Default what to get? pedals? cymbals? snare?

so guitar center is having a 15% off one item deal, and i'm considering getting some double pedals, or cymbals.

http://gc.guitarcenter.com/locations...010_ONLINE.pdf

thats the catalog on items in my area, a new drumset is out of the question because i just bought mine a little over half a year ago.

i've got my feet on a few of these pedals and they're all fantastic on my feet.
demon drives - love them!
DW 9000's - love them
DW 5000 - love them too
IC's - a little heavy, but great none the less.

the cymbals, im pretty satisfied with my B8 pro's and my Zildjians

im wondering if i'm calculating these prices right.. my results are coming out less than 50% the original.

i dont really understand how ure getting 50% less? i thought it was 15% off?

anyway, personally, id upgrade to professional cymbals first unless your pedal is unplayable, but thats just me

otherwise, dw9000's^^

+1 here. Is your pedal reliably hitting the bass drum? Then heave those B8s and move on up.

You don't realize how much better new cymbals are until you really get into them...but these guys are right...once you move on from B8s, etc, you can't go back. It's amazing the difference.

However, my recommendation to you is that you look on eBay and Craig's List. 15% off Guitar Center prices is nothing compared to the deals you can find there. You should be able to get professional cymbals AND a good pro-level pedal for what you are looking to pay for one or the other at Guitar Center, even with the 15% off!

alright thanks everyone, now hopefully i can get something today.. doubt it.

my pedal is not the best, the spring is terrible, and theres a lot of sway but i'll make do. but the way my parents are they probably wont let me get anything til next year, or christmas,

but thanks for the advice anyways incase i do get something.

.85 x price = the price with 15% off.

.15 x price = the amount you save

Looking at that list, it appears that selected items (the ones highlighted in grey) are at least 50% off the marked price. Clearly it's an all out assualt to clear the shop floor of unwanted inventory. Sadly. I saw none of the items you've mentioned included.

Guitar center doesn't sell stuff for list anyway, it's always lower. So even though you're saving 15% off list, it might as well be regular price, made to look like you're saving money.

Maybe.
