Re: I think it's about time for a new pedal...
I play the 5000. It is nice, but not quite as fast as some of the others. It is the most powerful pedal I have played. I am not much of a fan of iron cobras but you will have to try them out for yourself. I love the speed cobra. It is one of my favorite pedals I have played on. The only downside is less power than the others. The pearl eliminators are nice also. It really is mostly about you and what you want. Don't go and look at specific name brands. Try all of the pedals you can. You should also look for those big deals at guitar center. I got my 5000 for $100 new. Check them all out. You should find one that fits your playing and price range.
