So my birthday present to myself was a brand-new Pearl PowerShifter double bass drum pedal. I’ve been holding off on this for about three years, because of the bad rap I’ve given double pedals (you see, they turned metal and prog rock into almost complete crap over the last 15 years). But some still know how to use a double bass appropriately, and they can make a fill burn in the right spot.
So I got one. It even works with my V-Drums and everything.
Now if only my left foot weren’t so darn retarded. It’s eight years behind my right foot, and I can’t play anything in sync. I’m sure that my neighbors are learning to hate me.
