Continued from part 2
6. Reassemble the axle with everything reversed. All the stuff on the left should now be on the right, etc. The chain or strap should now be facing your foot instead of away.
7. Reattach the elbow linkage. Here's how your reversed pedal should now look.
8. Attach something soft to your beater head. (sheepskin, felt, rubber, an old sock) I used some foam pipe insulation and a wire tie.
9. Attach your mounting bracket to your cajon in the desired location. My mounting bracket is a piece of 1/8" steel 2"x6" with holes drilled for attachment. Be careful when drilling into your cajon! Check the inside to avoid damaging internal moving parts or supports.
10. Optional: remove the extra pedal and beater from the slave pedal. This makes the whole thing lighter and gives you some spare parts.
11. You're done! Attach pedal to cajon and get down with your bad self.
Thanks for checking out this blog! Best of luck making your own cajon pedal. Meanwhile, stay tuned for my cajon shootout video where I compare and contrast a bevy of boxes. Aloha!
