1 The OFF-SET Bi-lateral Pedal on Tue Apr 28, 2015 1:53 pm

I didn't want to barge into the Malleus thread so I posted this one. Links to the OFF-SET USA and Euro web sites. And a pic of the new Evolution-1 pedal, which is really nice looking. A solid link, direct drive model is coming soon, as well.

Even though I play Drumnetics now Charles Fisher is a really nice guy and I hope he continues to do well with his pedals.

I believe you will enjoy the pedal. I can't really think of anything negative to say about it, for a spring-based system. Refinements have only made it better.

Charles told me the coming solid link drive can be retrofit for chain models, which is nice of them to do. He also told me Modern Drummer and DRUM! did reviews of it back in December, giving it high marks. Matter of fact he said the MD reviewer bought the pedal, he liked it so much.

For Don and anyone else interested, Charles informed me this morning that the new E-1 model is ready to ship, both single and bi-lateral double pedal.

If interested be sure to contact Charles Fisher at the first link. The Euro link is just to provide pics and info on the new models. The USA OFF-SET web site is still being updated. But Charles is taking orders.

Just talked to Charles, Asaph... Super nice man!
Good price on the Evolution-1 Pedal. I will be ordering
one shortly. Just want to do a bit more research.

Any help would be appreciated.... Thanks.

Charles says hello!

Yeah, Charles is a really nice guy.

This is the recent review DRUM! did:

You have probably seen other older reviews doing any searches.

Not much on youtube. Nothing on the new model. Here's a newer one of the current model:

The Paradiddler has one on it:

Otherwise, ask me something and I'll try to answer. Charles can answer anything, too, of course. I know it is tough when you can't try one out first.

Bottom line; it is a quality product with nice adjustment features and has a great, solid feel to it. Not to mention the ergonomics of it and the comfort of playing one. Really, that is the thing for me and why I am going to do a joint gig between the Drumnetics and the OFF-SET center section.

That last post of yours is a HUGE help, Asaph!

Thanks so much!

One question: Being that they are both slave pedals,
do you notice any lag or loss of accuracy when doing
fast doubles, even with just using one of the pedals?

No, no lag, period. That is the common experience everyone has, wondering if having two slaves will feel like typical slaves on other pedals - slight lag, not enough speed or power.

The OFF-set, having such short rods, and really heavy duty joints, plus those stabilizer bars below the shafts creates a VERY stable feel. In my pedal test when I ended up with the Drumnetics, using those 8 different pedals there is no sense of distance between the OS pedal and beater and any other straight ahead pedal. You KNOW you are using a slave, you can see it but, the response is not really any different than any other pedal, other than feeling very solid. To this day the OS remains the most solid feeling pedal I have owned. The 9001 would be right along side it. I never owned one. Mike had it and brought it over one day to try it out next to the Drumnetics. I obviously liked the feel of the Drumnetics better but, the 9001 is a very stout unit. Like the OS it has a pretty big footprint. Nothing that different than other pedals ounce for ounce but, you can feel it. I could. The OS, having the large footprint and pedal board, creates such a solid feel it is not like having two slaves.

When dancing on the pedal and cranking out notes the Drumnetics works best for me but, if the Drumnetics was not available I'd be getting the new E-1 myself. I'd wait for the solid link instead of chain, though. Charles said there has been a problem with something with the manufacturer; a communication mishap or something. He hopes to have the solid link soon, though.

You're very welcome. Glad to help. If you decide to get one I trust you'll really like everything about it, from concept to features to feel.
