Solid, well-made... Alesis rocks!
When this pedal arrived I was actually surprised- it was so much more than I had expected. It's rugged and well-crafted- a real chain-drive pedal with a compact beater/trigger configuration. I hooked it up with a DM-5 and Control Pad to make a compact teaching-kit at my studio.
I usually order from another company (out of habit) but this was a Sweetwater exclusive so I "took a chance" and they really delivered in every way!
