DW9000 Pedals

http://www.dwdrums.com/pedals/9000Pedals.htm

The limitless cam is a fabulous idea. I really would
like to play one of these sometime.

I was really big on these pedals whenever they first hit the market.

They are incredibley smooth. Not only in the cam performance, but also in the overall pedal board feel, and I love that

However, one complaint, although it's the key factor in why they're such responsive pedals, the spring placement, which is on the inside of the pedal, doesn't work with me. If you do any side-to-side work and wear shoes (have wide feet like I do too), unless you're careful with it, the springs become inferior... The side of my foot was rubbing it non-stop. Not a bad pedal, but personally, I'd rather take the actual pedal board of the 9000 and swap it with a 5000.

I used to have a set of DW5002 pedals, I broke the chains on both pedals, and I don't mash the pedals either. The pedals were also very heavy no matter what setting I used. I went to Pearl Eliminators strap drive and they are the only pedal for me. And they costed less than the DWs. Who knows though, the newer DW's could be better, but I'm sticking with my Pearls.

ughhhhh... how did you break the chains??? I've never heard of that happening... I have the 5002 and it's light as a feather with amazing rebound and control...

I toyed with 9000 once... it really feels great... it feels like it molds to your foot and becomes part of your body... tis very nice

I have the 9000's and must admit that spring placement is stupid.
I love the smoothness of the pedal that it makes it worth it. Best pedal ever

JTD,

Have you tried the Axis-A's? How do you compare them?

Well, I have 9000 double pedal( limited edition ) for more than 1,5 years and I just love it- smooth,fast,durable and spring placement does not bother me at all... But regular 9000 is much heavier and I was not satisfied with the overall feel and responce so I am lucky to be a friend of some DW overseas dealer to get the first hand on the LIMITED EDITION...
