Thumbs up Fixed my Rock Band pedal for free using 16 gauge steel

My pedal broke a few months ago and I finally had a chance to fix it this weekend. Only took about an hour and a little metal fabrication but now it works great. I thought about painting it but right now it already matches the silver vertical bars on the drum set.

I just checked ebay for "rock band pedal fix" and it looks like there are already a lot of people doing exactly what I did. I never thought about looking on there. Thats fine because mine was free anyway. I could easily mass produce these but people already have them on there for a decent price.

I've always wondered if you can get two of the bass pedals and a mini-jack splitter and hook two up at once. that'd be kinda neat.

first, urs looks really good!!.... ok, after beating the ever-lovin piss out of the first bass pedal, it split in about the same spot as that one did, maybe alittle higher, so, i just took a some ceramic floor strip, and screwed that sob on there more times that i would have liked, and that lasted about a month, and the night before starting the ESL, the damn thing breaks right at the pivot, so i went and bought RB for a PS2 for 100$ at walmart. got all new stuff, and first thing i did was snap a damn crack in the new pedal the first night, so after an overlay of aluminium on the top, and one half-way up on the bottom, its better than ever and i can beat the hell out of it, with no worries. BTW, a headset splitter and 2 pedals works just fine, costs me 1.88 from radio shack and im double bassin away.granted its kinda all bunched together but thats life.
