OVERVIEW

Lay down unbelievable bass drum licks!

The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal provides all the features of a double pedal plus a left footpedal linked to a third beater. Enables you to play fast bass rolls as well as using the left foot to punctuate the right-foot rhythm. The right foot can play single pedal patterns with just one beater and then kick into double mode for great double-beater patterns - all with one foot. Then add in a left-foot pattern in triple mode for mind-blowing bass drum rhythms.

The Duallist Triple is actually 4 pedals in one. It operates as a single, as a conventional double, as a Duallist Double, and as the world's first practical triple pedal.

One-year warranty.

Tough to figure out for an ole guy with set habits. But I wouldn't give it up now. Like going from a typewriter to texting...you gotta want to and then work at it. I jammed the foot trigger that changes from single to twin beaters on the right foot. You just gotta learn how to use the up stroke...practice, practice, practice and now it flows naturally. I actually let it happen without much forethought. I use a lot of double bass for ease of rhythm. The twin beater adds a lot of flare to my three beater set-up. I say go for it, challenge yourself, be special.

As a Mechanical Engineer (and relatively new drummer - 3 yrs), I was amazed as I read about this thing. My curiousity was hounding me for months, which led me to finally get one so, (A): I could examine how it works, and (B): find a way to short-cut my standard 2 pedal double-bassing learning curve I was fighting with. My faith was sorely misplaced. Getting used to the overall "mechanics" of this device was very time consuming and cumbersome. Do not think that this "Cheater" pedal is going to work wonders for you. At least not right away. If you are a bit green at double bassing, and you think this will answer your prayers - it won't. If you choose to be patient, and you train yourself on this, what you invest - time wise, will not really lend itself to "regular" double bass pedals, it will only lend itself to your use of THIS pedal. This is a one-of-a-kind device, and must be approached with such a mentality. These are the inherent flaws, and/or the things I found difficult to get used to: Problem #1: When the main chassis pedal is in "double" mode, your right foot is pressing against two springs. That's Double the usual amount of resistance for your foot. It is very tough and it will wear out your foot/leg quickly. It is, however the price you pay if you need to lay down constant double beats by pumping one foot. Problem #2: The 2 separate mechanisms that enable/disable the "single foot double" function, are very awkward. They are clunky, and require more than the usual amount of concentration and foot coordination. Its very hard to do during a song, without messing up your timing or missing a bass drum hit (cuz youre too busy hitting a lever). Problem #3: the design of the third beater, and its associated "arm" for centering the beater closer to the other two beaters, is an engineering no-no. The impact of each hit, combined with the leverage created by the arm, is a bad combination. The bearing assembly wears, and the whole third beater ends up getting sloppy, however with the strategic placement/introduction of a UHMW plastic bushing (1/8" thick washer) between the moving arm and the stationary bearing housing, the slop can be minimized, and it can be almost good as new. Problem #4: When doing relatively slow tempo double kicks with the main chassis double beater, you cannot control the unintentional "rebound buzz" on the drum head that comes from the "slave" beater. If you are pumping fast, you don't have this problem, but are we expected to only pump this thing and 100+ bpm? I could go on, but that should get at least a couple of you thinking a little more realistically about what exactly this thing is. In short, As long as you're willing to put just as much effort into this device, as any other double pedal, and don't think it will provide any shortcuts - you will probably be ok.

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        Ive used the pedal and found it fun to play with. Its not a cheater pedal It is what It is.A pedal to add dimention and flare or whatever you want it to do. I always knew there was competition between drummers but to call it cheating is just silly. That means a double pedal is cheating also.Anyway the price is high the quality a little poor but if you want somehting to fiddle with and you have the cash go for it .But its not for me I dont have that extra cash.

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        I have been playing drums for 5 years now. I have tried many pedals single and double. I have played on this one, and I have to say. even though it is harder to use, hard to control, and needs maintenance, it is a great pedal. I spend at least half a year, just getting the feel of it, but once you get it down, it is great for poly-rhythms and funky bass. Although I have trouble seeing how it could cost so much to do this to a double pedal. I think if you want to expand your rhythms and you have the money. go for it.

        Just curious

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        How can there be such a thing as a "cheater" pedal? It's not about power or speed...it's about control. I would think a complex axle system such as this would require a fair level of control no matter who plays it. What I want to know is...durability...consistency...issues with foot freedom...switches....flaws/strengths....sounds like skilled long term drummers say it's okay for what it does, useful, but not any kind of real short-cut....newer drummers expecting to "cheat" realize that it is impossible to "cheat" when it come to rhythm, and find this too complex for a beginning drummer anyway. ANyone can play fast and loud.......what matters is playing quality...does this allow for complex consistent control...or does it just fall apart and play sloppy...

        Duallist Kick Pedal, Works for me

        By Drumgirlbambam

        from Seattle, Washington

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        I began playing drums at 8 years old. I was in my first band when I was 13. I have played professionally for over 35 years. I never used a double bass pedal until the past ten years. I can do 16th notes on my single kick pedal but the double bass pedals add some depth especially during a solo. I purchased the duallist pedal and it does exactly what I thought it would do and it does it nicely. I like the different effect of the pedal. As far as the engineering of the pedal and the double spring tension?? It's not a problem at all. I actually don't turn the second beater off. I play by the ball of my foot and never let my beater go all the way back so I have no need to lock out the second beater making it available at all times, very cool. I play classic rock, jazz, country rock and I could use this pedal in any ocassion. It's not a cheater pedal,it's another tool. It's different than a single pedal and different than a double bass pedal. Ya, I could do everything it does with one pedal but I always think out of the box. If it works use it. For what it is, the engineering is fine. Give it a try if it works for you great. I like it.

        My attempt at a fair review.

        By Honored Shinobi

        from Columbia, SC

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        My friend owned this for a short period of time and then traded them to me for my old sound percussion double bass which is when I was able to try them out before selling them on craigslist. I'm not going to comment on whether I believe it is cheating or not because it all depends on how you use it. I am merely going to point out a few things about this pedal that I believe people should consider before purchasing any pedal. Overall, I believe it needs a little redesigning because the beater positions are a bit whacky so the beaters hit the head in different positions so each beater produces a different tone (not noticable when playing really fast.) Even conventional double pedals have that problem though to a lesser degree. Personally I hate the fact that it is plastic but it is sturdy enough to handle daily abuse. It is a bit complex for the beginner drummer to setup properly and it is a bit awkward to use at first. For the drummers who claim that it allows them to use the hi-hat during double bass rolls, you need to admit that the third beater isn't neccessary for this, the regular duallist pedal can do that and even a coordinated drummer with a conventional double bass pedal can incoporate the hi-hat in double bass patterns.. In my opinion it isn't as fun as playing my regular double pedal but I did set up two bass drums with a duallist pedal on each drum and that was actually a lot of fun to play around on with 4 beaters (note I was only fooling around not actually trying to incorporate this technique into anything remotely musical.) I think the price is outrageous for something that is anything short of perfection but if you can get them on sale or if you have a few extra bucks then I say go for it because you can always return it if you are unsatisfied.

        Duallist Triple Kick

        Comments about The Duallist Triple Kick Double Pedal:

        After getting use to the foot switches to turn on and off the double bass, this pedal does its job but nothing more. I use an older Cobra double most of the time. People keep referring to this pedal as a "cheater pedal". That is far from what it is. To use the triple kick pedal you still need a good amount of experience with a normal double pedal, and lets face a real fact; when you're playing a double bass beat with a normal double pedal, you can't use the hi-hat pedal. Using the Duallist, you can finally expand your possibilities by adding open/closed hi-hat beats. As far as any other extraordinary features, there really aren't any. If you just want to play double bass beats without using your hi-hat pedal then go with a normal double pedal; they are generally more durable and more fun to use.
