Gibraltar Drum Hardware has made subtle, but essential changes to its 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. The Strap Drive Cajon Pedal comes with the primary pedal and cable-mounted beater. The mechanism is equipped with a ball style cajon beater and cajon pedal C-clamp mount. 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. MSRP: $169.99.
