The Trick Pro1-V BigFoot Low Mass Direct Drive Bass Drum Pedal features innovative design elements, aerospace materials - titanium, billet aluminum, stainless and hardened steel - and is machined on the latest state-of-the-art CNC equipment. These technical innovations result in one thing: A pedal that plays like no other.
Compression Spring Technology
The Pro1-V utilizes an internally housed compression spring. Compression springs have the ability to cycle faster and utilize energy more efficiently. The benefit is a pedal that will react as fast as your foot. The compression spring works with the profiled cam follower to reduce the amount of spring tension build-up as the beater approaches the drum head; this gives you a more fluid stroke from beginning to end. Spring tension is adjustable while you're playing-simply turn the spring dial that's conveniently located within easy reach at the top of the main housing. Imagine no longer having to remove your pedal from the hoop to change tension settings.
Independent Split-Cam System
Because of the split-cam systems design, you can now change the attitude and attack of the pedal in seconds. Trick's fully independent split cam system allows the player to infinitely and independently adjust the beater from the drive cam angle with a 360-degree range of smooth yet solid settings. This system also allows for immediate conversion of the Pro1-V into a cocktail kit pedal or a triggering pedal.
Multi-Position Stroke Adjustment Cluster
This three position cluster is an integral part of the sophisticated geometry at work on the Pro1-V. It gives the player separate adjustments for the footboard angle, pedal action, and throw. This feature is patent pending.
Universally adjustable, the Pro1-V Bass Drum Beaters can be easily moved to any height/angle along the titanium shafts within seconds by using a standard size drum key. This allows the beater to strike your desired location on any sized bass drum without radically affecting the overall pedal feel. Hard/Soft surface change-out options are also included with beaters.
The BigFoot's 13" footboard is machined from solid billet aluminum that is rigorously fracture tested to 12,000 pounds per square inch. The underside of the Low Mass Footboards are then weight-relieved, miling out 7 ounces of Aluminum. This gives an overall lighter feel when compared to the standard Pro1-V.
The Pro1-V base plate is machined from solid billet aluminum. This provides the Pro1-V pedal with an ultra sturdy platform on which everything else is built. The base plate is tensile strength certified to withstand over 12,000 PSI.
Slide-Trac Rapid Release Hoop Clamp
This multi-purpose feature streamlines your set-up time. To connect the Pro1-V to your bass drum, simply hold down on the spring loaded lever and slide the pedal onto your hoop and release! No more fumbling to screw and unscrew wing nuts. When it's time to pack up, simply squeeze down on the lever to disengage the clamp, remove your Pro 1-V pedal, and hit the road! The Slide-Trac has three memory set-screws so you can pre set your hoop size and distance from the head for fast set up and tear down, time after time. It also allows the Pro1-V to fit snugly and perfectly on any brand of bass drum hoop regardless of the width or thickness.
