Tama Speed Cobra Double Bass Drum PedalDetails
Over the years, one of the greatest challenges facing drum pedal manufacturers has been to provide a double pedal that "does it all". Or at the very least, focuses on the most critical features that drummers absolutely demand to enhance their performance. A difficult task, by any means. By today's standards the two most important features desired are speed and power.

With most pedals, if you adjust the playability to address speed, you can sometimes lose power. And if you focus primarily on the feeling of power, you sometimes lose the desired speed. Now, the rules have changed. TAMA has a new pedal that delivers not only pure raw aggression and power, but lightening fast speed!
Speed Cobra's overwhelmingly fast action is a result of several newly developed mechanisms such as the FASTBALL Bearing and LiteSprocket. Plus, the new Projector Beater gives your bass drum sound increased projection and richer resonance. The recessed footboard angle, combined with the newly developed Super Spring, allows you to play incredible dynamics and fluid speed without experiencing muscle strain. Speed Cobra's smooth and stable action is based on the Iron Cobra's prominent heritage and allows you to play every possible delicate nuance to create your own personal playing style.
Speed Cobra's extreme velocity and serious power feels like nothing you've ever played before.
A specially designed pedal board for the Speed Cobra series. By designing the footboard longer than Iron Cobra, it rapidly accelerates the power and speed of the beater stroke, with less physical effort than ever before. Additionally, the smoother playing surface reduces friction between your foot and the footboard, allowing more precise control and flexibility.
To continuously play fast passages, your pedal action has to feel light for less stress and muscle fatigue. The Recessed Setting position makes it possible to achieve a perfect balance between the natural playing feel of the Chain Drive's motion and lighter action. Also by changing the bearing's framework structure, this produces less stress on the FASTBALL bearing and makes a huge difference in the total feel. As a result, about 20% less exertion is required to produce the same result in power and feel found in existing current models (PAT.PENDING).
Created based on the super accurate bearing used in PC hard drives, ABS systems in automobiles, and so on. This ultra-precise machine technology produces highly accurate revolving movement and high durability in even the toughest environment.
We adopted the true round shaped "LiteSprocket" for natural feel and smooth action. Compared with Iron Cobra's sprocket, this version decreases its weight by 40%. It revolves naturally and smoothly, providing a lighter feel.
Specially designed for the Speed Cobra to give the bass drum more sound projection and rich resonance. The convex head shape focuses the power generated by the beater stroke's action to the smaller surface area. This angle gives you a more focused attack and punchy sonic penetration. Rotate the beater head for larger surface contact and get a fatter sound with extremely powerful volume.
The newly developed Super Spring needs less exertion in the beginning of pedal action. When the beater rebounds from the bass drum head, you can easily feel a quicker response, and by adjusting the Cobra Coil underneath the footboard, you can acquire a smoother feel.
