Just ordered my sessions kit. One of the first upgrades I want to make is a double bass pedal. I would appreciate any advice on a good mid-price pedal. I've heard the Tama Iron Cobra is good, but what about any of the Pearl pedals?
Would appreciate any advice or suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

Pearl’s PowerShifter Eliminator pedal comes standard with four cams, each with a unique shape and all interchange at the push of a button thus giving the Eliminator the action and feel of four different pedals for the price of one!

for more info see: http://www.pearldrum.com/pedals.asp

However, I recommend trying a few different pedals to find the right one - the most important thing is that you feel comfortable.

I currently have the P-101 Powershifter pedal that is stock with the Sessions kits. I saw that Pearl makes an add-on for their single pedals to convert them to doubles.

Any comments, good or bad, on these add-on pedals?

i was a single pedal guy for ove 20 years . . i finally gave in when i started playing a lot of dave matthews covers and realized i just couldnt do all the things carter was doing with a single pedal . .

id been using a dw 5000 and since i was not really sure about the whole idea of a dbl pedal, i didnt want to shell out big bucks for one . . guitar center ran an add for the tama iron cobra JR dbl kick for under $190 so i got one . .

bottom line is that i love the new pedal (although it's taking a while to get used to) and it's comparable in feel, and quality to my old dw . . in addition, it came with a case, which is nice.

bottom line is, from my experience, the tama iron cobra junior is a quality pedal for significantly less $ than the top end hardware . .

(ps . . i gig 3-4 times a week, so it gets used and abused.)

The eliminator is the best pedal I have ever used, I'm buying one soon. Make sure you try an eliminator if you dont try any others, because it is a fantastic pedal.
