I'm playing a pacific kit and want a good double bass pedal for not a lot of money. I'm looking twords the pacific DP402 double pedal. Got any suggestions?

What price range are you looking at? That will narrow it down some.

Cheaper is better

You can do a search on this forum on this topic. Plenty of info here, also try ebay. I would look at the Gibralter line and Pearl and the Iron Cobra series. I would go try all you can at your local music shop and determine which is right for you then do your research for pricing online to get the price your willing to pay. It will take some time but if you do your homework, everything will well.

Go for a secondhand pedal. A good quality pedal will be fine secondhand, and will last you much longer than a cheap 'new' pedal.

The DW 4002 double pedal, it's around $150, it's super sturdy, petty smooth and good looking. (hey....just like me:D )

Can I Get it at the Edina, Minnesota Guitar center for that price??

I have no clue, but prob.

try www.musiciansfriend.com

The pedal is super sturdy, and will last u a long time, u may find the lack of adjustment options a pain, but ur not gunna do better than the 4002 for $150.

You will do better if you find a decent secondhand pedal instead :D

I use a Pacific Double Pedal as my "back-up". I purchased it at Guitar Center (La Mesa, CA location) for about $100.00. I've had it about a year, and it's never given me any problems.
I actually brought it as a "loaner" for some gigs, because I had to ship my DW5002 Accelerator back to DW when it broke. I liked it so much, that I decided to keep it for my second kit once my DW was repaired!! Although it doesn't have nearly all of the adjustablity(?) of the DW, it's rock solid nonetheless. Great bang for the buck!!

thanx, that's what i think ill get, and it's $120 at G-Center.

Hey, just to give you an idea. I just sold a DW 7002 on ebay for $125 and the pedal was in GREAT condition. Very solid pedal for the money.

03-24-2003, 08:42 PM
Thanks for the tip. Has anybody else had good luck on ebay?

03-24-2003, 08:57 PM
Not in the Double Pedal Category, but i got a Paiste Signature 17" Full Crash for $100

and (not drum related) i got an Opticle Mouse (Logitec iFeal) for 2 bucks!

i dont recomend that pacific one, usually cheap pedals (or anything) are just crap. i played a 120 dollar gibraltar and the slavle pedal lagged like a sob, that dw 4000 looks pretty nice though

03-25-2003, 03:29 PM
Maybe I'll Go Look On Ebay!!

I'm looking to buy a dw 4000 double bass pedal cuz it's the only 1 i can afford :(

ya the dw4002 are very sturdy double pedals. A friends of mine owns one and i played around with it, overall an ok douple pedal, but i dont recomend it if u like a lot of tension in your foot pedal.

dont get a crappy pedal. save up your money and get something that will last, like an IC or Eliminator
