Last Friday I got home from work and played a few songs on Rock Band. Right as we were finishing up the rock star ending on a song, the foot pedal on my drum kit broke in half. It was a sad, sad day.
Over the weekend I made a half-assed attempt at finding a replacement drum kit. When that didn't work I resorted to the answer to most every problem… eBay. Within minutes I found a repair kit for the foot pedal. As it turns out, I'm not the only one who has broken their foot pedal. OK, I knew I wasn't the only one. I saw postings about broken drum kits within the first week of Rock Band's release. Honestly, I'm surprised mine lasted as long as it did.
So, here's some before and after shots of the food pedal:
Broken in half.
Replacement parts to the rescue.
Take the foot pedal apart.
9 screws later, we are ready to rock.
Thanks to eBay seller rasehead for an excellent product that's priced right! Twenty Six bucks including shipping and I'm back to rocking my face off. Woo Hoo!
