Default Beater Questions

Hep!
I thought of buying new beaters for my double bass pedal. Why? I own a Pearl Power Shifter and feel like the beater is heavy and slow. So, do you think it's a good idea to change my beaters or it's not useful? I would like to get some information on the kind of beaters that exist and their price. What do you think about them and wich one would you recommand me?

Seb

I replaced mine with IC beaters a while back. They are lighter and quicker. I had an IC single pedal so I just purchased 1 more for my second. I like the lighter feel of the IC beater over the Pearl beater.

Changing the beater can be as significant a sound change (and pedal feel) as changing bass drum heads. My preference is towards a hard felt beater (Yamaha), but I also own felt/plastic, felt/wood, solid wood, solid plastic and real soft (square) felt beaters.

Ok thanks.
I check on the web to find some and I found the axis beater wich I found really cool.

Do they fit on any pedal? Are they worth this amount?

I use them, they are top heavy beaters, they arent light like IC beaters, but they do let u adjust ur stroke distance, but be warned they are slightly shorter than other beaters as the extentions at the top is ment to make up for it :)
