Default Where the slave beater strikes...

Some double pedals, such as the Pearls, are designed so that the primary and the slave beater both strike off-center.

Others, such as Axis, are designed so that the primary strikes dead center and only the slave is offset.

Has anyone ever found out whether this has any effect on the sound? Does the off-center method produce a more even sound and volume than the primary-center method? Or is it all the same at speed?

I am assuming here that the drummer is NOT triggering. (and not going overboard on compression)

Studio engineers, drum builders, gear heads, I would love to hear what you've found.
