What We Think

The Derek Roddy Signature pedal takes many of the Axis A Longboard pedals features and add some subtle refinements to round out the perfect pedal for Derek. These pedals are lightweight, incredibly sturdy, machined with precision, and the electronic trigger assembly is a true stroke of genius. This innovative trigger assembly comes factory installed on the Derek Roddy pedal(s). It eliminates issues like crosstalk and retriggering, and it can even be adjusted to trigger slightly before in an effort to combat latency. The action of the pedals is smooth and feel like a natural extension of your foot which will be a delight for all of you barefoot players. Looking for the ultimate in performance? Look no further.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Axis Percussion

The Derek Roddy Signature Edition A21 with Electronic Kit incorporates the A21 beater bracket and includes ideas from Derek and his forum to make the pedals more user friendly, such as the drum key adjustments for the beater angle adjustment and Variable Drive Lever. Also, locating posts on the base plate prevent having to change the settings for the drum beater andElectronic Kit detonator angles. The self contained Electronic Kit allows triggering without the use of external adhesive piezos eliminating cross-talk and double triggering. The base plates are smooth with the distinctive design applied by laser. An extended length bearing swivel rocker, The Deep Rocker, has been added to the spring assemblies gives a more immediate and powerful spring response.

The Derek Roddy Signature Edition A21 Double Pedal with Electronic Kits uses three spring assemblies to power the pedal and twoElectronic Kits, one EKIT per pedal. The additional spring assembly on the slave pedal keeps the spring return action close to the slave pedal and allows for quick conversion from a double pedal to two single pedals. Derek approvingly road tested and evaluated the new models, and we are proud to offer them as his signature pedals.

About Manufacturer

For almost three decades, Axis Percussion have been manufacturing high-quality drum hardware made from aircraft-grade aluminum and steel. Their goal is to provide drummers with efficient and durable gear that will last them for years. Axis started as Engineered Percussion, the brainchild of drummer and machinist Darrell Johnston. After a few failed experiments, Darrell produced the first versions of the now-iconic Axis pedals around 1990. After rave reviews in Modern Drummer Magazine and at the 1991 NAMM show, Axis began to garner a reputation for their innovative and durable designs. Today, with an artist roster including names like Derek Roddy, George Kollias, and Alfred Berengena, Axis pedals are revered by drummers the world over who seek speed, precision, and dependability from their gear. All parts are machined at Axis’ facility in Carson, California, meaning that Axis products truly are American-made by a small team of dedicated machinists and engineers.
