The Symphonic GEN2 Series pedal mechanism is based upon the European style toe-release block system, also known as a clutch and post system. Unlike the Professional GEN2 Series balanced action system, this type of block pedal system allows the fundamental pitch of the timpani head to be easily altered without effecting pedal performance.

Three wheels, two at the rear and one under the pedal mechanism, have been custom designed with a braking mechanism that prevents them from both turning and rotating.
