You also might want to check out my video report from Summer NAMM 2013 where I interview Todd Trent from Taye drums. He demonstrates all of the features of the Taye Metalworks Kick pedal, albeit the single pedal. You'll be able to see all of the great features and adjustments of the pedal.

I currently own DW single pedals, sold my DW double pedal, and plan to purchase the Taye Metalworks in the near future to replace them all.

Check out the Taye Metalworks Double Pedal:

I was very impressed with the feel and unique adjustments available on the single and double Metalworks pedals by Taye. The double pedal is available for less than $400.

Looking for a new pedal and I don't want to spend more than $400. What do you guys consider to be the best for the price?

Hi All! I'm new to the Drummer Cafe forum so I just want to make an introductory post. I play in Stimpy Lockjaw, a jazz/fusion/prog/rock/metal band. We play all original music. Anyway, just wanted to post up our latest youtube clip previewing sections from our upcoming record. Please let me know what you think! Cheers!

I have no doubt that you'll see a pretty huge difference pretty quickly if you want to invest a bit to study up and get on the right track.

Good luck to you!

I definitely am considering it, thanks! I think my technique is fine for slow to mid speeds, and it seems to be the most natural feel for me that keeps the best time, but again, it chokes up at above 120-125 bpm. I have about 4 weeks of school left and a somewhat scattered summer schedule (for some alliteration) after that, so I'll have to see when I can do this. Until then, I'll try to pull together resources as much as I can and try to learn to relax more at the tempos troubling me.

Hey, thanks for the endorsement Bart (the check's in the mail).

Matthew, it's definitely a matter of technique. You're forcing your body to do something the hard way and you body's letting you know that it doesn't like it. What you're experiencing is very common and I specialize in helping people get out of their own way in order to play more relaxed, more musically, fast etc. In addition to the site I also teach lessons over Skype. I have no doubt that you'll see a pretty huge difference pretty quickly if you want to invest a bit to study up and get on the right track.

Good luck to you!

Would these lessons help me get more power out of using my wrists and fingers?
Until I have time to do this, I'll try incorporating more of my wrists and fingers. Thanks for the suggestion!

If you check out Bill's website, and watch some of the introductory videos he has there for free, you'll get the idea.

... and I wouldn't have suggested it if I didn't think it would help.  ;D

Bill is a member here at the Drummer Cafe, so hopefully he will chime in soon.

Hmmm....sounds interesting. I'm fairly broke right now but I'm in the clear with helping my dad pay off excess college tuition funds for this semester, so I'll have to find a time to do this. I've been using a combination of arm and wrist with a LITTLE bit of fingers when doing those speeds. I'm able to use just wrists with those speeds, but I get absolutely no power unless I put my arm into it (in which case I just get fatigued within 1-2 minutes like I said). Would these lessons help me get more power out of using my wrists and fingers?
