Until now drummers had to choose between a short board and a long board - now there's a third option - the Joggle Board™. Read more
This project's funding goal was not reached on April 17, 2014.
About this project
The unique shape of our Joggle Board™ provides a dedicated area to contact when using the heel-toe technique - giving your playing more control, power and consistency.
Our FB-007 model also exclusively features a control block to fine tune the contact area and a heel rest that can be engaged to make it play like a conventional pedal.
Our design is a result of several years of developing a drum pedal capable of fast double beats using only a single beater for the most consistent and purest sound.
UK and International patent applications protect our designs.
Since our exciting launch at the London Drum Show in 2012, we’ve attracted lots of interest from some of the most highly renowned drum companies in the world which led to our pedals appearing at Musikmesse and NAMM!
Within this period we have carefully considered a number of requests from leading drum manufacturers to license our design, however we think by putting it into production ourselves here in the UK we can retain the quality and identity that make these pedals so desirable.
We're using Kickstarter to generate the funds for a sizeable initial production run and for the tooling of the hybrid case.
Back this project and get your feet on these pedals for an introductory price exclusive to Kickstarter.
Look at These Features!
Machined from aircraft grade aluminium the FB-007 feature a catalogue of new features never seen on a drum pedal before:
What's in the Box?
Every pedal will be supplied with a quality two-faced beater, drum key and hex wrenches (Allen keys).
Every double pedal will be supplied with a quality 3rd party link bar.
The 2nd beater holder features triple bearings for stability, is made from aircraft grade aluminium and is cored out to further reduce weight.
Using the tools supplied and a 1/2" socket the same model can be built up for either right or left-handed use. We'll even supply a spare drive axle so if you wish you can convert the double pedal into two fully functional singles - handy if you think you might fancy trying out two bass drums, or simplifying your set up to use a single FB-007.

Hybrid Pedal Case / Practice Pad
We've been working with our friends at Hardcase on this - exclusive to this Kickstarter campaign, our case features a specially molded base which incorporates a Neoprene foam pad and an aluminium bracket. Attach your pedal to the outside and you have a bass drum!
Uses and Features:
- It's got a decent thud - busk with it!
- Stick a jacket inside to create a quieter practice pad.
- Throw in a microphone for amplification.
- Fit a trigger and turn it into an electronic drum.
- There's space inside for a practice pad and sticks too - for full backstage warm-ups.
- Elastic loops in lid secure beater and drum key.
- Dual straps.
- Fits any pedal, not just ours.
- And of course it keeps your pedal safe.
Pledges and Rewards
We welcome pledges from outside the UK and have already calculated the cost to mail the pedals to USA, Canada, Europe, etc. Simply add the appropriate postage and packing cost shown in the pledge description to your pledge. Kickstarter and your bank will automatically work out the appropriate currency exchange later.
Reduced Shipping Cost Option
Pedals and cases are bulky items which cost more to send. We can't reduce the size of the case however we have a few pledge options for "flat-pack" pedals. After testing we'll remove 6 screws from these pedals to allow them to fit into smaller boxes to reduce postage costs. We'll supply instructions showing you where to re-fit the screws. Simple!
Our Journey to Kickstarter
Our Manufacturing Process
Following Kickstarter we're committed to getting your rewards to you as soon as possible, and here's how we'll do it:
We'll keep you informed of our progress during production.
We will email you with a parcel tracking number.
Once you've received your pedal, send us a photo of you or your band and we'll put it up on our website.
Thanks a million for your support!
Risks and challenges
Following Kickstarter there should be no delay in putting the pedals into production since the design itself has already been thoroughly tested by some of the biggest names in the industry!
Using local UK suppliers means we’re close by to ensure the highest quality of component manufacture and I'll personally inspect every pedal's operation before they’re packaged and shipped to you.
The processes we'll be using to make the production pedals are the same we used for the prototypes so we don't expect any production issues, and with over 20 years of engineering design and manufacturing experience we're well positioned to handle any if they do.
Our biggest challenge will be coordinating the procurement of components and ensuring we have the buying power to get the best quality components for the best prices.
Hardcase International will be manufacturing the cases using the same quality manufacturing processes as their existing lines and tooling for the case has been quoted at only two weeks. We’ll provide you with regular updates on the pedal and case’s progress throughout manufacture.
