Tama's HP50 Classic Pedal is a drum pedal that takes its inspiration from vintage models with an eye to sophisticated simplicity. The streamlined footboard was carefully designed so that it is easy to use in any playing style. A newly developed height adjustment mechanism positions the beater to precisely strike the center of the head, for a range of bass drum sizes. And above all, its weight balance achieves a very natural feel and response, while still delivering power and nuance. This comfortable feeling allows the player to forget about the pedal itself and instead focus on playing music.

Features

Smooth Surface Footboard
The newly designed classic style footboard features lightweight construction and smooth surface, making it a great choice for any drumming style.

Center Strike Height Adjust
By simply loosening the square head bolt of the side pillar, you can change the height of the beater shaft. This makes it possible to have the beater strike the center of the bass drum without using a bass drum lifter or adjusting the length of the beater.

Easy Access Spring Adjustment
This unique Easy Adjust Spring Post allows you to adjust the spring tension while still sitting on the drum throne because of its top mounted construction. This means you can adjust the tension while actually checking the resulting feel simultaneously.

The Classic Beater
This traditional style round beater has a slightly tapered shape. It allows you to hit the bass drum evenly, and provides a warm sound with clear articulation.

Individual Adjustment of Beater & Footboard Angle
Using a drum key, you can adjust the beater angle as desired. Also, by changing the chain position on the sprocket, you can adjust the footboard angle independently of the beater angle.

Easy-Tight Hoop Clamp
We set the screw to tighten the hoop clamp on the outside of the pedal frame, making it quick and easy to set and remove.

Compact Folding Design
This pedal can be folded compactly to store it in a pedal bag. By tilting the spring post toward you, it becomes a compact right-angle triangle.

I replaced my DW9000 single with this pedal. With no adjustments I liked the feel of this better than my 9000 and it weighs about half as much. Probably won’t last as long as a 9000, which is built like a tank, but I only play on weekends and wanted to lighten my hardware. You can buy 2 of these for less than one 9000. I play either a 16” or a 20” bass drum so the adjustable beater height is a great feature for me.

I'll be honest, I needed a pedal to get through a gig and figured I could just return it if I didn't like it... that was 6 months ago. Amazing balance. Light-ish feel but with tons of punch. Lots of adjustment, more than other sub-200$ pedals (footboard angle independant from beater angle, yes!) Only issue is the footboard is on the short side and my long feet struggle to heel-toe. But I was used to a long board pedal.
