If you're on a budget, new to double bass pedals or just new to drumming altogether, it's a good choice in pedals. It's constructed well and doesn't feel as cheap as other pedals in its price range. I wouldn't recommend it to a veteran player looking for the bells and whistles, but like I've said again and again, it does the job.
Has all the features you would expect from a double bass pedal. Nothing fancy.
The quality of it isn't bad, the felt beaters are kind of nicer, they don't tear up the head as bad. I definitely recommend getting a drum patch regardless of what pedal you use, but for this one especially. My only qualm would be that a lot of the lugs that hold it together like to get loose after a while, especially on the beaters. I get a lot of slippage from the left pedal, but playing on concrete is most likely why it's as much of an issue as it is.
All in all, I got a good price for this pedal, it's nicer than other low budget pedals I've had which were around the same price. I wasn't looking for anything special in this pedal, after not having played for two years I figured it'd be a good way to not break the bank. I will look into replacing it in the not too distant future though.

I must be the only one with a bad experience.... Fist pedal I got the second pedal was stripped pretty much out of the box. Exchanged it got second pedal checked everything, played it twice and the second pedal stripped again!! I'm not a seasoned drummer I'm a guitar player, just bought drums for my studio. I don't use a double kick very much. I figured two times was enough I exchanged it the third time for a different pedal, see what happens this time.

      I bought the product for a family member and they absolutely love it. I am a novice at drums, but I love it as well. It's really fun to use and plays a lot better than the pedal we had before.

            I am just a novice at drums. I wasn't looking for these until I found them at a great price. The pedals were easy to setup and added a little more pop to the bass drum. I am very pleased with this purchase and believe everyone else would benefit from these pedals. To me this was a no brainer purchase.

              I bought this to add a little more versatility to my studio/rehearsal Roland Drum kit. This double bass kick pedal is awesome at a great price. My son, the real drummer gave it a thumbs up and couldn't believe the price I paid.

                I bought this for my son, who has been playing for a few months. I know NOTHING about drums, but am very mechanical. I thought it was strange that there was no photo on the box, or instructions in the box to assist in assembly. I contacted MAPEX thru their website and have no response after a week. No instructions available on MAPEX web site either. Bottom line: GREAT value for the price and it works fine.
