Can't make up my mind, help!

Hi all!

Recently I've been thinking a lot about purchasing another bass drum it's really ennoying because I can't make up my mind about setting up a double bass set or staying with a simple bass set-up.

Would some of you help me out with your opinions/questions I should keep in mind while making my choice/other...

Maybe this will help me make a decision.

Thanks in advance,
Me.

Do you travel much with your drums?

For the show it's probably cooler to have a double bassdrum set-up, but I'd just buy one bassdrum with twinpedal, and with the money you save buy some more cymbals or something.

if ur a triggered player then yes 2 kicks ....but thats the only real advantage to 2 bassdrums.... if ur not playing death metal , one kick should be jus fine.... but 2 kicks look bad the fuk asssssss

i agree with frank with money business. im actually going to sell my second bass drum for twin pedal pretty soon cuz moving it is just a pain in the buttocks. i was afraid getting a double pedal would make it more uncomfortable for the left foot to play double bass but i think ive seen enough pros to prove that its quite possible.

if you have a big drum platform or drum room then why not go
for the full 2 bass drum set-up. also if you play lots of double bass
a direct hit of the left pedal to a bass drum just feel so
darn sweet imo.

I don't play death metal, but I'm into the metal vibe: Angra, Symphony X, Rage etc...

My project with my guitarist is a power metal project, so yes quite a lot double bass is involved. My idea, if I go for the double bass set-up would be a Raymond Herrera type set-up (the old one).

Thanks for you help and advice, keep 'em coming friends!

Yahoo, I'm going over to Germany to get the set this summer! Either Sonor 3005's or Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau's!

Me happy.

Yeah, I've got a slight preference for the Yam, because the brand's hardware is indestructible and has many choices availeble...

Eventually that is what I'll do. I'm already playing open handed and I'm going to stick this way. I'd get a remote hat to do it Mangini style, but I only have enough for that set-up for now.

Cheers Metal Snake,
Me.
