Yamaha FP9 Double Chain Single Bass Drum Pedal Easy Access Auto-Lock Spring Adjustment

Easy-Access Auto-Lock Spring Adjustment

Gone are the days of overly complicated tension adjustments. The FP9C features an easy-to-reach auto-lock spring adjustment with an internal ball bearing. The ball bearing allows the piece to move back and forth so it's easy to quickly reach down and adjust on the fly. It also clicks as you're turning. This ensures each adjustment is even, accurate and completely dialed in.

Heavy-Duty Frame and Key Ball Bearing Placement

The FP9C is built like a tank, but drives like a Bentley. The heavy-duty frame stands up to even the hardest hitting lead foot with excellent stability. This, along with key ball bearing placement, ensures there is no wasted energy in a player's strokes. The solidness of the frame and smooth ball bearing movement guarantee consistency whether they're playing fast and loud or quiet and controlled.

Yamaha FP9 Double Chain Drive Single Pedal Heel Spikes

Anti-Skid Heel Spikes

Most bass drum pedals have anti-skid spikes towards the front of the footboard. This design can lead to the pedal fishtailing at the heel and eventually coming loose from the bass drum hoop. The FP9C's spikes are placed further back at the heel. This gives the spikes better leverage to dig in and get secured.

Yamaha FP9 Double Chain Drive Single Pedal Beater and Footboard

Weight-Adjustable Beater

Yamaha's beater weights give the idea of a weighted beater a new and stylish twist. Adding weights to your beater can help increase foot speed and strength, or just give you a better feel to your bass drum stroke. The FP9C includes steel and brass horseshoe weights. The weights slip on just below the beater very quickly, allowing you to change the feel on the fly. You can even put both on together.
