My birthday is coming up and I want to get a double pedal. My limit is around £170 but I might be able to get it up to £200 if I have no choice. Can you guys recommend me some pedals?

I'd like some Iron Cobras but they are waaay too expensive. Even used.

(I know this isn't a drum forum but I have nowhere else to ask)

Cheers.

Hmm, We got my brother some 200 (us dollar) pearls that are pretty nice. The drummer in my band plays Iron Cobras and says that our pearls are alot lighter.

I liked the feel of Iron Cobras, i'm not really a fan of overly light pedals.

I guess i'll just have to keep looking around

well i am a drummer, and basically your best value is DW 5000, 7000, or 9000 dual chain drive pedals. you can get them for about 300 something dollars. you can go cheaper like pdc for about 100 something or the best is axis for 500 or 600, but again your best value is dw.

Get either Bigdog pedals or DW 7000's. They are good pedals.

I got a deal on mine, about 100 bucks at guitar center. The are PDC's and they are pretty decent. PDP's i beleive are the cheapest brand, and thier not AWFUL IMO, i mean, they are probably to someone that is use to playing on cobras, but for someone starting on double pedals, and set will do.

Be sure to have your drum set on a carpet, and be sure to also purchase velcro for the bottom of your left foot pedal or else it will slide around everywhere when your trying to play.

I find it incredibly idiotic that there is not a forum and tabs section for drums on this site; there's a group based around getting a drum forum, I'm a member, you should probably join if you haven't.

As for the OP, look at musiciansfriend.com; in this months catalog, they had some double bass pedals as cheap as $100 US, and they have reviews on the site, so you can check for quality.

DO NOT LISTEN TO HIM!!

I have a set of those pedals and I swear by all that is holy they are the worst pedals you can get.

It will be a waste of $100
No means maybe

We don't have GuitarCenter over here

I'll look into DW 7000's.

Thanks guys.

Unfortunately they don't ship many things to UK.

well that link describes the axis axel( ugh tonggue twister) see hows its high-lighted. but if you just want the best and fastest, any axis is the way to go, but however they are more towards the lighter side, like the cobras(not as bad tho). try the dw 7000s, its what i use, they are heavy and hit the hardest, and with practice you can get just as fast, but i think the are meant more for power and precision( which is more important!)

Ok cool. It's a pain trying to find things in the UK, stuff is either overpriced or non existant.
