Looks like they just reinvented the old Ghost(which was a superb pedal by the way)
Yup, SPEED KING is a compression spring, did/done OK, but extension springs have always ruled when it comes to BD pedals. I watched the other vids, this DIXON pedal is actually a torsion coil spring, not compression. GHOST was a torsion coil, albeit a flat fatty that was never going to break, the result was terrible feedback vibration.Isn't Ludwigs Speed King a compression model? They seem to have done OK.
I tried it. Looks nice and well built (though bulky for my lightweight taste). Didn't feel any different from most pedals I tested at NAMM, even though I spent some time adjusting it. Which might be a good or a bad thing.DIXON just released their Precision Coil pedals. They look gorgeous and have an interesting design. Anyone have any experience with DIXON drums or hardware?
Ah. The dixon joints are much better than the 9000 which is more a pin and block design.Really! I don't know much about u-joints but have had bad experiences with play on that type, which were on my DW 9000 pedals. The Trick design has given me much better luck but I haven't tried to suss out differences between different models of the same type presented here.
Agreed. But they seem committed to succeed and had a lot of nice, very well built drums at NAMM. They cooperate with artists, drum builders and engineers to push their craft, not just copying anymore.It's just hard for me to get past the "beginner" label I've associated with them.
