I just bought the new Mapex Raven Set, AAX hats, 6 crashes, 2 rides, a China....and these. They are by far the best part of my set. I got these pedals as well as the Mapex Raptors to try both. I am used to Pearls' "heavy" Powershifter series. The Mapex are much like the Pearls in the sense they are heavy and pack a lot of punch. So I anchored the Axis down and had a go. Hated them, but I said to myself, there is absolutely NO way they charge this much for pedals that are terrible. I adjusted the springs as tight as they could go, spent a few hours on them...and I will never go to another pedal as long as Axis keeps their products like this. It is a breeze to do any double pedal combos including a roll for 5 minutes straight...I love these things and as far as build quality...I would let you throw them off an overpass...and im pretty sure it wouldn't break much. I have no complaints...the only possible thing that could be included would be a set of heavier springs, for nearly Six hundred bills, a set of springs wouldn't be too much to ask...great product Axis. Keep up the innovation.

Be careful if your shopping for a pedal, don't just order these based on what other people say they have a verrrryyyy different feel much much much different than iron cobras or pearl eliminators. I'm sure they are good pedals for people who like that direct drive feel but they aren't for everyoneIf you use the heel-toe technique for double kicking its difficult to use. So be for-warned, solid pedals but not for everyone.

Axis X-L2 Longboard Double Pedal

Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I absolutely love my new Axis X-L2 Longboard double pedal! Currently being used as "two individual single pedals" on a double bass midi kit and/also as a double pedal configuration on single bass acoustical drumkits.

I now own "four sets" of "new" top-notch double pedals:
*Pearl Eliminator II
*Tama Iron Cobra (All Chrome Limited Edition Collectors Series, not many of these made)
*Pearl Demon Drives
*Axis X-L2 Longboards

.....The Axis X-L2 Longboards straight-up out performs them all with quiet smoothness, speed, agility, adjustment access, & very light-weight comfortable feel for any style of play. I don't use the Axis beaters that came with them. I often use round wood beaters too. Even with Beater Patches on kick heads, the Axis beaters tend to cause an impressionable "DENT" type place in the heads. I use the Tama Dual-Sided Bass Drum Beaters with beater rod weights (the Nylon side for thicker punch sound in recordings & LOUD musical environments, ..or the felt side for soft warmer needs. From now on, my kick sound will be incorporated with midi technology & ddrum trigger system). These Tama Beaters give just a little more weight to the kick drum chop feel I prefer that works fine for me. I can fly & soar smoothly on these pedals without any unwanted interferences of wobbly offset extension slave rod warping feel ruining the momentum of incredibly fast action. Sometimes extra slaving parts are comparative factors as to why things don't work right or feel good trying to make it happen. I definately prefer playing double bass on two individual surfaces with two individual pedals as opposed to only two in one surface set-up via slave extension parts.... "If you're going to play double bass, why not just play on a double bass drum set-up" and ride the true ride!? I know many factors are involved with that reason why we use double bass pedal rigs for single bass..

The Axis X-L2 Longboards, either as individual pedals or as a double slave type pedal set-up are Fantastic!!! "Get Them Now!" via Musician's Friend.

My other double pedals are great in their own ways too & the purposes they serve, but the action to make it all happen best is with the Axis X-L2 Longboards! (period)

Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

I recently got these pedals for my birthday after seeing that Shannon Lucas uses them. All I have to say is wow. I had never had true double bass pedals and my only real experience with double bass is a pair of demon Drivers that happened to be owned by another drummer i was playing with at a show. After comparing the two now all I can say is if your going to clean hits and ludicrous speeds this one is for you, the Demon Drivers might look nice but unless your really heavy footed your not going to get good results. 5* for speed, 5* for sheer awesomeness...

Great pedals!!!

Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

Great pedals!!! I highly recomend these to anyone who plays consistant doublebass 200 bpm and over. My only minor complaint with these is that it is very difficult to do heel toe with these unless you move the beaters about 7 or 8" away from the bass drum head. However, these pedals are so smooth that i learned how to do heels up at around 230 bpm on my first day using them. If you are looking to dramatically improve your speed and endurance with double bass then these are a must!

      Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      Switched over to Axis pedals from Speed Cobras. I think now I understand why all the death metal guys use the longboard pedals; it takes way less energy to play double bass at 200 BPM or above. I have been playing on them two weeks now and while for me I can't hit as hard with them, the hits are more consistent especially with my left foot which is weaker than my right. My only complaint is that it SEEMS to me harder to do double strokes but that could just be my current settings on the pedal.

      The fastest, lightest most diverse pedal ever built!

      By Alex Yusko-leblanc

      from Dover, NH

      Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      If you want a pedal that will dominate any other pedal out there these are for you. These pedals give you an advantage that no other pedal will. The direct drive linkage and drive shaft alone make these pedals better than any other but the sturdy construction and light (but powerful) playability blow all other pedals out of the water. Having played for 15 years I have had the chance to use MANY different pedals and there's no question which is the top of the line. If you have a brain in your head you will buy these amazing pedals and start shredding.

      Review

      By BiGG Perm

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      When I got these pedals, I was super excited because I had heard how fast and smooth these were. They are just that, wicked fast and super smooth. However, they have a few quality issues. Mainly the fact that, for being such an expensive pedal, nothing will stay tightened for more than 10 minutes unless you crank on the screws. The problem there is that, the screws require allen wrenches. It's really hard to crank on an allen wrench with out bending, snapping or breaking it or stripping the head. I replaced all of the screws with more durable ones with traditional philip's heads and these pedals are now works of art. I say, buy these but, make sure you're prepared to upgrade parts ASAP.

      Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      Well, simply put this might be one of the best pedal s that i have ever used. there easy,fast,and they have great attack. The price tag is VERY big but still if your looking for a pedal that you want to keep for a long time you get what you pay for. This is coming from a person who came off of using a PDP 402 double pedal, it was hard getting used to the ease you get when you use it compared to my others but still there worth the time you put in. you might hate them for a bit......but there very well worth it!!

      Pedals from Heaven!!!

      Comments about Axis Longboard X Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      I ordered these pedals after i saw some of my favorite drummers (George Kollias, Nick Barker)using them. They are absolutely amazing. Never have i played on a pedal that was so fast and accurate. They are almost too fast! I have played Iron Cobra pedals for years. Switching over threw me off a little, but once i got the hang of these pedals, i was flying on them! The cool thing is, they can be hooked directly with the ekit triggers from axis! Get these pedals!!!
