  • New hybrid set up idea...

    For the longest time, I've wanted to put together a hybrid kit. I want it to be mostly acoustic but still have the option for electronic sounds. But mostly I did NOT want to have a remote kick off to the right of my main pedal OR to have to use my left foot. So I want to get a left side double pedal for a trigger pad and put my regular set up on each side of that...

    What are your thoughts on hybrid kits? I've seen very few that actually look comfortable let alone cool looking...

    Also, I really want to make a very low profile (stealth) rack set up... remember Spoon's kit?!

    That's about as far as I've got. Not sure how to mount the rest of my gear, lol.

      This set up gives me the option of two different kicks using my right foot, double kick, and different sounds triggered with the left foot if needed, all with only one double pedal...

      Ideally I'd love to have an acoustic main snare, kick, and cymbals, with electronic toms, side snare, and kick options...

      I will put this together someday when I get a left side double pedal. And obviously it has to match my other pedals because I'm a nerd.

      Was thinking about DW's xf pedal and hi hat with a regular left side double pedal to make up for the difference in length due to the bass drum hoop. That way the heel plates could maybe still line up nicely... Hmmmmmmm... lol $!$!$!$

          Agreed. OP has talent. Looks kinda like 1950's cartoonish stuff. Good stuff.

            Haha, thanks my doods!

            Anyone put a regular pedal next to a long board attached to a kick before? I can't find pictures anywhere. Just the pedals next to each other for reference...

              Neat ideas Josh! You're the opposite of that other guy on the forum who shows us odd-looking set-ups with the Frankenstein-rack parts blacked out LOL

                id suggest getting a set of offset double pedals ....theyre the ones that place the bass drum in the center .... placing that like a downward facing trigger pad (with the reversed beaters ) like the one from pintech, this way the pedal doesnt interfere with your rack . you can also scooch the acoustic bass in a little more natural spot, .....heck if you get them in tight enough , you be able to pullof a second bass though, it'll look like one of dave mccains older kits lol.

                  I've always liked that idea but my snare would be mounted of the smaller rack foot. Putting the trigger in the center would actually put it right in the way.

                          It could, depending on how far from the kick rim you'd have to place it. And then there's the issue of non-matching hardware... I know there's a few others on the forum that would rather matching hardware.

                          Thanks! I'm actually in the process of putting something together. Just need better tool to cut the square rack... I'll be sure to post plenty of pics (from both sides) of the rig when completed.


                          Also, thinking about a mini rack with my regular stands to create a cross bar. Pic shows how I'd add the bar since all my pipes are too short;

                            I’ve played this the last 2 years.

                              That's what I've done with a Gibraltar rack, added a 46" curved bar that spans from the Stealth mini rack at one end off the middle part of a cymbal stand, and the same using a complete cymbal stand at the other end. 46" bar is attached using Super Multi Clamps and works a treat and makes best use of the stands I already have.
