If you buy new directly from Offset, they offer it with or without the case. With the case it's $70 more. I bought mine from them like 3 months ago (brand new discontinued blue model) without the case since I don't gig. I paid $289 shipped. Unfortunately they don't carry the discontinued model anymore. By the way, the old one is almost the same as the new one, it's just a different color, footboard logo and the center base on the new one is a tad longer which makes no difference. I just went to the website and they went up in price. I think the current model was like $379, now I see it's $429. Whichever one you are looking to buy used, ask the guy if he has the case. You never know! Also make sure it looks good, I saw some used ones when I was looking for mine and some looked pretty used. But of course you can see it by the pictures. (I'm sure you know all this stuff!) One other thing, I changed the beaters on it. I like round felt beaters and not those 2 sided things. I invested $50 in a pair of Ahead machined aluminum core beaters and the thing is incredible with those. But of course the beaters are personal preference.I just found a used one on eBay for 250 shipped. Gonna try it in my studio. If I end up liking it, I’ll get a new one for gigging. Does it come with a case?
- Both Trick and Axis have slack free universals. They also offer universals that will fit other makes; contact them for specifics.I always recommend the Trick Pro-1 V pedals. The left slave pedal feels better than all other pedals that I've tried. They can take some time to get used to but I find that it's worth it for the performance and setup options that they allow.
