Gibraltar GCLMSP Catapult Linear Motion Single Bass Drum Pedal
The Catapult Linear Motion Single Bass Drum Pedal; designed to provide true response from the player' foot to the playing surface of the bass drum using natural angle motion thus avoiding muscle fatigue.
Conventional pedal designs utilize frames with cam drives attached to springs. When the player presses down on the pedal board the spring produces resistance, wich promotes speed and power. However, in extended playng situations this resistance can cause fatigue to extensor muscles of the lower leg and foot.
Gibraltar's Catapult Linear Motion pedal was designed to permit the extensor and flexor muscles to function naturally, allowing full rang of movement of the muscles and ankle. This result in a remarkable increase in muscle comfort, endurance, and precision in movement. The mechanical advantage of the design is in harmony with the biomechanics of how the foot wants to work.
