Drummers who want to get their feet wet playing cocktail drums have had limited options. Metropolitan is now filling their needs by providing Cocktail Drum Pedal Brackets that can be attached a floor tom, allowing drummers with an easy way to convert floor toms into a bass drum.
"We are all about getting drummers into Cocktail Drumming." says Matthew Belyea, owner of Metropolitan Drum. "You can use your existing floor tom, a side snare and hi hat, and you've got yourself a portable kit that fits into a three by two square foot space on a stage."
Reverse Pedal Brackets are available for floor toms ranging from 14 to 20 inches in diameter. Built of 1" thick cold rolled steel, with offset bends to increase strength, these offer more structural strength than traditional cocktail pedal brackets, and add stability to any drum. Finished in a durable rubber coating, they sell for a modest $49.99. A reversed pedal is available; in top manufacturers models, also start at $49.99.
