The Cobra Beater was developed to bring out maximum potential of a bass drum.Butadiene Rubber has unique characteristics. It offers strong resistance to wear, lighter weight and providing consistent and articulate sound with strong attack. And because of the thicker rubber part, the sound is fat yet focused even at lower volumes. The conventional approach to the spring assembly has been to anchor the bottom of the spring while the top of the spring is being pulled from various angles throughout the pedal's cycle. But a spring being pulled on at an angle represents wasted energy and causes turbulence. The Swivel Spring Tight assembly solves this problem, recapturing that lost energy and optimizing smoothness through the use of a contoured assembly that allows the base to swivel freely with the spring. This enables a straight spring pull during the pedal's entire cycle, resulting in the smoothest, lightest action ever found on a bass drum pedal. TAMA now introduces Para-Clamp II -an even more clever and useful version of the popular original. The Para-Clamp II is capable of gripping the widest variety of bass drum hoops ever.
The improvement is largely due to its newly designed three-dimensional rubber grip. Holding power is increased and the possibility of scratching the hoop is eliminated.Furthermore, set-up and breakdown are easily facilitated, while sitting on a throne because the T-bolt of the Para-Clamp II Pro is on the side of the footboard, rather than under it. To reinforce durability, the Iron Cobra 900 Series features a thicker 6 mm diameter shaft. Oiles® bearings create far less friction than standard ball bearings. They also eliminate unwanted side-to-side motion while providing superior durability. 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. The Quick-Hook not only allows for easy setup and tear-down but also streamlines the pedal, allowing quick stowaway in the hard case without removing the beater. Weighing in at 40% less than our previous Iron Cobra cam, the round, Rolling Glide "LiteSprocket" revolves naturally and smoothly, contributing to a lighter more responsive feel. Wide baseplate and frame for exceptional stability.
Para Clamp II Pro keeps your pedal flat on the floor, regardless of bass drum angle. 3-piece hinge construction with hinge guard block for long-term durability. Fast Foot pedalboard design accelerates the power and speed of the beater stroke, requiring minimal physical effort.Smoother playing surface reduces friction between foot and the footboard for precise control and flexibility. Recessed setting strikes a balance between natural feel and lighter action. Ultra-tough Fastball Bearing (the same kind of bearing mechanism in high-end automotive ABS systems) produces super-accurate rotation. Round LiteSprocket provides natural feel and smooth action while decreasing weight by 40%.
Super Spring requires less exertion in the beginning of pedal action, allowing you to play smoothly, without sacrificing impact. Vari-Pitch Beater Holder allows you to adjust the beater angle independently of the footboard angle.
