With 'The Power of Control,' Dixon introduces a new bass drum pedal with their high-designed Precision Coil. The design of the Precision Coil is definitely unique, and especially engineered to deliver ultimate responsiveness and ergonomic action. As the company states: "Precision Coil is a mechanical solution to a mechanical problem".
Dixon believes the rocking spring mechanism on traditional drum pedal lends itself to interference and inefficiency with every foot stroke, compromising smoothness and playability. Therefore, drummers devote considerable time and energy to developing technical solutions that compensate for what is essentially a mechanical problem. The Precision Coil is a pedal with a sophisticated and streamlined feel that responds to every move of control.
SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company in Switzerland has tested the pedal. The videos below do state that the pedal's motion is proved to be closer to linear motion control as compared with a traditional pedal.
