Mean, Intrusive, powerful, efficient.

By the design of Gibraltar's flagship series bass pedals, when you take it out of the box, you just know this thing is going to do everything your foot wants it to. It's got a new stealth design on the pedal board and a solid aluminum stabilizing "rock" plate. The main concern with any pedal however, is feel.

The 9611 Direct-Drive system uses solid linkage to create a seamless, fast-paced feel drum pedal. The cam shape and linkage combine to deliver power and speed with seamless response.

Feel is where the genius of the Gibraltar design teams shines bright. These drive systems come with loads of adjustability so you can tune and fine tune to perfection.

Each adjustment can be made efficiently and on-the fly either by hand or with one of the 3 tools stored on board. Spring tension is easily adjusted from ridiculously high rebound to super floppy with the turn of a thumbscrew at the base of the spring. Beater travel distance can be tweaked with a drum key. The axle at the point under which this clamp grabs is also knurled for non-slip operation. This also provides for indexed tuning and is marked with three lines as reference points. Beater height is also set with a drum key and memorized with a memory lock. The lock makes quick work of setting up the pedal and ensures perfect positioning every time. The bass drum hoop clamp is tightened by a wing nut, conveniently positioned at the right side of the pedal board. Say goodbye to bloody knuckles from trying to reach under your pedal to attach it. And as if all of that weren't enough, the position of the beater can be moved laterally with a quick turn of an Allen head setscrew if you plan to use the pedal with percussion brackets.

The no-nonsense design of the Intruder pedal shows these things mean business. The base of the pedal is now solid aluminum with a strategically placed bead in the middle. This ensures maximum rigidity while keeping the overall weight to a minimum. Attached to this plate is also the on-board tool storage with the included drum key and two Allen wrenches. The pedal board is also aluminum, eliminating any possibility of flex. Choice areas machined out of the pedal board save weight and add to the stealth look. The uprights of the Intruder pedal, when looked at closely have a slight curve backward (away from the drum head) to put the axis of the beater in a more perfect location than a traditionally designed upright. These uprights are bearing loaded for maximum fluidity. Also loaded with a die-cast bearing is the upper attachment of the spring to the axle. Putting a bearing in the spring ring minimizes wear and eliminates friction, adding again to the fluid motion. Each of these features enables the drive system to put maximum power to the beater (or beaters).

These bass drum pedals come pre-assembled for plug-n-play operation. Simply drop in the beater and your ready to get kickin'. The beaters are 2-sided for two vastly different sounds. A curved felt side or a flat plastic side will suit any genre of music. Combine that with a pivoting head and you get a perfect strike regardless of the size of your bass drum. Each pedal also comes with its own gig bag for safe transportation.

The no-bull design of the Intruder drum pedal is all about power and efficiency. The Intruder brings to the table both and looks good doing it. They will definitely knock your socks off.

    Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Direct-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

    All my time as a drummer I have been using third class equipment. I've always seemed to make it work but wished I had professional level gear.This is it!!! I put it on my kit straight out of the box and it imediatly produced twice the thud and great responsiveness. Like all products from Gibraltar the Intruder is of the higest quality with strong building materials and great "bare bones", "work horse" reliability. I highlt recommend this pedal to any and everyone.

    Comments about Gibraltar Intruder Direct-Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

    This pedal has a very solid feel with a powerful stroke. There is several ways to adjust to any style of play. If your use to chain drive pedals it may take a little while to get use to. Overall workmanship is very good and comes with a nice padded bag.
