Initiating hijack prevention....i think the Deamon styling is a little tacky.
I liked your explanation of things on this. Especially how things can be too perfect.My take on it: it is just another choice. Pluses versus minus do not out weigh the change for me especially at that price. What the pedal lacks to me is the natural feel of rebound. The beater comes back it doesn't necessary bounce back it is just there perfectly waiting for you. There is no "grab" or "swing" to it. It is almost too perfect sort of like Pro-tools and the way some producers quantize everything. If that is what you like, then this is the pedal for you. But as it stands I need something that "breathes" a little bit more, but that's style just as much as anything.
I hear what you're saying...more to the point of that post....(an assumption due to my Axis' feel and others I have tried in GC and other's kits) is that the rebound is not the Demon so much as it is the feel of any direct-drive.Possibly, but I do feel the beater "returns" back with the Demon. It doesn't bounce back as a stick would when played in your hand.
I couldn't agree more. One can't just sit down and instantaneously be amazingly faster with any given pedal...even if the pedal was designed for speed. It would take an adjustment period, even if it were days, to get the feel right. Took me a couple months (truly) to get used to, and effectively, surpass the comfort-level of playing compared to what I was playing previous to my AL-2's.One thing I've learned about pedals and pedal settings is this.
. It would take me a month to really evaluate the pedal myself.
Swap-out your bearings with "Ninja Bearings'. Its supposed to be 'the big thing' on Demon Drive.I've seen the promo video, and really, these pedals look amazing but, I own the eliminators and the price for the demon drive, you know, it makes me think about enjoying my pedals a little bit more.
I don't need new pedals for now, but of course, if I could, I would buy the demon drives.
Anyway, I live so far from The States that I believe here, the demon drive cost will be around 1000 USD, so... that gives you a clue about my way of thinking.
Now, for what I read, I see that the people that tried them out say exactly what I expected: you get what you play (or somethng alike). As for me, that is exactly what I need, but my wallet is not pleased with that, that's all
