Overview

The Gibraltar Catapult Linear Motion Bass Drum Pedal was designed to provide a true response from the players' foot to the surface of the bass drum head by utilizing natural motion from the ankle. Upon consulting with a reputable fitness research agency, Gibraltar designed the Catapult pedal to allow the natural function of the extensor and flexor muscles.

Conventional bass drum pedal designs utilize frames with cam drives attached to springs. While pressing down on the pedal board, these springs produce a resistance promoting speed and power. In extended playing situations, this resistance often causes fatigue to the muscles of the lower leg and foot resulting in hindered playing and technique. Careful observation of the muscle groups used with a conventional-style pedal showed that the return stroke or upward movement of the foot was accentuated by the return spring. This caused major resistance, hindering the natural motion of the ankle.

Gibraltar's Catapult Linear Motion pedal (GCLMSP) was designed to permit the extensor and flexor muscles to function naturally, allowing the ankle and corresponding muscles to utilize a full range of movement. The result: A remarkable increase in muscle comfort, endurance, and precision. The mechanical advantage of the GCLMSP is total harmony with the biomechanics of the natural movement of the foot.

Rugged Pedal

By Al budaszewski

from Virginia Beach, Virginia

Comments about Gibraltar Catapult Linear Motion Single Bass Drum Pedal with Bag:

This pedal is designed well. it is very stable, responsive and sturdy. The only thing that I'm not fond of is the beater. It is awkward because if your technique isn't precise it will impact the head with an unusual slapping sound. It is also too light to provide the solid thump that i prefer. This issue is easily solved by purchasing an after market beater tp provide the added weight and rounded shaper that provide the power needed to make your bass drum sound right. The responsiveness of this pedal is a pleasure to play. I play a set with 2 floor toms and since this pedal requires that you sit back a few inches further from your bass drum, i'm now alot closer to my 18" floor tom. overall, this is a great product that requires minumal tweaking for a road worthy product. i would recommend it highly to anyone who requires beefy hardware in a working band.

Gibraltar Catapult About Time!

By Spec

from Australia

Comments about Gibraltar Catapult Linear Motion Single Bass Drum Pedal with Bag:

Finally a product that plays through all dynamic ranges and requires no fiddley adjustments. I found it to be super responsive .I can play 2 feet on the single pedal and play as fast as humanly possible. Try It out! I play some rock and jazz gigs. I can adjust my beater height with no adverse effect on the pedal set up. I just change the height and play. Awsome Job Gibraltar . When is the Double pedal Comming Out?
