The chain drive gains tension gradually throughout the stroke as the pedal is depressed. Switching the cam from C1 to C3 reduces the initial tension.
The direct drive gains tension after the tension from the first step recedes. After initially dropping, the tension from the direct drive increases steadily throughout the stroke. Switching the cam from D1 to D3 increases the initial tension.
The direct drive creates a direct link between the footboard and the beater, conveying the movement of the drummer's foot to the beater instantaneously. The link can be moved into three positions, allowing the drummer to fine tune the pedal's action to match their preferred performance.
Axle-Stabilizing Bearing Chamber
The frame and bearing cover (blue parts) are independently smoothed and precisely fabricated before assembly, allowing them to to be aligned with the central axis of the shaft and ball bearings to unleash a smooth rotation.
Low-Profile Stabilizing Hinge
The hinge base and cover (blue parts) are independently smoothed and precisely fabricated before assembly, allowing smooth footboard performance.
Easy-Access Auto-Lock Spring Adjustment
Moving the spring adjustment knob upward greatly simplifies the traditionally troublesome tension adjustment process. The knob is locked at a 90-degree angle which prevents it from coming loose on its own.
Attaching weights to the beater allows drummers to attain their preferred sound and feel. Aluminum (3g) and brass (9g) weights are both available and can be attached and removed easily.
Independent Beater/Footboard Angle Adjustment
The beater angle and footboard angle can be independently and freely adjusted. The inclusion of an angle checker allows drummers to easily re-create their preferred settings.
Ball Bearing Drive Conection
The tip of the footboard comes equipped with ball bearings, allowing even smoother performance.
Anti-Skid Heel Spikes
The heel of the pedal comes equipped with spikes that prevent slipping when playing and provide improved stability
The FP9 Series comes with its own semi-hard carrying case.
