    3 in 1 oil or any other light machine oil is all you need.

    You could justify buying a proper trick retrofit drive and making the most amazing upgrade possible to your pedals.

    I rarely use a double pedal anymore, but that Trick driveshaft is absolutely the best advancement in double pedals since the advent of the double pedal. I have one that I use with a 90s Yamaha double. Just so smooth. Worth every penny of the investment.

    I'm pretty sure they make one for every common pedal out there

    THIS!
    Best drive shaft out there and not even expensive. I guess it is same that comes with Demon Drives. Pearl shaft costs way more.

    And yes, you can put one of these to Iron Cobras and any other drum pedals. They make also shafts for DW pedals.

    There are 2 different versions, one for DW/Axis, the other for everything else.

    Axis has a Universal Driveshaft, as well. I have used one on my Eliminators for many years. I wouldn't even consider a different one. The Axis looks way tougher than the Trick imo. The Axis is industrial strength. Lol.

    I looked at the axis too... understanding how they work is the difference. The Trick shaft is built on racing drive-shafts in automotive applications. It is actually stronger than the axis shaft, which is just a heavier version of the common u-joint. I dislike the common u-joint, so the Trick was a no-brainer. It's designed better than any other shaft.

    The trick shaft is top notch. Worth every penny.

    Maybe they've changed their design since my Axis days (late 90s/early 00s), but when I went from two bass drums to a double pedal, I had nothing but trouble with Axis' driveshafts. They had to send me replacements 4 times within a little over a year. The U-joints are beefy, but still prone to getting sloppy. The one thing Axis has over the others is that when it gets sloppy, you can adjust the screws that hold the joints together... Just hit them with a heat gun to loosen up the Loctite, add more Loctite, and adjust the screws accordingly before it dries.

    If you're going for an aftermarket driveshaft, Trick. All day, e'ery day.
