Re: New pedal from Malleus.
I've been looking for my new "dream double pedal" ever since my demon drives were stolen last year.
I'm somewhat of a double pedal buff. I have a pair of the original Axis pedals, a newer Axis longboard pair, the trick dominator, the offset, (had) the demon drive and Eliminators.
I know all of the major pedals pluses and minuses. This pedal seems to address them:
1. No cast parts. Everything machined from wrought aluminum. (the demon drive is almost perfect for a direct drive but it fails on this count)
2. High end bearings.
3. No latency on slave
4. Slave/main beaters strike equidistant from center. (big problem with the axis if you don't trigger)
5. Highly adjustable
6. Actually available (as opposed to the Devils hoof Polish pedal in the States)
7. Uses an expansion spring (as opposed to that horrible feeling compression spring on the Trick)
I'm really considering these pedals. (Which, if you know me, means that I will probably order a pair with a week)
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
