  • a question...

    Do any of you regularly replace the spring assembly on your kick pedal? Has anyone ever had a failure in the field? Just curious. I've never had a problem, but it would be a real bummer if it failed on the job because of metal fatigue.



    ...or am I being too paranoid?

        I've never replaced the spring on any pedal I've owned, but I do bring a second pedal to any gig, just in case.

            Never had one fail, but I do have a spare in my toolsmall parts box. They are cheap enough to have a spare on hand just in case.

                yes, on my old Rogers swivomatic. Spring broke (after 20 years of regular use at the time).

                    Never had one break at a gig........when I would shed when I was younger in my parents basement, I broke a couple. They would actually wear thin at the eyelets and then let go. I do keep a couple of spare springs along with some other assorted odds and ends in one of my gig bags just in case.

                        Not sure I ever broke one, but I have spares in my case, and as it's a double pedal, I could always swap the primary with the slave... but yeah, couldn't hurt to have a backup!

                            never thought of it, but its a damn good idea to have a spare, now that you mention it.
                            Wha?
