Yamaha Fp9c Dual Chain Drive Bass Drum Pedal (pre-loved)
YAMAHA FP9C DUAL CHAIN DRIVE BASS DRUM PEDAL (PRE-LOVED). Here we have a Pre-Loved FP9C Dual Chain Drive pedal from Yamaha. The Pedal is in excellent condition but please note that it has a Vic Firth beater and does not come with the case. Yamaha’s innovative designs in the hardware, rack and pedal department never disappoint, with the FP9 range they have revolutionised every aspect of their bass drum pedal design delivering an extremely versatile pedal that can be set up to meet the needs of the most demanding players. The FP9 chain drive version offered here has a heavier feel than the Direct Drive version of the pedal. The chain drive gains tension gradually throughout the stroke as the pedal is depressed. Switching the cam from position C1 to C3 reduces the initial tension. This durable, reliable double chain drive boasts fluid movement. The cam at the bottom of the chain can be slid into three positions, allowing the drummer to fine tune the pedal’s action to match their preferred performance. It can also be used as a belt drive by replacing with the belt – one optional belt is included with the single pedal. For the FP9 series Yamaha developed the Axle Stabilizing Bearing Chamber. The frame and bearing cover (blue parts) are independently smoothed and precisely fabricated before assembly, allowing them to to be aligned with the central axis of the shaft and ball bearings to unleash a smooth rotation. Connecting the heal plate and the footboard is the Low Profile Stabilizing Hinge. The hinge base and cover (blue parts) are independently smoothed and precisely fabricated before assembly, allowing smooth foot board performance. Another great bit of fresh thinking from Yamaha comes with the new Easy Access Auto Locking Spring Adjustment. Moving the spring adjustment knob upward greatly simplifies the traditionally troublesome tension adjustment process. The knob is locked at a 90-degree angle that prevents it from coming loose on its own. This system is more accessible and far easier to adjust when the pedal is attached to the bass drum. Another welcome feature on the FP9 is the ability to be able to adjust the footboard height independently of the bass drum beater position. Often with other designs a higher pedal angle will result in a greater distance for the beater to travel and often the feel is compromised. That is not a worry with the FP9, The beater angle and footboard angle can be independently and freely adjusted. The inclusion of an angle checker allows drummers to easily recreate their preferred settings. The FP9 also offers a ball bearing drive connector. The tip of the footboard comes equipped with ball bearings, allowing even smoother performance and feel between the pedal board and the drive system. Yamaha have also developed Anti-Skid Heel Spikes for the FP9. As the title would suggest these spikes are positioned at the heel plate end of the pedal. Many drummers will know the annoying moment live when the bass drum pedal will start to reposition slightly off centre to the left or the right. The Anti Skid Heel spikes completely prevent this from happening and keep the pedal exactly in the position you want with no play to the left or right.
