Re: New pedals - any recommendations?
Save up then go to the nearest drum shop and spend a decent amount of time with all of your options. The last 2 pedals I bought mostly from impressions I read online (of course I had a go on them too) and neither of them were 100% right for me. I just sold off a demon drive and I've got a dw9000 coming, but I wasted time playing a pedal that didn't suit me when I should have just gone into a store and outstayed my welcome trying stuff until I was sure about what suited me.
I agree with Dre25
