    Default preferred specs on drum pedals: Heavy wide base plate, lightweight etc

    Price matters. Give me your shot on will there be an improvement over my PDP 500 double chain pedal now at 94.00 to go over 100.00. I see the lightweight offers of other brands, I believe I can use a bit of good weight holding down my bass drum and can hold up to the occasional drop during set up. I like a hard beater head over the felt for my live playing Sure there should be a wide pedal bass plate. Then there is the Tama Speed Cobra HP3101, claiming 40% lighter

    My translation:
    Do you think any future improvements will increase the weight of the PDP 500 double chain pedal? Mine weighs 94.00 oz. I prefer a slightly heavier pedal (greater than 100.00 oz) with a wide pedal plate to keep my bass drum in place and withstand the normal wear-and-tear of dropping and/or playing it.

    Since I am also looking at other brands' lightweight pedals and staying within budget, what are your thoughts on the $229.99 Tama Speed Cobra HP310L? They claim the "LiteSprocket offers smooth action at 40% the weight of a standard sprocket."

    You certainly put way more time into that than I’d be willing to.

    Wow! I absolutely did NOT catch on that the 94 was the weight in oz. I thought he was refencing the "price matters" part of his statement and that his current PDP WAS $94...

    I could be wrong. The pedal does cost $94.99 at Sweetwater.
