It's coming together far faster than I thought it would and all the design side is worked out, I just have to finnish it and fine tune it. My real concern is is it playable! I'm a little worried that the pedal won't have a natural bounce to it like a bass drum pedal has and will make it hard to keep in time. The only way to find out is to put it together and find out! I think it will look less like a stick leaning against a hi hat once the bottle caps are fitted...and no it won't make much noise standing on grass!
