Default How do I convert a single pedal to a double?

Hi guys.

Just wondering if it's possible to convert a single pedal to a double pedal just by purchasing the left pedal with a connecting rod? Or would I need to order a specific pedal?

I have an Iron Cobra and I've been looking around it and I'm not sure if I'll be able to turn it to a double.

Thanks

You are missing many key parts. Its much easier to get a double pedal.

Highly unlikely because double pedals tend to have an extra fitting on the side of the camshaft to accommodate the shaft for the slave pedal. Single pedals don't have this.

Some pedals can be converted, like the Pearl P2000; Pearl sells a conversion kit which uses the old single pedal as the slave pedal. And I believe Axis has a kit to bolt a pair of their pedals together.

Iron Cobras don't have such an option as as far as I know, so your only option is to buy a double and sell your single.

Easy to convert a single to a double.

1. Take your single pedal to a music store and trade/sell it for a double pedal.

2. When you need a single pedal, take off the slave side.

See how easy that was.

Yes, Axis has, indeed, a conversion kit. The thing i`ve noticed at it is that it has a special mechanism that is different from most brands` double pedals. Most of them have the entire mechanism (springs, rod-to-beater-transmission) on the right pedal. On the Axis ones, you basically have the same two pedals, a connecting rod with a spring holder and a metal piece that holds the beater. No right pedal modifications needed or whatever.It`s as the left pedal only has a extension of the beater and works sepparately. Seems like a simple and easy system to me... I think you could do the same thing for other pedals, too, but i`m not sure if it`s worth making custom parts for it.
