I got a 100 dollar pair that's no name. it feels right and plays how I need.

if you have good ones why upgrade? you aren't going to sound better. your own ability to play is what makes it sound good.

I use Axis A Longboards and before that Iron Cobra. I'd like to try Trick pedals as well as I hear they are excellent.

I use Axis A21 Derek Roddy signature pedals, one for each bass drum (I detest playing with a double pedal on one bass drum). The cool thing about these pedals is that the no. 1 piece on the pedal (the part of the pedal that holds the beater and is attached to the drive shaft) is angled forward 21 degrees, allowing the beater to hit the kick head at its maximum impact point, allowing for naturally louder bass drum strikes without any real added effort, as opposed to the traditional no. 1 piece that's angled at 90 degrees and hits the kick head past the maximum impact point, giving the feeling of playing through the kick head. It's also got drum key lugs in certain places as opposed to hex key lugs for quick changes and fixes, and probably the biggest selling point of the pedal is that the eKit triggers come already attached to the pedal instead of needing to be bought separately.

My favorite thing about this pedal is that, even with all this new stuff and the angled no. 1 piece, it retains the classic Axis pedalboard design. The original A21 pedals look like this:

Basically it looks like it was made for drummers with really fat feet. The D-Rod A21s, however, look like this:

By combining the new no. 1 piece with the feel of the classic Axis pedalboard, they have made my ideal drum pedal for pretty much any style of music, although obviously these pedals are best when you're playing really fast, stamina-testing extreme metal.

I use Pearl Demon Drive Eliminators, they've been great. I had to spend some time figuring out all the different settings but once I got it everything went pretty smoothly (no pun intended). Haven't had to mess with any adjustments for a year now. Some of the parts are manufactured by Trick, so I see it as a less expensive version of a Trick pedal. The other advantage of these is that the slave pedal can easily convert to a single pedal without needing any sort of extra adapter.

I use Taye Drums PSK602C. Nothing fancy, but I like them.

My first pair was a DW 3000 with a slave. Felt good enough, but it was really a chore to adjust the settings on the pedals. I always felt that something was "off" about them. I sensed some lag on the slave as well.

I finally upgraded to a set of used Trick Pro 1-V shortboard pedals. The pedals are infinitely more responsive, powerful, and easy to adjust. I've been able to work on my technique much more efficiently now that I can quickly adjust the board height, spring tension, and beater distance. The slave felt very responsive, but I went ahead and bought a second bass drum anyway. I've been playing with one beater per drum since then.

I haven't had a chance to try any other pedals, but I don't have a reason to. I'm quite satisfied with the Trick. The only thing I might consider is replacing the shortboards with longboards, which I think Trick sells standalone in their online store.

My first pedals were a set of Premier Double Bass Pedals. They were good for beginning, really nothing to complain about. Basic, did their job. Helped me build my stamina!

After that I got 2 bass drums and upgraded to the Iron Cobra Power Glides. Those were great.

Theeeen after having tons of issues with drum triggers, I upgraded to Axis Longboards with E-Kits. I tried going back to my Cobras, but it just was not the same and they felt so low and tight.

That's how I felt with the Axis when I had a set. minus the tight part. I couldn't ever get them tight or to respond how I like. it was just weak feeling.

I have two single bass drums so I just need single pedals. I want to upgrade from some old heavy single chain DW5000s. I'm thinking about the Speed Cobra 910. Any thoughts? What does everyone else play?
