Default Re: Axis e-kit vs Trick laser trigger

Haha, I would love to, but I just bought the pedals and the triggers cost about as much as them. It's a crazy marketing strategy and I don't know the reasons behind it. So while they might kick a**, I don't see myself springing for them anytime soon, out of financial responsibility.

And if I do raise the cash, would I be better off spending a little differently and getting an Axis pedal with e-kit? Hence, the original question :)

I like the pedals I have, but I haven't really had the chance to really work with some of the other direct drives. It's interesting that you like the Pearl Demon Drives so much, beyondbetrayal, especially having an Axis pedal in your arsenal.

One of the key concerns I have with external triggers is the set up time on a drum that's not your own at a gig. Ensuring trigger consistency would be really important. Plus, all the time taken to stuff the bass drum, tighten to tension, etc. In-built kick triggers would be really useful in such a situation.
