I feel your pain...only in a different area. This guy's pedal was just so limp feeling. He liked his spring tension really low which I have a tremendously hard time playing. I had to use the rebound of the head for the quick return I like and that gets old quick on a shuffle pattern. It hurt! My shin muscles hurt for 2 days afterwards, I was slightly limping. So yea, that stuff is kind of important....Next day my knees were sore, like they were gona give out mid step at times, awful feeling. Now I get exactly why I am as anal about my set up as I am, I need to be or Im going to strain something.
Oh and I had to do a little solo on a 2 piece for the first time. And I just love solos in blues SOOOOO much
Especially with a crap pedal and no toms. Sitting too low. With the snare too high. And 13" hi hats that were too close together. I just felt like such a tool lol.
I hate being that guy who has to change pedals. Plus even if I had mine on hand, his was a Sonor Giant Step, and at the end of the night, he had to show me because I couldn't figure out how it unattached lol. Nice pedal, I just couldn't handle how it was adjusted.
Hey, this is the only place I get to vent so thanks for listening.
You guys who do kit shares all the time...yea, you has my sympathies. I can hear you all now rolling your eyes
