Default Re: futz pedals

Hi there. I use a pair of futz pedals while I am currently on a study year abroad and don't have access to my kit... or a kit of any kind...

Anyway, the pedal comes with a circular pad of foam which slots into the underside of the pedal, and whether or not you have that in dictates how much noise is made. If you have it in, it is probably quieter than a snare practice pad, it is quite amazing actually.

If you take it out, it makes a plastic click which is somewhat louder, still nothing like an actual bass drum though. I would recommend them, but they certainly highlight weak points in your foot technique, so be prepared for some proper practice.

Good luck.

I have a pair myself and love them. I just sold a pair to a military guy stationed in Iraq with a couple practice pads. Now he can practice double bass AND fight terrorism! ;-)
