reliable, inexpensive, simple pedal. much easier to figure out that some high end pedals ive messed with and you still get all the power and adjustability of expensive pedals.
It doesn't really have much more than any other pedal I've used but the thing I love about this one is, i don't use heel toe, slide, or swivel when im doing faster beats, i just use my ankle strength. the springs are pretty loose so even if you have a weak kick or use heel down (for some reason) you can get a loud hit without slamming the pedal. and its really easy to adjust the angle of the beater. on some of my friends more expensive pedals we couldnt even figure that out.
Ive had it for almost 2 years and its still holding up as good as when i got it, but some of the screws keep coming loose. you may have to tighten some stuff up regularly but other than that its sturdy.
Amazing pedal for the price. puts together quick, easy to figure out, and will last you a long time.

If you are just getting into double bass, you may find the price appealing. Here is my advice to you: This pedal will work fine for someone working on fundamental ideas of double bass drumming, but anything more intricate, and you will QUICKLY find that these pedals are sub par. At first, you will think its your fault, mess with the settings forever, and get nowhere. Then you will get frustrated. You will want to avoid that last step. Doing so is easy. For $70-100 more you can go get some Iron cobra jr's or gibraltars, that will feel great out of the box, and will be fun and easy to play. Those pedals are many, many levels above the Sound Percussion pedals.

You don't buy $15 shoes to see if you like running. Don't buy a cheap bass drum pedal to see if you will like it. As a musician, if your gear sucks you will get frustrated and quit. In music, you get what you pay for 10 times out of 10. There is a reason why DW kits cost $5K, just like there is a reason why these pedals are $75 cheaper than any name brand.

Besides, if you do decide you don't like double bass drumming (unlikely, i know), if you buy a name brand then your pedals will have resale value. These pedals will not. I got a great deal on these pedals, and I only use them on my practice kit. On the plus side, they make me really appreciate my high end pedals. I would buy these pedals again, but if these will be your primary pedals, look elsewhere!!
No frills on this thing. Just a plain-jane pedal with limited adjustability.
Solid footplate, beaters, springs and rod. You probably wont be able to break this thing, but it will never be quite what you want. I have messed with the settings endlessly, but the slave pedal still feels like a brick.
The one saving grace of this pedal, and the reason its quickly becoming one of the most popular pedals on the market (just look at the number of comments), is the price. There is simply no other double pedal on the market that you can get brand new for this price.

    Comments about Sound Percussion Double Bass Pedal:

    I have had this pedal for two years, and I was happy how cheap it was. I put it together, and I played for a few weeks on it, and then it fell apart. I had to maintain some extra parts to hold it together. After that, it seemed to work pretty well. Two years later, every time I play it, the left pedal locks up and becomes non-functional, which causes me to mess up whatever song I'm playing. It happened when I played out the first time, and now it won't stop. This pedal is not OK for long-term use.

            I do understand the old adage, "you get what you pay for." But usually you receive at least one use out of what you buy. After receiving this through UPS I hooked it up to my kit. As soon as I hit the main foot I noticed a lot of slop in the cam drive for the beater. No big deal. Went to tighten down the cam drive and the set screw style lug snapped in half!

                    This pedal came to me as if it had just come off the line. Each component was separate and not a single thing on the pedal was set up. I had to basically assemble the thing through trial and error to try and get it to work. It took me hours to figure out how to accomplish this, but eventually I did. Once assembled, it is an average pedal at best. Definitely regret this purchase. Save up and get a decent pedal to forego the headache this one causes.

                    This is definitely a good buy, I got this pedal on sale for about thirty percent off and it works great. personally I am a guitarist and not a drummer, but I bought a set to sorta dabble in drumming a bit and i wanted a cheap double bass pedal and this fit the bill. my only complaint is no instructions. This pedal wasnt terribly difficult to put together, even without experience but instructions would have been nice. BOTTOM LINE: Good if your on a budget or just a begginner

                            What a surprise. I only got this pedal because of a promotion that MF was offering. I have had it for about a month now and its working great. I still prefer two single pedals, but this is a great way to work your way up on a double pedal. Great purchase...would buy again!
