Re: new Drum Workshop Direct Drive pedal @ NAMM 2014
It does appear to be a high quality, well engineered pedal, but anything above Trick prices would be a dumb move. Trick pedals are arguably the best money can buy, and more often than not, said to be worth the money. There is no way DW is going to make a pedal as good or better.
Therefore by pricing them too high all they will do is make the best pedal on the market (Trick) look more affordable. You don't build a Chevy dealership across the street from a Ferrari dealership and put $150K price stickers on your corvettes.
