Can you use a regular double bass pedal on electronic drums?

Can you use a normal double kick on a set of electric drums?

ANSWER

Yes, you CAN, provided that your bass trigger pad is designed to accommodate double beaters. Factors to consider are the size of the pad and the stability of the design ( to avoid wobbling). You don't mention what electronic set you have but you could do research to find out.

Here is an example of a bass drum trigger pad which DOES work with a double bass pedal:


Roland KD-8 Kick Trigger Pad



While you are on the site, you may want to look around--there are other options.
