DW 5000 single bass pedal
To play your bass drum clean and with confidence you need to have the best bass drum pedal and for me the DW 5000 single bass pedal fit the bill.
This legend of a pedal keeps being updated by DW and just gets better and better.
I find it easy to do doubles and all with a controlled balance easy playing style the pedal encourages.
Yes a bit on the pricy side, but this pedal will last you out and will be a reliable asset to your drumming.
What DW say about the DW 5000
“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.
Featuring a host of refinements and upgrades, the legendary line of 5000 Series bass drum pedals still features a choice of drive systems, aluminum hex shafts, pedal plates and linkages, 101 two-way beater, and built in spurs. These pedals can be customized to fit the needs of any player.
The 5002 is also available in a “Lefty” version.
(U.S. Patent Nos. 9240169, 5204485, 4756224, 5431081, 5578777. Foreign Patents Pending.)
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.
The Turbo™ (TD4) concentric drive system maintains a direct relationship between the sprocket and the footboard to provide a solid, powerful, consistent feel and response. ”
