Product Description
An industry standard gets even better. We've reengineered the pedal that established our reputation for innovation and quality. Because innovation is part of our DNA we thought it was time for some major improvements. Most notably, the toe clamp. The 5000 needed more gripping strength, providing a stronger connection between the drummer and kick drum. So, we developed the Tri-Pivot Toe Clamp (U.S. Patent No. 8330032). Three independent 360 degree, rotating rubber pads firmly pinch almost any diameter and thickness bass drum counter hoop from the top and the bottom, with zero slippage. Add to that a new textured rubber grip pad on the base plate and we think you'll agree that there’s never been a better system for attaching a pedal to a bass drum. Last, but certainly not least, we wanted to improve on the smoothness and feel of the 5000, if that was even possible. To accomplish this, we added a Dual Bearing Spring Rocker, making the 5000 quicker and more responsive. The Accelerator (AD4) drive system offers an eccentric motion that creates an indirect relationship between the sprocket and the footboard, increasing the velocity of the pedal by shortening the length of the stroke. It is recommended for situations that require increased speed and sensitivity.

    By TIMMY!!
    OMG!!!! I had the previous version of this pedal before the redesign of 2013. Being a light hitter, I somehow still managed to break my previous version of this normally unbreakable tank...the bearings need replaced as well as a new cam, but I also needed an excuse to buy and try this one out anyway (will refurb my old pedal and keep it for a backup).

    I cannot believe how much difference the Dual-Bearing Spring Rocker system adds to what I thought was already the near perfect pedal. This simple design change has to be played/felt to be believed. Anything your heart thinks your foot should add/play, this unique design makes it just happen, and effortlessly. I thought it was going to be a useless feature, kind of like the DW 9000's bearings at way too many points (which made it unplayable for me). This altered bearing design taken from the 9000 works magic on the 5000.

    The Tri-Pivot Toe Clamp is also exactly what the Dr ordered with the only major glaring structural design flaw of the predecessor. It does level itself to the floor and grabs that bass drum like super glue. Where I have my drums the floor is uneven (1 piece of plywood is 1/4" lower than another in the shield where I play at church), and was always a problem with my old 5000. Not with this one, the pedal stays perfectly flat and centered. By the way, the drums are not the church's, they let me keep my babies there and play for the church, but I buy all my own gear.

    Finally, if you have an older version of this pedal, do yourself, your drums, your art and your passion a favor, get this pedal. Being a poor guy, this is a true statement...I would have paid approximately $50 dollars more for this fine instrument. DW did it again!!
