    Default Need Help with Yamaha FP8210 Pedal

    I just got the pedal along with a drumset I purchased.

    It is marked FP8210. Single chain



    The base plate has a keyhole cutout which allows for the unit to swivel when it is slid into it.

    The only problem I have is that this is the only part keeping the base plate attached to

    the rest of the unit and even though you slide it in the front of the unit the base plate is not attached

    to anything else and it slides around.



    Either this pedal is missing something or I am.

    I have attached pictures.



    The two screws towards the back that stick out through the 2 holes in the plate

    don't seem to have any function on this model.

    Nice pick-up! I have one on my rehearsal kit and love it.

    If you turn/ tighten down the two bolts (2-4 in the parts diagram in the link below) behind the pedal uprights, the points will go throught the plate and hold it on, and hold the pedal in place on carpet as well. You can also tighten the cap bolt (2-6) with an allen after sliding the plate on,

    That was really helpful...
    I don't know where you come up wtih that link..

    My next question is how do you swivel the base plate if I want to angle the footboard if everything is locked in as you described.
    I would think you would have to pull the spurs (2-4) up since they are locking the base plate with the uprights straight ahead with no angle possible.

    So? how do we create the offset?

    Thank you again.. I was looking for this on google and didn't use the correct search wording..

    I think I was incorrect in thinking that the footboard can be angled sideways like the Rogers swivomatic I own.
    Once you tighten bolt B in the bottom with the allen wrench, the footboard is straight in line with the bass drum.

    There is nothing in the manual that indicates that the sideways angle can be done..

    Correct?
