SONOR is proud to announce the result of an inspired collaboration between Jojo Mayer and SONOR, The Perfect Balance Bass Drum Pedal.
The philosophy behind this pedal is to achieve perfect harmony and interplay between the pedal’s moving parts and the drummer’s foot. Due to careful design and perfectly balanced linear action, any non-vital adjustments are obsolete and omitted. Other than the pedal’s unique folding and mounting mechanism, all adjustments such as spring tension, footboard height and beater angle reflect classic industry standards.
Jojo Mayer states “The Perfect Balance Pedal is a carefully calibrated system that optimizes the linear translation of your foot movements. Essentially, it could be described as the soul and feel of a vintage pedal reincarnated in the technology of a 21st century body. The most important feature of this pedal is that it will not put any obstacles in your way to develop a level of speed, control and power that can not be obtained with most pedals."
“We at SONOR USA are thrilled that we are able to provide drummers with such an inspiring and unique musical instrument”, said Product Manager Larry Nelson.
Some of the many features of the pedal include:
- LOW MASS DRIVE SYSTEM -The drive cam and beater hub are streamlined into a single unit for low mass and carefully calibrated for perfectly balanced strokes. The round cam design creates linear acceleration, which is a major advantage for many hybrid drumming techniques.
- BALLISTIC FIBER STRAP - Ballistic fiber strap minimizes inertia of the drive system and offers a quicker and smoother response than chain or solid drives.
- ELONGATED BOARD - Elongated and smooth footboard adds more leverage to the stroke and allows extended range of movement for heel toe and sliding techniques.
- FOLDING MECHANISM - Folds the pedal into compact size for easy transportation with the push of a button. For extended lifespan, the spring can be dislocated and secured with a magnet when folded.
- SELF-MOUNTING CLAMP - Quick mounts the pedal with a single motion. Clamp adjusts to all hoop thicknesses.
Each pedal comes with a carrying bag.
