July 13, 2010 - Bensalem, PA- Tama has introduced the new Speed Cobra Pedal, designed specifically for drummers who crave maximum speed without sacrificing power.
The new Tama Speed Cobra Pedal is an innovative, lightning fast pedal with serious power for drummers who demand reliable, ultra-fast foot-pedal action. The Speed Cobra features newly developed proprietary mechanisms like the Fastball Bearing system, LiteSprocket beater cam, Super Spring tensioning springs, and Projector Beater beater head.
The Speed Cobra’s Fastball Bearing uses the latest technology in ultra-precise machining to facilitate the highest possible tolerances for absolute rotational accuracy and high durability, even when subjected to most punishing and repeated use. Seated in the Speed Cobra’s new negative pressure bearing housing, these elements combine to offer supreme speed and fluid action.
Weighing 40% less than the Iron Cobra’s sprocket, the Speed Cobra’s LiteSprocket’s lighter weight and true round shape, provide smooth quick action and a completely natural feel.
The new Super Spring tensioning spring has been engineered to require less exertion at the beginning of the foot’s downward pedal motion and accelerate quicker as the beater rebounds from the drum head. Adjusting the Cobra Coil underneath the footboard in conjunction with the Super Spring allows the player to fine-tune the return motion of the footboard to the player’s own specific feel.
Specially designed for the Speed Cobra, the Projector Beater’s convex shaped beater-head provides a more focused attack, better sound projection and fuller resonance.
