Default Re: Gibraltar beater on speed cobra pedal

Hey there,

I tried these beaters out on my Speedcobra double and I actually had a couple issues.
The first of which was that due to the cylindrical shape of the beater (along with the unyielding material that it's made of), I noticed that dents started appearing in my bass head pretty damn quick, even with a kick pad.

Secondly, when I finally switched these out for the wooden Iron Cobra beaters, I noticed that the metal rod connecting the beater to the pedal actually was bent considerably. Interestingly enough, this was actually on my slave pedal's beater. This was probably just a lemon that slipped through the cracks though.

Cheers!
