Question Kick Drum Pedal for BIG feet


Folks:

I am a big fella (6'5" @250 lbs) with BIG feet (size 15EEEE). I am looking for kick drum pedals with a LONG foot board without the hinged heel plate. I like heel-toe technique -- I am a fusion jazz player who is tired of being forced to play barefoot by kick drum pedals with dinky footboards. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Tim

You may want to try a different method.

Re: Kick Drum Pedal for BIG feet


Might not be the best example, but you don't need longboards to do heel toe. Though If you do, I recommend Axis or pearl over trick, assuming that it's jazz based fusion. Tricks are a bit heavier than the other two.

Excellent demonstration , In my years, I've never used my heel on bass pedals. I've always been up in the air with my feet. Sort of like a crossroads playing but not strictly ever using my heel as a focal point . But only as balance.

Hmm, I'll be keeping this in mind. I have big feet as well.
