The Pro 1 Ð V is manufactured from aerospace materials (titanium, aluminum, stainless and hardened steel) and machined on the latest state of the art CNC equipment. When Trick began designing the Pro 1ÐV, they wanted to build a pedal unlike anything ever made, with never before seen features that are truly useful to todayÕs drummers. The Trick Pro 1 Ð V takes the worry out of whether or not youÕll make it through the show, and is so finely adjustable that it will satisfy every drummerÕs individual needs regardless of their playing level or style.
Footboard Ð The Pro 1ÐV footboard is machined from solid billet aluminum. The Pro 1 Ð V footboard is fracture tested to 12,000 pounds per square inch. The footboard is attached to the heel plate using a pressed-fit, hardened, solid steel pin. Attaching the two components this way has proven much more reliable than a hinge and uses fewer moving parts that could breakdown over time.
Base Plate Ð The Pro 1 Ð V base plate is machined from solid billet aluminum, this provides the Pro 1 Ð V with an ultra sturdy platform on which everything else is built. Say goodbye to thin stamped-metal base plates. Solid is better!
Compression Spring Ð The Pro 1 Ð V utilizes an internally housed compression spring. Compression springs are vastly superior to expansion springs used in many of todayÕs pedals, because compression springs have the ability to ÒcycleÓ faster and utilize energy more efficiently. With the Pro 1 Ð VÕs compression spring and profiled cam follower, another industry first, you will feel less spring tension build-up as the beater approaches the drum head.
This is one of the reasons why the Pro 1 Ð V feels smoother, faster and more responsive then any other pedal ever made. The Pro 1 Ð VÕs spring tension is adjustable while youÕre playing (if need be), simply turn the spring tension dial conveniently located on the main housing.
Independent Split-Cam System Ð TrickÕs fully independent split cam system letÕs the player infinitely and independently adjust the beater from the drive cam angle with a 360¡ range of smooth yet solid settings. This system also allows for immediate conversion of the Pro 1 Ð V into a cocktail kit pedal or a triggering pedal. Because of the split-cam systems design, the player can now change the attitude and attack of the pedal in seconds.
Multi-Position Stroke Adjustment Cluster Ð This three position cluster is an integral part of the sophisticated geometry at work on the Pro 1 Ð V. It gives the player separate adjustments to the footboard angel, as well as, the pedalÕs action, throw and overall feel.
