Default Pedal Questions

Are Tama's/IC's heavier than the standard pedals? Or is it just me that thinks it's heavier.

What is the difference between double and single chain?

What is the point of toe stoppers?

Toe stoppers prevent yout foot from sliding to the top of the pedal and touching the strap or chain, making playing more difficult. The feel of a pedal is mainly a matter of spring tension, try to reduce the spring tension and see how that feels.
A double chain is more durable and stronger than a single one and can take more of a beating but I doubt the necessity of it.

1) ?

2) I think double -chain is just newer technology, and is stronger more light weight than single chain.

3) Toe stoppers are just that. Keep the foot from sliding into the chain or strap,.. specially all the heel-toers

Wouldn't two chains weigh more?

Yes, two chains weigh more, but it's so miniscule of a difference...not even noticable.

well, the foot plates look pretty damn beefy, im not sure if its the same on the standard tama pedals but i would think that would make it pretty heavy

not trying to be rude here, but i dont understand how these would make it more difficult to play. my 9000 pedals have toe stoppers and when i played with them off i didnt notice any difference. i just thought they saved your toes for the chain.

but i dont have my foot up that high anyway so thats probably why i didnt make a difference :)
