    Lately, Jaska was wondering wether to get another bass drum or to stick with his double-bass pedal. Now he's with two bass drums.

    I think it's quite cool because there'll be nothing restraining him anymore. Two bass drums does not only look cooler and bigger (in metal music, the size of the drumkit seems to be an important thing (???)) but with two single bass drum pedals instead there is no more resistance and he'll be much more free. Great improvement IMO ! By the way, sorry if this has been discussed before.

    ^I wouldn't get so hyped on that, cos the american tour seems to be suporting LOG, and then maybe he'll have to return to 1 single bass drum (if LOGs setup is there the whole night I don't think Jaska will be given space to place there a huge drumset with two bass drums) like he's been doing on the other tours. I hope he doesn't though, it does look great with 2 bass drums. Actually I think Jaska's drumset (with both 1 or 2 bass drums) is my favourite drumset, at least if we talk about looks.

    Stereo in the way of putting right bass drum on the right and left on the left? IMO that'd be stupid, double bass fast kicks would sound awful, specially through headphones :erk:

    ^haha so true.
    Double kicks aren't panned. They're in the center usually. It would indeed sound awful to hear one kick left and one kick right :p Just imagine if you happen to listen to the songs mono.....yeah you would hear only half of the kicks haha would be odd

    I saw Bodom a few years ago with Amon Amarth and Trivium.

    Was in a small club and jammed packed and hot as fuck in there even though it was like 20 degrees outside. :lol:

    ^I supose because he'd say it for the same reason I wrote: if they're going on tour supporting LOG in their american tour, then he probably won't be allowed to have 2 bass drums.
