New to double pedals...keeping the slave pedal in-place.


Senior Member
Hey guys, I just last Friday got my first set of double pedals after playing a single for 20 years. I got a secondhand set of Yamahas and they feel really good and have the features I wanted. Where I’m struggling is with movement on the slave (left side, I’m right-handed) pedal. I have the two spikes on the floorplate out as far as they’ll go and the pedal has the hook side of Velcro stuck to the bottom of it as well, but it still slides a lot when I try to play it. Part of it may be the carpet in my house as it is a little on the thicker side. What, if anything am I doing wrong and how do I get the pedal to stay put? Below is a pic of my pedals for reference. Thanks for the help!
