    Comments about PDP Concept Single Pedal:

    As a novice drummer (3 years) I found this pedal to be absolutely amazing. The big footpad and excellent response made learning doubles and faster kick patterns so much easier and at times almost effortless. This is definitely a must have for anyone looking to improve your footwork. I'm definitely getting the hihat stand to match it!

      Comments about PDP Concept Single Pedal:

      I was so happy to get this pedal that I actually _wanted_ to tell other drummers about it. (No, I'm not being paid to write this.) I've always wanted to try a long-board pedal, and thought this sale special would be a good oppportunity. But I had no idea it would be this great.

      The double-chain is good (another one of those things that helps more than it seems like it should; I learned this last year). But the feel of the thing is great. It took very little time to adjust the hammer height, tension and distance from the head, and there it was ... a fantastic blend of speed, accuracy, smoothness, and that nice variability when a pedal's design allows a slight shift in the foot to improve what I'm trying to do, in the moment.

      I really like to be able to play doubles with one foot, but I don't like that tension balance to take away from the solidity of just laying back on a simple downbeat. This pedal really does allow me to do both, better than any other pedal I've tried. And at a great price.

      I'm super pleased, and recommend you give this one a try. You'll see...

      Comments about PDP Concept Single Pedal:

      I purchased this pedal mainly because of the longer footboard .. and to 'match' a PDP Concept Hi-hat stand that I own.
      It is as fast as this type of pedal is likely to be and as adequate as any other for the price you really can't go wrong.
      If you are a top pro you know that you get what you pay for.
      If you are a beginner this is a great pedal that will take you right up to the pro ranks.

          I'm a novice drummer but have been playing guitar for decades. I bought this Concept pedal to go with my PDP Concept Maple Kit. It is really well built, looks great, and has a key and key holder too. I was able to adjust it easily to my style, and I think it's going to improve my drumming.

          The blue anodized aluminum cam looks cool too!

              Bought this as an upgrade from some SP pedal I had. I'm really happy with it. Really well built. Good stability. I like the wide and long footboard. I was worried that the surface might be slick, but so far I haven't had any issues in that regard. Would have preferred a felt beater, but that's an easy change should I need to. Good pedal for the price.

                  Comments about PDP Concept Single Pedal:

                  I bought this pedal to go with a set of the new PDP Concept drums that I had just acquired. I normally use a DW 5000 have had several over the years and it has always been my go-to pedal, but I liked some of the features of this pedal and thought I'd give it a try. I'm principally a heel down player and have a size 13 foot and the first thing I noticed is how comfortable this longer and wider foot board is to play. I find that I can play with more finesse on the Kick Drum than in the past. Triplets and pedal grace notes are now effortless. Also it is FAST! Some of the on-line blogs have opined as to not having tread on the pedal will be a detriment. Actually, I find that with the wider and longer foot plate my foot actually stays centered more than with my DW 5000. The build quality is excellent, typical DW standards. While not as fancy or adjustable as the DW 5000 it is an excellent pedal and a bargain at the price. DW will sell a ton of these! Hope they bring out a "Concept" Hi Hat with the same pedal, I'll buy it!

                  Comments about PDP Concept Single Pedal:

                  FYI, I'm not a pedal expert, I'm a bar-band drummer. I've played several pedals over the years but have always returned to the Ludwig Speed King because I am a John Bonham freak, and because the SK is simple and fast.

                  PDP Concept pedal - I had one problem right out of the box - this pedal "clicked" slightly every time the beater reached the top of its forward progress. Turns out the set-screw on the bottom of the beater assembly was loose. Problem solved.

                  The beater on this pedal is heavy - 128 grams compared to 80 grams for a Ludwig Speed King beater and 82 for a Pearl P120 beater. A good part of this weight (26 grams) is the slide-lock that secures the beater to the beater assembly. I tried the pedal with both other standard-weight beaters but it seems to work best with the one that came with it. I had to crank up the spring tension a little (more on that later) to compensate for the beater weight but then I noticed that it takes less effort to get volume out of this pedal, so it seems like an even trade-off. The beater face is hard rubber (plastic on the other side). I like it - less b-b-b-b-bounce off the head than felt, and a nice deep thump.

                  The longboard pedal is brushed aluminum so it has some grip to it. Length comparison - Concept pedal footboard including heelplate is 13 1/4", Pearl P120 is 12 1/2" (feels like the average size footboard to me), and Speed King 12". I love the Speed King but I have size 14 feet, so even in bare feet the SK seems a little small. The Concept pedal feels plenty big for me even with shoes on.

                  The clamp that secures the pedal to your bass drum is GREAT. It sticks out the side (under the pedal) so you don't have to crawl around trying to tighten it, and it has a lever action so it only takes 1/4 the amount of turns to tighten. It also clamps down on ANY size bass hoop, including the thin steel hoop on my cheaper bass drum.

                  The action - I don't know how to describe it except to say IN MY OPINION this pedal seems as fast as my Speed King. Also this Concept pedal is easier to play because of the long footboard. Different, because of the heavier beater and concurrent increased spring tension, but ultimately as fast and no more fatiguing than the SK. IN MY OPINION. Try it before you buy it. In a nutshell, this pedal doesn't slow me down, but that is a totally subjective opinion.

                  When I first got the pedal I marked where the tension spring was set, then started messing around with different tensions. Interestingly, when I found the tension that worked best I checked and it was exactly back at the factory setting.

                  The base plate on this pedal is HEAVY and SOLID. Combine that with the excellent hoop clamp system and you have a rock-solid pedal that isn't going anywhere.

                  I really REALLY like this pedal. It feels like a lot of thought went into its design. There is nothing about it I don't like.
