I see that Mike from Drumnetics has posted a Youtube video about the details of the conversion process > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stqFvHNK3Zg
I've had mine for 7 or 8 months now, and now that the initial excitement that you get with any new purchase has faded, I can truly say that it's a great pedal. I'm really happy that I did this.
The best way that I can describe it is that when I was playing the original pedal, I would think about the pedal and have to adjust it every once in a while it to try to chase the feel and action I was looking for. Or I would wonder if a new pedal would be better.
Now with the magnets and the direct drive, I don't think about the pedal at all. I haven't adjusted it one bit, and it works so smoothly that I don't even think about it. It's like it's not even there. Which I think is a really good thing. It's beyond intuitive - it's just invisible.
Not sure if that makes sense, but that's my 2 cents anyway.
