Conventional bass drum pedal designs utilize frames with cam drives attached to springs. While pressing down on the pedal board, these springs produce resistance while promoting speed and power. In extended playing situations, this resistance often causes fatigue to the muscles of the lower leg and foot, resulting in hindered playing and technique.
The Gibraltar Catapult Linear Motion pedal was designed to permit the extensor and flexor muscles to function naturally, allowing the ankle and corresponding muscles to utilize a full range of movement. The result - a remarkable increase in muscle comfort, endurance and precision. With its distinctive look, solid construction and competitive price, the Catapult pedal is in a class of its own.
