Yup, basta heavy duty (ex. iron cobra, eliminator, dw 5000...) and ok condition. Usually wear and tear nyan sa mga parts lang na napapalitan like spring and bearings (pero rarely). Pero yung mga light pedals na second hand imo, pass

Yup! If susubok ka pa lang naman paunti unti ng high end model pedals na in the end malalaman mo rin talaga kung alin sa mga nasubukan mo yung matitipuhan mo. May it be single or double.

Naalala ko I started sa Gibraltar 5000 series single ped, then bought a second hand 6000 series naman. Binenta ko yung 5000. Tas after, sumubok naman ako second hand ulet na Pearl Eliminator, so binenta ko si 6000. Then finally, napunta na sa true love ko talaga, Demon Drive. Binenta ko si Elims.

But I guess if you have the budget already and alam mo na by heart kung alin talaga gusto mong pedal, then go na sa brand new.

Agree din ako kay boss jckazs, wear and tear lang naman magiging sakit ng second hand hardwares eh such as pedal and other cymbal stands. Pwede naman i-upgrade.

Hello po. 1st double pedal po kasi. E bumabase palang po tlga ako sa reviews/videos at price ng amazon. MAgkano po ba average add price dito saten?

May pinahiram po kasi yung tropa ko na generic double peds. Ang una po nasira saknya yung beater angle cam na loosethread po..

Maganda na yung 6000 series ng Gibraltar double peds. Beginner to Pro use at an intermediate price range. Bang for the buck na.

Depende kung anong brand. Pero usually branded na double chain w/ baseplate ok yan. Magkano ba budget? Meron DW 5000 sa classifieds very good deal imo kahit me flaw (pero hindi ako sigurado kung ano effect ng flaw - ask the seller kung interesado ka). DW 5000 single gamit ko...been with me for 8 years, wala pa ko pinapalitan na part and bihira ko ginagalaw settings. Maintenance ko lang spray ng lube sa spring para hindi maingay. Generic usually madaming cut corners pag manufacture kaya masmadali masira. Minsan hindi ok quality ng bakal kaya madali ma loose thread. Minsan din naman negligence...over tight screws, maling technique kaya nasisira, kahit high end pa yung pedal

Speed cobra 310
[/URL][/img]
Zildjan S series Mastersound 13

,,... Hmm 1st time ko lang po bumili ng at gumamit ng branded na D.peds.
Sa review ko po.
Yung Speed Cobra 310, Very light gamitin (Speed cobra tlga) Dito walang "Ganit"
Iron Cobra 600 at 200, Same din sila sa "Feel".. light Heavy feel..(Parang sa kambyo ng bike eto yung my pinaka malaki spraket" nas mas light pa. I mean. Pag niyapakan ko parang my "Ganit" , Bumabalik yung paa ko pataas.
Mapex P980. Dito naramdaman yung Ultimate na masrap na saktohan lang. Parang spoon feed ka nalang ng Double pedal na to. Sobrang sarap gamitn
Average price 11-9.5k

Kung ako pag pipiliin.. Mas gusto ko yung Mapex P980. D ko lang sya binili dahil. Nag sosolo nalang sa Shop at phase out na. Kung sino2 narin gumamit nun edi parang hindi na bnew - (For pro use , 200+bpm)
2nd na choice Iron Cobra 600 (14,000 php). My "light heavy feel" parang my tumutulong umangat yung pedal sayo. For beginner like me siguro eto best choice sa 3 pedals
Eto binili ko SPeed cobra 310. LOng board at very light nga. Un nga lang wala yung "Light heavy feel". Kaya siguro dpat ko lagyan ng cobra coil to

About sa Double chain at single chain , hindi ko masabi kasi e.
Like sa Iron cobra 600(Double chain) vs Iron Cobra 200 (Single chain)
Halos same lang sila ng "Feel".

Nice! Yung double chain more sa durability ng pedal than feel. Tama pedals kahit anong heavy duty model tatagal yan sigurado. Magkano mo nabili?

Oo nga no sa durability. Tapos narandaman konarin yung Light heavy feel sa adjustment sa tension spring. 9k po sya sa audiophile.. Gusto ko po subukan yung cobra coil. Malaki po ba effect non sa speed,consistency at endurance?.

The coil helps the pedal to bounce back pero di yan ang makakatulong sa speed, consistency at endurance mo. Practice lang talaga sir ang makakatulong sa mga gusto mo mag-improve sa footworks mo. I hope that helped.
