It's good to see PP thinking out of the box with one of the more lavish finishes. However, comparing value with other budget kits (even its own PP300R), we think they may need to sharpen their pencil.

Dixon has the design of this pedal spot-on. It also happens to be fittingly affordable and should provide years of good service.
