Default Lefty Double Bass Pedal

Anyone have any suggestions for a double pedal that won't break the bank, but is still pretty decent? It has to be available as a lefty.

A lot of pedals can be reversed to lefty. I had an Iron Cobra Jr. (HP200) It turned around lefty pretty easy. I think they are under $200. I used mine for 7 yr. it was a good pedal. I'm using a Speed Cobra now. It reversed quite easy also, but it's pricey.

Pearl makes the equally cool P-932L double pedal set. I think you can get those new at $189. I had one - very smooth and pretty strong. I recommend that pedal to everyone.

I've seen used Demon Drives going for 250. Those convert quickly (I think I've done it in under 5 minutes) from righty to lefty to two singles.

I have the Lefty Mapex Raptor Direct Drive Double Bass Pedal. Though I don't use it as much as you may, I find it smooth and responsive. I've heard some bad reviews on the direct drive system but it has served me well for two years with no signs of problems.

Depends on what you consider breaking the bank. My Iron Cobra 900 series pedals cost me $329 brand new from eBay. To me that's upper end but somewhat reasonable and they are great pedals. I've also seen Speed Cobra doubles for the same price from time to time but you have to really watch for them.

Lefty Doug: That's a great buy. I think I paid 400 for my S.C.'s and that was a good price.
