It's a rip-off of the Sonor Twin EFX.

They're also lying when they say it's by DW. (Although on a later page they say it's by Universal Percussion) The Sonor pedal costs over 500 bucks. No way would DW make one for just over a hundred.

This copy will probably break in two weeks. I have the Sonor and it the most engineered pedal I've ever seen. There's a reason why it costs so much (besides the fact that it's a Sonor)

What is that? Is it like a Dualist?

Wonder how much Universal $ell's this to dealers for. This could probably be made in China for $100 or less. With most all drum gear, there are at least 2 others taking a cut 'after' the manufacture, before consumers have to bend-over at the sales counter.

Expect lesser tolerances, cheaper materials. It'll feel 'decent' new and for a little while until it gets some usage, then will wear noticably-quick and get sloppy. As an example, I'm sure the beater shaft's are not hardened steel and with a little 'heated' playing they'll bend, (like the garbage Ludwig issueswith their Accent line hardware).
