Smooth, Stable Direct-drive Double Pedal
With its swayless stability and sport-bike-inspired visuals, the Yamaha FP9 double bass pedal delivers style and performance that can please the industry's most discriminating players. Ball bearings throughout the pedal, as well as front and rear spikes and a frame-inside-a-frame design, prevent rocking, sliding, and pedal play of any kind. This results in a smooth, nearly 1:1 transfer of energy, even at high intensities. Yamaha's 3-way Quick-Adjusting Links, paired with independently adjustable footboards and beaters, make the FP9 a pedal tweaker's delight. Features here found especially helpful are the FP9's self-locking ergonomic spring tension knobs, which make it fast and easy to dial in each side from playing position. You also get a weighted beater system with removable weights to further dial in speed, throw, and power. A carry case is also included.
No play in this pedal
Top to bottom, heel to toe, every part of the Yamaha FP9 has been engineered for maximum stability. Ball bearings in the pedal hinges and toe plates, front and rear adjustable spikes, and flex-fighting under-axle subframes neutralize any side-to-side movement. What's really unique are the FP9's Axle-Stabilizing Bearing Chambers (patent pending), which are precisely fabricated to yield a velvet-smooth response between axles, links, and beaters.
Bearing-loaded pedal linkage
Unifying response between master and slave sides of the Yamaha FP9 double pedal is a streamlined, lightweight pedal linkage that's loaded — both sides — with ball bearings to eliminate rotational play. The joint itself feels extremely sleek and rugged in the hand; a testament to the fact that Yamaha has left no feature unattended to in the FP9 pedal series.
Independent pedal heights and beater angles
Footboard and beater travel can be independently customized in each side of the FP9. Visual markings on the frame permit repeat pedal height settings from session to session.
Key-adjustable link response
Three Quick-Adjusting Link settings on each side of the FP9 allow players to further fine-tune response. From perfectly linear in center position to added power or acceleration on either side of the stroke, the FP9's Quick-Adjusting Link serves as the motor for your preferred style of playing.
Self-locking spring tensioners
The FP9's ergonomic spring tensioners control pedal resistance from playing position. Self-locking knobs, which click to lock in both directions, eliminate the lock washers and locking nuts of traditional designs. What they create are the potential for song-to-song tension adjustments, for each side, on the fly.
Weighted beater system
Included aluminum (3g) and brass (9g) horseshoe weights clip directly onto the FP9's beaters for added weight and heft. Both sizes can have a serious effect on tone and response. Looking for maximum power and authority? Try using both at once.
