i put mine on the right side of my hats because i can still get my hats close. i used to play my hats about 12" from my snare so where they are now is just fine by me. ive seen a lot of guys that play with the slave pedal on the left but that would be awkward for me to do.

I started out putting the slave on the left simply because of the hi-hat stand's base. Once I got a spinning base on the hats, I could then place the slave to the right and still have the hats close. I would suggest getting a Hi-hat with a revolving base if that is your problem.

I used to, but then I got a remote hat and a 12" snare and the pedal placements really opened up underneath there.

im thinkin about puttin my slave on the left... i have the Peal Eliminator, w/ interchangeable Cams... my hi-Hat legs always take off my slave cam, and if the dont take it off, it rubs, and messes the recoil up BIG TIME

i have my toms and snare in a kind of like triangle, very similar to David Silverias set up and i like to have my hi hats along side my 10" tom so i still have plenty of room for my slave pedal to the right of my hi-hat, Im 6ft 8 so my legs are pretty long and my pedal set up is a bit strange because of that

If I have my double pedal set up I have the slave pedal between my hats and snare, so to the right of the hh stand

I currrently have the slave right next to my hat on the right side. the leg on my hat hardly ever gets in the wayof the slave, but sometimes there is contact between the slave and hat leg, so i'm going to invest in a DW 9000 hia-hat stand. It has 2 legs and uses the pedal itself as a leg, so theres no third leg to get in the way.

Heres a picture of it.

I have a 2legged Iron Cobra hh stand and I recommend that type of stands to anyone having a double pedal. Very comfortable.

K!S!N - I use DW 9000 hihat stand. You'll love it for sure. Stable, and really smooth. The two-leg design enables you to set up your pedals really comfortably

Is there any brands of hardware out there that lock the hi hat and slave double bass pedal together? As in keeps your pedal from pushin away from you. I built a thing that I use all the time that does this but was just courious if there is such a thing?

Thanks
