I have played and owned IC's, DW9000, Axis L2, and I currently use a Trick Pro 1 V double pedal.

For the money, DW9000s are by far the best value. They are ridgid, fast, and have plenty of adjustments for different feels.

Axis pedals are great if you are looking the Longboard route. I found that when I had the Axis set up they worked best as two single pedals on a double kick set up. I used Danmar wood beaters instead of the one's Axis provided. The Axis pedal didn't really make my bass technique any better or worse. I obviously had to get a feel for the difference of the pedal.

Trick pedals are overrated. I'm glad I only paid $550 on for the one's I currently have. I'm a gear junkie, and I got sucked into the hype. They look good and the pedals are large, but the price is what kills the overall value.

After trying quite a few pedals over the years, the only thing that's made my bass technique better and faster is practice.

I don't own it but tried it out, the Tama Speed Cobra I think is one of the top pedals to date. I've had owned DW, Axis, and Iron Cobra. I'm currently using a Pearl Eliminator.

The Tama Speed Cobra speaks for itself try it out!

not a fan of a double kick pedal, im more of a 2 bass drum kinda person, but the TAMA speed cobra or iron cobra i think is the way to go, they are pricey but the do the job very well.

Trick are expensive for a reason, quality and innovation. A solid pedal that can feel like any other competitors pedal. This is the only pedal with limitless adjustment on the market and ease of adjusting where u want it. Also the compression spring owns expansion springs anyday. If ur gonna cheap out jus play an iron cobra pg.

Over the last 15 years I used (and owned) a lot of pedals: Axis, DW 5000, Tama Iron Cobra, Sonor Giant Pedal, Yamaha (donīt remember the numbers). I felt fantastic with the most of these pedals but since december ī10 im playing the tama speed cobra double pedal. This is one hell of a bd pedal. The fastest ever (around 10% faster while playing to a click than before). Its so smooth and responsive. But be careful with your bd head. The bd beater in the default position kills your head. After the first week of playing with the speed cobra I killed my first bd head in years. Just turn the beater to the flat position, this is much more drum head friendly. :)

Test it before you buy another bd pedal.

IMO The Dualist looks like a joke to me, something almost gimicky..the off-center pedals are great in design.

What this decision is going to come down to, is YOU taking the plunge and going to a physical location, such as a store and trying out as many pedals as you can find..

For instance, I've got a set of Chain Pearl Eliminators...I love them, right out of the box they were better than any I had been on, and now, after all my fine tuning; they fit ME exactly.

The next guy will post that Tama's IC is the cat's meow, whereas I don't like them whatsoever.

It's all going to come down to how YOU and YOUR legs feel.


Good luck(all the big name pedals are more than adequate, be it Pearl, Yamaha, Gibralter, DW, etc)

Yo guys! A big hello from Sweden!

This is the first post here since years of surfing around as a "guest" , and I decided to write down some of my own experiences and such, and I cannot agree more with the guy I quoted above. It`s all about you and your feet!
Make sure to test all pedals that`s out there in your pricerange. Each and one of those pedals that`s available will be more or less closer to express your goal as a musician! It`s all about whats your way of tapping your foot.

I could talk forever witch pedal that "I" prefer but then again, to each "his/her" own.

Let your feet fly with beats that YOU decide on the one pedal that YOU decided you liked the most. Do not listen to gimmicks. There`s plenty of them out there just in marketingpurposes.

I agree with what's been said above...you have to get out and try different pedals to see what feels best to you. I use a DW9000 and have been very happy with it. It is adjustable in multiple ways so that you can position it so it is comfortable for you.

I bought a brand new DW-2000 double pedal. Only cost $160 brand new and it's just as good as any double pedal I've ever played in the $300-$400 range.

I've owned two Off set peds...the linkage on the drive shafts eventually became so loose that I sent them back...two times...none of the replacements ever kept their tightness...I eventually just threw them in a closet...I still have them...

but use the TRICK PRO 1V Big foots and Dominators...superior in every way..I use a weight sleeve on the beater....their drive shaft is tight tight tight...and has stayed that way for years...I've also gotten so used to them that I wouldn't play anything else...

I've played I.C./ DW's /Sonor's/Rogers swiv o matic (With the Black Jack Beater)/ Ludwigs...and early Camco's...TRICK does it for me cuz I hung in there and found the perfect setting for me...fast.

TAMA Iron Cobra Power Glide - by far the best I have ever played.

Second would be the Mapex Falcon.
Only used one once and it was in a shop, out of the box so wasn't set up for me but it was pretty damn smooth!

I use the Pearl Eliminator Powershifter pedals. They are awesome. Different cams for speed and smoothness. Adjustable foot boards... Just awesome. They are the best pedal Ive ever played, but to be honest, I haven't played any others - Apart from DDrums DXP pedal - now that is crap.

I have a Yamaha Direct drive double that's fairly smooth. It's from the series after the Flying Dragon models. 9410 I believe. It's very good for playing doubles with one foot, but it takes quite a bit of tweaking to set up the slave. once you do, You'll love it. I've had it for a about 2 years now with no major issues. I'd recommend buying a set of DW two-way beaters for it. The Yamaha felts are too flimsy. You really should go to a store with about $400-$500 in your pocket. that covers every major brand's price range. (Except Axis or Trick) and try out a lot of different pedals, Only you know what your preference is.


P.S. I totally agree with the above post about the Ludwig Speed King

I use a DW double bass drum 5000. Its sweet. Recently though, I took it apart and put half of it on my second bass drum so that I got two pedals out of it. Its a great pedal.

It's not really that expensive compared to other stuff on the market. I owe a chain one, I previously owned a cheaper Pearl double bass pedal which had a great set of bearings, and I can feel the difference. It also comes with the 4 cams, though I can only feel a big difference between the Red (my choice) and the others. The other parameters are quite customizable too, so you can set it up just the way you want.

Personally I didn't like the feel of the Axis or the Demon Drive (shaft drive? is that the correct term?), to me it feels like a chain drive or belt drive gets a better "flow" going (not sure how to explain it more technically)

Hi folks, dear drummerd99,

I started with a US-made DW 5002 Turbo some years ago (in the mid-90's). It was really a nice and reliable pedal with smooth action for about ten years. I found it to represent a great trade-off between power and speed, resulting from the lean design. The new DW3002 is quite the same pedal at a really reasonable price.

I've been playing a DW9002 for five years now. I really love the power and strength of the pedal, but is not making me a speed champion. IMHO, the DW9002 is rather for power play, when you need to deliver a serious kick signal. It is well-built, heavy and very reliable, although the quality is only 9 out of 10, I would say. It is very sensitive with a great feel, too, but not the fastest pedal I know. I love the adjustment features, in particular of the cam, but you can really overdo it and spent month with the setting.

I recently checked the topline Axis longboard double pedal, and that was an experience! I mean, they just go automatically. You basically need to look at them and they get off, and I was able to play really precise and fast. Besides the great manufacturing quality I think it is really a metal pedal, with not such a wide application range.

If you go to a store, you shouldn't miss Sonor's Giant Step Pedals. I know it is extremely expensive in the US, but it is in all disciplines state of the art. Sonor doesn't spread too much information about the features, but in terms of quality, versatility, durabilty etc. it is (one of) the best pedal(s) out there. If you have money left under the pillow, you'll need to check it out. I still stick to the DW9002 because the matching 9500 Hi-Hat is so great ;-) But that's another thread.

Hope it helps.

I've got both a Pearl Eliminator and a Mapex Falcon and I love them both. I do have a few issues with the Falcon... which mainly revolve around the fact that I'm quite a hard kicker and often my beater comes flying out of it's position during gigs, so I've moved onto the Eliminator live and it is a true beast! They're both fantastic pedals and choosing between the two is quite difficult.

I second that. My first and only pedal is a dw 2002 (new, 149 Euros/reduced price). I thought I'd begin with a starter pedal (1 year of drumming). I have tested different pedals in the medium class, including direct drive pedals. They all have their pros and cons but the dw 2002 can do about the same. Before buying this pedal I looked for the 'world's fastest pedal', but obviously, there are several of them, depending on different manufacturer/user statements. I might 'upgrade' to a more fancy pedal, but not before I acquire significantly better (double) bass drum skills which is more a matter of practice than buying this or that pedal.

One pedal hasn't been mentioned yet (at least in this thread) - the Czarcie Kopyto (Devil's Hoof) from Poland:
http://czarciekopyto.com/index.php?lang=en

This pedal seems to be built to an extremely hi-end design, using the best components available and incorporating decent technology. I considered this pedal when I was in the market for my 1st double pedal (I'd like to have another double pedal to have 2 practice setups in different rooms at my home) but bought the dw 2002 instead, as a starter. Unfortunately, the Czarcie Kopyto pedal is distributed directly so there's no way to test it beforehand. This pedal is used by drummers like those with INFERNO and DIMMU BORGIR so it should be up to 300 bpm ;-) My dw 2002 has no direct drive but can do 270 bpm (heel-toe).

Jakester - do you have any idea what you're talking about? The DW2002 is a low-end DW pedal. The 3000 (old 7000), 5000 and 9000 are all above the 2000 in the DW line-up. Sure, the 2002 is cheaper but that doesn't make it the 'best pedal'. It's not even a case of subjectivity; the DW2002 isn't as well made as the higher-end DW pedals.

I owned the DW 9002 for a while this year, ended up trading it for an IC +$150. Loved the action on the 9000 a lot, but the heel plate and hinge design is annoying and uncomfortabe for me. And the adjustments are not very easy to make. Its over engineered a bit. I found adjusting the slave pedal to match the master difficult as well.

The IC I think is a better value overall. Its got great action as well, very smooth and responsive. The adjustments are super easy to make. My only gripe is the heel plate is a bit bulky as well. The IC is $180 cheaper than the 9002.

Both pedals also have bulky cams which make it a bit uncomfortable to use the very top of the footboard. I like using every available inch of the footboard for heel toe.

I used the Yamaha felt beaters on both the 9000 and IC.

I have not owned the Pearl Eliminator or Mapex Falcon yet, but they are on my list. I really want to try the 8000 longboards as well, maybe they can be had at big discounts since the entire 8000 line has been discontinued.

Well, I think this kind of pedals are interesting. But i have to say: SONOR offers the middle pedal since some years now and you hardly ever see someone playing them!

I think this pedals have to much parts. Most drummers will have easy handling an less to carry

I have played just about every pedal out there and I LOVE my Eliminators.

I have the double chain double pedal and use the black cams with med-loose spring tension and the beaters about 4-5" back from the head. I like a heavier feel and I'm not a speed demon at all, I like to get a really good 'whollop' into the head.

I would highly recommend the DW 9000 pedal. I don't own one but one of my friend does. I played it and was just amazed by how smooth it was! I own a 5000 double pedal and the 9000 is a big step up from mine. And I love mine

Ive had tama, pearl and dw and when I bought my last one I didnt have the cash so I bought a Dixon double chain drive double pedal to get me by till I could afford another, well its been 10 years now, no problems with the Dixon and when I have thought about replacing it I havent noticed enough of a difference in the other pedals to make me want to spend that kind of cash and if something does happen to it I will probably just buy another Dixon.

Well, the answer is... there is no one best pedal. Honestly though I think most would say the Trick. I owned the Demon Drive and traded it for the Speed Cobras because I didnt like the Demon Drive. If all you want is speed though the Demon Drives WILL give you that. They are extremely smooth but way too light for me. I have heard that the Axis feel even lighter which is hard for me to believe. Flo Mounier and Joey Jordison both play Demon Drives, Chris Adler and tons of others play Tricks. You will ultimately have to go check them out and find the ones that feel best to you.

I am looking around now too. I "upgraded" to an Iron Cobra about two years ago: what a mistake! The build quality is poor, it squeaks no matter how much I grease it and it cost me 700 swiss francs. I bought a Pearl P122 for half the price to use on my practice kit at home and it is twice the pedal!!!
I am now looking at the eliminator or considering trying the demon. Pearl hardware just seems better quality (IMO!!)

I wouldn't usually get involved in this thread, but I have to say, don't discount the latest Yamaha 8500 & 9500 series pedals. Incredible value for money, super smooth, very well built, & options on chain or direct drive with different cam profile + longboard too. In the UK, they're Ģ250 (under $400 ish), & that's tremendous value. I have a DW500 set & the Yamaha's are better in every respect IMO.
