Default Help identifying 60's (?) Yamaha bass drum pedal

Hello, I have not been able to find any information on this Yamaha bass drum pedal. It was listed on Reverb and came from Belgium. I can't imagine what the designers had in mind (just kidding there). The internal springs adjust from the top and it does have a noticeable squeak. I don't know why the posts have extra little ridges unless they are supposed to look like nodes on Bamboo. I did not see any markings other than the Yamaha on the foot board. The foot board is natural aluminum and the tower is painted gray. Thanks in advance, Joe

I will attach five more photos in a separate post.

(Happy New Year by the way)

Wonderful. thank you so much. The only information I found on old Yamaha pedals is one blurry catalog page. I also have a Yamaha/Nippon Gakki pedal.

Wow! Great information. I own that very same Yamaha 600 bass drum pedal.
It came with an early 70's Yamaha 5 piece Y badge D series kit. Sizes are 12, 13, 16 and 22 in Brown Willow with a 5x14 chrome steel snare. I purchased the kit years ago from the original owner.
The bass pedal was missing the round tension knobs to adjust the springs but was otherwise in good shape. I also have pieces of a Yamaha hi-hat stand that uses the exact same pedal plate as well as a snare and cymbal stand.

That's a pretty impressive MIJ 60's pedal! Then, again, it was Yamaha, so maybe not too surprised! The Yamaha-built Rogers R-360/380 were much better than the dozens of other drums made in Japan at the time.

The 600 series pedal really looks like their version of the Ludwig Speed King!

I believe the brown willow kit is the D-22 model.
