Strike like a Cobra with this Kevlar strap-drive double pedal.
This Iron Cobra Flexi-Glide double kick pedal features Tama's Cobra Coil. Players desiring a traditional, floating action favor Flexi-Glide strap-drive models. Tama's innovative Cobra Coil pedal spring accelerates the return of the footboard to its original position, resulting in an unbelievably effortless action that sets the already smooth Iron Cobra apart from all other pedals on the market.
The Flexi-Glide pedal features a strap made of Kevlar, which is many times more durable than the old-style nylon and leather straps.
Until now, the only way to adjust your beater stroke action was to tighten the pedal spring. Sometimes that did the job. More often, the action just felt sluggish and heavier. Tama's latest innovation, the Cobra Coil, simply and easily solves the problem. A steel spring quickly returns the footboard to its original position, so the feel of the Iron Cobra is exceptional. The Cobra Coil can also be adjusted to different positions on the new Iron Cobra footboard base plate.
Cobra pedal housing
Iron Cobra pedals come equipped with nylon insulators for the bearing housings inside the pedal frame. The insulators keep the bearings centered in place and secured in the most stable position. This ensures proper bearing support for the drive shaft without unnecessary stress. The end result of these improvements is the smoothest pedal action possible.
Tama eliminated another source of friction by replacing the traditional nylon rocker cam with the Speedo-Ring, a rocker cam with a high quality built-in ball bearing rocker.
Oiles bearing hinge
Offering even less friction than standard ball bearings, Oiles bearings also eliminate side-to-side motion and provide superior durability, which is why they're used in the aerospace industry.
Twisting springs severely reduce pedal smoothness. Spring Tight, a clever half-moon shaped spring tension rod, keeps the spring from twisting, so there's never any loss of power transmission.
Iron Cobra beater
The Iron Cobra beater adjusts the beater head angle to guarantee a flat hit to the bass drum head every time, translating your strike into maximum power. In addition, it's easy to obtain different bass drum sounds simply by changing the beater head.
Vari-Pitch beater holder
Vari-Pitch beater angle adjustments are completely independent of footboard angle. The Speedo-Ring allows you to adjust the angle of the footboard link independently of the beater angle. And with the combination of the Speedo-Ring and the Vari-Pitch, you can achieve any kind of stroke and also enjoy improved playability.
Para-Clamp keeps your pedal flat on the floor no matter what your bass drum angle. The Para-Clamp is tightened from the side, so you never have to insert your finger under the footboard. And since you can clamp your pedal to hoops up to 14mm (9/16") in thickness, Iron Cobra will fit just about any bass drum on the market.
Tight Lock makes sure the beater shaft stays put by fixing and locking the square head bolt, which fixes the beater shaft.
To keep left-side double pedals from walking, a special stabilizer is mounted to the outside frame. This augments the stability of the floor anchor bolts.
The aluminum-made connecting rod has made the light weight and smooth adjustment possible. Instead of the screws fixing the inner rod directly, the small plate inside spreads the pressure appropriately, so it can be tightened more securely without damaging the rod. This new design prevents the separation of the inner and outer rods when adjusting the length, which reduces trouble during setup and teardown.
Quick-Hook not only allows rapid spring attachment and reattachment for rapid set up and tear down, it also eliminates wobbling and allows maximum power transmission to the Speedo-Ring. Plus, you never have to worry about it slipping off during performance.
You know what pedals go through night after night. After being stomped on over and over, they get thrown in bags and road cases where there's more hard rock and roll than during the gig itself.
That's why precision instruments like Tama's Iron Cobras come with a specially designed protective carrying case. It's amazing that no one thought of it before.
