          I bought 2 of these pedals in Sept 2012. They are easy to use and really help build foot strength and speed. They are pretty quiet, so quiet that if you are using them while drumming on a practice pad they are hard to hear but you can make them a louder with either the disks you can purchase or just make your own from a harder material.

          I was torn between getting these and a bass drum practice pad but these are easier to transport and quieter.

          I had a problem with one of the pedals becoming noisy/squeaky and having a sticky action. I got in touch with Mark at Hansenfutz and he quickly repaired the pedal (cracked tension adjustment cap) and even sent me a couple of the power springs. Great customer service.

          I was happy with these as a practice pedal however one of the first two that I had broke. Mark from Futz did replace it but since then the replacement and my second pedal have both broken. My pedals cracked where the plastic molds around the tension spring.
          I probably could have sent them back and gotten replacements but it wasn't worth the effort. Good idea, bad implementation. I should add that one of my pedals broke when not even being used, the plastic must develop small cracks that finally let go.

                I have not used these things very much even though I've had them like a year and a half. I finally started using them regularly because I can't play much right now.....and one of the spring hinges went out.... So now I have one pedal.. not ideal.

                      My main drawback is that it doesn't feel like a real pedal. without the rebound and weight of a beater it makes it difficult to adapt back to the real thing. Might as well practice with the floor.

                      A good tool to build endurance and work on speed
                      Received the pedal about a week ago and have been using it under my desk at work.
                      Although it does not feel exactly like a real pedal it is an excellent tool to build endurance and strength. I am pleased with the purchase.
                      too soon to tell if it will hold up
                      I feel it is over priced for a plastic pedal.

                      Seriously, this thing is just like the guitar hero pedal. I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but this was not it. The pedal is made of plastic and feels very flimsy. Also, the response is absolutely nothing like a real pedal because it hinges on the heel side rather than the toe side like a real kick. My kit is in storage (I live in an apt) and I can?t always get there to play when I want to. I bought this so, in conjunction with my practice pad, I could at least work on some hand to feet combos. Hammering out rudiments on my pad every day gets really old. For the price I was very dissatisfied and returned immediately upon receiving it. I?ll probably just buy a cheap pedal and a bass drum practice pad. This solution is noisier and more expensive, but it is the only realistic way to practice on the kick without a real bass drum. Save your money.

                      I've had two of these for about 3 months or so. I keep them under my desk at work, and just practice all day while I'm working. I've loved them since the start, and saw a dramatic improvement, quickly, when it came to my speed and endurance. The reason I'm writing this came later: I recently severely sprained an ankle, with shows booked soon. I have been using these extensively to exercise almost nonstop, and am 2-3 weeks ahead of my recovery schedule, and already back on my drums. I can't possibly recommend these enough.

                      I bought two of these for quiet practice and to warm up before gigs. Unfortunately, they don't feel anything like actual bass drum pedals. So now for warm-up I just do what I did before, just tap my feet on the ground. It works about as well and is cheaper and more convenient. For quiet practice get a bass drum practice pad.

                      Excellent Concept, But Some Problems

                      By PRD2112

                      from Pittsburgh, PA

                      Comments about Hansenfutz Futz Practice Pedal:

                      Since I play a double bass pedal, I bought two of the Futz Practice Pedals. Right off the bat, I had problems. One pedal was fine, but the other was missing the cap where the impact pad hits the little cylindrical tower on the floor plate, and there was no velcro on the bottom. I got on the phone right away with Mark at Hansenfutz, and he is correcting these problems ASAP, so he gets five stars for excellent customer service. My biggest concern, though, is the tension adjustment mechanism. Even with a large screwdriver, the plastic was so soft and the adjustment to increase the tension to the max required so much pressure that the slots are already chewed up. Because of this, I will not be making any more tension adjustments out of fear of damaging the adjustment mechanism to where I can no longer use the pedals.
