I owned a Double-Bass kit back another lifetime ago.

If you have it, you'll find a way to use it. It could be useful to you; it was for me. Although I never kept careful track, I only played the second Bass part of the time.

I would, however, straddle my foot over the Hat pedal and Bass pedal simultaneously with the ball and toes of the left foot on the Hat foot-board and the heel playing the Bass. Being younger and far less arthritic, I could play that way.

I learned from having the gear that playing a Hat in various ways turned out to be way more important to me than trying to roll on the Bass ... but that is useful, too. I couldn't have found that out without having a Double-Bass kit for an extended period.

You might want to purchase a Double-pedal from a reputable store which will allow returns. Trouble with that is, they'd usually give 'store credit' where you can apply the purchase price to some other equal-value goods. I bring it up because I'd hate to see you drop a significant amount on a Double-Pedal and only come to a final conclusion that it's not really 'your thing' and be out any significant amount. Carefully check the store's time limit if you chance that approach ( and remember, the gear has to be in their hands before the drop-dead date and hour).
