First go to support.ea.com and they should replace the pedal.
If you want a better pedal, you could look into buy a metal-reinforced or wooden pedal online.
Also the new RB2 drums come with a steel pedal. They should really sell that separate...

You should try that first, you could also get the destroyer pedal from rockbandpedal.net, which is perfect for advanced players. My pedal has snapped too I will be investing in one of these pedals soon. I just managed to fix my pedal for now, If it's cracked in he middle like mine I can help you provide a temporary fix if you need it.

Any particular reason you are set on a real pedal over one of the stronger RB pedals? BTW, that Destroyer pedal mentioned earlier IS a real pedal. It's just been modified for use in RB. It even has the beater assembly still in tact so you can add a beater and use it on a real kit.

Haha, I see myself quoted here!

I bought a wooden pedal from woodrockpedals.com but I don't think that site works anymore. My only problem with it was that the pin slipped out so I had to use electrical tape to make sure it stays in... I love the way it feels to play though, but I'm sure there is better out there.

I don't particularly like the RB2 pedal in comparison.. I feel like it's harder to hit quick than my wood pedal.

The site above is sort of pricey.. and not sure I could justify $75 on a new RB pedal but if you want long lasting quality, I guess it's worth it for some people.

Yeah it is pricey for a game component, but he has to cover the cost of the pedal, plus compensate for the time it takes to mod it. Doing it yourself won't be much cheaper. That pedal alone costs anywhere from $35 to $50 depending on where you get it.

I just bought a machined aluminum plate off ebay ($20) for my pedal when it snapped. A little glue, a couple of screws and it's all good.

For starters, the RB1 forums are pretty dead by comparison. Not that many people still visit these compared to the RB2 ones. Most of the regulars probably already responded.

I've already asked why you want a real one over a sturdier RB pedal and got no response. I can't help if I don't know your reasoning behind it. Are you looking to get in to drumming or are you just thinking it'll be 'cool' to have a real pedal. You'll get a different answer depending on your reasoning.

Plus I told you that the one already mentioned in this thread is a real bass pedal already modified for use in RB.

*sigh* Let's try this one more time. http://www.rockbandpedal.net IS A REAL PEDAL THAT HAS BEEN MODDED TO WORK WITH RB. YOU DON'T HAVE TO MOD IT, IT'S ALREADY BEEN DONE FOR YOU.

If you insist on doing the work yourself, I recommend one of these pedals.

if I had the cash I'd be buying a destroyer pedal, don't fancy attempting to mod one myself, the destroyers are a good price for what they are.
