I've been looking at various potential upgrades in my double pedal setup. Options are many, but just about every double I've tried below a $400 street price has a significant performance/feel difference between the left and right pedal. In order to confirm this, I temporarily shft left and play the slave with my right foot to gauge any difference...don't want to mask issues under a difference in limb conditioning.
I'm willing to drop the coin for a seriously consistent pedal...if they're really out there. Once I get into the mid-$500 street price range, though, I'm seeing another option that I'm not that familiar with. Twin pedals.
The three examples I've seen of this are the Sleishman Twin, the Off-Set double and some custom variants of the top-line Sonor pedal system. I'm not positive, but I think a similar configuration is possible with the high-end Taye system.
These all look interesting, but local shops won't stock them, and will only order with a non-refundable deposit. I'm unwilling to put down money until I've tried the unit, or until enough trustworthy feedback is in hand to allow me to know what to expect.
So...question to the community...has anyone here spent any time working with these "true twin" systems? Particularly, can anyone here provide insight/input on the Sleishman model.
If not, can anyone here vouch for a "traditional" double pedal system that really has master- to slave- feel and performance where the difference is non-existent/negligible?
Thanks in advance.
