Default Re: Harry - OFF-SET vs. Sleishman

The Sleishman seems an odd duck to me. The pedal boards look heavy. Angles look like parts will wear out after awhile. I've seen vids and they appear to play as well as anything else. They cost a lot more. Used to anyway.

Why did you switch?

Then there's the Sonor, which costs an arm and a leg.
Hey, have read your reviews and stuff in some other forum somewhere, and watched your pedal review vid, they both helped me quite a lot while looking for pedals. Pity the Drumnetics guy can't get it together and make some pedals, was sold on them but when I contacted him they were still 'in the works', and about 6 months later still no news so I went elsewhere. I can second Harry's comment, the Sleishman pedal doesn't feel anywhere near as heavy as it looks.
