Help--Double Bass Pedal or Two Bass Drums?
I'm just wondering which is better to use for metal drumming, two bass drums or a double bass pedal?
In my opinion, the double bass pedal is preferable. The main reason is because of tuning.
It can be extremely difficult to get two bass drums tuned in such a way that they sound exactly the same. If the two drums sound different then the whole point of using double bass--speed--is negated.
Another consideration is that a double bass pedal is considerably less expensive than two bass drums and two pedals, as well as easier to transport.
Good Luck with your drumming!
