The Speed Cobra double pedal might not sit comfortably to everyone's tastes in terms of how much you can tweak them, but they make for a great entry level double bass pedal. These dual chain pedals have highly accurate motion good recoil, and have zero lag once set up competently. We like the duo glide feature as it takes some of the time out of painstakingly finding where you want to be during initial set-up which can be exceptionally hard if you are a complete beginner.
