Yamaha Drums recently announced an upgrade to its entire line of foot pedals. The new upgrades include a tongue attachment to the bass drum hoop now located on the side of all pedals, which adjusts with a drum key. An extremely sturdy footboard drum key bolt has been added to the pedals to provide a more secure system and eliminate breakage. The felt on the beater is thicker to simulate a normal felt beater, hitting the bass drum head at the proper angle providing a smooth feel and dramatically improved speed and dynamic control. The professional model upgrades include the FP-850 single pedal, double chain ($155), DFP-880 double pedal, double chain ($515), and the DFP-780 double pedal, single chain ($435). The DFP880L is available in a left version with a retail price of $515. The new DFP-880S ($340) and DFP-780S ($305) slave units are available for drummers wishing to upgrade from single pedal to a double pedal. The FP-700 single bass drum pedal retails for $100. A DFP-700S slave is available for the FP-700 at the retail price of $260. The DFP-700S double pedal retails for $345. Yamaha Corporation of America, P.O.
