Default Giant step triple pedal - anyone played it ?

Hi,
Did anyone played that pedal ? I'm considering buying this monsterly expensive pedal, but there aren't any in my country to try. So your opinions will be most welcome.
Thanks

Do you mean the 'Giant Step Middle Pedal' ? If so, measure the comfortable distance between your two feet and keep in mind this and other pedals like it have a minimum distance between foot boards, which may turn out to be uncomfortably large for you.

I don't know what that min is, but its definitely larger than a standard double pedal.

No I mean the GTRP 3 triple pedal (see image).
The right beater is operated normally, the left one by either the heel of the right foot or the left foot.
It seems like a very good idea, enabling you to use it as a single pedal, double pedal or twin-effect which frees the left foot for the hi-hat (that's the reason I'm considering it razorx, this can't be done otherwise as far as I know).
But I don't know if it's good, and if it's comfortable to use it as a normal pedal (without the heel thing) which I guess I'd want to do some of the time.

I dont see the point in saying that.

tis a very silly thing to say.


Its just a pedal, and it opens up more playing and setup options.

Just ask Aahz, AmbA, or even Bill Bruford.

I use a twin efx pedal to the left of my hi-hat. It's great for Thomas Lang type stuff but I would never use the twin efx as my primary pedal. The heel "pedal" portion makes it annoying to use as a regular pedal. Check out the Dualist Pedal Triple version.
