Default Double Bass pedal beaters

My son has a Pacific double bass pedal and his beaters are shot.

I'm putting together a Box 'o drum stuff as a Christmas gift and thought i'd throw a couple of new beaters in there.

Any suggestions? His band plays Alternative Rock with some Metal thrown in.

Thanks

In my limited experience., get the Pearl quad-beater. It's got two felt and two plastic sides. One of each is curved for more attack, great for louder music.

Another option is the Mapex tri-beater. It has one side felt, one side plastic and one side wood. But it is a little heavy on top though.

Happy shopping!

The Gibraltar beaters are pretty good and probably pretty affordable.

Thanks for the replies.

Have an idea...would the Gilbraltar wood beaters with an Aquarian double kick pad be a good idea?

If going for wood beaters, then yes, the impact pad is wise. It wil give you more lifetime from the head, and increase attack. For his style of music, that's perfect.
