Nope. Once the slave pedal is detached you have a 9000 for all intensive purposes. I have played on numerous 9000 singles and they feel exactly like the primary pedal of my 9002. They are absolutely wonderful pedals and don't think for a minute I am trying to talk you out of buying them. If you have the cash and an get a good deal, get them, you will not be disappointed.
