If you ever get to try an Iron Cobra I highly recommend it. You don't have to use much force at all and are great for speed. You can play longer as your legs don't tire as fast. And Ahead drumsticks last a lot longer and don't make your hands numb. I forget what they're made of but are well worth looking into if you've never used them.
I've been one to prefer pedals that take little effort to make contact with the bass, as my body sort of prevents me from using too much force, and I have no brand preference, as long as they hit, I'm good haha.
Oh no, they're that much for either left or right. I found some php leftys for like 120, if I sell the mapex pedals I'll be good to go. I think that's all I'll need other than some new rods for the toms that go on my bass drum.
That's why I haven't posted my drums on here, they're a mess.
I personally like the Tama Iron Cobra. It's double-chained for a swift, hard hit and is really smooth. They are kind of expensive but well worth the money. Now that you mention it I don't think I've ever seen a lefty pedal on any site or magazine. I never thought about it. I think it's stupid to charge more for one though.
So, I went to guitar center to see about some left lead double bass pedals...they're trying to make me buy $400 mapex brands..I mean for pedals? That's crazy. I have some and they're mapex but they're right lead. Friend said he got them for like 180.
