They look solid and loaded with features. But it's DW which means it will be overpriced tot he extreme. I see DW failing here much like Pearl did with the Demon Drives. The direct drive market is a market dominated by Trick, Axis, and all those other Direct Drive-specific companies. Drummers looking for a quality DD pedal will lean toward Trick or Axis regardless. The only way DW can pull this off, in my opinion, is by pricing competitively, which we have kind of see them do with their drums lately. Doubt they'll budge on these pedals

I had dinner with Jim Rupp Saturday night of the NAMM show, what a great guy. I will go out of my way to support Rupp's Drums.

Wow - and people already complain about Pearl's $699 Demon double pedal. I hope they sell a million of these things ;)

rupss price for the a21 derek roddy signatures is 849.38$
european market has them at 1195 (1641.33$)

so therefore the new DW crap will be close to 2000$ for me.
Who the hell will buy that shit? They might pop up in a store in 2015 over here i reckon.

So basically for a 150ish dollars less you get an established direct drive pedal with triggers on it.

Wait until you see my full review of the new Malleus direct drive pedal. It is next level.

For a little background...I have one of the original Axis double pedals that I bought when it first came out.. I own, or have owned, the Trick, another pair of Axis A Longboards as well as the Demon Drive.

I also work in the aerospace industry and my customer base is CNC machine shops. I have been in and around them for over 30 years. I hang and get drunk with machinists, engineers and machine shop owners.

The Malleus truly is the best of the machined, direct drive bunch. Imagine if someone actually evaluated all of the direct drives on the market, made a pedal and then solicited opinions of dozens of working players on that pedal.

Then Imagine that a Version 2 of the pedal comes out, with all of the best features incorporated into it.

That is the Malleus.

DW's attempt at this is lame compared to what is going on at Malleus.

Looks like a cheese grater!

All jokes aside, I'm sure it is a highly constructed pedal.

I think the pedal looks great and would really like to try it out. In regards to the price, I have been quoted $799 for the double version by a reputable dealer.

Side note: these were developed at least in part with Bob Gatzen coming out of the PDP B.O.A. technology. These are way overpriced IMHO.

Overpriced aside; has anyone played one of these yet???

While I appreciate the functionality,design, craftsmanship and the American made of this beast, it would seriously have to blow me away to separate me from that much money for a pedal.

Does anyone else notice that marketing in (insert name of pursuit here) has gone over the top? $300 hockey sticks, $500 drivers, and now $1,000 drum pedals. What has happened to us that we are such suckers for tech and high prices in the pursuit of improvement. I own several $300 hockey sticks ( insert insult here) and my shot still sucks yet I bought them believing that it would make a difference. John Bonham smoked everyone on a squeaky Speed King. What is wrong with our current culture that we believe that practice and skill can be bought if your wallet is deep enough? Geesh.
PS Waiting for these to drop down to $850 so I can finally master Good Times, Bad Times.

I agree that these pedals are way overpriced and that people tend to think that buying nice gear might improve their playing.

On another note, I hear this all the time about Bonham and that song. I love Bonham but I could play that song when I was 18 on a beat up Camco pedal (28 years ago).

The truth is, that stuff is nowhere near the current state of the art in bass drum playing. From single bass guys like JoJo and Vinnie to double bass monsters like Virgil and Kollias, they all learned from Bonham and others and took it to the next level.

Just got pics, posting Malleus review before weekend...

Don't worry, someone will buy these thinking they are the magic answer to their double bass needs and hate them because they wont be, then sell them for a more affordable price. Just give it time.
