Beater Shaft Locker

The teardrop shaped shaft hole holds the shaft securely. The shaft's flat surface keeps the 2-way beater from swiveling while playing.

Beater Angle Adjustment

Loosening the adjustment screw lets you freely adjust the beater angle along with the footboard angle.

Spring Tension Adjustment with Self Lock

One hand spring tension adjustment is easy. A lock bolt secures the setting to prevent loosening during play.

Simple Hoop Clamp Mechanism

A wing bolt firmly tightens the clamp for secure attachment. It also allows the clamp to accommodate different hoop thicknesses.

Spring Roller with Built-in Bearings

Precision bearings deliver smooth, natural pedal action.

Base Frame Tie Rods

Rubber coated tie rod ends prevent the footboard and base frame from becoming disconnected.

Longer Footboard

The Footboard of FP8500 is longer than of FP9500.
