Id just like to add sry about that link. I noticed after you were looking for a double bass pedal. Not to worry all the pedals I mentioned also come as double bass including the one that I sent the link of.I have tried almost every Pedal in the book. When I started Drumming I was thinking about getting a Pearl pedal but after playing it in guitar center I decided against it. It all depends on how much you want to pay. My personal favorit pedal is the Axis Longboard because they are increadable pedals and the longer foot board alows for heal to toe techniques to be much smoother. The disadvantage is its expensive. DW makes a whole great ling of pedals. The best obviously being the 9000 but its also the most expensive. The DW 7000 is a realy good pedal that is a little less expensive and then inbetween the 7000 and the 9000 is the 5000. All realy great pedals that i would recomend. Iorn Cobras are also nice pedals and extreamy durable but I dont like the way they feel as much as the Axis or DW pedals. Of course what some people would consider the best pedal on the market would be the Trick Bigfoot...
...try not to druel on the keyboard. This also hapens to be the most expensive pedal out there. Good luck looking for a pedal I hoped this helped.
I recomend trying the pedal to see how it feels before you buy it.
What do you think, sir?Thanks for advice. Sorry to ask a dumb question, but do I buy a "right footed" or "left footed" double bass pedal? When I play with a single pedal, I play it with my right foot, so does this mean I ought to get a RF double bass pedal? I'm confused.
Let's break it down for you, to help you understand, but short answer is gonna be "yes". If your right foot is playing kick drum, your left foot is on the hi-hat. So, put a double pedal into the equation, your "main" or "primary" pedal will still be your right foot. The left foot operates a "slave pedal", that is connected to a secondary beater via a drive shaft. This set-up still gives the right foot kick drum duty (full time), but now the left foot has a choice. Or a dual role. It still has the hi-hat and/or it can play "double-bass" via the slave pedal. Everyone has different preferences as far as make/model. If you can, first, know how much money you can spend. Then go to a drum shop/Guitar Center/etc. and get your feet on as many pedals as you can. No sense talking about $300-$600 dollar pedals if your budget is under $200.Thanks for advice. .... do I buy a "right footed" or "left footed" double bass pedal?
