At Drum City Guitarland, we never sell our instruments straight out of the box.

Each Stringed Instrument is hand inspected twice by Our on-site technician - once when it arrives, and again when you purchase it!

With each Instrument purchase, our tech will set up the item to your personal settings. This includes: gauge of strings, desired tuning, string action (for guitars) and more!

 

"Over the past two decades, I acquired and played pretty much every pedal on the market. Unfortunately, I could never find a pedal that really worked for me. I found that compared to some legendary vintage pedals from the fifties, most contemporary pedals have plenty of speed and throw on the forward motion, but sluggish response on the beater return.

Once the original vintage designs were altered to meet the demand for more striking power, the perfectly balanced action got lost and became top heavy. Like an unbalanced stick, this becomes a considerable disadvantage to execute many of my pedal techniques which allow me to generate effortless speed without sacrificing power. Many pedals try to compensate for this problem with elaborate adjustability but only with limited success.

So I started my quest to put together a perfectly balanced pedal that matches the requirements of today?s music. For about six years I experimented with different parts, drive systems and footboards until I had the blueprint for the pedal that you have in front of you. Other than the action, easy portability and quick set up was a main concern to me. At that point SONOR joined the project and contributed their German precision engineering and an innovative solution for the folding mechanism and self-mounting hoop clamp that works at the push of a button.

The Perfect Balance Pedal is a carefully calibrated system that optimizes the linear translation of your foot movements and makes many adjustments expendable. It was designed with a principle in mind that reflects ultimate sophistication to me:  Simplicity.

Essentially, it could be described as the soul and feel of a vintage pedal reincarnated in the technology of a 21st century body."
