Over the years, one of the greatest challenges facing drum pedal manufacturers has been to provide a pedal that "does it all," or at the very least, focuses on the most critical features that drummers absolutely demand to enhance their performance...a difficult task, by any means. By today's standards, the two most important features drummers look for are speed and power. With most pedals, if you adjust the action to address speed, you can sometimes lose power. Conversely, if you focus primarily on the power of the pedal's stroke, you sometimes lose the desired speed. Now, the rules have changed.
TAMA's Speed Cobra not only delivers pure raw aggression and power, but lightening fast speed!
Based on the super accurate bearing used in PC hard drives, ABS systems in automobiles, and so on. This ultraprecise machined technology produces highly accurate revolving movement and high durability in even the toughest environment.
Tama adopted a true round-shaped "LiteSprocket" for a natural feel and smooth action. Compared with Iron Cobra's sprocket, this version decreases its weight by 40%. It revolves naturally and smoothly, providing a lighter feel.
Specially designed for Speed Cobra to give the bass drum more sound projection and rich resonance. The convex shaped head focuses the power generated by the beater stroke's action to the smaller surface area. This angle gives you a more focused attack and punchy sonic penetration. Rotate the beater head for larger surface contact and get a fatter sound with extremely powerful volume.
The newly developed Super Spring needs less momentum in the beginning of pedal action. When the beater rebounds from the bass drum head, you can easily feel a quicker response, and by adjusting the Cobra Coil underneath the footboard you can acquire a smoother feel.
