Introduction: Double Base Rockband Drums

My brother plays drums on rock band and he gets leg cramps. I'm a guitarist but i thought that it would be nice to have a double base petal so you can switch legs if you get tired and for awesome effect. (its fun to show-off)...

Step 1: Materials

2 base petals (ebay or second drum if you have one)
Y connector

Step 2: Connecting

connect wires to Y connector

Step 3: Connecting

connect 2 base petals to y connector then to drums

Step 4: Playing

Rock out and play as you normally do.. takes some getting used to but this is very handy for big rock endings and if you leg gets tired



i was going to upload a movie but my computers being gay......

The commercial version of this lets you press down on one peddle to hit a note even if the other one is still down. Are you able to do this with these or do you have to lift up one peddle before using the other?

There is a commercial 'circuit' that you can buy, or it comes with the new RB2 pedals packaged with the circuit. Or you can build your own like I did. I may post an instructable for it if I ever get the time and take some pics.
