Tama Iron Cobra, definately the only pedal I've found that holds up under me. And the adjustability and fluidness of the pedal is sweet. The DW 5000's are nice, I've had them, but not as adjustable as the Cobra, and don't hold up as well under extreme playing conditions. Thats my $.2

I like my DW 4000 dbl bass but if I could find 1 that let me play faster I would go for it. I hear axis are fast but that since they are made of aluminum they strip easy

drumming on a budget so i use a mapex double pedal which works just fine
not noisy and has a good balance of value and quality

i like the accelerator pedals and the iron cobras

also have a single yamaha pedal which came with my kit
basic but does a sturdy job

i have an iron cobra and it is really great but the feedback response is to much, and i have played with my buddy's dw 5000 and you really have to work to play quick :x :x as well i also had the convience to play with an axis for couple of weeks and they only have one setting to adjust and thier is to many kinks the need to work out . my buddy from once nothing let me try his pearl powershifter eliminator, not the chain but the interchageable cam system with belt and i have to say that is the best pedal i have every played on :D

NorCalDrummer wrote:pearl eliminator double pedal (blue cam) ... I feel like the power is definately there when I need it, but at the same time it's delicate enough to play ppp when needed as well. it feels great in my full dynamic range!

I also really love the DW 5000 single, but I can't find a the feel i like in the 9000... i just can't use it. I feels like i'm playing a feather.


dude,totally the pearl elimator is awesome, if you can get the settings just right. It's amazing sensitive with the blue cams, but with still a lot of power. Only problem i have with it is that the slave pedal slides all over the place, it's very frustrating, because my music demands a solid double kick so my hands are free to do what i want. Any help here? I was thinking of slapping some velcro on the bottom?

I use the Powershifter Eliminator double as well. It is not as heavy duty as the DW 5000's I have had, but I have had much more luck dialing the Pearl in to where I like it. It is a very adjustable pedal and lets you accomodate for a weaker left foot (which is good since I have little practice time anymore, lol!). I also have issue with the slave pedal sliding. I covered the entire bottom of the pedal with industrial grade velcro, which worked great until I wore out my drum carpet. The new one is too smooth, so I am having sliding issues again. I think I may sew some velcro strips into the carpet, unless anyone has a better idea.

speed kings are classically great..

the iron cobra is the one i use, because i was on a quest to find a pedal that will not break on me...i've been through many pedals...the iron cobra has held up strong so far!

Never played an Axis, but I own a DW, Pearl, and an Iron Cobra; I prefer the Cobras out of the three.
