  • Patent number: 6369308
    Abstract: A percussion instrument pedal assembly includes a base, a shaft, a footplate, a bearing and a spring. The shaft at one end is pivotally mounted to the base and near the other end able to be connected to a percussive striker for striking a percussion instrument. The footplate has a toe end and an opposite heel end pivotally mounted on the base remote from the shaft. The bearing is connected to the footplate adjacent its toe end and has a rotating member able to engage the shaft adjacent the toe end of the footplate such that depression of the footplate will move the shaft in a first direction to cause the percussive striker to strike the percussion instrument when the percussive striker is connected to the shaft. The spring is biased to move the shaft in a second direction opposite the first direction upon release of the footplate.
