this is a winner!! also this has got to be the best value double pedal on the market!!...it is smooth as silk and quite speedy as well. I have a pearl Demon drive that is good but I play barefoot and my sweaty foot kept slipping off the dumb chrome disk that pearl put on the foot board...I took the chrome thing off but my baby toes get crushed and bruised up from the sunken empty space thats under said chrome thingy.I bought this PdP pedal on a whim simply because the PdP foot board looked like it would suit my barefoot style better...holy hannah! I was shocked at how well this thing plays!! and its built simple and very solid...and my wittle bare feet stay on the boards comfortably!now its not quite as fast as the demon drive of course but it actually hits harder and louder than the overpriced, overhyped demon drive (demon drive is fast but it is a weak hitter due to the direct drive assembly)..anyways PdP has got a great product here its true there are not a lot of adaptability bells and whistles on it but this is a true gem of a pedal for an insane low price.Hats off to PdP for making a great price...Hahaha I choose to play my PdP pedal over my 600 dollar pearl demon drive....my mind always implodes when I think about it ...save yourself some serious cash and by this pedal now!!!!!!!

This may be a well built pedal but it is so sluggish an unresponsive no matter what you do. The only thing you can "easily" do to change the feel of the pedal is adjust the spring tension. Tight or loose and in between I found no satisfaction. I even switched out the beaters for lighter cobra beaters and still not to my liking. The funny thing is the stock pedal that came with my drums was more responsive and easier to play than this slug. I really DO NOT like this pedal.

    Comments about PDP 502 Double-Kick Drum Pedal:

    I had a Mapex 500 double bass pedal and after a couple of years it was time to put that one to rest. I went looking for a double pedal that was affordable, good quality, and would last me a while. That's exactly what I found with my PDP double pedal. Despite being plastic it is very sturdy. The tension adjuster does not slide after playing like I have seen other pedal do. Also, the double chain drives makes the beater very responsive with every hit. I believe that this pedal is one that you can compare to a DW pedal. If you are an experienced drummer looking for an affordable double pedal, here it is!

    Simply Cannot Beat the Value

      Comments about PDP 502 Double-Kick Drum Pedal:

      Fair Disclaimers in advance: 1) I am only on Day 1 of using this and I bought it for the specific use of my practice kit, NOT full time touring. & 2) I didn't even try out the beaters it came with. I love the Tama Iron Cobra Felt Beaters so that is what I immediately put on it.

      That said, my the Headline of "Simply Cannot Beat the Value" pretty much sums it up. This thing is extremely well made for the price. So if you want to get into the double kick thing and don't want to throw down the insane cake some of these higher end pedals cost, this is a solid bet for sure!

                        Hooked up the pedal to my bass drum and saw that the beaters were off set and could not adjust them so I sent the pedal back.

                              My expectations were not high as this is not a very expensive double pedal, but I was impressed. Built tough and solid, this pedal performs as well as any pedal I've ever owned or tried. Smooth and responsive, and all the same adjustment controls needed. I love the beaters that came with and the drum key with holder is certainly handy.

                              I LOVE this pedal. Probably going to buy another to have same on my practice kit.
