Taye pedal competition!

A comfortable bass drum pedal is often considered the Holy Grail by drummers. There are so many factors that play a part in how our pedals feel under foot - beater angle, spring tension, footplate angle, and so many more - that it can be hard to tailor them all to suit our individual playing needs. Taye´s sturdy new XP1 pedal range could well be the answer. It's one of the most adjustable pedal designs we've seen in a long time...

Jordan McLachlan gave the pedals a gleaming four star review in the November issue of Rhythm and said they were "intelligently designed and beautifully built to operate at the highest level." If you like what you've heard so far then read on as the generous folk at Taye have donated an XP1 single pedal for us to give away to one lucky reader. Just fill out the online form below and cross those fingers...
