Gibraltar 9711GS Single Bass Drum Pedal with Carrying Case
The Gibraltar G-class pedal is a newer pedal that has quickly become a favorite of mine. It's a very sturdy pedal that can move quickly and features a smooth pedal board that is very responsive to any heel-toe gliding technique. My favorite feature is that all of the adjustment mechanisms are marked for consistency, making it easy to reproduce particular settings for different styles or feels. The spring is easy to adjust and is enclosed to keep everything secure. It also has the best mounting clamp of any pedal because it has a one step release, the pedal is easy to attach and detach from the hoop, and the footboard height/beater angle are easily adjusted. The beater has adjustable weights that change the feel and balance of the pedal in addition to a very solid foundation plate for grounding the pedal, thereby limiting excess movement. As nice extra, the adjustment tool is attached to the pedal itself so you won't lose it and there's also a a soft travel bag included to keep your new pedal safe during light travel.
