Default Anyone know what this pedal is?

It's old. It's cheap. It has no visible markings on it. It's beat up.

But it's one of my favorite pedals. If I knew what it was, I'd know what to look for to get another one.

I'd say it's your average cheap pedal, the ones that come with those First Act kits. Like this:

Ya - probably something like that. Without a name on it, I'll most likely never know.
I've got some more expensive pedals and some cheap, beat up ones, but there's something about this one that just works for me - go figure.

Yup, super generic beginner pedal that comes with various assorted beginner drum kits.

It actually figures quite easily I reckon mate. Nothing determines the effectiveness of a pedal more than comfort and "feel".

I say it all the time, pedals are like shoes. I'd much rather wear my tattered old Chuck Taylors than I would my expensive leather dress shoes. I can (and do) wear both......but the Converse just feel more comfortable. Pedals are no different......hence why my reply to all the "what's the best pedal?" threads is always the same. Get your feet on 'em and let the pedal tell you. For some people, a $50 pedal feels a hell of a lot better to them than a $650 pedal......and there ain't nothin' wrong with that.

Bwa ha ha - found it. http://www.interstatemusic.com/35114...dal-DP200.aspx

The $20 wonder, and they're still making it.

I've gone through at least a dozen pedals since I made this thread, and no longer have that pedal.
For 20 bucks, I probably should pick up another one and see how it feels to me now - ha ha.
