Very cool ideas.

Thanks, Don.

I bought the double pedal, Pete. It doesn't have all the bells
and whistles that you like but it feels and plays simply killer!
It's the most balanced double pedal I've ever used along with
my Boa.

The jury's still out but I may even like the Atlas better. I haven't
used it other than trying it out for a couple of minutes but I'll get
back to you after a gig or two...

In the meantime, read my review on Amazon:

$325.00 out the door, btw.

Really nice hardware there. I especially liked the two-slot feet pads on the high hat stand. Totally genius to now have your stands clearing on the bottom, above other stands. That was always an issue with my setting up. Fantastic! cheers

I'm proud of what Ludwig is doing. That's all I'd play
at one time.... Never owned a Slingerland, Rogers or
a Gretsch as American drum makers went... It was
Ludwig or nothing at all.

As mainstream iconic American companies go I think it's
just DW, Gretsch and Ludwig that's left. I hope they all
hang on and do very well.

Would Slingerland be more of an American drum heritage than DW? Did not DW come into the scene sometime after Slingerland?...not sure.

Yes, rac but to my knowledge, Slingerland is
no longer on the scene. So I named the
forementioned companies as the only iconic
American companies left. Or am I mistaken?

I did try the double pedal, and it was awesome:) Very smooth and balanced. I was thinking about possibly getting the Atlas Pro snare stand with the adjusting basket, but it was $160.00 Ouch!!

Its real quality hardware for sure. Good to see Ludwig upgrade. If I were in the market for a new double pedal, I would probably buy a Ludwig.

I'm currently using the Pearl Eliminators and they are serving me well.

Yeah, Dave, I think the snare stand will be next on my list. I like the idea
of being able to adjust the basket between a 16" and a 10" drum. Give these
things some time and you can always find them cheaper on ebay or someplace.
It's just a matter of patience. I got the pedal for $325.00 out the door and the
sale price was $387.00 plus tax. I couldn't pass that up. The Atlas double pedal
is wicked... No regrets!
