Default Sleishman Double Pedal

I really want to buy one of their double pedals. I love the way it's setup like two actual bass drums. I haven't had the chance to play one yet.

Does anybody here play this pedal? When using a 2 legged hi hat stand are you able to get the hi hat pedal close to the left bass drum pedal? I notice that the pedals on the Sleishman double pedal are somewhat elevated. Does this cause a problem when going between the hi hat pedal and the left pedal on the Sleishman with the foot?

I have a Sleishman. However, I have never found a two-legged hi-hat stand I'd splash the cash on. I do have a Yamaha cable remote hi-hat, a Tama legless hi-hat, and a Yamaha traditional 3 legged hi-hat ... and all those work "very well" with the Sleishman.

harry, how far is the leg spread on this double pedal? Can you adjust that like on any other double pedal?

The pedal, because of it's design, is not as adjustable as most other double pedals that use the "slave pedal with drive shaft" system. But the stance is shorter than most. Normally, I'd just measure my Sleishman's and get you that info (I have posted it before, on this site, as well as the distance on my Off-Set pedals) but I'm 10 days out of surgery after getting my right hip totally replaced, so running up the stairs to my drum room to measure my pedals ... not gonna happen.
Since the footboards sit outboard a standard kick drum, to the left and right ... I would figure about 22" ... you do, after all, have to put a snare stand between the footboards. Well, you don't "have to", but most people would.
