Top of the idea

heizer, 14.05.2011
I've been playing drums / e-drums for over 25 years and has been playing guitar for about 6 years. About 3 years ago came Cajon and Fusspercussion (including Shadow Stompbox, Meinl FootCabasa). The enthusiasm was great, when I learned from the FX10 foot pedal. With a simple pedal easy access to different samples (here 10 pieces) is a long-cherished wish.

So I ordered the pedal without much hesitation. The first impression was also very good - solid workmanship, decent design. Unfortunately, the impression was very slow at first:

The feel of the game is very spongy, the stroke is quite short and the tread resistance weak and not adjustable. As a drummer I'm used to "normal" foot machines and I can not make friends with it.

The trigger point is almost on the last millimeter. In the case of the sounds, which also generate a sound when the pedal is released (cabasa, tambourine), the second signal trigger follows directly on the "first milimeter" of the release. Playing this "tight" groove is a tough challenge (also for FootCabasa players).

With the "simple" sounds I could not always avoid occasional double triggers, even with concentrated play, which is with more exercise bez. the "stepping" may be improved.

Unfortunately, velocity dynamics are not available, which makes it easier for the beginner to use, but the musical expression is unfortunately limited.

The sounds sound mE as for e-drum modules of the entry class. The first bassdrum, cowbell, the cabasa and the tambourine are largely OK. Bassdrums 2 and 3, however, are in my opinion rather useless and would have better be replaced by a snare and a HiHat.

Conclusion: The FX10 can not meet my (certainly quite high) expectations unfortunately. So I sent it back. If Meinl possibly build a successor (or build - the current model is made by "Shadow"), should be considered the following points:

- Adjustable stroke and pedal force
- Pedal mechanically more stable
- Better sounds (possibly also interchangeable or instead can use own sounds via eg via SD card)
- Stroke dynamics (adjustable)
- For "double sounds", the trigger point of the second sound should be at the "upper end".

Perfect would be, of course, a trigging input, to connect a second pedal (we have two feet ... :-)) I hope that in this equipment category even more - better products follow. This may then also cost more.

Exactly what I was looking for

ThomasF, 23.02.2012
I play the guitar and to get some rhythm into the songs I play with my right foot bassdrum. At first I had the SHADOW STOMPIN in the test, but I did not like the sound and I triggered my Alesis D4 with the signal.

Now with the MEINL FX10 I do not need a rack .... because everything is in it what I need. I usually use only the bass drum 0 and 2, which are fully sufficient for me, and sometimes the shaker. I do not quite get along with the double functional sounds, but I think with a little practice you can also create good rhythms.

Even the pedal kick works great.

On the contrary, when playing the guitar, singing and playing the harmonica you do not have to concentrate on the velocity of the BD.

I can only recommend the part.
