Default Re: Rubber bass drum feet vs spikes

Strictly rubber feet for me. Like Bo I damaged a floor many years ago. I don't experience BD creep. I bring my own carpet to every gig (it also has tape markings for fast placement) and all of my pedals have Velcro. Nothing seems to move though I am not a heavy hitter.

Count me among those that use both. I always take my own rug, and I have the spurs adjusted so the spurs bite into the rug and the rubber prevents digging into the surface below.

I also use the spikes on the pedal and the hihat, adjusted the same way. They don't affect the angle of the pedal, Larry, because they only dig into the rug.

Rubber alone doesn't cut it for me. I have to have the spikes to prevent creep, which is why I started carrying my own rug. I didn't want to damage nice wood floors.

If I had only used rubber legs instead of spikes the rug under my drums when I was a teenager would be in a better state of disrepair.
It was a muslim prayer rug from the Ottoman empire.
Who knew?
I was a teenager.

Well you can probably kiss that nice afterlife goodbye. I'd do something to make everything nice with the Muslims again lol.

Maybe tune your drums so they have a nice atonement?

im doing my job well then :) i have one for every stand so i can mark up where everything sits (makes setting up a lot faster) and means my bass never moves an inch, everything is always in the same right place and no faffing about. One of the best things i ever got to make life easier :)

Yep-lol.
Indeed my drums do have a pleasant atonement and always will, but I'm guessing this rug is just a war relic from some caliphate dupe.

It's essentially a great solution, & certainly better than nothing on a smooth surface. I'd certainly carry one as a backup to my drum rug. I only see two negatives;

1/ It doesn't prevent lateral movement.
2/ If attached to part of the throne that isn't right at floor level, then under tension, it has the potential to lift the heel portion of the pedal plate.
