I have used the Tama Camco chain drive bass drum pedal exclusively for over 30 years. I still have the four original pedals I bought from West Coast Drum around 1980. The pedals have been used for thousands of gigs, rehearsals, student lessons, practice and recordings without one parts failure ever! The feel is great, the design and materials are perfect and kick every other pedal’s ass! Thank you to the fine engineers at Tama.
