Comments about Dixon Cajon Pedal Plus:
I received this pedal in March. I used it on average once per week. By early June, it was broken. The cable frayed, then snapped. The plastic pulley and the metal part to which it was attached both wore down. The pedal was simply not properly designed to deal with the rigors of even light use in a percussive kit.
Comparing this to the reviews for other pedals, you will see that Gibraltar appears to fare much worse than this one (some customers say it broke within two practices). LP's pedal gets average reviews. The Meinl seems to have very good reviews so far. This is telling for me, because the beater was so soft on the Dixon that it failed to make a good sound even right out of the box. I had to replace it with another beater, and I chose the Meinl foam rubber, flat beater. The Meinl beater alone improved the sound so incredibly that my band stared wide-eyed at the difference. Based on this experience, I will likely spend a little more to get the Meinl pedal, which I am hoping holds up far longer than this one.
As far as performance goes, the Dixon is a bit sluggish. It caused me to have to over-anticipate strikes, especially when playing double or triple beats. This became very frustrating and noticeable.
