Re: Am I being scammed?
It appears to have a quick-release hoop clamp. Yamaha puts these on some of their pedals. I could not find this pedal anywhere, but the angles of the cuts in the foot board could be Yamaha, or a copy of a Yamaha. I don't think it is Pearl. I have been a Pearl user since 92, and don't recognize it as a Pearl product. I don't think Pearl ever had a quick-release hoop clamp either.
Something makes me think this pedal is a cob-job. The top part of the spring assembly looks newer, and the driveshaft has some type of screw in the cv joint.
