Using input from artists, Yamaha's design team made this pedal even better. By tweaking a few features our pedals are smoother, stronger, and more versatile.
The FP-9500C is a double drive single pedal, and includes a woven nylon strap that can be installed using a drum key. The double chain drive is Yamaha's most popular model, and is ideal for heavy-footed players. The nylon strap is growing in popularity, it is quiet, and has a light, quick feel to it. The FP-9500C has adjustments for beater angle, footboard angle, and spring tension. The pedal frame has a stabilizer bar cast into it below the rocker shaft to eliminate flex. This keeps the bearings in alignment and gives the pedal a smooth feel. The hole in the beater hub is tear drop shaped so it securely holds the beater shaft and keeps the new two-sided beater from spinning. The new beater is felt on one side, and hard plastic on the other. The side-adjustable hoop clamp holds firmly to different thickness hoops, and tightens with a wing bolt. The FP-9500C ships in a hard sided soft case for transport.
