Default good beginner double bass

hey all, ive been drumming for a little over a year, and would like to get a double bass pedal to fill cool and extreme. but no, i am looking for a nice beginner pedal that is not too expensive, but will be responsive and sturdy.

ive noticed that "vex touring" double bass is cheap and good reviews, as well as some others. ill buy used or new. i just dont want a pos, but i dont wanna spend a ridiculous amount (about 170ish). any inputu would be appreciated. thanks

You gotta try them out. No one can pick a pedal for you. It's all personal feel, after checking though, I'd go used. I've seen DW 5000s for about that, and they're amazing pedals. But again, that's what I play and what I like.

As said, it's about how you feel. Also, what is your price range? I loved my DW's as beginner pedals.

I have a Pearl 902 that I really like. I was going to go for the DW 3000 but a little on the heavy side for me and I didn't like the connecting rod as much as the Pearl, also the pearl was on sale, but as said it will be up to you to find what fits your preference. A word on buying used, check them out throughly all the bolts Allen screws check for foot board wear because you don't want to buy someone else's problem.

DW 3000's will probably be your best bet, but you should try them out before buying.
