Yeah, pedal cracked today. Pedal went down, half came up >.<.

Question for anyone who recieved their replacements, are they designed differently? This just seems like a never ending process if they aren't....

Are they really that easy to break?

My friend told me he broke his as well and the Downward Strum on the Guitar is also broken.

I purchased this as a X-mas gift for my bros, but I don't want it to break down on them.

Do you guys get the replacement parts from EA/Harmonix or do you guys have some sort of Replacement Plan/Warranty from the Retailers?

You have to get the replacements directly from EA. You can't take it back to the store if something breaks.

So what would happen if you purchased a Replacement Plan/Warranty on Rock Band?

Best Buy offers a Replacement Plan on Rock Band, but I'm not sure how that would work out.

My buddy made a "no shoes" rule on his drums. Won't let anyone drum with shoes on ever since he broke his first one. EA replaced his kit. He hasn't had any problems with the kit since the "no shoes" rule. If you got a store warranty from the place you purchased, then they should replace it.

Are they really? I wonder if they do replace the whole bundle then if it breaks.

I was reading on the gamespot forums about how some kid got ripped off by best buy. He went to go get his 360 replaced (he had the product replacement plan) because he got the RROD. They said that they don't replace the consoles but only "fix" them. So who knows.

I never use shoes on the pedal. I'm always in my socks and as best as I can I try not to put overly too much force. But I don't know, sometimes I have to when going fast.

Nothing broke yet on it. Although my guitar down strum did, I'm just waiting for the new guitar.

Going back to my question, is the replacement designed differently as to avoid the stress between the spring and the joint?

Quick queston for you Soldat,since you are doin teh drums right now...

How do you activate the overdrive?From what i've seen in vids its the wierd custom thing or whatever that ends in a big glowing green note....

Yeah, when you get enough overdrive to activate it, these things called "fills" show up where you basically just bang around like a retard and you hit this glowing green note at the end and BAM! overdrive.
