Does yours play in both directions?
Yes, my cabasa plays in both directions. It is a much different technique than the hand, without nearly as much control or versatility, but it's good for some things.

I have played strap, chain and direct over the years and I notice absolutely no difference in feel or action between any of them. It just depends on how you have things adjusted. I converted these pedals from chain to strap because I got tired of metal grease getting everywhere.
