Anyone ever try to get a sort of double bass drum kit by using a cocktail style drum as the second bass on the side of a hi hat? I’m really interested in the idea of “drums replicating samples music” and this seems like something in that veign.

I think DW had a pedal that clipped to the lower rim of a floor tom so it would allow you to do that.  I like the idea/pathyour on...keep us posted

Louie Bellson used a Cocktail tom in his set up but I don't think he used the pedal.   He was way ahead of his time....wonder if AVH got his ideas from this set.

Yeh the heigh may be an issue- but the idea is that would be more of a bass drum than a tom but a tom when I need to be. Really unsure and don’t necessarily have the equipment to do it right now but I did want to see if anyone knew of people doing this because I like the idea of having 2 kicks with different tones. Couldn’t I just use a regular 16”16/14 floor Tom? And I didn’t know about that pedal I’ll have to check it out. Nor did I know about this drummer why was he using it if he didn’t use a kick pedal, any idea?

When I saw Matt Abts in X2 with Johnny Neel, he didn't have any bass drums.  He had a floor tom on each side with cocktail pedals.

Does Whitey Glan, his Camco kit with the double bass drums set up cocktail-style count?
