Mean, Intrusive, powerful, efficient.

By the design of Gibraltar's flagship series bass pedals, when you take it out of the box, you just know this thing is going to do everything your foot wants it to. It's got a stealth design on the pedal board and a solid aluminum stabilizing "rock" plate. The main concern with any drum pedal however, is feel.

The 9611 Strap Drive system creates a fast responsive feel, like playing on air. A durable Kevlar strap over metal CAM is a simple design that gives increased speed and response to the player.

Feel is where the genius of the Gibraltar pedal design shines bright. These drive systems come with loads of adjustability so you can tune and fine tune to perfection.

Each adjustment can be made efficiently and on-the fly either by hand or with one of the 3 tools stored on board. Spring tension is easily adjusted from ridiculously high rebound to super floppy with the turn of a thumbscrew at the base of the spring. Beater travel distance can be tweaked with a drum key. The axle at the point under which this clamp grabs is also knurled for non-slip operation. This also provides for indexed tuning and is marked with three lines as reference points. Beater height is also set with a drum key and memorized with a memory lock. The lock makes quick work of setting up the pedal and ensures perfect positioning every time. The bass drum hoop clamp is tightened by a wing nut, conveniently positioned at the right side of the pedal board. Say goodbye to bloody knuckles from trying to reach under your pedal to attach it. And as if all of that weren't enough, the position of the beater can be moved laterally with a quick turn of an Allen head setscrew if you plan to use the pedal with percussion brackets.

The no-nonsense design of the Intruder bass drum pedal shows these things mean business. The base of the pedal is now solid aluminum with a strategically placed bead in the middle. This ensures maximum rigidity while keeping the overall weight to a minimum. Attached to this plate is also the on-board tool storage with the included drum key and two Allen wrenches. The pedal board is also aluminum, eliminating any possibility of flex. Choice areas machined out of the pedal board save weight and add to the stealth look. The uprights of the pedal, when looked at closely have a slight curve backward (away from the drum head) to put the axis of the beater in a more perfect location than a traditionally designed upright. These uprights are bearing loaded for maximum fluidity. Also loaded with a die-cast bearing is the upper attachment of the spring to the axle. Putting a bearing in the spring ring minimizes wear and eliminates friction, adding again to the fluid motion. Each of these features enables the drive system to put maximum power to the beater (or beaters).

These kick drum pedals come pre-assembled for plug-n-play operation. Simply drop in the beater and your ready to get kickin'. The beaters are 2-sided for two vastly different sounds. A curved felt side or a flat plastic side will suit any genre of music. Combine that with a pivoting head and you get a perfect strike regardless of the size of your bass drum. Each pedal also comes with its own gig bag for safe transportation.

The no-bull design of the Gibraltar Intruder is all about power and efficiency. The Intruder brings to the table both and looks good doing it. They will definitely knock your socks off.

Powerful Build, Versatile Pedal That Will Last

By lomamonster

Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Strap-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

After over 35 years with a Rogers Tilt-O-Matic bass drum pedal, I was inspired to buy the Gibraltar Intruder after intensive review. I have had it for a week, and have noticed a couple of things drummers might find important.The pedal comes set up in a really low foot angle and I found it necessary to first adjust the spring angle on the upper bar by loosening the lug on the upper right of the top frame and rotating it to point straight down on the spring. That gave the pedal slightly more upward angle and I adjusted the spring tension a bit higher to begin.I was still not satisfied with the pedal angle so I took a look at the strap itself and noticed that it is not as pictured even in the spare parts picture (I also ordered a spare kevlar strap with the purchase). It only has mount holes on the extremities (one on each end), and not two on one end, one on the other. So I dissembled the screw mount on the lower side, moved the strap as far as it would go under the pedal, and drilled a new hole to contain the mount screw and therefore shorten the strap and gain more pedal height. Although the drum key adjustable mount screw is convenient, I would suggest replacing it with an equivalent screw with a flat top head (either phillips or regular head), as the screw is so long that it will click on the bottom of the pedal mount as it comes from the factory with such a low setting.Also, after adjusting the spring, make sure to secure the round set knob on the top or it will vibrate and make unpleasant noise. The only other thing I might add is that the entire pedal mechanism stands so high that it actually is difficult to adjust the beater height so that it strikes the actual middle of my 22 inch bass drum. I do not like short beater settings, so I am having to put up with some of that at present, as it strikes high on the drum.Overall, I would say that I am pleased with the exceptions of the above and would only add that the entire weight of the assembly is enormous compared to my previous pedal and definitely not as fast (yet!).

Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Strap-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

I have owned Ludwig, Pearl, Axis and this Gibraltar pedal. The gibraltar pedal beats them all, hands down! I have a Ludwig Centennial kit with a 22x20 bass and this pedal makes that bass BOOM! There are not too many adjustments that I really think make pedals too difficult to use, but just enough to make it work. I can get more power out of this pedal than any of the other pedals I mentioned earlier. Great price as well.

Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Strap-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

OK I haven't had this pedal long but, it's the best I have ever played. Don't remember what Dad's Singerland set had though. Better than the Tama that came with a Imperialstar set. Better than the 2 prowler pedals I had on my double ddrum set. I get it going with 2 of these fast. Don't slide on carpet at all. Sweet.
