Re: Axis question
One thing to keep in mind is that if your beater is situated far back and your pedal plate is low, there's a danger of bottoming out before your beater strikes the drum head.
I think there's nothing like a separately adjustable beater and footplate, it just opens up more possibilities with regard to your pedal settings.
I think the A21s will be what you're looking for, if the 21 degree angle is backward and not forward (am I making sense here?) What I was thinking is that this will allow the footplate to be situated lower and the beater further back than the conventional Axis pedals.
Or did I get it all backward? :s
