"My Yamaha pedals have effortless feel yet deliver a tremendous amount of power with every stroke. My feet would be wandering aimlessly without them."
Three Days Grace
"I use the DFP9500C double foot pedal with the beater turned around to the hard plastic for tons of point. They're very responsive with lots of momentum for a crushingly consistent kick drum."
New foot pedals are designed with a wider toe section (a) that offers subtler foot control compared to previous designs. The heel section (b) has been narrowed to maintain the perfect weight balance of prior models and improved performance.
Patternless Foot Board
A low resistance, snag-free surface allows finer foot positioning for more delicate footwork.
Unique Beater Action
Putting some distance between the beater shaft and the rocker shaft gives Yamaha pedals their unique feel.
The two-way beater offers two ways to play. Instead of simply attaching plastic to the felt, the plastic is wrapped around a large mass of felt delivering greater playability with the felt side.
Adding a sub-frame just below the rocker shaft, which is subject to the brunt of the load placed on the foot pedal, provides greater durability and stability that withstands intense pedal work.
Beater Shaft Rocker
A teardrop shaped shaft hole holds the shaft in place more securely while eliminating worries about slippage during performance.
4 Drive System Types Four Drive Types Offer Four Different Feels
Direct Drive (9500D)
A die-cast aluminum link provides a direct connection between the pedal and beater that transmits pedal control directly to the beater. This high performance drive delivers an overwhelming sense of speed.
Double Chain Drive (9500C, 8500C)
The double chain drive offers reliable and durable operation with uniform action. The FP9500C/8500C and DFP9500C/9500CL come with a belt letting you switch to a belt drive system if preferred.
Single Chain Drive (7210A)
The single chain drive provides uniform action with a natural feel.
Belt Drive (8500B)
The belt drive has supple touch and feel that isn't found in chain drive systems.
A wing bolt firmly tightens the clamp for secure attachment. It also allows the clamp to accommodate different hoop thicknesses.
Beater Angle Adjustment
Loosening the adjustment screw lets you freely adjust the beater angle along with the footboard angle. (All models)
Footboard Angle Adjustment
The pedal angle can be set freely to any angle without affecting beater angle. This lets you set the pedal angle you want when the pedal is not pressed. A tuning key is used to make the adjustment, which also lets you align pedal height with your sub, and hi-hat pedals. (FP/DFP9500 Series)
Spring Tension Adjustment Lock System
One hand spring tension adjustment is easy. A lock bolt secures the setting to prevent loosening during play. (Excluding FP7210A)
Smooth Moving Universal Joint
A universal joint on the rocker shaft provides angular flexibility for smoother movement. (Allmodels with double foot pedals).
Base Frame Tie Rods
Rubber coated tie rod ends prevent the footboard and base frame from becomingdisconnected. (FP8500B)
Compact and Convenient Semi-Hard Case
The 9500 Series pedals come with a specially designed semi hard case. This case provides protection from damage even when storing the pedals in the trunk case along with the stands that are missing their rubber feet. (FP9500 series, DFP9500 series)
