Definitely a better pedal than the stock ones. Durable and better sensitivity.
On another note, rumor has it that Activision will seize further production of the Guitar Hero series of games due to high cost of licensing impacted by changes in the music industry. That's kinda sad cause The guitar hero franchise bridged the younger generation to bands they have never heard before. It certainly taught my kids a thing or two about the great rock bands from the yester-years.
