Product Spotlight: Tama’s Dyna-Sync Bass Drum Pedals

Welcome back to the Chops Blog! This week, we’re excited to talk about Tama’s brand new Dyna-Sync bass drum pedals. These pedals were unveiled at Winter NAMM this past January, and there was a lot of buzz surrounding them. I can tell you after putting my own foot on one the buzz was deserved!

The pedal action is unbelievably smooth. You would expect that from a pedal designed like this one, but even I was surprised by how little effort was used to play it. I know a lot of drummers look at direct drive-type pedals as great for speed, but not much else. This pedal provides both smooth speed and power, so you get the best of both worlds here.

The adjustments and features included on the single and double pedals are too numerous to list in the blog, so I would suggest going here to check it out:

(single) https://www.tama.com/usa/products/detail/hpds1.html

(double) https://www.tama.com/usa/products/detail/hpds1tw.html

The price tags are a little steep ($349.99 for the single and $699.99 for the double), but this could be the last pedal purchase you ever have to make, so that makes those prices a little easier to swallow. We have both in stock, so be sure to stop by soon and see what all the hype is about!

Marching Snare Head Feature: Remo Suede Max

We get many calls this time of year regarding snare head choices. There are many tried and true products out there, but there is one newer option that is quickly becoming the choice of marching groups everywhere: the Remo Suede Max batter head.

If you love the sound of their now-famous Black Max, but desire a softer feel, then the Suede Max is probably the head you’re looking for. Along with the softer feel, you still get the durability that you’ve come to expect with the Black Max. This drum head is available in 13” and 14”.

Give us a call if you’re ready to try these out this marching band season. We have several in stock with more on the way! For more information on this drum head, visit this link: https://remo.com/products/product/suede-max/
