Re: Yamaha pedals?
I play the 9500D and like it a lot. I find it very light in feel and very responsive.
But it seems to be one of the most polarizing pedals there is when other drummers play mine. I have one student who SWEARS my Pearl Power Shifter Eliminator feels lighter to him. (Totally the opposite of the way I would describe them.) And I have had drummers at open mic nights play my kit and have a lot of trouble controlling it. They either love it or hate it. No middle ground.
Like I said, I love the 9500D, but it seems to be a quirky beast to the unaccustomed foot.
