How do you connect a double bass pedal to a hi hat?
The traditional setup is to attach the primary pedal to the bass drum as you would a single pedal and to place the second, slave pedal just to the right of the hi hat stand’s pedal board. There are other uses for these pedals to play other percussion instruments, with similar set up methods.
How far apart should double bass pedals be?
Beater distance should be about 1 1/2″ to 2 inches from the head in a rest state. Adjust the angles and tension to accomplish that position. You will have 3 adjustments to experiment with pedal tension, beater angle, and footboard height.
Does Dave Grohl use double bass pedals?

What does a double bass pedal do?
A double bass drum pedal operates much the same way only with a second footplate controlling a second beater on the same drum. Most commonly this is attached by a shaft to a remote beater mechanism alongside the primary pedal mechanism.
How do you adjust the angle on a bass drum?
Adjust the angle of the beater by loosening the beater angle cam adjustment square or Allen key bolt (fig 2) then tighten it back up. It’s best to make fine adjustments as too much adjustment either way will prevent the beater from striking the head.
Where should the beater hit the bass drum?
As a general rule the beater should strike the bass drum slightly higher than center. About an inch above works for most folks. If the beater hits directly on center the head tends to bounce more and it flams against the head easier if it is buried into the head.
