He uses a Sonor phonic Z53 70, (which I believe is discontinued) with a nylon strap and low spring tension.
According to his site thgough, he is currently developing and designing a prototype pedal.

I watched his DVD before I deployed. I mistakenly assumed that he played a new Sonor giant step.

It's very cool that he plays like he does and doesn't need the latest and greatest thing to do it. He has incredibly articulate feet, a real blast to watch.

that pedal fell apart years ago, apparently.
he is indeed designing a pedal (although not with sonor!)
and for the last few years he's been using a pedal that he made from parts of many, many different pedals

If I recall correctly, he played with a Pearl Eliminator (white cam) at the Modern Drummer festival.

I think he's working on coming out with a signature pedal. Not sure if he's done it or not, I don't know.

I spent about twenty minutes discussing gear with JoJo after a clinic in Richmond Hill Ontario a few months ago and we talked about bass drum pedals.He admitted he is working on a new pedal with an undisclosed manufacturer. He mentioned his disdain for chain drive pedals and also mentioned that with his technique that he almost doesn't need a spring on his bass drum pedal. He also mentioned he is coming out with a foot technique DVD in the same format as his previous. Hand technique DVD.

Yes, it does, but Jojo is playing sonor drums, so maybe it is not the one he designed

There are two reasons I would never use one of these pedals.
1.As stated before, using two "Slave" pedals does not sound very desirable.
2. I use off set rack toms on a tom stand, if bass drum was directly in front of me, I wouldn't be able to set up my toms correctly, the whole structure of my kit would sloppy.
