I really like my Pearl Eliminator single pedals that I use when using two kicks. I also like my Tama Iron Cobra double pedal. Don’t think I really have a “favorite” pedal.

ya, the 9000 is awesome, but look at the price tag for the single pedal: $299.00 from musicians friend.  im gonna need a miracle to come up with that kind of money.  I think they’re over priced

I was thinking about maybe buying the Mapex Falcon double pedal, but it is “first generation” and parts are very hard to come by, if not completely impossible.

I hear what you’re saying. The Falcon is a really good, solid bass drum pedal.

It is my first choice before any other pedal. It’s just to “new”.  I need something that I know is going to last, b/c $400 is quite a gamble.

I’ve wondered about the falcon too but I haven’t gotten a chance to mess around with one yet.

I’ve only found one shop that stocks it, and it is 4 hours from my home, so i don’t think I’ll be trying it out anytime soon. :(

Iron Cobra double on my single bass/ DW’s on my double basses

Up until the mid part of July, I had been using the DW 7000 double on my main kit and the Gibraltar Intruder double on my road kit. At one time I subbed for a couple of buddies of mine when they needed time off etc and one of them played a Trick double and the other one played Axis doubles.
So, mid July this year, I grabbed up the Pearl Demon double pedal and I was BLOWN AWAY~!  Man, these pedals are smooth as silk, fast as greased lightning and heavier built that the DWs.  It converted from the standard “Short Board” style to the “Long Board” style in not over 15 minutes, with the use of the Pearl Tool that comes with the pedals.  The Case for the Pedals is Excellent Luggage by any standard.  The many features and adjustments and parts availability make it a winner, IMO~

Until something better comes along…my favorite kick pedal is the Pearl Demon Double pedal~

oh yeah i’ve been wondering about the cobra coil.  does it really make that much better of a rebound time and give it a more solid feel?  i have some really crappy $30 pedal that i’ve been meaning to get rid of.  im thinking iron cobra or DW 5000, but since the DW is more expensive, and the iron cobra has the cobra coil, im leaning toward the iron cobra.  what do you think?

Just wondering — how many surfaces do you use on your 4-way beater, and how do you use them?
