seem like really convoluted designs. i would think that <ahem> less is more </ahem> regarding all of the movable parts on a foot pedal.

is there really a need for all of the straps and chains and la de da ? wouldn't a spring underneath the footboard do the trick ?

Read the patent description, that pedal is connected with a strap, tho 21st century materials could be used, i don't see this design as playable in a practical sense. Plus you'd have to build it yourself.
