- I have this double for 3 years now (approximately). I took it to replace a 5002 DW, which was really great but commenait take a little game. Nothing serious but hey, I'm me spar before it more vale nothing on the market.
- So I command the Axis in the USA, what I advise to all interested; you will pay much less expensive than in Europe, even with the customs fees. She cot under 450 new fdpin, book 24 (!!!! I hallucin !!!!) from California, a small store that does not pay mine. And the price I had 90 of customs fees. I let you calculate the price of dual XD
- Before I had tried some nearly all other conceivable trademarks or by purchasing them (Pearl and Tama and DW) or by testing (Mapex, Yamaha ...). Paradoxically I almost never tried Seriously Axis; I bought a little on their reputation.
- PLUS: speed, resistance, manufacturing quality, easy rglages
- The LEAST: sensations, the look, striking power, bats Misrables
Basically, with this double, you play a lot faster (at least you can go as fast as the other double but with less effort), but no power. Well, there is relative: 3 years I always use the supplied bats, but I've even power. It is a question of technique will say.
But you will be surprised when same. No potatoes, no feeling. This pedal is made to pound on the trigger, nothing more. The attack is too sharp, which is quite heavy on normal recording microphones. Obligation to reinforce the bass and break the attack on your squenceur.
So particulires sensations, we must love. A play barefoot or in socks to keep minimum vibration in the legs, as if buying a jackhammer and don'ts of drumkit. Personally I do not like, but you get used force.
Finally, above all, you will be obliged to adopt the hitting technique "tip". Mme not worth doing tap-dance the top: a is not studied for, and she is too lightweight underfoot for this technique. But on the other side it is an advantage of this Axis: it does not feel under foot. So when you need to send pure, was sent, but then really serious. If you dprimez since childhood by listening of Vader, wondering "how he does !! ?? !!" ... H + Axis ben buy a trigger, and you will too. Voil voil.
Ct benefits (even when!) The amazing quality of the components. L I can say that has not move at all at all, really, it is like new although I lug around a lot. Besides the black paint that fades a little surface Not a single game, everything is tight and stays tight. The really strong. has changed.
Review: mitig. To be used, I think, as a second extra double pedal when playing the metal; but keep your classic pedal for the rest, for the feeling.
Report quality price level: bon me she cost a misery so no account, but ... In general it is too too too too expensive, but it's the same for all marks. The Axis provided a lousy form, some of cls rglages in a plastic bag, and that's it. Mme not a cover, sticker, tshirt. Hello Scrooge.
Try before you start and work your technique before. This is a pedal of specialist who is not put between all legs
I bought this model because it was the fashionable brand. It was my first double.
It is very enjoyable to play but:
- It is for a bass drum triggée because no power
- The clamping system of heads of bats is lousy, it moves
- Too small allen screw sizes
- It rust
- Carrying case no.
Passed since Tama Iron Cobra Powerglide in Yamaha DFP9500C then I finally found the right speed / power / comfort / price ratio.
I just had this double (in black of course, it is so much better ^ ^) and I must say I am impressed with the speed it provides over previous pedals I had. In 20 minutes I managed to exceed my max speed, and that without being in great shape and optimized without setting ...
The last pedal I bought is a simple sound channel, which is very nice and correct for the price. Before I had a DW 5000 double chain which I really disappointed ... touch too heavy .. the left pedal was really much slower than the right, in short, I got drunk and sold with the money I could buy the Sonor which was much faster and easier to adjust.
To return to this Axis AL Longboard I find it really well thought out. Already the principle longboard is a good find. And this is the first pedal that allows me to find my settings as quickly (unlike other reviews I've read). In fact this is the first time I find an ideal setting without having to touch the spring (the most .... fuck to pay). In fact, the Axis can adjust: the angle of the bat, the depth of the bat (thanks to "sonic hammer" and, through their ingenious "variable drive lever", the response of the pedal (lever up: long reach and powerful shot, lever down: touch and bounce up short). It's quite magical about the Axis not need to tend to spring back to get a high speed.
I hope his reputation for delicate pedal is not going to check ... For the record Axis has just increased its rates by 20%, I hope they have strengthened the parts that were problematic. They have at least the opportunity to add a clip to attach the pedal to the bass drum (finally). In the end it cost me 666 euros (this figure is not good ^ ^), it's expensive but when I think I was ready to put 860 euros for a trick pro1 v-2 that I was finally able test and not so great ... And compared to 500 euros for the DW 5000 is well worth it, especially since we can convert into two single pedals.
I remake a comment in a year to tell you if I do not regret my choice.
