I have plaid many different pedals in my life. Since the 80's are over and most of the stages are too small for two bass drums I am playing a double pedal which is now for about 24 years. I have played all the major brand pedals which you can have in mind, made in Germany, Corea, Japan and the USA. This is probably the fastest and easiest tension maintaining pedal in the world. Never experienced that you play different on a Monday ight after a hard working day compared to Sathurday morning? Easy with the Trick pedal. You just maintain your "tension of the day need" on a screw for each pedal individualy. It is expensive, but it is worth the money.
