If you are reading this, you probably have already read at lease 3 or 4 other reviews. You also are trying to decide whether to get the double chain or single, so if you are looking at the single chain here?s my review. Like you before purchasing this product I read the review and I will compare the reviews to how I feel about the actual product. For the most part the reviews for this product were great, some said that it gets a little squeaky after a while, one totally went off on the pedal and said don?t buy it what so ever. I agree and disagree with all of them. To start when you first open the box, the set up looks very easy and it is. It only took 5-10 minutes to put it together. Tip; the first thing I did even before I put it on the drum set, was oil it. I recommend you purchase a can of ?WD-40? at your nearest hardware store, Wal-Mart or Target. IF ANY ONE WORKING FOR GUITAR CENTER IS READING THIS, WD-40 WOULD BE A GOOD PRODUCT TO HAVE IN THE DRUM SECTION! Moving on. BE VERY CARFUL PUTTING ATTACHING IT TO UR BASS DRUM, especially if you have a wooden drum, for it will chip some wood off. Underneath both pedals is Velcro. But, if you are putting this on regular household carpet ?the one with the strands? then the Velcro is of not much help. However, there is on the second pedal something where you can screw 2 nails into the floor, something like what most of you have on your bass drum legs. Lastly playing the double pedal is alsome there is no squeaking no does it slide often. However as I mentioned the pros there are some cons. Deciding where the second pedal goes can be some what challenging, as you may have to more your hi hat to the side a little and your snare up or back, changing the way you are used to playing a bit. Also IT DOES NOT COME WITH FELT BEATERS, so you might want to save some money and invest in a good pair of beaters, for the semi-soft plastic ones they give tend to stick just a little to the plastic bass drum head. REMEMBER! Don?t be stengie on that oil! Use lots of it because it prevents rusting and the annoying squeaking that lucky I have not come across yet.

Definitely a good pedal there is no doubt about that. I guess have one...fairly significant complaint about it though. It's the fact that the main pedal doesn't come with a stabilization plate like the left one does. This is a problem that speaks for itself because not only do humans naturally favor one side of their body and thus use their left and right parts in slightly different ways...but it causes problems related specifically to drumming by potentially making this varying movement a bigger problem over time. Basically...the right leg has to work harder considering there is no stabilization plate. This causes substantially different feels in the left and right foot and even develops ur muscles differently in the process! (my right leg has to work so much harder and it definitely develops and works the right calve more than the left). Also because of the lack of a stabilization plate the whole contraption literally moves back and forth when playing both feet and of course...this makes the issue even more noticeable. But for the price I guess you take that risk...still a good pedal though. And don't expect to use it for very fast playing though. But with some adjustment to the rocking back and forth and different feel of the left and right pedal and a lot of practice and determination it is surprising what you can do with these pedals.

Best Double Pedal For Its Price On The Market

By shan11

from Austin, TX

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

This is a great pedal, especially for its price. I can almost guarentee thet you'll be satisfied with it. With the exception for some people who are really, really picky about their equipment... but anyway, it's easily able to compete with some higher line brands. Before I bought this, I tried out two other pedals, but when I tried this one I immediatly decided on it because it's way smoother than my single and had definately way better reaction. The only problem I had was setting it up. Other than that though, it's perfect.

Great Beginner Pedal

By iceninekills

from PA

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

Great pedal for the price and for a beginner. But if you are an experienced double bass pedal or plan on keeping the pedal to play really fast not a good choice.

Great for price!

By Kevared

from Bloomington, Minnesota

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

before i had a drum kit i wanted to buy some double bass pedals to get started on footwork. I had no idea what to buy and had no prior knowledge about anything drum related...i just wanted to learn. I ended up buying this set without even trying them out and quickly learned to love them. My friends suggested to try other pedals as well but none felt as smooth as these. I have used them for almost 2 years now and still are great! many gigs later I still happy with them

PDP 402

By Alex

from Seattle, WA

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

The PDP 402 Double Bass Pedal I bought two years ago. Since then, I have seen my double bass speed increase exponentially. It feels light, and gets the job done for a double bass pedal. If you're thinking you will play drums as a hobby, then this pedal is for you. However, if you're considering going farther than that, you may want to consider these factors: the pedal doesn't adjust the height of the footboard; and the pedal doesn't provide an adjustment for beater stroke (how close the beater is to the head of the drum). The last factor is rather important because if you play far back on the footboards (like I do), the pedal easily catches on your pants and interrupts playing, or smacks the top of your foot. However, if you're looking for a basic double pedal to learn on and practice with, buy this pedal. It's cheap, and it gets the job DONE.

Amazing value

By billy

from Henderson, NV

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

This pedal plays very simaler to the DW 5002, I have this one at home and for personal gigs, and the 5002 at my church where i twice a week, every week. the only difference is probably how long they'll last. idk yet i'll get back to ya ina few years. but if you're a beginner, or just a broke drummer like myself, this is DEFINATELY the pedal for you.

Nothing Special...

By chaoticharmonyIL

from Chicago

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

These pedals work fine if you dont need to go all that fast on your feet, but the left pedal in particular is pretty unresponsive and very difficult to adjust. Also, the design of the beaters tends to cause a bit more damage than necessary to your skin. So i'd recommend just saving up for a nicer set of Pearl or Tama pedals that are a little less frustrating.

good for beginners

By bob

from madisonville, kentucky

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

This pedal would probably have to bee my choice for beginners- because even though it may not be the fastest, if you get use to playing fasst on this pedal and you buy a better one, you'll go at least twice as fast. It's perfect for practicing

Hmmmm...

By zpeterson617

from OH

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

First off, this pedal is definitely a beginner pedal. It is pretty stiff and doesn't have a lot of rebound. If you occasionally like to come back to playing single bass pedal, then I would recommend switching it out with your old single bass pedal. It doesn't sound that great as a single bass pedal. Over all though, I really enjoyed it. It is durable and if you have strong enough legs can go pretty fast. Once you break it in the stiffness will wear. Good price, decent pedal!!

Great Pedal!

By Michael K.

from Jackson, Ohio

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

Over the past 30 plus years, I've used several different pedals. I can honestly say this double pedal stands with the best. Regardless of what some other reviewers say, this pedal IS responsive. If you find it not to be, then I suggest you adjust the spring tension until you have it where you want. It responds to light subtle beats as well as fast and hard. Very durable too. Easy to adjust, quick to set up. Can't beat the price either. To be honest, don't think of the price as a reflection of quality in this case. Just go into Guitar Center and use one. You'll see. I recommend this pedal to anyone who wants good quality and a great price. Drum on!!

Not my favorite

By music=life

from Milwaukee, Wi

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

This was my first double bass pedal and i learned on it, i played other pedals and this pedal isn't worth it if you're looking for a good pedal, if you're looking to start playing double bass then its an average pedal to learn on, i wouldn't recommend it

BETTER THAN YOU MAY THINK

By Dylan

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I have had this pedal for about six months now and the only thing wrong with it is that it is a little squeaky. This is a really nice pedal to start off with. And no it does not rip your bass heads.

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I purchased this pedal so I could play some heavier stuff and i liked the way it worked. None of the parts have come loose and its very smooth. I recommend buying this if you need a good pedal, but dont have that much money to spend.

Get it!!!! You'll be glad you did!!!

By CWV

from Calera, AL

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

WOW!!! is all I could say about this pedal. When I ordered this pedal about a year ago, I was blown away!!! My uncle even left good remarks about how smooth it is and its sleek looks. I personally like it for its fast speed, though the only problem is that it will seize up after a lot of palying, I mean a LOT!!!! So it's best to have some WD-40 handy just in case. All-n-all, this is the best pedal for the price that i have bought. You would be out of your mind if you passed up the opportunity to get it!

nice for price

By dr. d

from glendale, arizona

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I picked this pedal up about 3 years ago and have used it ever since. I have been playing pretty fast double bass beats of over 140 bpm for the past year now and this pedal has held up to it. All I've needed to do is oil it up. I would highly recommend it to someone starting out on the drums. If you are gigging, spend a couple more bucks to get a higher quality pedal just to be sure that it will not break during a live song. Highly recommend this pedal.

Great Practice Pedal

By Patrick

from Undisclosed

Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I've played several pedals over the years, ranging from beginner models like this, to pro pedals like Iron Cobra and DW 9000. This pedal is a great tool for learning and practicing double bass technique. Perhaps not the most elegant choice, it makes up for its lack of features with an affordable price, durability that can withstand years of abuse, and a straight-forward simplicity that forces proper technique. As it is a beginner model, fluidity is somewhat lacking, and I strongly recommend looking into something a little higher-end for performance as I?ve occasionally lost use of the slave pedal due to one particular screw loosening during play. Other than that, I?ve had no problems with this pedal in three years of regular use. Just keep those joints well-tightened and you?ll find that, for the price, this pedal is a great investment for learning double bass.
