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?
