Jojo: "To get the right balance between the moving parts took a long time as it was basically a process of trial and error. I initially started out to cannibalize pedals and combined parts that I liked from different brands into my own Frankenstein pedals. Eventually, I moved onto customizing parts like drive cams and footboards myself. Eventually, I had the specs for the blueprint of the perfect balance pedal and showed it to Sonor. This was the start of our collaboration and the engineers at Sonor started to look for solutions that allowed the pedal to be folded up for transport and mount itself on the bass drum automatically. I guess I’m a hard guy to please, so I have to give the folks at Sonor props for not loosing their minds over my neurotic compulsive escapades concerning my vision."
