Cool What Is Your "Go To" Bass Pedal

Hey all,

I use a mid 90`s Gibraltar Prowler for my double pedal and my Ludwig Ghost for my single pedal...I have others, but, these are my "go to" pedals...

What are yours?

Cheers

My main double that I use for all my shows and home practice ( when I can ) is a combination Tama Iron Cobra, & Iron Cobra Jr. I basically rebuilt the pedal from the ground up. Double chain on main & slave, classic '90s foot boards ( not the black cobra ones ) In the end this is more like the first Gen Iron Cobra'a. IMHO the best version. Then it's a toss for my single. It's either the Speed King,Camco, or the Pearl Eliminator. Really boils down to the band and my needs. Typically though I have the double on most of my set-ups.

Anything available, right now it's a Speed King or Camco, but I've used a dw 8000 and a dw 5000 double pedal, although I'm not crazy about double bass pedals or double bass. I'm not too picky on pedals, as long as it's in good working order.

Ludwig Atlas Pro. Easiest and smoothest pedal I've ever played.

Since 1965 it's been the Speed King. Never found anything else that comes close.

Tama King Beats from the 1980's are the only pedal I haven't broken in one way or another while stomping on them.
