Default Atlas Pedals - Independent pedalboard height/beater angle adjustment?

Curious to know. Looks by using an allen key, you should be able to rotate the beater holder, since it's a circular bar.

Yes, that is correct. Many of the adjustments on the Atlas pedal require allen wrenches which, in my opinion, is not the best. Tension lug heads are far easier. This pedal uses both but there are too many that require an allen wrench. I believe there are even two different sizes of allen screws.

I was looking at it from the perspective of independent beater and footboard adjustment, which I think is a huge plus for a pedal. I remember wrestling with the settings on my Eliminator for hours, trying to achieve a perfect balance between the two. Not too sure if that would work by turning the cam on the pedal.

FYI... The Tama Speed Cobra allows for separate beater/footboard angle adjustments. What a killer feature.

I have the Atlas classic single pedal. The footboard angle, beater angle, and spring tension are all adjusted with a drum key. The only allen heads are where the chain/strap attach to the footboard. BTW, I'm using the supplied strap....and loving this pedal. It is so smooth.

I tried the Tama Speed Cobra in a store! Heel-toe worked very nicely!

I want to try the Ludwig. But they aren't available where I live :(

Then again, nothing is available where I live.
