So I talked to my drum teacher about a double pedal and he said he can order me a Trick for 700. I told I'm I'd think about it as I like the idea of the IC a lil better. and so I go talk to my dad about this (the scourage of my drum funds). And he asked how much the pedals where so I told him the IC's runn about 340 and the Trick pedals are 700. He looked at me like I was crazy. then I tried to explain to him the difference between the 2 and he didnt get it at all. (as usual) his reaction is do you REALLY need a double pedal? It drives me insane anytime I want to get something for my drumset he's always like do you really need it? which I could understand cause half the time he'd be paying for it. but now that I have my own job and I'm making my own money he's even worse about it. he thought my saludas were rediculously expensive. (they were 86 bucks!!) wait till he heres I'm thinkn of buying a 7 peice Medicine Man kit!

After playing Mike's I would say go for the Trick. After that the 9000's , what can I say, I'm old school.

Every pedal on his list is capable of being faster than he'll ever go, plus the pedal doesn't make you fast... PRACTICE makes you fast.

For me the biggest difference is how well constructed the pedal is! Would you rather have a 400 or 500 dollar pedal that breaks occasionally or a 700 dollar pedal that is so well engineered that it will probably NEVER fail!

If you don't have the money to do it right, where will you find the money to do it AGAIN, when it fails?

The Sam Ash in my area has a Trick single.

I felt that I didn't have enough skill to try it out :oops:

I've played some IC's before, granted they were someone else's, but I didn't like them.

They felt about the same as my DW4000s, i.e. not spectacular.

Yes but I've tried the rolling glides and I love them.
