    Too big... shouldn't be a foot pedal. Doesn't even have a good look aside from the part that makes a Binson a Binson. I'm still interested in hearing it but not feeling it based on format and looks.... and this coming from the biggest Binson fan. (Yes, bigger than Gilmour.. it's been measured)

    Ok, wow... I'm in... trex need commending for their efforts. This will be awesome. Not copied it, but the vibe is there. Sorry but this deserves a real chance. Brave move and I admire that.

    As a foot pedal, I agree, it doesn't make sense. Hopefully they built in an external footswitch jack. Worst case, it should be an easy mod.

    I mean, you can still put it off your board. The only thing that makes it a foot pedal is the footswitch

    Ok... one cool thing i just noticed is each head has its own dedicated volume knob. THAT is cool.

    There has to be a cover for the wheel... wonder if it's just clear? I like watching things spin. :D

    Oh yeah, i forgot we saw the picture in the first post. :D Yeah, would have been cool if it was clear so you could watch the magic but at least they kept the "magic eye" on the front.

    The look is growing on me. I just really hope there's a footswitch input somewhere on it so you at least have the option to have it on the floor or not.

    It does look cool. It was my knee jerk reaction. Look and control parameters are good.... now lets hear it.

    Well, it looks cool. And the drum spins.
    But I'd lay a Vegas bet that thing is gonna cost a sh!t-ton.

    I'll need to hear what it sounds like in a Pompeii amphitheater first.
