The Iron Cobra 600 series by Tama are a new addition to the Iron Cobra family. Its most striking feature is a changeable cam. Called the "Duo Glide Cam," it allows simple adjustment between a "Power Glide" cam for power and speed, and a true round "Rolling Glide" sprocket for smooth consistency. Drummers can choose the appropriate action based on playing style, musical environment, and personal preference.
Iron Cobra 600 series pedals also feature a newly designed hinge for precise footboard action, and the "Speedo-Ring" rocker cam with a smooth ball bearing. Additionally, this double pedal bears the same heavy-duty Double Chain Drive as 900 series Iron Cobra pedals. The chains offer smooth, accurate action.

So i bought these pedals as my second set of double pedals, replacing my garbage sound percussion pedals, and, well... they're absolutely fantastic. I played a set with the DW 7000's on them and that's when i realized i needed new pedals. But some features on the iron cobras bought me out of DW's business. the reversible sprocket is certainly an amazing feature. Whether you want some smooth, jazzy play or speed metal at 64th's, these pedals will get you where you wanna go and will take you back and forth between the both in about a minute. Of course, being so adapted to cheap pedals, these pedals took some getting used to, and to be honest, i didn't like them at first because they had absolutely no resistance and i was used to dealing with a lot, but after getting used to these smooth beasts, I could never go back to those trashy sound percussion's. I can play 32nds all day long without tiring my legs, and triplets and quadruplets can be played at ease with insane speed. The the joints of this double pedal aren't lubricated and never need to be, so the only thing you'll have to maintain is the chain to avoid rust. Spring tension is mind bogglingly easy to adjust and can be done in literally 15 seconds tops. the footboards are medium long length, and, in my opinion, are absolutely perfect for the heal toe yet aren't too long for a shortboard enthusiast to get used to. the beaters are double sided but i'll never use the plastic side; the standard cotton-tipped side feels amazing. There is absolutely no delay from the moment you push on the pedal to the moment the pedal hits the base drum, unlike the dw's. all in all, this is an amazing intermediate level pedal for a price that doesn't melt your wallet. if you're thinking about the 3000s, throw those thoughts out of the window and fly them into to this one. if you're thinking about the 3000s because you like the heavier, gliding feel, buy these pedals, get dw's beaters, and switch the sprocket to the rolling glide.
I tried a dw 3000 pedal first based on great reviews. I was pretty dissapointed when it felt the same as my $40 pdp pedal. So I returned it and got this and I am very glad I did. The build quality is second to none and it feels great right out of the box. I know there are not many reviews on this model but don't let that fool you.
I used to have an old single kick pedal which I used for years. But after I broke I had to find a replacement fast since I play at a church. When I first layed eyes on the Iron Cobra 600 I feel in love at first sight. My Pastor bought this and I set it up at our church. This pedal is very smooth and the adjustments are great! It's my first Double bass pedal and it is awesome! Also with the reversible cams, you can easily switch from a power glide to a rolling glide. You don't need to buy two pedals to experiment with what you prefer, this pedal is all you need. The good thing about this pedal is that you can put a cobra coil on the pedal to make it faster so it can be like the 900 series Iron Cobras. The dual chain makes the movement of the pedal very smooth. This the best cheapest Foot pedal from Tama hands Down!
I had a DW 7000 double and I traded it in to get this beast. This pedal is so smooth the new hinge is incredible, and the Duo cam is sick. It is just built so heavy duty yet its still way lighter than the DW 7000. This pedal is just insane, you have to check it out! This pedal is the real deal...for $250.00!
