    Default to go pearl? or DW?

    I think the hardware forum is dead lol.... Ive seen so many mixed reviews about good double bass pedals.
    I currently own two, Pearls Redline P2052C (I think that's correct) and a DW9000... Now I haven't fully played with the Pearl pedal yet as I just got it. But its so crazy the amount of different settings... And one thing I like about it is you can remove the link bar and have two single pedals.. I thought that was awesome for those of us who may want to use two bass drums rather than one. Has anyone played this pedal? The DW9000 feels smoother and easier to control. But then again one is about $230 bucks more than the other one too. It also could just be that I'm use to the DW9000. But I learned how to play a double bass pedal on a Pearl 932 (which for its price is a great pedal). I just feel like the redline wants to freaking go! I'm not a speed metal player by any means... But on Amazon there was a review stating the guy had played the dw9000 and the Pearl Redline and said the redline better. So I'm assuming its really all about preference... Oh and I wanted to ask if people think DW is over rated? Ive met some people who thought DW was a low level product. Until they check the price tag.. But does price really make that big of a difference in quality? Because Pearl to me is a quality Product that a lot of people know.

    While these pedals wouldn't be my first choice, I still found the DW 9000 to be smoother than the Eliminators.

    The only forum that is active as any forum can be is drumforum.org. The only problem is they need a youth movement. It feels like everyone is 60, but if this place everyone here should run over there.

    I love my Eliminators and so does everyone who plays them. I've never played another pedal that felt as good.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

    Same here, strap drive Eliminators wipe the floor with just about everything else. Only thing i'm yet to try is the Redline stuff. But I'm so happy with my 10 year old Elims, that I see no reason why I should change.
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    4 Kits and 8 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    I’m on the Demon Drives. I bought them when they came out in 2009. I had the Elims before those and the 9000’s before the Elims. I’ll take the Demon’s over the other two, but the Elims were definitely nicer than the 9000’s. I just got a brand new set of Demon Drives. Name:  C2EE558C-03C6-44ED-81B0-5ACB297B579E.jpg

    DFO is MUCH more active than this forum... and the quality of the members’ conduct and participation is MUCH higher. Before I typed this post, this forum had 20 posts today, and DFO had 53.

    Update... Wednesday 10/23/19, PDF has 4 posts so far, and DFO has 52... no contest.
