“The Malleus doesn’t come loaded with flashy gimmicks, but it’s the most robust looking pedal we have ever seen”. The Malleus (meaning Hammer), doesn’t come loaded with flashy gimmicks – in fact it is rather understated. It is, however, the most robust looking pedal we have ever seen. It has truly muscular proportions. The drive shaft wouldn’t look out of place on a small car and the solid aluminium bearing posts seem fit to pitch their own against an army of feet, let alone just two. The 10mm thick footplates (even with their cut-outs), appear tough enough to take the stomps from the heaviest pair of size 12s. Each Malleus pedal is made from quality materials including stainless steel, high-tensile steel and high-grade aluminium. Gareth Heeley shuns the use of die-cast and white-metal components, which he says would compromise the functionality and longevity of the pedal. Every component has been precision-machined using the latest CNC Lathes and Mills and all moving parts are fitted with bearings, making it both resilient and as smooth as possible. Highwood has included a selection of four Allen keys to set the pedal up and make any fine adjustments. These include beater positions, beater angle, lateral pedal positioning, beater/pedal distance from the drum and much, much more. One of the questions we posed to Gareth was the use of Allen-type screws, rather than the more convenient square-headed tuning bolts. He says “the pedals have’dog point’ screws made from high-tensile steel that, once in place,’bite’ without the need for locking washers etc”. Any adjustment is likely to be during the initial stages of ownership – once set up, it should never need changing. One of the most unique features (credited to HighWood’s machinist), is the bass drum clamp which pivots on a round peg like a tow-ball. The’C’ clamp attaches to the bass drum and the tow-ball peg (located on the actual pedal), slots into the clamp. With the Malleus’ modular design and construction, everything is bolted onto the footplate. This means it can be easily converted for a left-handed player or used as two entirely individual single pedals.
