The Phoenix DrumCo Ghost Port ℗
Philip Gelb is the inventor and the sole proprietor of the PDC Ghost Port ℗.
The PDC Ghost Port ℗ is sound enhancement device installed as standard factory equipment in all Phoenix DrumCo Drums.
The PDC Ghost Port eliminated turbulence so as to make the air and sound waves travel as smoothly as possible through the Port.
The PDC Ghost Port℗ tube extends the drum frequency by adding a lower end spectrum resonance the lower end of the sound. This alignment is known as ‘bass reflex’ similar to the sound effect found in premium stereo speakers.
The PDC Ghost Port ℗ allows the drum heads to breath and move with less restriction, but at the same time eliminated the vibration air pressure bounce-back from the resonant head transmitted back to the Batter head after the batter head is struck. The result is clean, crisp, smooth articulate drum sound where each note is fully expressed and appreciated for its acoustic value and quality.
The PDC Ghost Port ℗ virtually eliminates all unwanted ringing and overtones in the drums. There is no need for use the popular sound aids as mylar rings, gels, duct tape, muffling devices and such , when the ringing, clanking and the overtones are eliminated by the PDC Ghost Port ℗ during performance.
With the PDC Ghost Port installed, when a drummer needs more power and focus during play, the drums will respond like the accelerator of a fine sports car.
A microphone positioned just outside and in front of the PDC Ghost Port ℗ produces astonishing results that have sound engineers and recording artists buzzing.
The PDC Ghost Port ℗ allows the drum heads to breath and move with less restriction, while simultaneously eliminates the vibration air pressure bounce-back from the resonant head transmitted back to the Batter head after the batter head is struck. The result is clean, crisp, smooth articulate drum sound where each note is fully expressed and appreciated for its acoustic value and quality.
A byproduct of this mechanical and performance enhancement, the tactile feedback is a better physical sensation when striking the drum head with your sticks and bass drum beater head.
PDC OFF-SET Drum Pedals
PDC OFF-SET drum pedals are better than DW 9000, DW 5000,Tama Iron Cobra, Tama Speed Cobra,Pearl Eliminator, Pearl Demon Drive and Axis bass drum pedals because the OFF-SET Double Bass Drum Pedal is more effective than both traditional and the Sleishman Pedal of the competitors.
The OFF-SET double bass drum pedal was invented by a doctor who also is a drummer. The pedal design is ergonomic. This is the only double pedal that is bi-lateral* and bi-symmetrical**
* (Biology: pertaining to the right and left sides of the body)
**(Geometry: The two cut halves are mirror images of each other)
The revolutionary design of the pedal:
Places the drummer in the middle of the drum kit
Eliminates the need to twist at the spine while reaching towards the drums, presented by the traditional pedal set up configuration with a single or double pedal
Tremendously reduces the stress on lower back, hips, pelvis, knees and rotator cuffs
Has a large range of distance adjustment between pedals,
Drummer can position pedals closer to where the drummer is seated to maintain proper knee angle for power, speed and endurance
Pedal footboards can be angled inward or outward individually to match the way the drummers’ feet naturally pronate to relieve ankle, knee and hip stress and provide years of healthy drumming
With the OFF-SET pedal double jointed telescopic horizontal linkage bars the drummer can position the bass drum further forward allowing more options to place the rack toms in a lower height position. This configuration allows better leverage, posture and the increases the drummer’s ability to play off of the drum heads for better sound and technique.
Since The OFF-SET double pedal consists of 3 separate pieces and it is built with 4 tension springs instead of typical two springs per all competitor’s pedals. The four spring design allows for more real feel, better response and a quicker more adjustable pedal.
The OFF-SET bass drum pedal foot board is large and has an integral toe stop to accommodate all sized drummers.
Last but not least is perfect symmetry each pedal can be set to have the identical feel since they are exactly the same and will work for left-handed or right-handed drummers. No other traditional double bass drum pedal on the market can make this claim.
PDC OFF-SET also offers the only Universal Remote Single Pedal for left-handed or right-handed players who want to sit in the center of their drum kit. This model has 3 tension springs for virtually unlimited tension adjustment.
PDC Single “Big Boy” Pedal is like no other models. This pedal offers generously wide footboard and heavy duty construction. Two adjustable tension springs for powerful beater stokes as well as fast and accurate articulation.
