Default DW 5000 Accelerator vs. Tama Speed Cobra

Which is better? Smoothness, durability, speed, control etc.... Both are the same price

Can you get your foot on both of them at the same time to do a test? Nothing we say can answer which one you'd like better.

I have tried the DW before, but not the Speed Cobra. The Guitar Center that I go to never has it.

I say pedals are like shoes. Buy what your foot likes. If you're brave, go ahead and buy the Speed Cobra and maybe you can return it if you don't like it. But if you tried the DW already and like it, that's what I'd go with.

I played DW5000's and 9000's for quite a while. I did see the Speed cobra at my Guitar Center and had to try it out (without doing any adjusting to it), and the neat thing if you have big feet is that the Speed Cobra has a longer pedal plate, but I can't say it felt incredibly different from any other pedal I've played.

But I've been rockin' on my Tama Iron Cobra Jr. pedal for the last couple of years and my foot just likes it better than more expensive pedals.

Thanks for your quick response. I am going to GC tomorrow morning to check it out.
