I did post a couple weeks back about how the Yamaha pedal was "migrating" during use because the rubber inserts on the clamp did not grip the bass drum hoop as well as the metal clamps on his old pedals. Some guys on this forum chimed in however and suggested putting some skateboard grip tape on the hoop. It works perfectly now!
Nice!! thanks for the feedback

One this to be aware of, Yamaha has the lightest beaters out there, so it might feel a little odd coming from the DW and their much heavier beater.
