Kadence BP-01 Bass Drum Pedal is the perfect fit to complete your drum kit
When setting up your drum set for the first time, pay special attention to the bass pedal. You can find it attached to the hoop of your bass drum. As you step on the pedal, the beater should strike the bass drum head in the middle of your drum and then bounce back.
If stepping on the drum pedal is too hard or makes your legs tired, then you’ll need to adjust the action or tension of the bass pedal to make it less tight. If the pedal stays on the drum head and does not bounce back, then the tension is too loose. You will need to adjust the tension to be tighter so the drum head springs back.
There are two main ways you can fine-tune your drum pedal; the tension of the pedal and the angle of the beater. It’s really easy to make these adjustments and there’s only one main part for each adjustment:
- To increase the tension, loosen the upper tension adjustment nut then tighten lower tension adjustment nut.
- To decrease the tension, loosen the lower tension adjustment nut then tighten the upper tension adjustment nut to secure it in place.
