Your bass drum pedal(s)

Postby Harvey K-Tel » 28 Dec 2017, 23:04

I've got an old Premier kick pedal, probably circa 1980. I just replaced the spring for the first time in over 20 years. The felt beater is a bit flat on one side but still works great. I've had to tape a quarter into the clamp, though, as it doesn't close tightly enough on the drum's rim, so the coin acts like a shim.

People who can actually play the drums don't need pedals.

I have none.

So you're a better drummer than Phil Collins? :?

All the North American options and you pick a British kick pedal!
