    Looking for suggestions on an economical drum pedal to put in my practice chain. Nothing fancy, just something to set a beat instead of a metronome.

    Ideas?

    I've got a Digitech Trio I've been thinking of selling.

    The Trio can be used without any of the "effects" on each genre correct? I'm looking for something I can put past a GT-1 then just out to headphones for practice and crafting.

    It is a bit more capability than what I was thinking, but what do you want for it?

    Yeah, you can turn the effects off, you can turn the bassline off. I just used it as a simple drum machine myself. I'll let it go for $85 plus actual shipping. I'll also throw in the foot switch controller (a $30 value!). I think I might still have the original box too.

    Ya I got a SDRUM pedal and watched some videos on setting up the rhythms. It’s simple compared to a drum machine. I have only done a few test beats thus far but it goes relatively fast once the core beat is established. Cool pedal

    I have to second the Digitech Trio suggestion. I bought a used original trio for 50 bucks...not the trio+. Super happy with it. Easy to create beats and gets easier too once you've learned some tricks...the most important is keep your playing super simple when teaching the unit the song. And use a metronone to keep tempo consistent when creating multi-part songs.

    I you don't have a looper and you're thinking about grabbing one, I can recommend the Digitech jamman solo. Just got it, and while I honestly haven't used it very much, my first few passes with the drum feature have been good. Not a lot of features on the rhythm section, but solid. Plus you get a kickass looper with USB and a memory card...
