First, am I right about
the link to the pedal
board? Is that distance
adjustable?


Yes, the linkage is adjustable so you can change the pedal board height.

Also, can the hoop-clamp
be adjust for distancing
from it and the kick? That
is a very necessary feature
for me.


No, the hoop-clamp can not be adjusted for distance.

No, the pedal is made in the USA in good old NC.

We are selling direct so we can offer it at a reasonable price.

We also know it's hard to purchase a pedal having not played it before, so this is why we offer the 15 day guarantee. Try it out, and if it's not right for you, just send it back for a full refund.

We have no proof that the pedal will help with your arthritis, but people usually feel more energized after playing one for a while. Smile

If you watch the Mythbusters, they tested the myth of magnets killing your credit cards and found that it was BUSTED! I think your wallet will be safe LOL

MagentsRule,

lol!

Cool tally!

Thanks, hombre!

On the hoop-distancing option,
I really think you should think
about that feature. Not only
is it something that helps us
with the variable hoop sizes,
the action REALLY changes,
with just slight varying.

The option kills two birds.

Just a suggestion.

The pedal looks really nice.
I would love to test one.

Maybe Magnetrules would be kind enough to send Pete a pedal to try and give his unbiased opinion of.
I'm sure that Pete would send it back, when done testing, and that would be good Public relations on the part of the manufactuer.
I, for one, would like to hear his take on this pedal.

Absolutely!

Magnetrule,

When it comes to kick pedals, Pete is the beta king! He has been extensively and exhaustively researching bass drum pedals for a number of years now and he has been posting priceless information on his findings througout different sites on the internet.

In my opinion it would only beneft you to send Pete a pedal and allow him to test it. I know Pete and he is very good at what he does. In all likelyhood, he will find something key and provide a perspective that the designers/manufacfures may have overlooked. We can start with the hoop clamp... Pete's suggestion there makes total sense.

Check him out.

Don.

I'll talk with Mike and see what we can do. I'm not sure who has our loaner pedals right now.

We will be at the Drum Road Trip the weekend of June 28th up in Rochester NY. If anyone is in the area stop by and check us out.

MagnetsRule,

I am serious about this.

You should see if there
is a YouTube link to that
debunking of the credit
card - magnet scenario
and hotlink to it, from
your site.

And on the review pos-
sibility, I would be glad
try it out and review it,
without bias, here and
elsewhere.

Regards,

Have you heard anything from Magnetsrule, Pete???

Seems they wouldn't want to miss the opportunity for you to give them feedback about their product.

I hate vacations like that. The kind where you return home more exhausted than when you left.

Audrey and I are going on a cruise next year. My plans are to eat, sleep and go to the restroom.

Hang in there guys. It's not that we don't want your opinion, or that we are scared of what you might have to say. We are just a small company that can't send out a pedal to everyone that asks for one.

We are busy filling orders and have a lot of background work going on right now, so these things just have to wait. Sad

Like I said before, I'll be glad to answer any questions and take any comments you may have for us. When we have the resources and start sending out pedals for eval again, you'll be on our list.

Drumnetics,

Trust me. I understand that.

Again, a cool design. Looks
like it could perform.

Good luck with it.

Regards,

Hi Magnetsrule,

I am glad to hear you're busy filling orders because that means drummers are buying your pedal. You would get even more drummers to buy it if you get a positive review from Pete.

He is a member of a number of drum sites and is respected by the drum community for his playing , and for his zealous analysis of all drum pedals on the market.

You would get an honest evaluation from a skilled drummer with any constructive criticism if warranted. And solutions to any problems found.

And most of all, you would get your pedal returned. Now while his name wouldn't be as famous an endorsement as from some big-name drummer, I tend to think that if you send a product to a big name to try out, then they think it's okay to add it to their collection, whether they use it or not. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but you would know better than me.

Hope you decide in favor of Pete when one becomes available. Peace, TED

I absolutely second that! His praise and/or critique will be based from an objective and honest user's point of view. And I personally believe that your product will be the better for it. If there's something to be found, good or not so good, you can bet your last money, honey that Pete will find it.

He already has PDC scratching their heads on the Boa!

Don.

I would like to test one and

The one thing that worries me
is the hoop-clamp. I need to
actually see that, at work.

Pete, I just called a pro drum shop here in town. It is the same shop where I learned about the Trick Pedal... They HAD a Demon pedal there but it's gone now. They will be getting some more in shortly and as soon as they do, Paul will give me a call and I will go and check it out...

If I should get to it before you do, what features would you like me to focus on? I will also try to take pictures while I'm there.

They didn't know about the Drumnetcis Pedal... I gave him the website and he's looking into it.

I think that what you should look
at, closely, are these features:

1. Direct Link Adjustment

There are eight positions (4 for
each board). To me, it sounds
limiting but I need you to see
if you get a good range of act-
ion. Note the beater pullback.

2. Z-Link Drive Shaft

The claim is that both pedals are
exactly the same. Tall statement.
Let's see if that is true.

Thanks.

One more thing:

Make sure to get a shot of each
of the positions, beater extended
to the head so we can see the
angle of pull-down. This would be
a shot from the side, while the
board was fully depressed, with
the beater against the head.

Thanks, again, Don!!

Regards,

afro

Pretty clean and solid looking pedal.

Personally my consern, besides hoop compatibility is the aggressiveness to that 'magnetic pull'. I would think that would be beyond just the physicalness of the pedal and more of the science of magnetism. Unless that (magnetism) can be controlled in smooth transitional-increments it may present problems in one's personal feel in playing the pedal. In this case, the pedal may out-play the player which can be uneasy and conflict with one's performance. Would you think? I don't know. Sure like to try one though.

For whatever is worth...just my 1/2 and 2/3rds input? ... Wink

I am talking to Mike at Drumnetics and
it appears as though I will be getting the
chance to use/test this pedal for you.

I was intrigued right from the start. Now,
I will be able to prove to myself the real
value in this unique design.

I will be posting in the near future.
