Axis

The legendary Axis, a head-pounding marvel.

The Axis A2 Double Pedal boasts an improved drive-shaft linkage specifically designed to maintain the all-ball-bearing action which sets Axis double pedals apart. Patented variable drive lever lets you get the feel of any type of pedal with one simple adjustment. Beater-forward design substantially increases power without feeling heavier, for more speed and punch from both heel-up and heel-down players. The universal joints feature a "zero backlash" design which transfers the power from the slave side to the primary side with the maximum torque, rebound, and sensitivity.

Features

  • Improved drive-shaft linkage
  • All ball-bearing action
  • Variable drive lever for radical changes of feel
  • Beater-forward design for more power

When I first got these pedals they took some time to get used to. I play the Iron Cobras so I was used to lots of power, but these give you almost none, unless you play with triggers which these are basically made for. The speed though is unreal. If you have the foot speed you can do 250 and up easily, which is good for what I play (Extreme Metal). They are also very light which is a plus.Now let me talk about the bad thing. When I got these the slave pedal loosened almost immediately causing the footboard to hit the plate on every stroke. I tried fixing this multiple times but it kept on loosening. After a while of this seemingly irreversible problem I just sold them and switched back to the Iron Cobras. I'm sure I could have done more but I don't really have the time to keep fixing a problem which shouldn't happen in the first place. Bottom line: If you play extreme metal (which these are basically meant to be used for) and use triggers, then this pedal is probably the one you want (though I haven't tried Trick yet) but if you want something that doesn't have an insane price tag and can give you the power you need, I suggest buying the Iron Cobras or maybe a Pearl Eliminator.

linchpindrums, these suck..

I used these for a month and they broke three times. The springs are wacked out, and the action is horrible. Plus they are way overpriced. TAMA Iron Cobra or any yamaha pedal...Read complete review

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I am new to drumming, and this pedal came with the drum set i bought. And i absolutely love this pedal! its simple yet great quality! everything is tight and there is no play or jiggling in between the bolts and parts etc, its exactly how it should be and exactly what is looks like in the picture! You can also adjust anyway you want, the height of the pedals, how far the beaters are from the bass drum head, etc. its really a great pedal! it can fit anyones playing style and has definitely helped me to be able to play double bass better than i thought i would!

    Good Pedals

    By Zach Everett

    from Williamsport, PA

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I recomend these to anyone wishing to play fast, there are more pedals out there but these things have speed to them
    A family member gave me a pair of these that were over ten years old. They still funtion extremely well. Very sensitive and I have no issue with power. Though you might want to try them before you buy them.
    A little expensive, but if you have the money, do it

    they're ok

    By TheMilkMan

    from Michigan

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    these pedals are light, and pretty fast. however, they are sorely lacking in terms of power. ive found that iron cobras are just as fast, if not faster, and much more powerful. the universal joint in top notch though, easily the best ive ever seen. try it before you buy it

    Don't buy from this site

    By anon--06.f

    from Canada

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    Great product, terrible website.I purchased these AXIS pedals and on the same day I received them from UPS, I got an email offer from them that would've saved me $75.00. Upon emailing them, they said that I was not eligible for the offer even though they advertise a 45 day price guarantee on the website.I recommend the pedals, just get them from a better website or go to a music store in person.

    epic pedals

    By edrummer

    from santa cruz, cali

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I bought these pedals used on craigslist from someone who said he bought them five years before. they are still solid and fast, the adjustments are awesome, you can change the feel instantly, and the only thing wrong with them are two of the bearings are wearing out but the pedals are still fully operational and awesome

    Axis pedals

    By Trevor-wIQLy

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    These pedals react instantly to your movement. It takes some getting used to. You get a lot more out of it with less work. They are very fast, and have as much power as any other pedals. All you need to do is take a little time to adjust it (took me about 5 min. to get as much power as a dw 5000) and then practice on them for a while and fine tune your adjustments. Your feet move and you hear bass drums. It's like there are no pedals there. Absolutely dead quiet and no play anywhere.

    Great Double pedal

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I use these pedals in my metal band a long with DW 5000's and i find these definately have a better feel. They are unbelievably fast, light and responsive. As far as techniques like heal toe i works great. Pretty pricy tho, that is the only downside

    Best Pedals Out There

    By axisman2525

    from e-town PA

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    This pedals are the best you can get. They are priced very high but also meet every standard no matter how high. These pedals are very quiet, quick and very adjustable. The pedals may feel a little funny at first but you get use to them and just improve from there. If you have the money get the longboards but if you can't you loss nothing from getting these.

    Amazing pedal!

    By Ronnie.B

    from Stockholm, Sweden

    Comments about Axis A Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    This is the most amazing pedal I've ever played with. It's so smooth, fast and powerful it's almost ridiculous. I've played Mapex, Pearl, Gibraltar, DW and Tama pedals before an none, and I mean NONE of those brands and pedals come even close to the Axis. This pedal works "with" you, not against you as some pedals do.Get one now, it's worth it!!!
