Default Drum Pedal Help/Axis Al-2

Hey every one!

I have an Iron Cobra double pedal right now and it's just not cutting it. Its way too heavy and they have no bounce.

I was looking into buying the Axis Al-2s and I wanted to hear what other drummers thought of the pedal.

I did look into the DW pedals and I've played the 5000s but I wasn't blown away by them, and I've herd bad things about them so I want to stay away from DWs

Some one help!!!

I've had mine for about a year and a half and I can get quite a bit of speed out of them, its not enough. I recently messed with the foot board and beater angle and that made it worse. So im looking into new pedals

I have the Al2's and in my opinion they are fantastic, very light and very responsive. The sonic hammers which the AL2's come with make the pedal feel quite heavy though despite the heavy duty springs

Try a search on the Axis and you'l find oodles of info on opinions, goods and bads, and whatever else.

Long story short, you've got to get your feet on them and see how you like em'. Even then, it might not be the best experience right out of the box. Like a new car, you've got to get used to some of the differences from your last one.

DW 9000, Yamaha Flying Dragon, Trick 1-V, Pearl Eliminators, Axis XL-2/AL-2 are all amazing pedals.

I am waiting on my AL-2s right now, looking forward to their arrival.

I've tried them all and while I felt they were all pretty decent pedals, I chose to go with Axis (AL-2CB). I'm just waiting for them to arrive - should be another week or two.

Again, that was MY preference so try whatever pedals you can b/c it's a very important piece of gear and you need to make sure they are the right fit and feel for you.

Check the "Getting New Pedals" thread under this section of the forum and you will find a wealth of information/opinions about all of these pedals mentioned.

Hope that helps,

Mike
