Sonor Jojo Mayer 'Perfect Balance' Single Kick Pedal

 

"Over the past two decades, I acquired and played pretty much every pedal on the market. Unfortunately, I could never find a pedal that really worked for me. I found that compared to some legendary vintage pedals from the fifties, most contemporary pedals have plenty of speed and throw on the forward motion, but sluggish response on the beater return.

Once the original vintage designs were altered to meet the demand for more striking power, the perfectly balanced action got lost and became top heavy. Like an unbalanced stick, this becomes a considerable disadvantage to execute many of my pedal techniques which allow me to generate effortless speed without sacrificing power. Many pedals try to compensate for this problem with elaborate adjustability but only with limited success.

So I started my quest to put together a perfectly balanced pedal that matches the requirements of today's music. For about six years I experimented with different parts, drive systems and footboards until I had the blueprint for the pedal that you have in front of you. Other than the action,

easy portability and quick set up was a main concern to me. At that point SONOR joined the project and contributed their German precision engineering and an innovative solution for the folding mechanism and self-mounting hoop clamp that works at the push of a button.

The Perfect Balance Pedal is a carefully calibrated system that optimizes the linear translation of your foot movements and makes many adjustments expendable. It was designed with a principle in mind that reflects ultimate sophistication to me:

Simplicity.

Essentially, it could be described as the soul and feel of a vintage pedal reincarnated in the technology of a 21st century body."

-Jojo Mayer


 

FOLDING MECHANISM

Folds the pedal into compact size for easy transportation with the push of a button. For extended lifespan, the spring can be dislocated and secured with a magnet when folded.

Folding


Low Mass Drive System

The drive cam and beater hub are streamlined into a single unit for low mass and carefully calibrated for perfectly balanced strokes. Round cam design creates linear acceleration which is a major advantage for many hybrid techniques.       

Elongated Board

Elongated and smooth footboard adds more leverage to the stroke and allows extended range of movement for heel toe and sliding techniques.       

Ballistic Fiber Strap

Ballistic fiber strap minimizes inertia of the drive system and offers a quicker and smoother response than chain or solid drives. For those who prefer, the pedal can easily be retrofitted with a double chain.       

Self Mounting Clamp

Quick mounts the pedal with a single motion. Clamp adjusts to all hoop thicknesses.       

Magnetic Spring Dock

Magnetic spring dock secures spring during transportation which dramatically extends the life of the spring.       

Non-Proprietary Screws

Standard Allen screws are metric items that can be obtained at every good hardware store. No need to special order replacement screws any longer.       

Pedal Bag (Included)

Compact Tarpaulin style pedal bag makes bulky carrying cases obsolete. Includes shoulder strap.

Manufacture
Sonor

Sonor is a German drum kit and percussion manufacturer. In the 1980s, Sonor's tagline was "The Rolls of drums". The drums were made very thick (13 mm) and heavy shells that were beech wood, with an innermost and outermost ply of furniture-grade veneers, such as rosewood and bubinga. Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden was one of the most prominent Sonor artists of the 1980s, along with Steve Smith of Journey, Phil Rudd of AC/DC, Thomas Haake of Meshuggah and jazz legend Jack DeJohnette. Sonor invented the modern screw thread drum-construction and the metal snare drum in the early 20th century. William F. Ludwig got this idea in his early years back in Germany from Sonor and began to use it later in Chicago. As the 1980s progressed, the market began to stray away from thick heavy shells and Sonor started slimming down its shells with a line called "Sonorlite" and "Hilite", a step away from the idea a drum shell should resonate like a violin or guitar body. The thinner the shell, the lower the fundamental tone.
