I just hope they use rare earth magnets or something of the kind that will last longer. Even magnets won't last forever. And what happens if you have to replace anything?

"In the pedal and footboard are powerful rare-earth magnets that repel each other to eliminate the need for any spring mechanism. Since you have control over the position of one magnet, you can adjust the amount of resistance."

that was one of the things I regret missing most at NAMM- still not sure how I overlooked it.
I've read a review somewhere that said the feel was really strange.
I sure wanted to check one out... :-(

The closer you have the magnets the more they are going to repel each other. In other words, the tension will gradually be stronger when you push downward. Springs also change tension, but maybe it can be felt more with the magnets?

just ran across the review again:

" the Drumnetics magnetically spung bass drum pedal, one of several new pedals at the show. This pedal works using the polar resistance of earth magnets instead of a spring. In this particular configuration however, the pedal lacks the expected (and often desired) recoil of a traditionally sprung pedal, meaning the beater and foot board come back at your leg for the next power stroke."

$300 for a pedal :? seems a bit... much... I just can't see how it would be that much better than a decent spring pedal... I've been using the same pedal for 4 years now and it still hasn't lost much of its response... and it's just a sonor stock pedal from its low end set :cry:
