Knex Bass Drum Pedal

Introduction: Knex Bass Drum Pedal

This is my Knex bass drum pedal that I've made.

I made this one day when I decided I needed a practice pedal for me to do different playing techniques on, so here it is.

I never intended to upload this but after a few months i realised i hadn't repaired it once (probably due to it being over strengthened) so thought why not.


  • Very strong and durable
  • Could be used as the real deal if in a pinch


  • Uses three broken pieces
  • Uses non Knex pieces

Then non Knex pieces are the spring assembly unit

Im not going to be posting instructions for this as I have exams and coursework to do.



I now have instructions for this available here:

Check it out if you want to make this.

As I said no instructions, this is all ya getting. Besides it would take the fun out of it if I just told you how to make it.

    The drum pedal by itself is really cool. But it's very sad you're not willing to make instructions, I'm sure there are people out there that need more detailed instructions (or even pictures)
