Nylon Strap or Chain Drive Pedal?


New member
Hey Gang. :eek:

I bought a new DW 9002 double bass drum pedal with the double link chain on each pedal. Nylon straps were included per pedal inbox also. & I see my fave (technically great) players like Dave Weckl, Thomas Lang, Horacio Hernandez, Steve Gadd, etc. play with a Nylon strap.

Tho', I've always used chain drive, I'm tempted to swap out the chains 4 the Nylon straps. I also use the hard plastic side of the beaters, not the felt side. Any input or experience with these? :idea:
