For the price of a double pedal why not just get another bass drum?

    My advice, get what you want and damn what everyone else thinks.


    I don't know what I want yet. I'm just weighing the pros and cons because I kept coming up with too many pros and not enough cons. I knew I was missing something.

      If you have the $$, you can always have a double pedal handy so you can use either two basses or a single bass depending on the venue, the type of music , etc. I already have a double pedal, so the next kit i get, i'm gonna get a double bass setup and use whatever is neccessary for the music at the time.

        Plus maintanence is higher due to
        one more drum to buy heads for,
        I'd much rather spend $30 on 1
        BD head than $60 on 2


        Two more...

        With an extra bass drum you also need
        one more BD mic and another channel
        on the mixer

        And finally, I'm just getting too ****************ing old
        to lug around a big double BD kit and I
        prefer smaller setups, I have a 6-pc kit
        now and alot of times I'll leave some of
        them at home.

        You can call me lazy, but my back thanks me

            Hell, I plan on getting at LEAST a 7-piece, along with an additional snare, and at LEAST 6 suspended cymbals...

            This is all eventually of course... right now I have a 5-piece with one suspended cymbal, and one hella bent top hi-hat.

                I love two bass drums. I am more than willing to carry them around.
