I first bought one of these back in 2004, used it for a few years but had trouble tweaking it to my needs which is Rock, Thrash, and Punk. I just couldn't get consistent power out of the secondary beater. Ended up selling and going standard double route.
Fast forward to 2012, I hadn't made a whole lot of progress with the regular double pedals and frankly, the music I play doesn't require machine gun doubles. So I decided to pick up a used Duallist to give it a second try. Ending up getting another 1st generation model. Over a few months my playing with it progressed enough that I was liking it a lot then came across a sweet deal on a triple model. Best of both worlds!!
First thing I noticed about the new triple model was that it was much more responsive due to heavier springs, but still wasn't using the slave enough to justify keeping the triple.
Updated the springs on the older model and all I can say is wow!!! I can now do single foot rolls. Works great playing rock, old school thrash, and punk due to triplet patterns. Not so great for doing steady sustained 16th / 32nd patterns.
Great pedal, but it takes time to figure out all the settings and to get it balanced for what you are trying to play.
Final note: Heavier or tighter springs = faster response. Also, the first gen models have no chrome, but appear to be built better (machined aluminum vs cast).

I've bought this pedal used it for a month ,returned the pedal.. I contacted the duellist company told them the pedal isnt all that etc.. After thinking what they said I went and bought another pedal, contacted Duellist again , set the pedal up step by step directions, and it still sucked ,, just read all these reviews and you'll see the problems..

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        Seen this pedal thinking it would free up a foot for the hi hat for certain situtations. Played around with it trying to get the right settings but I just cannot seem to get the second beater to hit even remotely hard. I do have to say that the single part was fluid and powerful. If you have an electronic drum kit, this will work wonders... not so much with an acoustic set. It is fun to play with some times but does not perform that well and is just a toy. An expensive toy.

        Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal

        By Robert J. Zampedri

        from California

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        I like the way this pedal plays. I didn't find it difficult to set up or use. It is well engineered.
        I bought two of them (one for each bass drum) , and once I master these pedals (which is
        not that hard) , I will be able to perform double bass drum rolls. The construction is of excellent
        quality and these pedals will open up new vistas for me. I would highly recommend them and
        for anyone who says it's "cheating" , well , that's a matter of perspective. I find it "challenging" ,
        and well worth it.
        I love the features.
        The materials used appear to be of exceptional quality.
        A little pricey but worth it for what you get.

        Don't Buy

        By Winston

        from The Hood, OR

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        I tried this pedal out a while ago at a friends house--he had gotten it for free from another drummer who didn't want it. Even as a single pedal it was pretty bad, the double part was horrible. You might be able to adjust it, but the way it was setup you had to to bring your foot entirely of the pedal for the second beater to swing completely forward. I would go with a real double pedal instead of this if you are looking to do some speedy foot-work--this one is just bound to frustrate you.

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        This is a nice idea, but is not very practical. There is really no chance of doing triplets with this thing... On the contrary, if you're looking to impress the ladies with how fast you play with one foot, this might be for you. -Other than that, get a double.

        Very unnecessary!

        By LMSXC

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        This pedal is pretty pointless. With a single pedal you are able to stick the pedal with your heel than toe to get the same sound and speed as this over priced and pointless pedal. Same goes for adding the second pedal to this. Learn to play with your heel and toe on a singe beater pedal!

        By cfaul

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        if you are a double bass user you should know there is a footing technique to hit a single pedal easily at double bass speed. add to a double bass pedal and you now have triple bass. It seems as though this pedal is a waste of money and energy due to the difficulty of mastering it.

        Needs further improvement

        By Chris from Long Island, NY

        from Long Island, NY

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        A great concept but very difficult to get to work as you want. I started by reading everything given, then examining it to understand how it works. Then I spent about 6 hours adjusting every possible way to get optimal performance but in the end it's just not advanced enough. I would like to see it with chains instead of straps and also more control over the secondary beater. Not a good pedal for highly advanced drummers.

        Not Bad

        By Merddyn

        from Washington state

        Comments about The Duallist Single-Foot Double Pedal:

        You know, everybody says that this pedal is cheating, or that people who use it are too lazy to learn double bass. What nobody takes into consideration is, what about folks like me who used to be able to play double bass, but now I can't due to nerve damage in my left leg. I use this, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
