WOW

By Jerry Ballard

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

For years I have played on a Tama Iron Cobra double pedal. A while back I started using the pedal as a single pedal. I was thinking about getting the Tama Speed Cobra single pedal. I went to my local GC and tried it out. Boy was I disappointed! I started playing around with the DW 5000 Accelerator pedal. I started doing some triplets right from the start. Hmmm. I looked at the price and decided to buy it. I was even more surprised at check out. The pedal was even cheaper than what GC had listed in the store. With all that being said, I just finished playing after an 1 1/2 with the new DW. BEST pedal I have ever played on! I have no idea why I never bought this pedal to begin with. I highly recommend this pedal!!!!!

Top of the line pedal

By Cheesie

from Richmond, Virginia

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

I'll start with simple stuff. In addition to the pedal, it comes with a pedal bag with strap, a manual, a drum key in a drum key holder in the floor plate, two different Allen keys, a beater weight, a toe stop, an extra screw, an extra washer, and a hoop protector pad. The floor plate has three Velcro strips on the bottom and there are two screws to dig into a drum rug/carpet for traction. This is my second DW pedal, my first was a 5000CX which is a radius rod pedal with a single chain and Accelerator cam, no floor plate. This is much more solid. Both have the same speed and adjustability though. I like the side-positioned bass hoop clamp screw. The 5000CX was a pain, since the screw was right under the pedal. I like the feel of this pedal as much as the feel of the Tama Speed Cobra and Pearl Demon Drive (and Mapex Falcon and DW 9000) pedals which cost more. Those pedals are nice and you get the pedal-feel flexibility if that's what you want. A lot of people like to describe high-end fancy pedals as smooth and fast, but you can dial in medium-cost pedals the same way but you won't get some adjustability features or road-worthy ruggedness. Mainly, I got this pedal for its value, quality and features. I got it on sale and with a coupon. So that's that. The imprinted numbers on the pedal are smaller than they were on my DW 5000CX and on my DW 5000 hi-hat stand. I guess that's just a style change for the sake of change. Doesn't matter for me since I wear sneakers when I play. Out of the box, it's dialed in nice... at least for me it is. I won't be changing the location of the chain on the cam. There are four holes and the end of the chain is placed at the second hole from the end of the cam. I extend the beater rod as far up as possible and not add the beater weight. By the way, the beater comes with a memory clamp. They put a sticker to see where you have set your spring adjustment screw. I didn't need to tighten the spring. There's a felt tube placed in the spring to keep it quiet. You can also adjust the location of the spring to the hex-shaped axle, I don't know the name of this part. Anyway, I leave it at 0, the factory setting. This pedal may not be for the drummer who does not want a cam action in their bass pedal.

Design-Intelligent.

By chrisrw.

from North Carolina

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

This pedal has done a world of good. I play a lot of hardcore music and decided to try something new and be different by sporting a single instead of the generic double. When I first looked at the 9000 series I felt that it was too smooth. Iron Cobra's just don't give enough power and I don't like the feel. I got my foot on this pedal and realized I had found the one that fits me and my style. This pedal is not a good fit for every player. No pedal is. If you've got some experience under your belt, this pedal will be a dream. For any player who has worked hard to have a fast foot with plenty of power and is touring on the regular basis. This pedal gets a five star. For any player who just plays for a hobby, this pedal is great for that too. It will easily help build strength, speed, and endurance. Great Choice. Good work DW.

This pedal WILL make you a better player!

By Brett

from WA

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

This is, by far, the fastest, smoothest, most solid feeling pedal I have ever played! It has made playing very fast doubles almost effortless. Plus, it has an endless amount of adjustment to suit any style or preference you could think of. I know I'm just repeating eveybody else here, but this pedal IS the best. But don't take my word for it...get your own and find out!!

The Best I've ever played on! I owned it!

By Praises for God

from Houston,TX

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

This is the best kick I've ever played on! It is awesome! I love to perform double and triple kicks on the bass drum, and this pedal conforms to any manuever I attempt. I especially like the ability to losen and tighten the the pedal as well as the two sided mallet to change the attack and sound it it great whether you are playing soft music or fast upbeat music.

The Last Pedal You Will Ever Need

By Neil

from Rockaway NJ

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

After 2 years of using a Tama Iron cobra, I felt that i needed a change. I had been looking into many different pedals. Now i have decided that this pedal is the only one for me. Not only does it have a quick responce, but it also has an amazing solid feel. I would recommend this pedal to anyone, and will serve you well in any style of music.
