The frame of the pedal is designed to be uncluttered and ergonomic whilst giving the right amount of set up options. These include a new spring tension adjuster with a clever self lock feature, a simple angle adjuster for the Beater, Footboard adjuster and a simple hoop clamp mechanism. All the adjustments can be made using a drum key.
The new 9500 series pedals are available as a Single Pedal or Double pedal and either a double chain version or a direct drive version for 2 distinctly different feels. This double chain version can also be modified into a belt drive which is also included. Both pedals feature a new beater design which offers a choice between felt and plastic surfaces whilst they also feature a new narrow under plate to allow for easier set up, especially when placing the slave unit on a double pedal next to hi hat stands.
