Arch/Leverage Bar on the "Sweet Spot" of the pedal, enhancing the feel of the pedal and providing more control. The FunkBump is located near the upper end of the footboard, where the ball of your foot rests on the pedal. The pad is the same as the FunkBump MultiGridlock, but it is a smooth surface.

Grip Peddler Hi-Hat and Bass Drum pedal pads. The MultiGridlock traction is a durable polurethane pad with multiple squares stacked on top of each other. The MultiGridlock provides the most traction and also offers the most support. The stacked squares provide extra padding and support when laying into the pedal. The squares help offset the shock and the vibration that is created when the pedal beater comes in contact with the bass drum head. Although the MuliGridlock provides the most traction, the grid is not restricting. Drummers can still slide their foot on the pedal. The drummer’s foot pressure determines the amount of Grip that the pad provides. If you are light on your foot and like to slide, the Grip Peddler MultiGridlock pads will allow you to move freely.
Grip Peddler SoleSmooth Hi-Hat and Bass Drum pedal pads provide drummers with the same cushion and support as the MultiGridlock, however, they are made without the squares for the drummers that like to slide their feet.
