Strike like a Cobra with this extremely tweakable chain-drive double pedal.
This Iron Cobra Rolling Glide double kick pedal features Tama's Cobra Coil. Players desiring the even, uniform response of a round cam favor Rolling 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.
Rolling Glide cam
The Rolling Glide features a true round-shaped sprocket with a double chain for more durability, while still providing the smooth, uniform response of the traditional round cam.
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 the 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 no one thought of it before.
Includes two extra springs, two wood beater heads, two hard rubber beater heads, a Tama keychain, and an accessory bag.

As far as pedals go, there's a reason why percussionists know exactly what you mean when you say- "I play with Cobras". And their famous for a reason- they play great, are versatile, and are tough as nails. And as far as Rolling Glide vs. Power Glide, as long as you have a strong foot, either work well (ive played with both). Also, the rubber beaters sound way better than the felt ones, so thats another reason to get these. Plus- you get a flashlight!!!
Ill start with a short story, like most drummers i started on those awful pdp pedals, i got lucky and moved up to eliminators fairly quickly which where great to a certian extent im always happy with pearl hardware but they just couldnt keep up and after beating the hell out of them they started to give out and die. so i went to guitar center and tried all the pedals including an axis xl2 they had used, and a brand new demon drive. I liked the axis okay but if your twitching out then there not for you, the demon drives were fantastic but being first generation i found alot of issues that i hope 2nd generation can fix. then i tried the iron cobra rolling glide and i gotta say the power, speed, and smoothness i experienced i didnt really expect, people say these pedals cant keep up with axis and trick, but thats not true you can adjust them to feel just like an axis, i can heel toe quads on this no problem i have size 13 feet so my eliminators where a little harder because of the shape of the pedal. Everything on this pedal is built like a tank i was adjusting the slave pedal with the master in my lap and it fell off my lap and slammed agains the camshaft and it didnt even seperate. Im extremely impressed with this pedal and the bonus pack with the extra beaters is awesome i recommend the rubber beaters, if you think about it the beaters are $20 each everywhere and you get 4 beaters free thats $80 worth of beaters!! If your having a problem ho humming about what pedal to get this one is for you. you cant go wrong. BUY IT
