With a design conceived over six years of tireless personal experimentation, the Jojo Mayer Perfect Balance Pedal by Sonor is a carefully calibrated system that optimizes the linear translation of your foot movements and makes many adjustments expendable. It possesses the soul and feel of a vintage pedal reincarnated in the technology of a 21st century body.

Starting at its foundation, this pedal is engineered to fuse tradition and innovation. The drive cam and beater hub are streamlined into a single unit for low mass and calibrated for perfectly balanced strokes. A round cam design creates linear acceleration that is an advantage for many hybrid techniques.

The pedal offers a sensitivity that borders on intuition. An elongated and smooth footboard adds more leverage to the stroke and allows extended range of movement for heel toe and sliding techniques. Ballistic fiber strap minimizes inertia of the drive system and offers a quicker and smoother response than chain or solid drives. For those who prefer the strength and feel of chain, the pedal can easily be retrofitted with a double chain.

A revolutionary quick, self-mount affixes the pedal with a single motion, while the clamp adjusts to all hoop thicknesses. Magnetic spring dock secures spring during transportation that dramatically extends the life of the spring. In additional, standard allen screws are metric items that can be obtained at every good hardware store. No need to special order replacement screws any longer.

For the traveling percussionist, this pedal also easily folds into a compact size with the click of a button. Compact Tarpaulin style pedal bag makes bulky carrying cases obsolete. Includes shoulder strap.

Comments about Sonor Jojo Mayer Perfect Balance Single Bass Drum Pedal with Gig Bag:

I just recently bought this pedal a couple days ago and it is perfectly made i must say. I was very Impressed. The pedal delivers a very powerful stroke. It works very well for Jojo's type of techniques. If you are a fan of the axis pedal this pedal might not be for you. it has the feel of a traditional pedal with the advantage of that extra space from the elongated foot board and single post construction to experiment on for some new foot work/techniques. This is not a lightning fast pedal like axis but yet is just as smooth and very powerful. Unlike axis which i have previously owned wont fall apart on you if you are a heavy player. I am very satisfied and from what I have experienced so far i will be playing this pedal throughout the rest of my drumming career! You must definitely check it out at your local G.C.

      Comments about Sonor Jojo Mayer Perfect Balance Single Bass Drum Pedal with Gig Bag:

      Jo Jo Mayer is one of my favorite drummers and I love his heal to toe playing. I bought this in hopes that it would make my heal to toe better. It worked OK, not great for about three months and then started to literally fall apart. The pedal has four plastic pieces that touch the hoop and every time I had to adjust the pedal which was often these piece became dislodged. I could never get it to it flat no matter what type of surface I was on and in the end the nuts on the spring started to fall out while using it causing you to basically have no pedal. I called the people I bought it from after four months and they graciously refunded my money when I sent it back. I could have sold it but good conscience would not allow me. Back to my Iron Cobra 900 and that is a reliable a you can get. Good luck and good health

      Comments about Sonor Jojo Mayer Perfect Balance Single Bass Drum Pedal with Gig Bag:

      I had high expectations for this pedal, after seeing Jojo Mayer's bass drum technique video. That video made me a strong believer in his approach to playing the bass drum. In the video, he spends some time talking about how many bass drum pedals currently on the market limit one's ability to implement the technique. This may sound like a shameless plug on Jojo's behalf for his pedal. It's not because, in fact, he talks about how one could use one of the vintage pedals that enable the technique. However, the problem with the old pedals is that they are hard to come by and, even if you can get your hands on one, it's hard if not impossible to find replacement parts which are likely needed for a vintage pedal. Hence the reason Jojo partnered with Sonor to create the pedal. I didn't realize how much my pedal (a Yamaha pedal from the 90s) was limiting my bass drum ability until I tried his pedal. Simply put, his pedal exceeded the high expectations I had for it.
