Had these pedals for about a week now and lemme tell you these are insane!!!! Ive been looking for a pair of direct drive pedals for awhile now but theyre always so expensive i came across these once while i was shopping at a sam ash and i was blown away i had to buy them. When i finally bought them and continued to use them im never going back these pedals are amazing especially for the price. Theyre extremely responsive and have a pretty long board to it as well so you can have any technique and go to town haha! I play death metal so these things are a dream best purchase so far!
