So, currently I'm using an entry level Gibraltor pedal ($250 for the double pedal, 3 years ago ). For the past few months I've been focusing on my single pedal technique, and I've felt the most comfortable with the slide technique. However, I am having a lot of problems getting it steady, which seems to be a result of a lack of rebound from the beater. I tried replacing the spring to increase the tension, but that hasn't seemed to work. Could this be a result of the pedal being just plain crappy? Would a higher end single pedal help me achieve more consistency? Thanks!
