I believe, the toe stop sits at the very top of the foot board, with the flanged back edge resting in a groove at the top of the footboard. There is a screw that holds a chain to top of the footboard and connects the chain to the footboard. I think you simply replace the factory screw with the longer toe stop bolt and nut. The bottom bit of the chain that connects to the footboard has a small flanged housing. This housing on the chain is designed to hold the nut in place as you screw in the new toe stop plate bold. It is super easy . . . and I think that about sums it up. You just unscrew the chain off the footboard, and replace the toe plate so it fits, and reattach the chain to the footboard with the toe plate bolt and nut.

I want to build an amp that will deliver a bass drum sound for the stomp box I built.

As a 40 year guitarist and repair technician I had to laugh at this until I thought about my younger days of starting out. What I see here is that you made a momentary trigger out of a stomp box that apparently had problems, that you think you can build an electronic bass drum to play it with. Is this correct? See, the amp only gives a bass drum sound ONLY if a bass drum sound goes through it. Amps only provide audio power to the input signal. Where to get you bass drum sound is what you need to find. I believe you are thinking of a sample. A sample is an actual recorded sound of a bass drum that you could actually trigger by stepping on that button. You could find this on most cheaper casio, yamaha, emerson, radioshack, keyboards or drumpads or any of those amateur toys. Most of them allow a trigger pedal to be plugged into it and operational. Now, after you find something with a bass drum sample that you can trigger with your pedal, that device should allow you to plug it into an amp to amplify it. I hope I didn't confuse you much and had a close perspective of what you tried to describe. Please let me know if I can help further.

Im having problems attaching my Gibraltar Intruder Direct-Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal  to the bass drum

Does it hit the drumhead?
I guess you need to read the instruction manual, because double pedals usually have special way of attaching and tightening mechanism because it's larger.

I just bought this kit and I'm watching the DVD Drumset 101 that came with it and it starts by saying to "lower" the bass drum spikes. They aren't even attached, I don't even know...

The "spikes" are the legs near the backside of the drum that keep it from rotating... Some actually have spikes that go into sockets and dig into the floor under the drum. The photo shows the legs. The drum pedal may have spikes and or a clip/clamp that grabs the nearside of the bass rim to keep the pedal from pushing the drum away.

I Have a Yamaha dd55c electronic drum machine without the bass and Hi-Hat pedals. I am good with electronics and wondered how they are wired, or alternatively if they are available to buy from anywhere.

The pedals are domes with Piezo disc sensors. SImple two wire connection... the original pedals are really NOT very good... You might try to find regular pedals used for drum sets... they have a beater and sensor. They do cost a bunch.

My ludwig L315FP bass drum pedal keeps bouncing and i have loosened the spring all of the way. I still cannot get it from multi hitting the bass drum. Help?

Go to YouTube and search for "Bass pedal" There are many videos. Select and view ones on "setup" and also view "technique". These will solve the problems you are having.

My speed cobra double pedal has alwyas been fine but i think i must of set it up wrong or maybe damaged it because now the slave pedal beater won't touch the bass drum head, it's like a couple of cm's...

There are MANY adjustments and some may have slipped. The clamp of the beater to the shaft would be the most suspect. At each of the universals there is the possibility for loose setscrews. Also see if the chain on the slave could have SLIPPED one cog !!!

My Yamaha electronic bass pedel is not working. If I unplug the connection to the computer and plug it back in I will hear only 1 sound of the base drum. Could the base pedel round pad which is hit by the...

There is a piezo sensor behind the pad typically. This can be dislodged or damaged. FIRST check your cables and try plugging the bass into another inout and see if it will trigger that sound. If not, you will need to repair the bass pedal.

SOME pedals have a sensitivity control which is a tiny pot accessable through a hole... this too is easily damaged if wrong type screwdriver is used to adjust it.

be sure and check for a broken cable, especially near the ends.

When i strike the Bass Drum pedal, i sometimes get a cymbal noise also coming out of the kit. Its not the crash or ride cymbal i can hear, as when i look at the display, i can see a little bar to the right...

First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.

If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.

Dd 55 drum machine bass pedal has stopped working any ideas please.

MOST of these use a piezo disc pickup.

Other than replacement, first try to open the case and see if the disc has been knocked loose.

DO verify that the other one with the set will trigger the bass when plugged into the bass input... they are compatible triggering wise.

Frankly, these "pedals" are really hokey... could prpbably use one from a fancier drum set with a true pedal.
