    Jojo Mayer, world-reknowned drummer for Nerve, has teamed up with Sonor to develop the Perfect Balance Pedal. Over the past several decades, bass pedals developed a heavier initial stroke to provide more sound as musical genres continued to become louder and more aggressive. This heaviness comes at a cost, however - the resulting feel is unbalanced, with a fast downward motion but a sluggish rebound. Jojo wanted a pedal with the feel of vintage, balanced pedals, but with the technology available in today's high-end pedals. Here's what he and Sonor came up with:
    • Low Mass Drive System - both the drive cam and the beater hub are a single unit for a reduced mass, while the round cam creates equal forward and backward acceleration for balance.
    • Elongated Footboard - the extra length provides additional leverage, as well as greater contact surface for heel-toe work. The footboard is purposefully smooth to reduce friction.
    • Self-Mounting Clamp - once the clamp is calibrated to your bass drum hoop by adjusting the screw, it can then be attached and removed from the bass drum in about one second; simply slide the folded pedal onto the hoop and lock it in the upright position to have it automatically mount itself, and release it with the push of a button.
    • Magnetic Spring Dock - when packing up your pedal, save wear and tear on the spring by securing it with a magnet.
    • Non-Proprietary Screws - this pedal uses metric screws that can easily be found at any hardware store.
    • Folding - with a push of the release button, this pedal can be folded nearly flat, saving you lots of room in your hardware bag.
    • Pedal Bag - speaking of bags, this pedal also comes with its own unique space-saving bag.

    • Pedal broke after only one year of light use. Found out many people have had same problem. Sonor refused to replace it even though they're aware of all the design flaws. Very disappointed.

    • When I first got this pedal a silver coloured grease appeared on the bottom of the post,I adjusted the throw of the beater as I like it more back to get louder volumes when needed after a few days of playing it the pedal broke down to beater was resting on the bass drum and I couldn't get it to work,so I took it back and it took 3 weeks to replace it,when I got the replacement I adjusted it again but found that if I pressed foot down hard the undrnieth of the footboard touched the base plate dosent help that the strap streaches it's rubber,so I thought I'd try a dw strap which is a bit shorter and non streachie now the foot plate is a bit higher just like my vintage speed king and the pedal is great haven't seen any grease on this one yet,I do wonder why the straps that come with the pedal are too long with no adjustment to make them shorter something over looked,I also think the beater stem is to short I use a 26" bass drum so I changed it to a ludwig beater which is longer,the only other thing I would change is the way it clamps on to the bass drum as I have to use different kits at festivals it would be much quicker to have a wing nut at the side instead of fiddling with the drum key under the footplate otherwise a great feeling pedal,I have tried most pedals in the past and always went back to my old sk,but now I thing I've finally found the perfect pedal feel wise
