Another thought: it took me a Long time to figure out - I am a Direct Drive guy, not a Chain guy. It really changes the feel of the pedal. Will never, ever, Ever play another chain pedal.
Lots and lots and lots. I just don't keep them.In my case, four so far: A Pearl Eliminator, a Trick Dominator, a Mapex Falcon and a Trick Bigfoot.
What about you guys? I'm honestly feeling a bit foolish to have tried so many, and I have my fifth pedal inbound.
This is all in the course of about 10 years playing, so a very expensive kink in my head that I hope to work out sooner rather than later.
After all, it's the player, not the pedal!
