      Gibraltar Intruder Direct-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal (490718)
Availability:  


Mean, Intrusive, powerful, efficient.

By the design of Gibraltar's flagship series bass pedals, when you take it out of the box, you just know this thing is going to do everything your foot wants it to. It's got a new stealth design on the pedal board and a solid aluminum stabilizing "rock" plate. The main concern with any pedal however, is feel.

The 9611 Direct-Drive system uses solid linkage to create a seamless, fast-paced feel drum pedal. The cam shape and linkage combine to deliver power and speed with seamless response.

Feel is where the genius of the Gibraltar design teams shines bright. These drive systems come with loads of adjustability so you can tune and fine tune to perfection.

Each adjustment can be made efficiently and on-the fly either by hand or with one of the 3 tools stored on board. Spring tension is easily adjusted from ridiculously high rebound to super floppy with the turn of a thumbscrew at the base of the spring. Beater travel distance can be tweaked with a drum key. The axle at the point under which this clamp grabs is also knurled for non-slip operation. This also provides for indexed tuning and is marked with three lines as reference points. Beater height is also set with a drum key and memorized with a memory lock. The lock makes quick work of setting up the pedal and ensures perfect positioning every time. The bass drum hoop clamp is tightened by a wing nut, conveniently positioned at the right side of the pedal board. Say goodbye to bloody knuckles from trying to reach under your pedal to attach it. And as if all of that weren't enough, the position of the beater can be moved laterally with a quick turn of an Allen head setscrew if you plan to use the pedal with percussion brackets.

The no-nonsense design of the Intruder pedal shows these things mean business. The base of the pedal is now solid aluminum with a strategically placed bead in the middle. This ensures maximum rigidity while keeping the overall weight to a minimum. Attached to this plate is also the on-board tool storage with the included drum key and two Allen wrenches. The pedal board is also aluminum, eliminating any possibility of flex. Choice areas machined out of the pedal board save weight and add to the stealth look. The uprights of the Intruder pedal, when looked at closely have a slight curve backward (away from the drum head) to put the axis of the beater in a more perfect location than a traditionally designed upright. These uprights are bearing loaded for maximum fluidity. Also loaded with a die-cast bearing is the upper attachment of the spring to the axle. Putting a bearing in the spring ring minimizes wear and eliminates friction, adding again to the fluid motion. Each of these features enables the drive system to put maximum power to the beater (or beaters).

These bass drum pedals come pre-assembled for plug-n-play operation. Simply drop in the beater and your ready to get kickin'. The beaters are 2-sided for two vastly different sounds. A curved felt side or a flat plastic side will suit any genre of music. Combine that with a pivoting head and you get a perfect strike regardless of the size of your bass drum. Each pedal also comes with its own gig bag for safe transportation.

The no-bull design of the Intruder drum pedal is all about power and efficiency. The Intruder brings to the table both and looks good doing it. They will definitely knock your socks off.

  • Light and fast

    As reviewed by Steve M on 9/26/2011

    Coming out of a 4 year hiatus from playing drums, I wanted to replace my old gibralter intruder chain drive with something faster without losing too much power.Do they do it? They sure do.The foot board is a little smaller than my old ones.They feel extremely light so I'm still getting used to them after around 7 rehearsals.I was surprised at the packaging. Nice. The pedals came with carrying bags,stickers, tools,even magnets.With that said, lets get to performance. First, the pedals were a pain to get on the bass drum hoop. You would think that after all these years, they would make something concave on the forks underneath the rim. After all, last time I looked, bass drums were round.My hoops are steel and have a slight flange on the outside diameter.So, I removed the rippled ribber off of the forks,and put a thinner piece of flat rubber on them. Actually, they came with each a piece of such rubber that I didn't know what its for, but used those. Now, this created another problem. Now the pedals rocked back and forth.To fix this,I had to put velcro on the heel of the pedal. In fact,the rubber on the bottom was pretty heavy duty.The velcro on my old ones would of sufficed.Besides, I dont know of any drummer that plays on wooden surfaces.They use carpet.So the rubber was unnecessary.The stock beaters are pretty small and too light for my heavy playing so I have been using my old gibralter universal wood beaters.the plastic piece on the top of the foot board height adjuster which I thought was just a sticker came off.I fixed by glueing it back on.( Only on 1 pedal though) Oh,also my pedals are not like the ones pictured here.Mine came with the long shaft for tightening the pedal to the hoop.its shown with a wing nut sticking out of the base of the pedal.The long shaft is better any ways. Also the screw that clamps on the top inside of the hoop is a pain to get to.A longer tool would of helped. All and all,their worth the money I paid. I wouldn't of paid anymore though. the reason I bought these is how much better can a Demon drive be?Besides, did you see those prices? no way I'm paying that.

  • Great pedal

    As reviewed by Aury on 4/12/2011

    Have been using it for about 2 weeks now and no complaints. It's very sturdy and responsive, a huge difference from chain driven pedals and needs time to get used to. Only thing is that it's much less customizable than the Demon Eliminator, but for the price its definitely worth it.
