Just imagine playing "Immigrant Song" on one of those pedals. . . give it a try.


Your face would explode.

Honestly I'm afraid to try it, it probably does everything the inventor says it does. I'm not yet ready to make the switch after putting so many years into traditional pedals.

You can simulate the movement right now. Lean forward feet planted, raise heel (keep ball planted) and drop. Notice how anchord your center of gravity feels.

Once you raise the balls of your feet 'off' of something (even slightly), your floating for a split second, when you come back down you have to adjust, or you 'have' adjusted your upper body forward or backward.

With balls of your feet always planted, you never float, your always solid. You do have to lean forward and this takes some decent abdominal muscles, which you would no doubt develop.

You would need 'Smart HH' to make this purely satisfying.

Everbody's right about the crappy website. But I have tried them and they are great! If you learn to use the properly you don't even need dubble bass anymore. Those things are verry fast and easy. But I wouldn't buy them from that website.
