Default Some People Don't Know S***

I was trying to sell my Tama Rockstar-Pro kit, was told by everyone on the Tams FB page that I couldn't get more than $250, just sold it last week and made $425 after shipping. I put it on the Tama site because I thought they'd be the experts, but apparently, they don't knows s***.

I couldn't agree with you more, johnnyringo! Not only do these self-proclaimed experts know very little about the instruments that we love, I would bet they are the same ones who can't play worth a s*** either! Talk is cheap! I'd love to see just one of them count to four for a few steady beats on their bass pedal! Don't let them get to you! Their opinions are worth jack squat!

Exactly! I don't have a FB account and never plan to have one! Too many self-proclaimed "experts" that I don't need to deal with. And, yes, that's what makes this forum great. I've learned more here and appreciate everyone's input.

Sounds like a double bass pedal made for using both feet to give the effect of having two bass drums but using one

Exactly! It's the "Iron Cobra Jr." pedal. There was also a left Iron Cobra pedal, and I was able to get parts from it to make the "Jr." complete. I did have to have a small piece custom made to allow the interconnecting shaft to function. Just need to clean everything up and it will be like-new!
