Seb, do you play heel-down and play off the head? I just read a review where it was argued that in it's original state it promotes burying the beater - and if you want to play off the head you'll probably loose some of the benefits of this pedal. Do you feel the same?Mine as well. I did add a little beater weight (Tama I think) to the shaft for a bit more oomph in higher volume contexts. In the original state, they are great for soft&fast playing though, something I feel is lacking with bigger, heavier models - where, even though bearing etc. are great, there's sometimes too much inertia.
The Jojo pedal? No, not really. It's a very sensitive, light pedal, great for letting it bounce off the head. I rather remember a renowned NYC big band drummer mentioning he had issues with it not providing enough power.Seb, do you play heel-down and play off the head?

- Buy an Axis or Trick universal. That should give you a slack freeI just picked up a Pearl P100 TW double kick pedal for 60 bucks on craigslist. Its in really good shape. The only thing is the bushings on the hinge of one of the pedals are worn making the pedal have too much side to side play. Seems like it should be an easy fix. Any idea how to get them? Looks like a pin all the way though. Also are the bushings available? I know its quite old.
Some Yamaha pedals can do this from themselfes.Lefty drummer wishing a certain model of double pedal was available for your backwards feet? I’m looking at you, Tama Dyna Sync.
I found a video awhile back showing how to convert any right footed double pedal to lefty. I’ll post it when I dig it up. Seemed like this thread might be an appropriate place to share the info.
Awesome, thanks for the insight!The Jojo pedal? No, not really. It's a very sensitive, light pedal, great for letting it bounce off the head. I rather remember a renowned NYC big band drummer mentioning he had issues with it not providing enough power.
More recently, I've been more into dry, muffled bd sounds. Not necessarily burying the beater, but not against it either. I have been thinking about going back to a Pearl Eliminator I used before because it's heavier, but that little beater weight has been sufficient so far.
Ha! And I'm an English teacher! See what happens with all this remote teeching! Though, I do love that pedal, even if it makes a lot of extraneous noise in the mechanismI realize you simply missed typing the "r", but something about a "Camco Fist series" has an appealing ring to it, in a modern sense.
Edit: OH, and I bought the Iron Cobra Lever Glide hi hat stand, too. I do like it, but I honestly liked the DW 9500 hat stand better, but felt conflicted about mixing brands. I went with what my kick drum foot preferred, lol. One day I will own TWO full drum kits!
Yes! I finally got my Perfect Balance pedal - and it is awesome! I unpacked it and set it up without doing any adjustments and it feels great! It feels like it sticks to my foot and I feel like I can do faster stuff more easily - wow! Maybe it's the strap - it's my first pedal with a strap. I used an Iron Cobra before.My favourite single pedals being the Sonor Perfect Balance ( both models). They feel light , fast and smooth . I have also found them to be very reliable too.
I own one of these, too, and I think it's a great pedal. Also own a Pearl Demon Drive direct, which may be built a little better but cost twice as much. I've got the Quicksilver set up just the way I want, love it. Comes with a chain drive option, too. Great value any way you look at it.Currently Ddrum Quicksilver direct drive. Single pedal option. It's really really nice and feels nice under foot, wasn't difficult to dial up and in. I had an inexpensive Tama years ago and it was fine, and I had a vintage Ludwig before that and it was also fine, but I'll stick with this one unless I come across something I can't imagine.
I'm not the double pedals type..
