Default Help I need a new drum pedal!

I was thinkin maybe a used dw 5000 on craigslist for $85 or a pearl p120p for $50 bucks. I want to stay under 100 bucks and used is fine as long as it works. Please comment or reccomend. I want something super smooth, and fast.

^^^ Second. In fact, if I find out that your CL is close to my location, I'll snatch the 5000 out from under you!

Agreed. I own two DW5000s and have played them for 16 years. You can't go wrong with them. There are fancier pedals out there, but none that are a better deal for the money. They're indestructible, reliable and easy to play.

Darn. I scoured all the local Craigslist sites, and none of them are offering a 5000 kick pedal. Guess you're safe from me.

Seriously, though, I just went in to a store to try to trade an older Iron Cobra double pedal for a new DW5000 single... and the store wouldn't let me do a straight trade. Thus, I'm still really jonesing for that pedal. It's a great buy. Just make sure that the chain sprocket is straight and not bent- that's the only issue I've ever seen with them.

Hi!

I'm looking for a new single pedal, because the one I'm currently using does... "stuttering(?)".

I'm looking for something with a tight, heavy feel (I hate pedals with "too light" feeling), but still with very good response and speed (not speed metal, or anything!!!).
I simply like the feeling that there is a pedal under my feet, like its "glued to my shoe", but the pedal still does what I want, when I want.

So far, I'm considering 3 models, but I'm open for any helpful suggestions!
- Yamaha FP 9315 (or 9500) chain or direct drive, don't know yet
- DW 8000 or 5000 (accelerator or turbo, don't know yet)
- Pearl Eliminator

I'd love to go to a Guitar Center and try them out, but I reside in Hungary, where we have only limited options (a few types of Gibraltar, IC, Pearl, but no DW or Yamaha). Luckily, my friend is visiting his uncle in the States, so he'd get me one I want. Budget is around 200 dollars.

Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks in advance!
Matthew
