Yamaha DFP9C Chain Drive Double Pedal
The Yamaha DFP9C Chain Drive Double Pedal rewrites the book on current bass drum pedal performance standards and is setting a very high bar indeed. This double-pedal is jam-packed with fantastic innovative features that enable it to outperform its rivals with ease. And thanks to its futuristic, sophisticated looks, solid-as-a-rock stability and ultra-smooth action, this double-pedal has been impressing top-level professional drummers worldwide.
Taking their inspiration from the sleek aesthetics of Yamaha’s brilliant R1 Motorbike, Yamaha’s Drum R&D dept. have managed to create a revolutionary design that optimises performance and does away with unnecessary features and wasted space. This results in an ultra-compact and super-efficient double-pedal that is brilliantly streamlined and optimised - there's nothing superfluous or wasted here. This is a state of the art, top-performance double-pedal with poise, grace and agility.
The DFP9 model comes in two styles - direct drive or double chain drive. This double chain drive version of the pedal offers a more traditional, weighty feel underfoot that provides a resistant response when you dig in, as opposed to the weightless feel of a direct-drive system. It performs just as well as the direct drive, but Yamaha know that a lot of players still like to feel that tension in a pedals feedback, so this chain-drive model gives the player the option to best suit their preference.
The pedals of the Yamaha DFP9C are connected by a streamlined, lightweight linkage that's loaded at both joints with ball-bearings that eliminate rotational play. By eliminating a pedals unnecessary movement, the generated energy is exclusively focused from board to cam and results in a beater that responds without delay. No energy should be lost to wiggle, shift, slide or vibration. The DFP9C pedals feature spikes at both the front and rear of their bases which significantly reduce shift and slide. Further supported by its anti-rocking frame within a frame design, this is a seriously stable pedal indeed.
This pedal offers a plethora of adjustable features that provide a variety of performance options. These options allow for rapid, precise changes that let you hone the pedal to your exact preference. Yamaha's 3-way Quick-Adjusting Link changes the beaters pivot points so you can alter your attack, and the independently adjustable longboards and beaters offer countless combinations of force to velocity ratio. Self-locking ergonomic spring tension knobs allow you to quickly and easily adjust spring tension from your playing position, and a weighted beater system with removable weights allows you to dial in the speed and power you prefer.
The Yamaha DFP9C Chain Drive Double Pedal is a brilliant piece of hardware that feels like an extension of your foot - as though the drum was responding directly to your every subtle movement. It is no small wonder that this pedal is so highly acclaimed.
