Better than the signature model!
Peggy6858 11.12.2018
I'm a huge fan of the PB pedals. I've been using the signature model for some time and for me, it's the ultimate pedal.
However, i never felt totally comfortable with the folding mechanism and wasn't confident that in the future it would remain solid.
I saw this new version at a drum show recently and i had to have one, so i sold my signature model and bought one.
It feels exactly the same, plays exactly the same but has the added bonus that it doesn't fold, which i think makes it a better option.
It still comes with a bag aswel, although nowhere near the quality of the signature model, understandably as it is cheaper but still, you get one.
It's just an incredible pedal, get one!

Bouncy pedal with lots of foot space
a Tamás 22.07.2022
There are 2 versions of the Jojo Mayer pedal and they almost look the same. There is the original foldable one which has extra lacquer on the footboard and there's this stable one which comes at a better price. I bought this version because I read in reviews that the original Jojo pedal might accidentally collapse under your foot. This does not fold like the original but is still very transportable if you detach the spring and remove the beater (just wrap the beater in something to avoid the metal parts scratching each other).

Pros
Looks nice and simple
Any foot technique is easier on the long footboard with the flat surface, plus you get extra space on the right (where there's no pillar) for foot motions
The beater naturally bounces back so it's easy to avoid burying it in the bass drum head. This is probably due to the round cam and and the strap-drive system.
Recommended by Jojo Mayer in his foot technique video course

Cons (nothing that can't be fixed) :

The beater rod is slightly thinner than other beater rods and it is shaped even thinner on its lower part. It requires about 2 - 3 cm of the beater poking out at the other end to hit the exact centre of a 22" bass drum. The beater hole isn't wide enough to let other regular-thick beater rods through, it stops them when they reach the bottom. If you want to use a different beater and still hit the centre of the bass drum, you can try putting the desired beater head on a shorter rod.

It could have a bit more and softer padding on the clamp - I usually wrap an old sock around the bass drum hoop where I attach the pedal to avoid scratches.

I found the pedal might make some noise in certain cases but it's easy to fix that
- There might be some space between the spring holder thumbscrews -> tighten them
- The foam in the spring might have come out -> stretch the spring and push the foam back to the centre
- The beater might be loose -> tighten it up with a drum key

Great Pedal
BrunoDrums 09.02.2021
Great Pedal, I love the feel and balance. The pedal delivers exactly what it promises. Great a versatile pedal, that allows you speed and volume control for dynamics. The only criticism is, at this price point Sonor should provide a more high-end bag,

Perfect response
Stefan Goranov 18.04.2022
The pedal feels exactly the same as the Jojo Meyer version. It is easy more stable because it doesn't have the folding mechanism. Obviously this makes it a bit less compact. If you are looking for many options to tweek and adjust different feels - this is not the pedal for you. However, it has the best natural response - what you do with your foot is directly translated to the drum.
