double bass pedals


I am wanting to upgrade my kick pedal, and I figured I might as well go with a double instead of buying twice. I recently upgraded my hi hat, and went with a pdp hh820 2-legger with the same idea in mind. Most of my hardware has already been changed out to pacific, and I am pleased with all of it so far! There are not many choices in my price range with the features I want---full baseplates on both pedals, double chain drive, and offset cams---pdp 502 is the only new pedal I have found so far! I am not a pro drummer, and don't want to spend a bunch of money!! I am also unsure about buying used and inheriting someone else's problems! Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: double bass pedals


I'd buy used. It's not like buying a car. Drummers either trade up and need to get rid of the old gear, or they run short of cash and try and sell whatever they can do without. And sometimes we buy something and realize later it's not quite what we wanted. So I wouldn't worry that the used pedal is defective. Just try it out before you hand over the cash. You can't go wrong with almost any pedal because it's going to take you months to become proficient with it. If it's not the fastest thing on the market then it'll make you work harder and when you can afford the best, you'll have stronger muscles!

agreed, though I have nothing against used cars.

Re: double bass pedals


I have been trying out new and used pedals for months, and last weekend I picked up a brand new Pearl P902 Powershifter on sale for a great price---set it up on the bench in about 10 minutes, and I am very impressed with how solid it is, and how hard it hits! I recommend this for anyone looking to get their first double pedal

Re: double bass pedals


I looked at, and tested several used Iron cobra pedals, as well as anything else I could get my feet on and they all had squeaks, creaks, rust, and rattles---I finally decided not to deal with someone else's headaches and bought the new pearls! They are solidly built, smooth as butter, and much faster than any of the used ones I tried

Re: double bass pedals


I've been playing the Pearls for a year and a half now, and I love them so much that I bought the single version for my practice kit! Last month I had a guest drummer who brought his Iron Cobras, and when he played my Pearls he never set them up!

Lol, nuff said there! I owned an Iron Cobra and I tinkered with it for a very long time trying to get them right and I gave up and sold it. Best thing I ever did.
