Re: which kick pedal to buy?
A pedal is like a pair of shoes sometimes.
What type of pedals have you used before?
Do you like direct drive or chain drive, or it does not matter for you?
Do you have large feet or small feet?
Heel up or Heel down?
You can go to the local store and just check out a few pedals they have on display. See what feels right, Check out their prices and see if you can pick them up cheaper if you purchase them used.
I am not here just to keep the beat; I add color, timbre, and presence.
