If you like to play fast kick hits, or need a very accurate kick pedal, a direct drive pedal is propably for you. There is no chain lag, the pedal does exactly what you need it to do, right away! The Dyna-Sync pedal has proven to be one of the best on the market, and given the Tama track record with their Iron Cobra pedals, no one is surprised.
Direct drive pedals provide a unique benefit - immediate energy conversion and accelerated beater movement. However, their product team realized the opportunity to design a direct drive pedal with perfect balance and alignment of three critical performance elements: Power–Speed–Feel.
Tama identified three critical design components: The direct drive linkage, the drive cam, and the drive/footboard connection angle. They worked closely with a stylistically diverse group of TAMA artists to further our understanding of what high-level players want and need from a direct drive pedal. The back-and-forth product team/artist dialog allowed them to master subtle mechanical relationships and angle alignments. This ultimately revealed a design method to overcome feel and power challenges they feel are inherent to some other direct drive pedals. They named this mechanical design the Dynamic Synchronization System.
TAMA's Dyna-Sync pedal defines a new power-speed-feel balance in a direct drive pedal and shatters direct drive pedal assumptions.
