Default The B.O.A Pedal System

Anyone seen this? It looks really interesting.

I've seen it too but I've never played it. I like the idea of no springs but I wonder how you adjust the tension.

It looks like a really cool pedal and I want to try it but they don't carry it anywhere near me.

It looks intriguing but I am skeptical of the durability and longevity of the bending pivot. I would like to see a long-term test to see how well that holds up. Otherwise, It looks interesting. I like the fact that it is completely silent.

These feel really good, and are pretty nicely adjustable.
I like a really tight spring on my pedal, and I was able to get that feel from the BOA.
The hat stand felt great too.

The down side is these are pretty pricey.

I could see the price being high if it had the DW name and logo on it, but with it being under the PDP moniker, it seems like it's more lost in the shuffle of pedals and hat stands available out there with little promotion since they have been out for about 4 or 5 years.

Marco Minnimen is in ads with them now, so maybe it will raise the profile of these.
They are a good product.

The price does seem like a bit much. They never stock them here either.

I have one but could never dial it in to where I wanted it. It has a rep for the foot board breaking, too. If you one a great one for the money, check out the Sonor 473: Super adjustable, powerful and fast. Under $100.
