Trust and evolution generated by accumulation for 20 years TAMA IRON COBRA
A variety of adjustment functions that correspond to any play style, smooth stepping feeling easy to control. And trust that you can concentrate on playing more securely than anything else. It can be realized only for IRON COBRA, which has been loved for over 20 years, and has been evolving day by day!
IRON COBRA 900 - Main Features
● Reducing the weight of the cam itself by about 40% compared with the conventional model achieves a smoother and lighter foot stepping feel.
● Adopted Swivel Spring Tight, a mechanism that maximizes spring effect. By minimizing power loss, control of the pedal became easier.
- Equipped with felt beater, Power-Strike Cobra Beater. Easy to control by sticking to the center of gravity balance, you can obtain a bass drum sound with a core.
Swivel Spring Tight Swivel · Spring · Tight
A new mechanism devised to maximize the effect of spring. Since the axis fixing the lower end of the spring rotates (swivels) according to the movement of the pedal, even if it moves intensely, the spring always stretches and shrinks in the vertical direction without being distorted. This converts the elastic energy stored in the spring into energy that moves the pedal without loss. Furthermore, by reducing the friction applied to the connecting part with the spring, I realized the ideal pedal work that the stepping is light and the return is fast.
Hinge Guard Block Hinge · Guard · Block
The method of fixing the bearings at both ends of the hinge shaft is changed to a method of holding the bearings such that the bearings are sandwiched between the upper and lower sides than the method of penetrating from the side of the conventional footboard. Distributing the force applied to the bearing when stepping on the pedal reduces the load on the bearing shaft itself. It has become possible to perform rotation with higher precision than the conventional model, realizing unprecedented smooth operability.
Oiles Bearing Hinge OILES · BEARING · HINGE
In the hinge which becomes the fulcrum of the foot board, we adopted the "Oiles" bearing which coated the teflon resin to the mesh made of bell brass. Shut out outrageous blur of the unpleasant footboard and provide smooth pedal work.
LiteSprocket light sprocket
The cam (sprocket) that has a big influence on the action of the pedal adopts a new specification that is about 40% lighter than before. By reducing the force required for the rotational motion of the cam, we realized a lighter footstep.
Rolling Glide: It features a natural action adopting an orthodox circular wheel. It is an almighty model with responsive control.
Minimizing Power Loss Minimizing Power Ross
With the IRON COBRA pedal, in order to realize smooth and stable movement, bearings are mounted on each drive part. On both ends of the shaft part, it is equipped with super precision bearings adopted in PC hard disk drive and automobile ABS equipment, providing smooth and stable action. High precision ball and bearings installed at the connecting portion between the spring and the shaft convert the force stepping on the foot board to the rotational energy of the cam without waste and realize a smooth pedal work. In addition, "Oiles" bearings adopted in the hinge part will shut out the uncomfortable sideboard of the footboard.
CobraCoil (US.PAT.NO.7408104) Cobra coil
TAMA original mechanism, Cobra Coil (Cobra coil) realizes a light stepping feel by assisting "return" after stepping foot board. This mechanism set between the foot board and the under plate is structured to touch the back side of the foot board just before the beater hits the bass drum head. This will support "return" without affecting the stepping, light footwork becomes possible.
Speedo-Ring & Quick-Hook Speed Ring & Quick Hook
High-precision ball bearings fitted to the connecting part between the spring and the shaft. With this bearing, the elastic energy generated by the spring's stepping force on the footboard is converted to the rotational energy of the cam without waste. Furthermore, in order to follow precisely the movement of the spring, it also achieves a smoothness in which the movement of the foot and the motion of the foot board are interlocked. Also, Quick-Hook connecting the bearing and the spring can be easily removed, so you can store the pedals compactly in the case without pulling out the beater.
SuperStabilizerDesign Super Stabilizer Design
Supporting the shaft driving the cam and beater, so to speak the frame width of about 15 mm to say so to speak as a skeleton of the pedal, so that the width of the under plate that supports the entire pedal is expanded by about 12 mm from the conventional model. By greatly improving the stability, even a violent pedal work does not break, you can get a uniform action.
Para-Clamp II Pro (US. PAT.NO. 6011208) Para clamp II pro
TAMA original clamp is upgraded version to reliably hold bass drum hoops of various thickness. Fixing the bass drum hoop By attaching the rubber to the tip part, it increases the grip strength and exerts strong fixing force while suppressing damage to the hoop. Also, because it adopts a structure in which the tip part moves in three dimensions, even if the front side of the bass drum floats extremely, the tip will fit according to that angle and stabilize the pedal. Besides, since the T bolt to be tightened when fixing is a structure that can be operated from the side of the foot board, it is possible to remove the pedal even while sitting in Sloan.
Power-Strike Cobra Beater Power Strike Cobra Beater
A newly designed cobra beater whose felt hit to the head has a smaller area and increased thickness than before. I increased the bell sound of the bass drum, gained a sound with a thick core, and emphasized the attack by flattening the felt face. In addition, the beater head inherits the angle adjustment function while improving the control performance by reviewing the balance between the distance from the felt tip to the end part and the shaft position. Succeeded to realize the core sound with the sound not blurred even with a small volume.
