Default Vex double Pedal???

Hi drummers!

I'm a beginer and i'm interest to buy a double pedal. I see one made by VEX :

http://vexdrums.com/pedals.htm#

It looks great.
Did someone try this pedal and what do you think of it?
Thanks

Sébastien

I own one of these and did a large review with photos. Its better than some pedals costing twice as much. Do the search function and you can find my review.

Tu es français ?

France ou Québec ?

The GRUNTERSDAD VEX pedal thread look like have been archived because these nothing in the search result. Sorry Sébastien.

All in all from what I heard it a good pedal with plenty of ajustment, smooth & responsive but I can comment further because I never had my feet on them.

I wasn't as impressed, but it's OK for $100USD. A bit more on the used market, and you can get one of the usual suspects (Iron Cobra, Eliminator, Flying Dragon, etc) in well-used condition.

I find it difficult to adjust, with far fewer options than my IC's. It arrived unplayable, requiring multiple adjustments to get it to operate at all. I can't get a bit of a dead spot out of the bottom of the travel. It doesn't seem to like loose settings, and I have a lot of trouble getting both pedals to feel similar. I like the beaters, and the smoothish footboards. It seems fairly solid, although some of the castings look a little sloppy.

I have one, and I think it's plenty good for a beginner to a moderate player. Yes you may need to "play" with it out of the box. I would also recommend tightening everything first off, ie any hex screws. I found the only "weak" link in mine is the soft metal splines that are used to adjust the beater position. If you have these tight once you adjust them to your liking, I think you'll be fine. Remember folks, these pedals cost $100. They are not IC, or Eliminators. BUT... they are nice pedals at an intermiediate or beginner level. I would love to have the top end pedals, but I can't possibly justify the cost VS the frequency of the music I play.
