Default help with a new double bass

i am in need of another double bass pedal, just a cheap one, but one that wont fall apart on me.

i wish to keep my other double pedal on my premier, to save time taking it off when it needs to be put on my new mapex.

any suggestions?

Gibraltar, sonor, pearl. All have somewhat cheap and functional pedals.

In all seriousness how much time does it really take to remove a bass pedal, minute at most?
I'd save the cash toward something else myself or save a little more and invest in a decent pedal. One thing I've never understood is drummers will invest hundreds or thousands of dollars on nice drums but have this need to skimp on hardware especially the one piece that gets used the most and usually the hardest the bass pedal. Buy inexpensive and by the time you do your next upgrade you will have spent more than just buying a good pedal to start with.

I agree whole-heartedly.

~BUT~

Buying the "right" thing is purely based on inteded purpose, finacial strength, and availability. There is a balance for most (if not all) of us. I can't spring unlimited amounts of $$$ on the best equipment; all the time. Although it is very true that if you buy crap...don't expect it to last and don't cry when it breaks. The real struggle is finding when and where to draw the line in "spending vs. what you want vs. what you need."

such as life.

Ofcourse having an additional pedal, same as your primary, would also serve as a backup. Definately a valid justification.
