OVERVIEW

Smoothness. Adjustability. Stability.

This Iron Cobra Power Glide is a twin kick pedal for the serious player. The pedal's solid foundation can be attributed to its Super Stabilizer design that incorporates a wider baseplate and frame for absolute stability. At each pedals heel, the specially designed 3-piece Hinge Guard Block provides a more durable hinge point and also lengthens the footboard for increased leverage.

At the heart of the Iron Cobra is the Power Glide cam, which is now the lighter, smoother, more natural feeling LiteSprocket design. This cam is an offset double-chained Power Glide cam, which accelerates the stroke powerfully as it travels toward the bass drum head. The Speedo-Ring rocker cam is yet another example of streamlining, eliminating spring friction with a high-quality, built-in ball bearing rocker. The Quick-Hook spring attachment eliminates wobbling, provides maximum power transmission to the Speedo-Ring, and helps facilitate quicker setup. To further improve speed and beater stroke action, the adjustable Cobra Coil spring-return constantly works to push the footboard back to its original position, tightening the relationship between players foot and the pedal.

Perhaps one of the most innovative developments of the HP900PWN is its Swivel Spring Tight tension-locking mechanism, which are designed to rock or swivel, allowing freer spring movement and a smoother overall feel. The smartly redesigned Power-Strike Cobra Beater provides a fatter, yet more focused sound and optimizes beater action for strong, precise impact. Finally, the Iron Cobra brings an end to makeshift methods of trying to protect the bass drum hoop: the Para-Clamp II Pro holds the pedal securely to the bass drum hoop without scratching it or slipping, thanks to an enlarged rubber padded clamp piece.

The Iron Cobra HP900PWN includes a custom hardshell carrying case for safe transport.

    Comments about Tama Iron Cobra 900 Power Glide Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I traded in my Pearl Demon Drives for these. Once I found out that TAMA completely remodeled the Iron Cobra's with the new features they have, I was instantly sold. Now having these new Power Glides, I can easily say that I am 100% happy with this trade-in. These new Iron Cobra's feel AMAZING. I love the new beaters, and the pedals really do feel 40% lighter just like the new features say! You walk on clouds with these... I recommend them!

      Comments about Tama Iron Cobra 900 Power Glide Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      These pedal are great! I played the DW pedals for years and only regret now buying Tama previously. These are so smooth and quick. I never in 35 years of playing the drums, experienced pedals of this caliber. If you are looking for faster double strokes with a single foot, then you got to at least try these. Using both will be lightning and its less work on the leg and shin muscles. You wont be disappointed!! Don't get me wrong, my DW pedals are also great to play with, but these are just a little bit better. Definitely worth the money. It comes with a hard case too.

      Comments about Tama Iron Cobra 900 Power Glide Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      I've been playing Iron Cobra pedals since they came out in the '90s. I've owned 3 or 4 of the double pedals and about 5 the single pedals- all Power Glides. Each version I've owned has been slightly different due to Tama's constant design refinement but they all felt very similar. This newest version has the most significant change in feel from the all previous versions. And I'm happy to report that it is an improvement (and I was happy with the previous models). The action is less sluggish, lighter, faster, etc without losing the solid mechanical feel of all the moving parts that is the Iron Cobra's signature (unlike other super-smooth pedals, like an Axis, where you can only feel the spring - too rubbery feeling for my tastes). It's the perfect balance between smoothness, resistance, weight and speed. Also the beater sounds better than the previous design. It gives the same amount of body out of the drum (when letting the beater come off the head) but gives a more pointed attack without sounding "clicky." The result is better definition and what seems to be a little more volume. I can feel the added definition in the footboard so it's easier to feel the drum too. I got used to the new feel in a very short amount of time the first day I used it. Also, the pedal case design is improved; it appears that the hinges and clasps will last longer.
      I subtracted one star because one of the pedals (I bought 4) had a noisy bearing and another had a stiff U-joint on the connecting rod. Although it's a quality control issue, I still believe this is a very high quality and well made pedal. Customer Service immediately took care of it so everything is good now. Otherwise, 5 stars and highly recommended.
