Installation of Axle Rod/Number One Piece/Auxiliary Head Beater Arm With Extension Piece 2017-05-02T13:29:43+00:00

Please refer to Setting and Adjustment Sheet for names of primary components.

The Setting and Adjustment Sheet can be found on the Support Page as the first entry at www.axispercussion.com.  These instructions refer to the locations of the Axle Rods installed in the Single Pedal at the Main Column, and the Double Pedal at the Main Columns of the Primary Pedal, Slave Pedal, and Axle Rod located at the Auxiliary Head Assembly.

Remove the spring assembly from the Axle Rod – 7, at the Spring Rocker – A Spring Assembly Detail.  Remove the (2) set screws on the bottom of the Number One – 8 or Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10.  If some scoring is noticed on the Axle Rod – 7 from the screws of the Spring Rocker – A Spring Assembly Detail, smooth the burrs with a metal file.  Smoothing the burrs will allow the Axle Rod – 7 to slide more easily.  Push the Axle Rod – 7 through the Main Column – 6, or Auxiliary Head Assembly – 10, and the Number One – 8, or Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10 from left to right using a tool (like a small diameter screw driver) long enough to reach entirely through the Main Column – 6 or Auxiliary Head Assembly – 10, and the Number One – 8, or the Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10, and of a smaller diameter than the ¼ inch hole of the Bearings (not shown) mounted on either side of the Main Column – 6 or the Auxiliary Head Assembly – 10.  To push the Axle Rod – 7 with the tool, secure the pedal so it will not move and use a mallet to tap the tool through the Main Column – 6 or Auxiliary Head Assembly – 10 and Number  One – 8, or Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10.  At this point the (2) Retaining Rings and Washer (not shown), should have also slid off the Axle Rod – 7.

To install the replacement Axle Rod – 7, please first note the flat spot ground into the Axle Rod – 7.  This flat spot must line up with the (2) set screws at the bottom of the Number One – 8, or the Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10.  If the (2) set screws at the bottom of the Number One – 8 or the Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10 are not screwed into the flat spot, and are resting on the round part of the Axle Rod – 7, the Axle Rod – 7 will rotate causing the pedal Footboard – 5 to drop, and the Universal Drive Shaft – D on a double pedal to slip.  Slide the replacement Axle Rod – 7 through the Main Column – 6, or Auxiliary Head Assembly – 10 and the Number One – 8 or Auxiliary Head Assembly Beater Arm – 10 from right to left.  Replace the Washer first and then the Retaining Ring on the left side of the installed Axle Rod – 7.  The (2) Retaining Rings can be pushed onto the Axle Rod – 7 using a ½ inch diameter tube.  The teeth of the Retaining Rings should point toward the left of the end of the Axle Rod – 7.  Firmly screw the (2) set screws of the Number One – 8 into the flat spot of the Axle Rod – 7.

Replace the Spring Assembly – A onto the Axle Rod – 7.

What’s the difference between A Series and X Series Pedals? 2016-10-30T16:53:26+00:00

The strap assembly is the focus of the differences between the A and X Series pedals. The A Series features the variable drive adjustment. The X Series features a fixed point strap, while providing a incredibly powerful signature.

Choose your favorite drive style:

A SERIES or X SERIES

All other options are available and can be added to both (with the exception of Classic Black).

A SERIES

VARIABLE DRIVE LEVER – featured on all AXIS A series.

VARIABLE DRIVE LEVER –
featured on all AXIS A series.

The patented variable drive lever allows the player to obtain the feel of any type of pedal with one simple adjustment. The new “Beater Forward” design substantially increases the power of the AXIS A without making it feel heavier, resulting in an increase of both speed and punch from both heel-up and heel-down players. The Variable Drive Lever changes the ratio of the footboard movement to the arc of the beater.

X SERIES

STRAP ASSEMBLY – featured on all AXIS X series.

STRAP ASSEMBLY –
featured on all AXIS X series.

The fixed-point strap assembly differentiates the X pedal from the A series. Perfect for the player who doesn’t want to be concerned with anything more than perfect performance.

Does Axis make a left-handed version? 2016-10-30T16:53:26+00:00

Yes. All A and X series double pedals have a left-handed version. What makes the left version different from the right is the axles on the slave pedal and the auxiliary beater are threaded in reverse of the right-hand pedal and the bridge is entirely different (much larger on the left version). The auxiliary beater arm is reversed on the left version. View.
