Manufacturer's Description from Axis Percussion

This Derek Roddy A21 Signature Edition Kick Pedal with Electronic Kit has an extra long footboard for increased power and control. It takes the A21 beater bracket and incorporates ideas from Derek and his web forum that make the pedals more user friendly, such as drum key adjustments for the beater angle and the Variable Drive Lever. The choice to locate posts on the base plate prevent the need to change the settings for the drum beater and Electronic Kit detonator angles. The base plates are smooth with the distinctive design applied by laser which provides a tactile surface. Derek Roddy approvingly road tested and evaluated the new bass drum pedal, and now Axis is proud to offer it as his signature pedal.

Derek Roddy is acclaimed as an accomplished clinician and educator, and is expert in any drumming style including Extreme and Modern Metal, Jazz, Blues and Rock.

The A21 kick drum pedals have all the performance features of the Axis pedals with increased magnitude. The A21 was designed to accelerate the beater into the bass drum with greater force and velocity, and to incorporate the Variable Drive Lever for greater adjustability.

The A21° power forward beater angle has been integrated into the beater bracket to maximize the beater impact. The Variable Drive Lever settings farther forward produce a deeper footboard travel (more power), while settings aft ward result in increased speed.

Axis Electronic Kit
The EKIT is truly an Axis Percussion innovation. Now you can trigger your kick drum without the use of unreliable external acoustic kick drum triggers. Totally redesigned, this unique mechanical trigger is mounted onto this kick drum pedal and lets you choose the exact moment and strength of your acoustic triggering. No more cross talk, double triggering, duct tape, or trigger fatigue.

About Manufacturer

For almost three decades, Axis Percussion have been manufacturing high-quality drum hardware made from aircraft-grade aluminum and steel. Their goal is to provide drummers with efficient and durable gear that will last them for years. Axis started as Engineered Percussion, the brainchild of drummer and machinist Darrell Johnston. After a few failed experiments, Darrell produced the first versions of the now-iconic Axis pedals around 1990. After rave reviews in Modern Drummer Magazine and at the 1991 NAMM show, Axis began to garner a reputation for their innovative and durable designs. Today, with an artist roster including names like Derek Roddy, George Kollias, and Alfred Berengena, Axis pedals are revered by drummers the world over who seek speed, precision, and dependability from their gear. All parts are machined at Axis’ facility in Carson, California, meaning that Axis products truly are American-made by a small team of dedicated machinists and engineers.
