If you are even thinking about buying these, do it. I had those crappy SP pedals before i upgraded. When i got these i emediatly went to my band practice and started playing them. I have never been able to get to those kinds of speeds with the other pedals. I was originally going to buy the Direct drive Gibraltar pedals but i decided to just hope for the best with these. I AM GLAD I CHOSE THESE! These things are extremely durable and are built to last. every silngle part on these pedals are made of metal. Point is, i strongly reccomend these!

I purchased this as a back-up practice pedal for home use and it didn't even deliver to the lowest of expectations. I had to return this item because the machined parts would not fit together correctly. I was looking for a cheap alternative double bass pedal to use just at home as a back-up. My advice would be to spend a little extra money and get something that is not so cheaply made. I wouldn't recommend this to even a novice player. I ended up spedning a little more money and buying the Tama Iron Cobra 200's, which are quality-made pedals and work, and feel great.

Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

I got this in place of my old PDP402 pedal (DONT buy that one please). The main pedal is fantastic, the biggest problems are in the slave pedal. Extremely sloppy and noticeably hard to adjust. It might be the cross arm but Im not sure. Even with constant oiling it still squeaks. The beaters are good. The plastic side gives a nice slap. Only problem is the beater arms are too small for the hole so the come loose all the time unless you tighten it with some industrial screwdriver attached to some kind of vehicle. The amount of adjusting is good. Nothing special. Oh and DONT play this pedal barefoot. Actually you can itll just hurt the first few days. I have a callus the size of california on the inside of my big toe. All in all a solid pedal, the biggest problem is the sloppyness of the slave.

Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

As is the case with nearly all of Gibraltar's hardware, the Avenger is top quality. As long as you're sure you've purchased the "Avenger II" (with both stabilizer plates, 2-sided beaters, etc), you've bought a pedal comparable to the DW9000 series for less than half the price. The pedal is highly adjustable and a great transition from beginning playing to advanced and even professional. Seriously consider this one!

      Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

      Product comes assembled... the (very) little assembly required is instinctive and simple. It is very easy to adjust. This pedal is rock solid; it does not need to be secured to a drum. I set it on the floor and used the packing box as a pad. The pedal did not slip or rattle one bit. It has several contact points that adhere to the floor. Pretty impressive unit.

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        ive had this pedal for about a year now, and at first i was a bit sceptical, i had never used a double pedal before and didnt know what to look for, at first i hated it but then after fine tuneing and some width adjustments and getting the springs to the perfect tension, i can now say i am comepletely happy with them, they are also very sturdy and dont slide at all, the slave does squeek a bit but you cant hear it if youre jammin , overal its a great pedal.

        Solid, Smooth, Hard Working

        By RIPjimmySulivan

        from NYC, NY

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        I've been using these pedals for a few months now and i love them. They're well constructed and, with a little finessing, can kick just as smooth as higher end pedals. I personally play really hard and often and have had no issues with durability. If your comparing these to the basic 100 - 150 dollar pedals its definitely worth the little extra. In comparison to the Cobra Jr's or the P902's it's more a matter of preference in which case i choose the Avengers. Hope this helped !

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        Alright. I have owned this pedal for about 7 months now. Still have it, but desperately saving money to buy buy a better pedal. This pedal real doesn't have features. Just spring tension adjustments. Will say though it is a solid piece f work except for sometime the nut holding the beater loosens up over extensive playing and the beater will just fly right out. The pedal is pretty cheap which is good......I guess. Since I have owned this pedal I have played on Iron Cobras, Pearl Powershift Elimnators and DW 5000's and all these pedals are better. Can play double bass way better on them.

        I have had these Pedals for a year now and they are solid! I love them! They are very smooth, and this drummer I know said he would prefer these over his $500 Iron Cobras. I would recommend these to any drummer!

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        I've had this pedal for about a year and half now and play on it quite frequently. It's still holding up as good as the day i got it. Its a smooth double pedal that stands up to the wear and tear of heavy kicking players. This pedal can easily stand up to iron cobras and pearl pedals, of which i've played on both and prefer this one. Great price for a great pedal.

        Almost perfect.

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        I have been drumming for 16 years and this is the best pedal that I have ever owned. (Got it a little over 6 months ago) I have played on better, but for me, the difference in price between a great pedal and one that is superb is not worth it. The pedal is adjustable and is tunable to a player?s preferences quite nice. It is smooth and rather quick, but I do not think that it would be suitable for Death or Speed metal. The worst thing about this pedal is that it only uses one screw to fasten the beater to the cam. Therefore, when, (not if), the one screw comes loose, your batter will be flopping around at best? or pushed through your head at worst. (Drum head, not your head... that would be catastrophic.) Too bad, they neglected that crucial second screw; else, I would have given this pedal five stars all around.

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        If you like reliability and stability then you will have all of these things without a dent in your pocket.It should have a better locking system for the beaters but it doesn't lose any quality.I play rather rough and these pedals hold up and if you like Gibraltar quality it is All here.The beaters are fine, unless you are after ultra light equipment, the stock beaters matched well.They offer plenty of option for adjustment and the response is quite impressive.The general reaction I get when I show my pedals is a question.How much do they cost? Without this dealer the cost would be almost double, this is no joke go to almost any music store and the MSRP is stunning. This is a great purchase.

        i bought this pedal a month ago and its probly the best pedal ive used. it is adjustable and it can be as smooth as an iron cobra if you make it loose and it kicks back really fast so you can do brutal double bass drum singles during a breakdown so buy it quickly you wont regret it

        Flawed, but Still A Great Value

        By Cloudofsulfur

        from Kennesaw, GA

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        This was my first double-bass pedal. It's one of the cheapest on the market. This pedal is great for the price! The chains that drive the pedals are solid, as are the base plates. The only two problems I had with the pedal were:A.) The beaters that come with it SUCK. Do yourself a favor and get some new ones immediately!B.) The velcro on the bottom of the base plates is actually stronger than the glue that holds them in place. Therefore, anytime you pick up the pedal from the carpet, the velcro squares STAY THERE! I can't tell you how many times I've had to re-glue those things back on, but they're never the same again. Overall, a great pedal for the price. I'm currently saving up for a DW 9000.

        This avenger pedal was my first double-pedal, and I was skeptical a first because it was so cheap...But let me tell you I couldnt be more pleased with this product, its supr fast and very responsive, there is a minor problem...the heads will sumtimes spin around after long, hard consistent play....but overall you can't find a better double-pedal for a price like this!!!

        AVENGER II is a BEAST!

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        Got this pedal about a week ago had 4-5 practices on it so far. We practice like we play live fast and hard. It is a wonderful pedal. It is fast and super responsive. The plastic side of the beaters have a great click sound but still so much punch. The felt side is a little disappointing. Not very loud but still nice. Its a well rounded pedal and I think it is conpareable to a PEARL POWERSHIFTER ELIMINATOR. For a 1/3 of the price. Get this pedal you won't be disappointed!

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        I was a bit hesitant about trying Gibraltar's double pedals, mainly because I just started playing double bass. The pedal is great, I started playing it on a lower end set and I'm amazed. The beaters they sent me with it AREN'T the beaters pictured. Other reviews have said the beaters are bad, but the ones that came with my set up have decent beaters. They're not pancake style or anything like that. The pedals are very sturdy and strong, I'd recommend them to anyone on a budget. I wouldn't say they're iron cobras, but they are definitely good quality and compare to higher end pedals, especially considering the price. Go ahead and try em out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

        Comments about Gibraltar Avenger II Double Pedal:

        Having owned this pedal for a few months, I have found that I should have saved for something better. Upsides : Looks great, built to last. Downsides: Beaters produce a bad sound, foot boards are painful, slave pedal squeaks already, generally not that smooth. I think the intruder ( series above ) would be worth saving for. Nevertheless I think its good for what you pay, just not exceptional.

        This pedal is GREAT! I love the rock plates on both pedals, others that I have seen only have it on the left pedal. It has a solid fluid motion to it. VERY smooth. I play anything from Drowning Pool to Taylor Swift and this pedal is great for anything!
