  • Bass drum pedal about to go...HELP

    Hi all,

    I know this topic has been exhausted, but things change (new products, more experience with older products, etc.). So...

    Any recommendations on a new bass drum pedal?

    I prefer one that's light hitting and fast (believe it or not, been using a Ludwig Speed King, but it's finally starting to go-circa 1973!)

    Packing it up for the Smithsonian!

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Thanks!

      Thanks GRRAVEE,

      Is there a difference between the DW 7000 and DW 5000?

        hey rick -

        i would try the three grravee mentioned plus the pearl eliminator pedals. i have a dw pedal but play the pearl stuff all of the time and think they feel pretty outstanding. head down to the store and try them out!

          I'll second the Pearl Eliminator recommendation. They also offer it in a strap drive model which has a lighter, "floating" feel. I owned an Axis A for about 2 years and the Pearl strap drive is very similar in feel.

            I've played both. The 7000 is good enough, but if you want all the nifty things to completely customize your playing, such as elevator heels, the footboard weights, and all the other adjustments, i'd go with the 5000 and pay the extra money.

              INDUSTRIAL IS CORRECT.THE 7000 SERIES LOOKS COOL BUT A PEDAL OF THAT QUALITY CAN BE HAD BY PURCHASING A BASIC TAMA,GIBRALTAR,ETC.AS FOR THE ELIMINATORS BY PEARL......I COMPLETELY FORGOT I HAVE'NT AS OF YET HAD A CHANCE TO PLAY THESE BUT I HEAR NOTHING BUT GOOD FROM SOME PRETTY PICKY PEOPLE

                Thanks everybody for your suggestions.

                I'll compare the rack of pedals with the DWs, the Pearl Eliminator and the Axis.

                P.S. I hope to check out the Sonor pedal as well. I'll let you know what I think of it, seems real pricy right now.

                  Don't forget to check out the Tama Iron Cobra either. I have an older Tama pedal for my A-drums. I bought my V's used and the double pedal Cobra's were in the deal. What a difference. Smooth, quick, and very responsive. I haven't tried the DW's which I'm sure are great, but don't leave out the Cobra's, they're definately worth a shot. They fly (unfortunatley I don't )
