Duallist Drum Pedal in action! Playing the D4 Duallist pedal. Video will open in a new window. The DUALLIST D4 Double Kick Drum Pedal. I really do not want to get rid of this but here it is. The Duallist allows double bass drum patterns to be played with just one foot on one bass drum while enabling drummers to retain independent control of the hi-hat. In essence, you play the down strokes and it plays another note on the upstrokes. It works like a charm. Almost everything about the Duallist range is made of ultra-tough lightweight DuPont Zytel. Basically, these pedals are lighter than anything else (but theyre still sturdy and stay where theyre put) and probably stronger than anything youve ever used. Theyre actually in use in some seriously high-profile shows, but you might not have even noticed Machine Head, Living Colour, Saxon, Beyonce, Anthrax…. Ive snapped enough hardened steel beater shafts, broken chains and cam teeth, cracked hinges and had enough parts strip and break over the years that I know metal construction is no guarantee of a pedals durability. There are metal parts on the pedal, but reading the product literature reveals that many of the parts use more space age materials than the pedals you or I currently play. The advantage of all this is that the pedal is lighter in weight but remains extremely durable. Id like to see more hardware manufactured from strong lightweight materials like this. You’d gain the ability to control your hi-hat but might lose some of the playing techniques, patterns and speed that you’ve spent years torturing your left foot to do. However, if you play double bass with two separate bass drums and used a Duallist on your primary bass drum, you’d conceivably gain the ability to control your hi-hat while playing double bass with your main foot in dual mode. Then by returning the pedal to single mode, you could do all the other patterns you currently play on two bass drums. In fact, I can also see nothing other than musical taste to prevent someone from putting two Duallists on a double bass drum kit. Sixteenth-note flam rolls, anyone? Drummers interested in pushing the limits of poly-rhythms and ostinatos may embrace the Duallist as an indispensable tool in their arsenals. In this regard, the Duallist might be a little like throwing gasoline on their creative fires! I priced this to sell. Please ask any questions before purchasing.
