Re: which kick pedal to buy?
Try before you buy is the best advice I can give. That and stretch your budget as far as you can.
Buying something extremely cheap might cramp you up in the long run (though there's a view that they'll help you play better on better pedals :/), while buying something in the intermediate to professional range will give you more space to grow.
Depending on your budget, there are tonnes of options from Pearl, Tama, Mapex, Taye, Axis, Trick, DDrum, etc.
