YAMAHA FP9500C Single Foot Pedal – Double Chain Drive and convertible to the Belt Drive. A belt is included.
The YAMAHA FP-9500C is a double chain drive single pedal, and includes a woven nylon strap that can be installed using a drum key. The double chain drive is the most popular model, the Yamaha top of the line and is ideal for heavy players.
The nylon strap is growing in popularity, is quiet and has a light, quick feel to it. You might switch between the double chain and the nylon strap depending on the kind of music you will be playing. The FP-9500C has adjustments for beater angle, footboard angle, and spring tension. The hole in the beater hub is teardrop shaped so it securely holds the beater shaft and keeps the new two-sided beater from spinning. The new beater is felt on one side, and hard plastic on the other.
The side-adjustable hoop clamp holds firmly to different thickness hoops, and tightens with a wing bolt. The FP-9500C ships in a hard sided soft case for transport.
YAMAHA Pedal Frame Structure: This Yamaha original design incorporates a sub-frame just below the rocker shaft to deliver greater stability and durability. This keeps the bearings in alignment and drummers will experience smoother, more stable action.
