    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 new stealth design on the pedal board and a solid aluminum stabilizing "rock" plate. The main concern with any pedal however, is feel.

    The 9611 Dual Chain Drive system delivers a solid powerful feel to the player. The dual chain fits into a felt-lined channel of the cam providing smooth, quite performance with lots of power.

    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 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).

    The double pedals all have a slave pedal with the same fixed Rock plate and the same adjustments for you tune to mimic your main pedal to a tee. The linkage between the two pedals has 2 case-hardened universal joints. Two length adjustment points allow you to vary the distance between your two pedals from around 14" to 20". All attachment and adjustment points are double-locked with 2 drum key screws.

    These pedals come pre-assembled for plug-n-play operation. Simply drop in the beater and you're 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 bass drum pedal also comes with its own gig bag for safe transportation.

    The no-bull design of the Intruder pedal 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.

      Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      This is a great pedal for the money. Ive had this pedal for almost 2 years and its worked great for me. Have had to replace the tension springs it came with over time 'cause my leg strength has gotten better. It comes with good solid tension sprigs with it tho! I love Gibraltar Hardware and thats all i use.

          These are great pedals i own iron cobras and dw 9000 and i like like this pedal it feels great you adjust it in every way to suit your style. alot of people want to play the norm instead of what feels good and this pedal feels great. buy it you wont be disappointed the only pedal i like more than this one is the g-class single pedal and i wish Gibraltar would hurry and make the g-class in a double pedal

          Great pedal, good price

          By RSJL

          Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          While i do not own these personally i have been using a set for about a month now. My bassist trys to play the drums and he let me use them. They are very solid pedals. It does take a lot of power compared to Axis for example. But its not a problem for me, i actually liked these better than the Axis just because the axis are very sensitive. If you are looking to play 64th notes non stop these might not be the pedals for you. But if your looking for a great power to speed ratio i recommend these.

          Great Pedal but takes some getting used to.

          Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I got this pedal last Christmas and the only problem that I noticed with it is that it's very heavy for a pedal and tend to take alot to get used to do to the pressure you need to put on the pedal. But overall its a good pedal even the though the price is considerably high.

          These Get The Job Done!!

          By 3rd Wheel-YqhKE

          from Oakland

          Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I bought these pedals because I wanted durability, adjustability and consistency at a reasonable price. These Intruders feel solid and smooth, however, if you get into "double bass" playing, you will find that at faster tempos, at 135 bpm's and up, you will have to work hard. So, although it's not a feature mentioned anywhere at all, you can adjust the cam for more attack, thus raising the footboard angle. I'm very pleased with these pedals, but will be upgrading, just haven't decided on what to get next. But if your a casual player and want quality, these are a must buy. But, if you're going to be playing double bass drum patterns and utilzing a lot of them in fills, then you should look into the Iron Cobras or the DW's...

          I Dont Reccomend

          By Only Mapex

          from carthage, N.C.

          Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I was very dissapointed with these pedals when I set them up. The problem I have with these are that the hoop clamp is not centered on the bass hoop. Instead they are offset to the right so when you try to tighten it down it pulls the right side of the footboard off the carpet or floor which was very annoining. Second the loosest setting for the springs are to tight to play fast. Gibraltar makes some of the best hardware I know of but dont buy these pedals. Im buying pearl eliminators instead.

          Just as good as their hardware!!

          By Kyle-a0Q3F

          from Upstate NY

          Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Dual-Chain Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          So I wanted to get a better pedal...I've owned DW7002pt doubles and played higher end pedals like pearl eliminators and iron cobras. This pedal is the perfect balance between higher end function and reasonable price. This pedal does have a very LIQUID or fluid feel...immediately I could feel my legs relax while I let the pedal help me power through heavy double bass fills and blasts. The pedal itself it relatively light and comes with a padded case w/ nifty compartments. onboard tool holder with all the wrenches to adjust the pedal. Even the beater heads pivot! For the price this thing is amazing...I would however replace the stock springs right away as they are thin metal and very suseptable to breakage with heavy use or if you just like more tension like me. Always remember to go through each drum key and retighten everyone upon arrival as most will be slightly loose.
