Strike like a Cobra with this Kevlar strap-drive pedal.
This Iron Cobra Flexi-Glide single 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 is. 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.
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.

I got this pedal today and right out of the box ready to play, no problems. Played with it for a half hour and one thing i can say is that its very similar in feel to the power glide i have. It is smoother but also lacks power. I'd recommend this to low to medium volume players or if you have a good mic system. But for me I'm gonna try out the other pedals on here
i've had this pedal for a couple of months now and i still cant believe how much better i am at double bass(i have the double pedal). its been smooth and consistent since ive got it, and i only had to play around with the settings for about half an hour before i got them to where i wanted them.also, i dont think this pedal lacks power at all. it seems to be able to hit very hard, and i'm able to reach some pretty decent speed with it. all in all, it's a good pedal that will most likely last at least 6 years, if not more.
