The Gibraltar 5711S could be the answer you've been waiting for. This streamlined single is clean, simple, and responsive — really, it's everything you need in a pedal without the extra weight and features. Its smooth chain-drive cam delivers a predictably whiplike response, with speed in the onset and added power toward the end of the stroke. A single spring tensioner quickly dials in your preferred response. Tighten down the offset hoop clamp screw (a real knuckle-saver onsite), set your beater height, and you're ready-steady. Stabilizing features you might not expect from a pedal in this class include a textured black cast metal frame and a smooth steel base plate. Together, these help eliminate side-to-side play and loss of transmission from your foot to the head.
The Gibraltar 5711S includes a reversible two-way beater with soft felt and hard plastic strikers to give you two distinct sounds to cover the gamut of styles.
