Will This Work For Amputee?

Hello, I lost my right leg in a motorcycle accident. I play drums using my left leg for the bass drum and I just lock the hi hat closed loosely. I invented a glove when I was playing an electric kit that allowed me to open and close the hats. Now I have an acoustic drum set so I am looking into the Aerodrums so that I can practice any time. So, is there a way to change the setting for the reflectors so thst I can assign the bass drum to my left leg and the hats to my right?
Thanks!

Hi, Aerodrums allows you to position the drums and pedals wherever you want them. It makes no distinction between left and right handed setups. In your case it will work fine to position everything as you would on a normal kit and then swap the location of the kick drum pedal and the hihat pedal. There is also a hihat drop clutch feature that will allow you to set the degree of openness of the hihat when not engaged using your foot.
