An adjustable direct-drive single pedal that comes with a transport case.

This is a direct-drive single pedal, with a solid cast link between the rocker shaft and the footboard. Direct-drives push the footboard back on rebound, giving the pedal a quicker response. Many drummers that play heel-down prefer the feel of a direct drive. There are adjustments for beater angle, footboard angle, and spring tension on this pedal and the pedal frame has a stabilizer bar cast into it below the rocker shaft to eliminate flex, keep the bearings in alignment, and give the pedal a smooth feel. A teardrop-shaped hole in the beater hub securely holds the beater shaft and keeps it from spinning. Included is a double-sided beater that is felt on one side, and hard plastic on the other. The side-adjustable hoop clamp holds firmly to your kick drum hoop, and tightens with a wing bolt. Transport is easy with the included hard-sided soft case.

      Comments about Yamaha Direct-Drive Bass Drum Pedal:

      As an older guy, I've used Ludwig Speed Kings most of my drumming career. About five years ago I got an electronic kit and an Iron Cobra double pedal. The bearings in the IC are great, but set up and adjustment of the pedal is difficult, and for me it would never do exactly what my foot told it to do.

      I got the Yamaha DD pedal to replace a cheap pedal that came with a small five-piece kit, and instantly liked it. It is much more responsive to my foot than the IC is. I suspect that this is due to the direct drive, which is what the old Speed Kings had, and what my foot got used to over 30 years. The bearings in the Yamaha do not seem the equal of those in the IC, but the pedal is actually easier for me to use. The adjustments on the Yamaha are MUCH easier than on the IC.

      I had contemplated trying the Pearl P3000D, but for the price difference, I'm glad I went this route. I've not had the pedal long, but it does quick doubles easily, and has done everything my foot has asked it to.

      Comments about Yamaha Direct-Drive Bass Drum Pedal:

      Axis, DW, Iron Cobra, and Trick Pro 1V move over, this pedal is exceptional. It's fast, smooth, easy to control, and built to last a lifetime. Here are some of the highlights - the pedal is superior in its craftsmanship (vintage Yamaha) and, although not engineered like Axis or Trick, it is smoother than both and excels whether you need to be fast, slow, loud or soft. It allows you to exhibit a substantial amount of finesse in any situation. It is also easy to adjust and provides a substantial amount of variation to the user. The best thing about the pedal, though, is that it is much cheaper than the equivalent pedals manufactured by or in the lines mentioned above.
