Yamaha FP8500C Kick Drum Pedal, Long Footboard
The Yamaha FP8500C Kick Drum Pedal features a new, innovative design. It incorporates a sub-frame below the rocker shaft which delivers greater stability.

The Yamaha FP8500C includes many other innovations. The beater cam features a teardrop shaped shaft hole. When the beater is tightened into the cam, it locks the beater into position so it cannot swivel during play. The beater angle and footplate angle are also freely adjustable to suit the speed and power of your playing.
The spring tension can be quickly adjusted with just one hand. The spring bolt locks itself to prevent unwanted movement after adjustment. The spring mechanism is fitted with bearings on both the rocker shaft and the spring hook. This provides ultra smooth movement and a natural action.
The pedal can be attached to the bass drum quickly and without the need for drum keys. A simple wingnut mechanism firmly attaches the clamp to the bass drum and can accommodate various widths of bass drum hoops.
