Re: Admire my shiny pedals
Yeah I think so. They feel alot heavier without shoes, which I did consider but wow, big difference. The heavy dw beaters get such an awesome thump but you really pay for it with your speed. Anyway, the pearl beaters have fixed that I think.
It's hard to describe how they're different to the falcons but they are very different. I have grown to love the falcons but long boards (or long-er boards as falcons are) are great for double pedal playing but maybe not as good for single pedal pedal stuff. Ex: single foot doubles are a little more difficult, at least for me. And you'll find that coming into play with quick syncopated patterns too.
I cut my teeth on an iron cobra and the 9000 in my opinion is the next step in the evolution for me.
