Re: Gibraltar beater on speed cobra pedal
Yamaha has a wood beater that's actually pretty light, it's actually lighter than the felt IC beaters that I have as well.
I prefer felt beaters most of the time. I like the punch of the ICs, but they're just a bit too heavy sometimes. I use those Yamaha round felt beaters most of the time, nice fat tone and they're very light. I can keep the spring tension medium and rebound is still very quick.
