how hard is it to change 2 single bass pedals in to 1 double bass pedal, my friend set me the challenge to do it and if i do it i get £100. also how would i go about doing it and what extra parts would i need. thanks

i would think all you need is a big pedal box and a soldering iron.

get the pedals, take them out of there respective cases, drill holes needed for the pots, input/output and switch... solder the 2 together (ones output to the other input) and yeah....

seems pretty simple imo.

I think he is likely talking about a "bass pedal" for hitting the kick drum rather than an effects pedal for bass guitar.

I don't really know much about drum hardware, but if that's the case TS, I'm pretty sure you have more work ahead than the prize of the bet justifies. To my inexperienced eyes it doesn't seem like a practical build at all.

the hardest part would be finding a way to mount the second beater on the right side pedal..

on a single kick, thers just the one bar ( idk what it's called) thats connected to the beater. you'd need a second independant bar for the beater to be attached to, if you wanted the left pedal to control it independantly..

the bar connecting the 2 pedals wouldn't be too hard, I dont think, but... for the price of 2 single kicks and the $100 bet, you could buy an ok double pedal, anyway..

Buy a cheap double bass when trading in the 2 single bass pedals?

That way, you can lie & get the money.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

put a second kick drum in front of the second pedal. Instant Keith Moon-esque win

i think you would need 3 kick pedals, then a few small uj's (universal joints) and some kinda bar to get from one to the other...

to much work me thinks, just buy one, you can try liein to get some money i guess.. lol
