    Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I bought this pedal because I was finding it difficult to do 'certain' patterns with the single Bass Drum. At first I found the slave pedal to be hard to adjust. It was too 'soft'. I wanted more resistance. After playing around a bit, I got that fixed.

    I broke my Tibia, and potential ACL on my right knee, just hours before a gig. While I did play the gig - because the show must go on - I took less equipment that night. Still, I needed the Bass Drum. No way to go without it. I also teach, and if I have an operation I may not be able to play the right pedal at all for months. This should work fine to keep me teaching and gigging with my 'opposite' foot.

    Sure, I have been playing just a single Bass Drum for almost 30 years. Sure it is a challenge to incorporate the second foot. (I still don't have the foot paradiddle down!) However, I am learning to play super cool beats and am looking forward to the expansion of my repertoire as I continue to improve.

    Now if I can just get by without that surgery...

    Excellent product. I recommend it highly.

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          This pedal is pretty sweet, i bought it online and could not wait to get this pedal. After what felt like years, this pedal came and it was stunning. The u joints have ZERO play in them. Also, the U joints are huge and are way better than any other U-joints on the market today. The pedal is adjustable and can suit lots of styles by adjusting the feel of the pedal with the variable drive lever, which changes the feel of the pedal from light to medium or heavy (i like it in the middle along with most owners of these pedals).The pedals are also super responsive and keep up with your feet while playing fast speeds. i played some songs where i just could not generate enough speed with my old Mapex 500s but when in got these,m i had no problem keeping up. Axis thought ahead on these pedals and put 6 pieces of velcro on the bottom of each pedal.Once you put these pedals on carpet, you feel like you're going to rip up the carpet in the process in taking the pedals off the carpet. The only bad thing about these pedals are the adjustments with allen keys. When i tried to put on the felt pieces on the beaters, one of the adhesive pieces came off and i was forced to use the plastic or cork surfaces. These beaters are also really hard to set them to hit the bass drum flat on because the nut comes undone and the head of the beater moves around because it is so sensitive . Also, to make some minor adjustments on the pedal (U joint Length etc) you have to use different sized allen keys to make the adjustment which is pretty annoying but is a minor problem. In conclusion, i would totally buy these pedals. They will last you a long time due to the solid aluminum construction on the pedal. I would HIGHLY recumbent these pedals who is willing to spend a lot of money for a good quality pedal.

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          Such an amazing smooth, fine, controllable pedal. Perfect for the genres I excel in and even for pretty much any purpose -- I use them for every genre I come across. But keep in mind, do NOT have anything on your bass drum batter besides a simple impact patch. If you have something like Gibraltar's click pads or basically anything thicker than a simple clear impact patch, your bass drum will become terribly quiet (This is with the sonic hammer beaters. The regular Axis beaters are okay with the other patches like the click pad). Besides that, I love EVERYTHING about this pedal and would recommend it above all. Also, if you are coming from a chain drive, be prepared to not hit as hard, as it is far more sensitive, but this is not a down side. It took me a day to get used to and now it's perfect! (Owned for about 2 months)

          A Terrific Double Pedal!

          By TIM

          from Whittier, California

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          As a midlife change for me, no red Porche, I love my wife of 35 yrs, the list things that ache seems to grow, but I've had a good year at work, so am treating myself to the second drum kit of my life. Am testing my friend's rack mounted Tama Starclassic B/B 5 pc kit with wood-rimmed S.L.P. snare as he recovers with a new knee. My first purchase was this dbl kick pedal 2 wks ago. Great versatility, both pedals VERY reactive, so lightweight, long footboards, supports all styles of play. Have been rehearsing with one for 2.5 years, so decided to buy one. Once over the sticker shock (I CAN afford it!), I am pleased with this first piece of hardware. Over time, I will adjust it with the multiple fine tune subtle options that are there. Jimbo at the Brea store was real helpful, great website for Guitar Ctr, free shpg to my store, nice discounts got it into (the high end of) my range. Am VERY happy with this purchase.

          too high

          By Gary

          from Murfreesboro,Tn.

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          it's all that and a bag of chips! playing since '65 (I'm old), started playing on trash can tops, old ones at that!, in south nashville, but folks to keep young drummers coming up after us the technology gets better but the price higher. As i said, I'm old, money no problem, but even I'm not going to pay THAT price for a pair of foot boards. No way, but as I said, I started on a used trash can tops! Been with Pearl since '78, Zildjian since '69, but my wallet since 1955 (birth). ALWAYS give your old set away to a young drummer,ALWAYS. It's your duty. I keep some of my old cymbals, but never the drums. Jusy say'in.......

          Great pedal

          By Noname

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I've had this pedal for a while now and have had enough time and experience with it to say it's totally worth it. I upgraded from a PDP somethinganother pedal that took a lot of force to get going, this one is different. With a fraction of the force used on the old one I get a louder, more powerful hit. I haven't had to put any real maintenance on it yet, which is good. I kept reading on these and the MF.com reviews that everyone had to constantly keep it up, but a google search said otherwise. In short, it's great. A fast, durable pedal that can work for any one. If you play fast or just don't want to waste energy this is top choice.

          Can Not Play Without Them!

          By Kane

          from Rutland VT

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          First Of All I Want To Touch On The Customer Service Aspect! Small Co And Still Have Time To Chat. Its Not Other Co. Like Well Lets Say I Call The Other Co. T&P I Still Buy There Products But Im Very Dissapointed Wih There Customer Service And Parts Ordering. With Axis If Its A Smaller Part They Have Just Mailed It To Me And Thats After I Shot The S-- T With The Guy Who Makes The Pedal On The Phone For A Half Hour. Ok Enough WIth That.. The Pedal Is Outstanding In All Aspects Except 1 The Hammers And That Can Easily Be Fixed By Walking In GC And Buying 2 DW Beaters. Problem Solved All The Extra Thump You Need. Springs All the Way Tight And VDL A 1/8" From The Bottom So The Pedal Is Spongy And You Will Hit 220bpm By Just Messing Around. Proper Leg Strength And Balance Provided. And They Are Very Accurate Remember the Days Of The Snake When You Could Just Blast Off And Be A Little Sloppy. Not With The Axis Pedal You Better Mean The Stroke You Throw. Dont Get Me Wrong If The Music Is Loud Enough And You Flying You Might Get Away with Skipping A Stroke. So all In All I Love the Axis Longs And I Will Eventually Try The Demons Because They Look Cool As Hell But I Will Buy Them And I Will Figure Out Whether I Like Them Or Not. My Guitar Center Is Pretty Descent With Trade Ins So I Dont Mind. Ohh One Other Thing I Dont Like There Special Order. I Tend To Buy Alot More If I Touch It First.

          This Is The Best Pedal On The Market

          By Jim

          from Ohio

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          First Off I Like To Say Is That I Thought This Was Another Gimmick To Sell Drummers To Make More Money. This Is Not The Case This Time. I Was Playing DW9000 Pedals Since The Day They Came Out And That Was 6 Years ago. I Thought Those Were The Best Pedal You Could Use And They Were In till You Reach A Point That You Could Not Surpass. I Did A Lot Of Research On The Axis Long Boards And Everyone Is Right About These That It Does Take A Lot Of Time To Get Use To Them (These Are Unlike Any Other Pedal Out There) But Once You Have It Down You Will Be Amazed Of How Much Better Your Playing Ability Becomes. The Best Thing I Love About This Pedal Is You Can Basically Adjust Every Single Piece On This Pedal Which Makes It That Much More. This Is A Very Very Smooth Pedal and Very Light Weight which Make Your Feet Fly. I Would Recommend This Pedal To Serious Drummers If You Can Afford It Then Buy It-- Another Recommendation Is If You Like Drum Racks And Can afford It Then Buy The Pearl DR-503C ICON 3-Sided Drum Rack with Curved Bars--- Trust Me.

          Comments about Axis Longboard A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          i have had the axis AL-2 longbord double pedals for about two weeks now and i love them. the only problem is that the sonic hammers tend to slip at loud fast volumes and they are easly replaced to make the pedals amazing. the feel of the pedals is great, and the longbord makes it super easy to do heal toe. the pedals are by far the best i have ever played and i would recomend them to anyone who plays fast double bass. thease pedals make it so easy.
