Smooth feel and quick action - Reviews Tama Iron Cobra Double Kick Powerglide

I bought this unti to replace a cheaper tama bass pedal I had for years. The first thing I noticed was my feet felt much more capable with these pedals than before. I was able to get more out of my right foot on these than I was with another friends cheap set of double pedals. Also, instead of an "all around" mallet the Twin Cobra uses Hammer style mallets. I'm not sure exactly why, but the hammer mallets give much more ummph and projection to my Kick drum. It sounds much more solid now as opposed to using the cheap tama. The build of the units themselves is also really great. They are what appear to be steel and cast Iron which makes them fairly heavy and durable. I guess the only thing I didn't like about this unit was the cheap plastic case it came with. The case itself is strong and able to withstand a good beating, but the "clips" that keep it closed broke off within weeks. Now it won't stay closed and the only "repair" is to wrap a synch strap around it. I believe these still go for over $300 dollars new so I was very pleased with only paying $175 for a very good condition set. Even at full price, I would still have boughten them as they have brought so much life to my feet when I play drums. I never really liked playing double bass until I got these. Now I'm trying to put double bass into all these songs to my fellow engineers chagrin. I tried the DW dual pedal and that was really nice too but I got a better deal on the Cobras so I bought those. I would definitely make the same choice again.
