Default Learning Double Pedal

Hey, so I've never owned a double pedal before, however, I've played friends' ones and I'm alright at it. Finally i want to buy my own. However, i have to keep it on a REALLY low budget. So i definitely have to buy it used. I personally have found amazing deals on cymbals on guitar centers online used section. I'm think there may also be some good deals on pedals in there. Do I need to start out with a nice one to get good at it? or not.. thanks

Firstly you need to go to a store and try a bunch of different ones to see which ones feel best to you then start looking in the used market. Craigslist, e-bay all have some great deals you just have to be patient and look.

Maybe for you that's the pedal maybe for the OP it's not that's why he needs to go try as many as possible!

you don't necessarily NEED a good pedal to get the technique right but it certainly helps. A good pedal will be smoother or faster and easier to use and get used to. Having said that, if you learn to play quickly or efficiently on a bad or semi-decent pedal then it may be even better on a good pedal.

get a used DW 4000 or 7000 series if you can. Generally, DW pedals are very good.

I bought Pearl Elim. double pedal off ebay to learn on, because they have the different cams for different feels, not knowing for sure what I may/may not like. they have worked great for me and I enjoy playing the single pedal more than any of my others as well. many of the double pedals won't let you use as singles.
I got this pedal, with case, drum keys, bd practice pad and extra springs for about as much as the new "economical" models cost and am very happy I went used.

I have a Vex myself and aside from the fact that the footboards are kinda small I like it a lot. Pulled off the third spring and it feels great.
