If I ever wear this stuff out I'll check into Axis. Thanks for putting that link up, Mitchell, I appreciate it.


I always use my internet ninja powers to do good. Which usually entails finding links for people. Do I get a medal for that? :)

It's on Wiki. It's been mentioned in interviews, he left early last year, and I saw photos.
I'll look for the pics and post em.

this may be a bad thing?


its good man keep like that, you must be using VDL over 2/3 of the way i guess

that first part of the pedal between the beginning up to the AXIS "sock eater" letters give a special feeling.
I love Cheese and drums

kind of like apples and oranges if you ask me. I love my dw pedals, but they're totally different than the axis in terms of construction and action. personally, I'm gonna get a BOA double for my next pedal.

Lets just say I don't know how he's gonna do some of his stuff on a chain drive pedal. No slight to DW, but...........?
