The Tama Speed Cobra bass pedal delivers not only pure raw aggression and power, but lightening fast speed!
Speed Cobra's overwhelmingly fast action is a result of several newly developed mechanisms such as the Fastball Bearing and LiteSprocket. Plus, the Projector Beater gives your bass drum sound increased projection and richer resonance. The recessed footboard angle, combined with the newly developed Super Spring, allows you to play incredible dynamics and fluid speed without experiencing muscle strain. Speed Cobra's smooth and stable action is based on the Iron Cobra's prominent heritage and allows you to play every possible delicate nuance to create your own personal playing style.
Speed Cobra's extreme velocity and serious power feels like nothing you've ever played before.
Tama Speed Cobra Bass Pedal Features
The Cobra Coil is a steel spring which assists in the return of the footboard to its original position, so the feel of Speed Cobra becomes even more unreal. Even better, the Cobra Coil can be adjusted to different positions, forward or backward, on the base plate.
Oiles Bearing Hinge
Offering even more durability than standard ball bearing, Oiles bearings also eliminate side-to-side motion and provide superior durability (which is why they're used in the aerospace industry). (Oiles bearings is a registered trademark of the Oiles Co., Ltd.)
Vari-Pitch Beater Holder
Vari-Pitch beater angle adjustments are completely independent of the footboard angle. The Speedo-Ring allows you to adjust the angle of the footboard link independently of the beater angle. And with the combination of the Speedo-Ring and the Vari-Pitch, you can achieve any kind of stroke and enjoy improved playability.
The Para-Clamp keeps your pedal flat on the floor no matter what your bass drum angle. The Para-Clamp is tightened from the side so you never have to insert your finger under the footboard. And since you can clamp your pedal to hoops up to 14mm (9/16 inches) in thickness, Iron Cobra will fit just about any bass drum in the market.
Tama eliminated another source of friction by replacing the traditional nylon rocker cam with the Speedo-Ring, a rocker cam with a high quality built-in ball bearing rocker. The Quick-Hook not only allows for easy set up and tear down but provides a compact pedal that you can place in the hard case without taking off the beater.
Twisting springs severely reduce pedal smoothness. Spring Tight, a clever half-moon shaped spring tension rod, keeps the spring from twisting, so there's never any loss of power transmission.
