  • Pedal Placement

    So I'm looking at getting a KD-80 or KD-120 for xmas, and I'd want to get a double pedal setup with it too (the advantage of having your birthday the day after Christmas is that you can pull off double gifts like these). So here's my problem. I'm currently using a pair of KD-7s and some mismatched pedals. My setup looks kind of like this:

    /hbb\

    (h = high-hat pedal, b = bass drum pedal, / and \ are the struts of my rack)

    It's pretty tight under there, and I'm worried that if I go to a KD-80 there won't be enough room for me to fit all my pedals under there. Do they make double pedals that can go right next to each other? Or am I going to have to move my hh to the other side of my rack:

    h/b b\

    Did that make any sense?

    Others may scoff at the idea, but what I've done is to rotate the left rack leg out slightly to accomodate me. This illustration is an exageration (I'm at work, the rack is at home) but it should give you an idea.



    Most double-bass players like to have the pedals comfortably apart so as not to pinch the snare in their crotch.

      He's the man with the plan,
      Has room for his feet under his stand,
      He's the man. (Shack!)

      He can carry a beat,
      Never worry 'bout the heat,
      He's the man. (Shack!)

      He's a muthuh... (Shut yo mouth!)

      I'm just talkin' 'bout Shack!
