Dw Single Pedal - Free Delivery
Inertia - The tendency of a body to resist acceleration; the tendency of a body at rest to remain at rest or of a body in motion to stay in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force.
In other words, inertia is the physical force that is the enemy of quick and powerful bass drumming. It is the force that Drum Workshop has been battling through its relentless invention and re-invention of the perfect bass drum pedal. And DW wins the war against inertia with its most famous and relied-upon model, the DW 5000! For 2012, DW has unveiled the latest evolution of this classic pedal with the DW5000 Accelerator AD4 !
Among the improvements to the new 5000AD4 pedals are a Tri-Pivot toe clamp that includes 3 self-adjusting rubber-coated pads that securely anchors the pedal to a variety of bass drum counter hoop sizes, a Dual-Spring Rocker that improves the feel and recoil of the pedal and a non-skid rubber pad under the base plate designed for wood, carpet and other playing surfaces.
Other standard features include: the Delta ball-bearing hinge, 101 2-way beater, light-weight aluminum base plate, Accelerator dual-chain and sprocket drive cam and road-worthy all-metal construction and more.
DW Founder, Don Lombardi, comments about his flagship product, “Our company was basically founded on the 5000 pedal and we’ve always considered ourselves a pedal company first. I’m really proud of this new pedal and we’ve only improved upon an already good thing. We were really careful not to reinvent the wheel. Drummers are really comfortable with this pedal, so we wanted to maintain the basic feel and keep it as reliable as ever.”
DW Director of Research and Development, Rich Sikra, also comments, “The DW5000 pedal has had incredible longevity in the marketplace and part of the reason for that is that we are always improving its functionality. There is a world of difference between this latest incarnation of the 5000 and the pedal that became popular in the 70’s and 80’s. Of course, if you still want the original design, we offer our 6000 Series pedals. We’re always thinking about how we can make these pedals better. How can we make a product that can further the art of drumming? We think this new 5000 is our best yet.”
