If you would search, you'd find that everyone of these threads gets the same answer:

Go to a store and try them all! Everyone has different styles and needs and there are a variety of pedals out there to accommodate this.

Some swear by Pearl, others Mapex, others Trick, etc...


Don't let someone else choose what YOU like..

Good Answer!!! Only you will know what you like, and what will fit in the space next to your high hat.

Check with some people who have played them as to the durability of the power shifter... The plastic parts may let you down..

Sorry for bringing this Thread back from the dead, but I have a p900 single pedal. It was quite nice, I can't think of anything that was wrong with it. I really liked it, and I used it a good eight months before I got my trick pro 1-V double pedals

Pearl Eliminators, look for used ones. Great all round pedal and lots of options to make them feel the best for you. They are IMO for the money the best double pedal on the market.

the pearl p900 double is $120, and its one of my favorite pedals. To me its loads better than the eliminators, used those for 8 months, still never feel right to me.

I have been using a Dixon double chain drive double pedal for almost 14 years now with no problems or repairs, still have the original repair kit for it but haven't used it yet.
