Where did you see the hihat?Pedals look beautifully machined. The legs on the HiHat look interesting, curious to hear some long term reports on that. And Jeff you were right, holy sky high prices batman!
I'd say that's a fair and probably accurate theory Odd. His designs are really nice and the machining is insanely impressive! I also agree with the thought of "if youre a speed demon or do a ton of double bass" that linkage would be an incredible upgrade.Sounds like he knows his stuff.
To be fair, the prices are probably just a result of probably not being a very big company.
Considering how little I actually use my left BD pedal the drive shaft isn't really an issue for me, but if I was that speed demon metal guy I'd probably do an ugrade.
Some of us are a bit conservative, but reality is that all our old time heroes were pretty progressive and always looking for new stuff.
I have the sneaky suspicion that those pedals wouldn't make me any better of a player.
With that said, I wish the person making them and his business much success. I hope he can find a market.
If it were me and I had some patents on some things like this, I'd try to get a licencing deal with someone like DW.
