When I tried out my pedal on my kick drum with the Speed Star bearing I realised the return was significantly faster then with the pedal’s original factory fitted bearing, almost too fast.
I like a very light spring tension on my pedals and, at first, it was difficult to get the spring light enough for my technique, but after I adjusted the beater angle slightly this issue was rectified, in fact the tension was lighter then with my original bearing and the fast Speed Star bearing’s return was still intact.
My double, triple and 8th and 16th note kick drum strokes are faster and easier to execute with the new bearing.
A great bass drum pedal upgrade.
