That looks like something I’d invent LOL. You see the real sticks - I wonder how long they last. You could always buy one to keep in case your break both arms-then you can still play. The singer can use this to replace the drummer. Rush can reform with one or the other playing this foot drum. I hate it already-ban the dang thing. If you only you could motorize it like bumper cars that would be a bang.
I saw one of these on craigslist a while back and was tempted. It had a nice natural finish like the one in this video, which is also a good usage demo. I think it would be pretty cool to play this with the feet and keyboard with the hands. I think that could have an overall percussive feel from a playing standpoint, but with chords and melodies.
