I currently have a RB1 set that I got way back when it originally came out, but I've been considering getting a new set so that I can start playing pro drums on RB3. I figure that if I'm going to get a new set, I might as well splurge a little and get an ION set for myself.

My hangup is this: After my original RB1 drum pedal broke I bought two of these pedals, which also came with a double-bass adapter. I really like the feel of the double-bass setup, and I really like the pedals themselves. I don't want to lose the ability to use these.

In looking at the specs for the ION set, it appears that they use 1/4" cables/connectors for the pads and the pedal. Is this correct? If so, would it be possible to use my current double-bass adapter and pedals with an ION set if I pick up an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter? I'm mostly concerned that the adapter won't work, though I also don't know if the pedals would even work on their own either.


It does work with an adapter but the build quality on that pedal will feel disappointing once you have the all metal to compare it to. :)

  • Thanks. I'm sure the ION pedal is nice - and I may really like it once I try it - but it's also good to know that I can continue using my current pedals if I want to. – eldarerathis Jan 17 '11 at 0:15
