my homemade bass drum pedal

  • Опубликовано:  8 лет назад
  • This is just a pedal i made out of junk to practice hand/foot coordination. Took me about an hour in total to make it and it worked pretty well for me when i was just starting out on drums. I used it mostly with a 5 gallon water jug kick drum that i set up. But I acquired a basic kick pedal pretty soon after i made this pedal. I really just posted it here on youtube to show my Family back in New York.

    I am pleasantly surprised that almost 5000 people have watched this little video.

    Thanks for watching and if you liked this video please come check me out on if you would like to see more projects such as how to make a nice kick drum for cheap or crazy cheap

    wow, thats mad, all these companies put so much money in to all this gimmicky engineering when someone like you can just throw togethera pedal with the fundamentals of potentially a whole new innovative design... lol good work.

    That's a pretty creative concept, it allows for longer beater shaft since the pedal shaft is shorter. its shafty man

    That is why i use an Iron Cobra Jr. Please read the description. This pedal was not made for use with a real kit.

    Thanks for watching tho

    One word to say bout this... "Ghetto" but these are hard times. way to save money by makin your own. how does it hold up tho? looks like it will fall apart while in use.

    The materials are very random and probably hard to find. I could send you a diagram that outlines the basic mechanics at work in this design if you like. Just send me you Email address.

    Thanks for watching

    Im sure it is possible but i wouldn't know where to begin with that project.

    Thanks for the kind words. And your English is fine. I made a diagram of how the pedal works. So just send me a personal message with your email address and i will send you the diagram.

    Glad you dig the pedal. I wouldn't know where to begin with making a double pedal. That would probably be really tough. If you make one send me a picture or something.

    I was thinking that hard foam would be closer to a felt beater than wood or plastic. I am using a 5 gallon water jug as a bass drum so i think hard plastic or wood would sound too clicky hitting against the jug. Anyway I have recently acquired a bass drum pedal so my homemade pedal is laying around until i can get a woodblock or cowbell to hook it up to.

    Thanks for watching

    nice! it work alot better if you use a harder ball than nerf? will work alot better if you have wood or plastic.

    Im sorry, i would like to help you but the parts i used were very random and somewhat hard to find. The basic mechanics are pretty simple, i could probably draw you a diagram of how it works and you could improvise materials. Send me a personal message and ill see what i can do. Thank you for the kind words by the way.
