Just about everyone makes a great pedal these days. Both that you mentioned are great pedals. Your best bet is to try them out and see which you like best.

Firstly, before anyone else scolds you: use the search function! Now, having got that out of the way, do not buy pedals based on who endorses them (Jordison is a Pearl artist for example). Buy a pedal based on feel and construction, and this is best determined using reviews by fellow drummers.

For instance, I have Iron Cobra and Pearl pedals, and I like both. But some people find the Elims more adjustable for example. It depends what you're looking for in a pedal.

I am using a TAYE XP-1 Pedal that I got from Justdrumsonline.com and I have to say it is fantastic. This pedal has so many adjustments that I had to reset it for daylight savings time. Try all of the major brands, and see which feels better for you. Just like cymbals you have to bang on a few and buy what your ear likes. Don't buy because your favorite drummer uses it, You are not him.

Just 2 days ago, after trying out DW 9000s, Iron Cobras,Yamaha Flying Dragons and Pearl Eliminators, I decided to go for the Direct Drive Flying Dragons. They are extremely adjustable and have a very responsive and, well, direct feel. And the Yamahas were cheaper by quite a way.

Just go with what feels best to you and dont be influenced by brand or endorsers.

Ha ha!! That's awesome. I was going to mention the XP1s but it would have sounded like a shameless plug. Yes - the Taye XP1 Pedals are second to none.

And if you do choose a pedal based off of a pro using it make sure you at least know what pedal he uses (Joey uses ICs I believe) ;)

Oh and I have both also and they are both very nice. I did end up going with the ICs as my mains though.

I read about it in wiki and I think he used to use IC's but now hes all pearl cuse hes got his own line of their stuff n such I could be wrong but he says (quote) "I use Pearl Eliminator pedals, and I swear by them." and I'm not basing my choice off of drummers I am just curious as to why so many of them use the eliminators but I bet I'll be satisfied with the IC's but since you have both can you tell me what separates the 2 from each other? like which one offers what and maybe the durability thx.

Out of personal preferance, i'de go with the Iron Cobra. Only bad thing about the cobra is after extreme usage it squeakes. But it's a very quiet sqeak and wont effect anything. The eleiminator is cool cause of all the differant add ons, chain or felt drives, and ect.

But what I like to do is do pedal combos. Like I put a iron cobra beater/hammer on a flying dragon before i baught my actual IC's.

But some good combos are:
Iron Cobra beater with Yamaha flying dragon
DW 9000 beater on Iron Cobra
Eliminator beater on DW 9000


But right now, I sold my iron cobras for Trick Pro 1-V Detonators. Much like the iron cobra, but faster.
