Gibraltar Cajon Pedal

Gibraltar Drum Hardware has made subtle but essential advances to its hugely popular Strap Drive Cajon Pedal. This pedal allows the drummer to use a cajon like a bass drum. Changes include fixed-position cable housings that keep the cable inline, along with fixed-adjust CAM drives Gibraltar's second-generation cajon pedal allows you to express yourself traditionally without overpowering other instruments in low volume playing situations.

Ken Fredenberg, Gibraltar's Director of Product, said, "Cajons are playing an increasingly important part in drummer's setups, and players are finding new and inventive ways to use them. We wanted to simplify playing the cajon for drum set players, and with this ready-to-go, out-of-the box second-generation pedal, we've done that."

The Strap Drive Cajon Pedal comes complete with the primary pedal and cable-mounted beater. The primary cable pedal allows for comfortable placement while keeping the cable out of the way. The mechanism is equipped with a ball style cajon beater and cajon pedal C-clamp mount. Spring adjustments on both components keep the action and cable tension secure. The fixed cable housings and cam arms keep the pedal's feel consistent while the opposite component allows the placement of the beater at different areas of the cajon for varying tones and to provide room for simultaneous playing with both the beater and the hand.

The Second Generation Gibraltar Strap Drive Cajon Pedal (MSRP: $169.99) is available at Authorized Gibraltar Retailers. For more information, visit GibraltarHardware.com.
