Drumset Ergonomics – Part 3: Pedal Placement

In Part 2 of this series, we discussed the importance of setting your throne height to a position that will be optimal for your body to be comfortable and strong for a lifetime of playing. This time we’re going to focus on pedal placement. The choices we make when positioning our pedals on the floor have a huge impact on how balanced we feel on the throne, and our balance will determine how efficiently we can use the pedals. A lack of balance and symmetry can also cause unnecessary stress on joints and tissues, which could lead to issues in the future.
