Default Steve Gadd Pedal

I noticed he has an older version of the FP-7210, the FP-810 or something like that. Are they good? Does anyone have any experience with them?

All Yamaha pedals work great.

Are they quiet? I have a Tama pedal the HP-200TW and I hate the feel. It feels too heavy for me.

Yes, Yamaha pedals are very quiet. I personally think they have a lighter feel than the Tama's, atleast the IC's.

Are you planning on scoring a "Steve Gadd" model off eBay? You can get into older Yamaha pedals, $25-35, usually. Tama, Yamaha and Pearl all copied the Camco, to greater and lesser extents. Why not? Great pedal. Check out "any" pedal, if you can, before you buy it. One persons "feels good to me" can be anither persons "this pedal feels like crap". I play the Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct Drive myself. Put it up against all the usual suspects when I went pedal shopping, and it won my money.

True, but I want a cheap pedal that would work good, and I'm guessing that Yamaha is the best option here. I think I'm going to buy a cheap old pedal? or maybe a fp7210, or if i have more money the direct drive

The Yamaha FP-7210 is a really good pedal "for the money". Check it out first, before you buy. It may be too similiar to the Tama you're trying to get away from. I played a Tama Iron Cobra Jr. just the other day, on a buddies kit, and was quite suprised by how "good" it felt. Being I wasn't so impressed with the Tama IC. But even the IC's, I'm sure I "could" get to work for me, especially if I switched out the stock beaters for larger felt ones. You might think to get into a used DW 5000, for that matter.

I have a Yamaha single-chain drive pedal from my first kit in 1994, that I still use today. It has stood up pretty well to my "rabbit" foot. It has terrific feel and action.

It's showing some wear though so eventually I might get a newer Yamaha pedal.

I heard Dave Weckl still has his older pedals in use.. I believe the older models he has are very similar to the one I have.

So I guess all Yamahas are going to work good?

Let's say "most" all Yamaha pedals are going to work good. When shopping off the "used" rack, condition is gonna play an important part. Always a good idea to clean, inspect and lube any used pedal you buy. They are not "maintenance free" items, though many drummers treat them as such.

Ah Bernhard, the long lost cousin of Steve Gadd :)

If you notice, only his hi-hat stand is the DW! Im sure you were being sarcastic though ;)

His double-bass pedal is the same model as the one I have from a while ago! Except I have only a single pedal variation. Excellent pedals!
