Gibraltar Prowler 5611 review

The Prowler bass drum pedal has had a revamp - it looks good and plays smoothly

The vented pedal board gives the pedal a no-nonsense look

MusicRadar Verdict

The revamp was worth it - a decent, entry-level pedal.


  • +

    Offset cam with high-quality bearings. A suitably powerful action.


  • -

    Nothing of note.

Gibraltar's revamped Prowler now comes with a vented pedal board that gives it a no-nonsense look. It boasts an offset cam and heavy-duty bearings, and the action is suitably powerful, though also supple.

Also with an easily accessible hoop clamp and funky dual-sided beater.
