MGR/Aysi Ouinre's review"Axis Longboard Double Pedal"

Axis X-L2 Longboard Double Pedal
I bought this pedal at Guitar Center for $400, because I wanted to switch from 2 bass drums to 1, with a double pedal. (That way, I don't have any issues loading and unloading craploads of drums)

Almost everything. It's easy to do double bounces on this pedal, which means that I can play the hi-hats while making it sound like I'm playing on the double pedal. And, when I need to play a steady double beat, the left pedal is always there. And, the left pedal feels exactly like the right pedal--something I couldn't do with the Iron Cobra. I love the direct drive, because it doesn't have the wobbly feeling of a strap drive, or the annoying tendency to loosen up like the chain drive pedals. The direct drive pedals have sensitivity that no other type of pedal can match, and the Axis is the best of the direct drive pedals that I have played on.

Well...it's not the best looking pedal on the planet. But that doesn't matter, because people won't notice how bad the pedal looks when you're playing on stage. The beater head that came with the pedal sounds too harsh for my liking, so I replaced it with a cylindrical beater (That's just a matter of personal taste).

Solid as the rockies. I've had this pedal for over a year, and it has never needed any kind of adjustment.

I wish I could rate this pedal a 6 out of 5, but the site won't allow that. This thing is fast, smooth, sensitive, and solid. What more could you ask for?

Axis X-L2 Longboard Double Pedal
Axis has been making quality pedals for a long time.  The Longboard double pedals are some of the best for all types of drummers because of their simplicity, ease of adjustment, and speed.  I made the mistake early on in buying a more typical double bass pedal setup for a couple hundred bucks less than the Longboards.  This was a mistake, and I often regret my decision because now I know how great the Longboards are since I have played them. 

I originally noticed the Longboards because they have a longer foot pedal (about 2 inches).  This makes it much easier to play heel toe technique if you have big feet, or experiment with slide technique.  The surface is also smoother than a lot of other pedals, so this allows for quicker slide movement as well. These pedals have direct drive hardware and are extremely smooth.  Both springs are side by side and it is easy to get them to a similar tension.  Not many pedals are this easy to set up.  The beaters are the most adjustable I have ever come across, and there are a few different types to try out depending on the situation.  All these features surpass even the highest end of DW pedals, Tama pedals, and many others.  The only double bass pedals that can compare to these would be the Iron Cobras. 

It is amazing how important bass drum comfort and confidence is.  This is quickly learned the hard way when you are forced to play on an unfamiliar pedal.  Playing the Axis felt good right away, and now my DW pedals feel like some stranger's.  I am looking to get the Longboards as soon as I can. I suggest these pedals, you're not going to regret a decision that will reward you time and time again.

Axis X-L2 Longboard Double Pedal
For a year I think
stagg was € 200 before then iron cobra rolling glide € 415 al era
I love the flexibility, but there is a time of adaptation to take into account we can not tweak the spring 5 minutes and do a concert that evening, he must learn the double because c is an instrument in its own right, all of our benchmarks are distorted at this point say that it is crap aluminum.
value price 300 € occas it's worth the shot leaves a furiously keep rolling (in my case or cases), but ca € 800 becomes questionable.
For info with rolling j is still playing very relaxed skin for spring snapping and also very relaxed, with axis I drive the top and bottom stretched spring a kick ditto for the trig then the opposite take your ... wait patiently soft spring test drive up, drive down and then spring back to drive up, drive down (who happens to play well and quickly spring back to drive all the way down I pay him the restaurant, c is super heavy .
for those who say what is too light I think he did not really tested.
I would do this choice because that is really above that should work from the beginning not to lose time with anvils that are the majority of other pedals in any case if the rolling speed is really great for the most classic
