You want a pedal with two springs? ehh... I don't know of any w/o looking it up.

Why don't you just go out and test the most popular pedals?

Here's the usual suspects.

Tama Iron Cobra http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=440059
Pearl Demon Drive http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=580561
Pearl Powershifter http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=448278
DW 9000 http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=443251
DW 5000 http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=443255
AXIS Longboard http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...dal?sku=446355

All of these pedals can be found a GC or Sam Ash... If you're looking for a heavy&smooth feeling go for DW
Intermediate weight with variations in smoothness go for the Powershifter or Iron Cobra
Wanna go lightweight and fast? Go for a Demon Drive or Axis

Best thing you can do is just test em all out, see what feels right for you.

Recently I am becoming quite privy to the Demon drive I don't own one though.

It would help if you included your budget. Two springs???? Which tama pedal do you have now and why are you wanting to change or what are you hoping to gain from a different pedal?

In all honesty there are a ton of really good pedals out there from Yamaha, DW, Tama, pearl, Axis, trick just a matter of which one feels best to you and no one can tell you that, you really need to get to a store and try them out. If you are looking to save a little find the pedal you really like then hit e-bay or craigslist to find a used one.

you're all right. I need to simply try some pedals out. If there is pedal that your really into, let me so i can keep an eye out for it. I have not tried a lot of pedals but what i "think" i like is something with some quickness. I play funk and i like the pedal to stick to my foot.
