Ok, so this is my first double bass pedal (actually, first pedal period), so excuse my ignorance. The beaters are currently at about 40 degrees from completely horizontal, and I would like to put them at about 80, essentially making them stationary closer to vertically than horizontally, if you see what I mean.

I dont have many tools, except a key to tighten some of the 'drum screws' and your typical set of screwdrivers.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks

edit: also, the front part of the pedal (where the beaters and springs are) keep falling back towards the pedal itself. How do I prevent this?

You want to set the beaters 80 degrees from the floor? That's like inch or two away from the head. How are you supposed to play like this?
