Sound: well the beaters are pretty good , makes a good sound on my bass drum. One thing id like to note it doesnt fit perfectly on my bass drum and goes a little to the left. its probably just my kit. Feature: very good pedal for the price. seems very sturdy and can take a beating. you can change the beater angle and tension pretty easliy. very fortunate thst it came with a drum key. Ease of Use: ive been playing around 2 yrs and this is my first double pedal. right off the bat, i could play pretty quick like winds of plague but i couldnt keep it up haha. very responsive pedal. Quality: seems WAY sturdier that my sp pedal that was complete crap. one thing is i wish the main pedal was an actual plate on the bottom like the left one. Value: i was gonna get pedals that were around 50-100 more bucks but these played pretty god up to those. amazing value. The Wow Factor: these blew my mind because they had alot of features for being cheap like little spikes to hold the pedal, very sturdy metal plates and a solid shaft. Overall: i bought over the pdp and the sound percussion and is a great choice for only 100 bucks!

Sound: Hey, it's a double bass drum pedal. How good can it sound? You can rotate the beater heads for a soft or hard sound. Action is good, can sound like a machine gun going off. Feature: Chain drive works well. Adjustable length linkage between pedals. Ease of Use: Easy to set up, but can get crowded under electronic drum set with the hi-hat pedal under there, too. Quality: Been using it for a month and it hasn't fallen apart yet. Value: The price was very reasonable for what you get. Zzounds price beating policy works. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed it. There are no instructions with this unit, although I didn't need any. The Wow Factor: There may be sexier pedals out there, but this one does the job and it hides behind the set at my feet so who cares. Overall: Hopefully this pedal will last a long time. Seems well built and works well. If it were stolen I would buy another. Great value. Smooth action. Unless you are Neil Peart and need a gold-plated super pedal, this one should do the trick.

Overall: I just got my order. Can't complain about it taking 3 days. Awesome customer service hooked me up with some free stuff. Mapex is great for me and it fits in my price range being a blue color worker. I can't really comment on the sound bc I don't have a mapex drum set yet. But the action is great and it is a lot nice the my last bass peddle. Thanks to zZounds
