Seems like a lot of people have one double kick and a single IC... Is that because they're expensive or what? I love the feel of ICs as much as I've played them and I prefer it to the feel of eliminators (even tho ive barely played em) but they're both quite expensive.

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?


Pearl sells a PX85 accessory that mounts on your slave and stops it from sliding:

I swear by the Tama Iron Cobras. I have a single that Ive been using for 4 years, or so, and just picked up a double. I have to say that I really like the DW 9000s too though. I played a single in the studio and it was awesome. Havent had a chance to get on a double though. A little beyond my budget.
