You can get Pearl P2002C for 250 bucks. Go for it! You can't spend 250$ in a better way.

It's durable, easy to adjust and really smooth. That's all a good pedal should be
dim my eyes if they should compromise

I personally love my Pearl Powershift Eliminator double pedal. It's smooth, it's durable, it has more excessories and options than any other pedal out there. If you want simple, go with something else. If you want a custom pedal that you basically put together ( not the manufacturing...duh) , then go with the Eliminators.

Or if you really want something sweet, go with Axis pedals...though they are 500 dollars for a double pedal..woot!

I use Axis pedals, but if I had to go with another brand, it'd be those Pearl Elim Powershifters- he's right about that- those are great!

The Tama iron cobras are great. I also give my props to Gibralter. They have some high quality, heavy duty stuff. Be ready to spend alittle $$$$ but it's worth it.

Iron Cobras blow they are the heaviest feeling pedals on the market.

Dw7002 or Powershifter Elims FTW!

Everyone is going to give you different advice dependent on THEIR preference. I don't know how many times it needs to be said really, but you need to go down to a drum store and you need to try for yourself.

Chances are that what feels right for one drummer, is not necessarily right for you.
