i have had these pedals for about three years and they are great for learning purposes and building up endurance but they are just too heavy. i would recommend to anyone that is just starting out on double bass but not for someone who has experience. they are easy to adjust and last a long time but after a while an upgrade is a must.

never again

By unnatural threat

from ontario, Canada

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

i bought the dw 5000ad3 about 18 months ago after months of reading over thousands of reviewsand trying out differant pedals. the negitives i found with them are: the lugs that hold the connecting rod togeather come loose. it dont matter how tight you get them they fall out. i lost 3 of them and the memory lock within the first 6 months. another problem ive had was last month when the chain actually broke. ive been playing for 15 years and have had many differant pedals including cheap 100 dollar junk and have never broke one. finding a replacement in Canada was almost impossible. i called 10 differant stores and nothing for a dw chain. i had to use a Yamaha and its a way better quality chain than the dw. lastly last week i noticed both springs have streached. so heres another 30 bucks i have to blow on them. save your money here and go Pearl, thats what im going to do.

love it

By John

from Princeton, NJ

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

This pedal is genuinely amazing. Out of the box it has enough tension that it's easy to control but at the same time feels very natural when you use it. Also I like how the slave pedal can be converted to a second single pedal because I own a pearl double bass kit and a four piece shine kit, so it's good for someone like me who switches around.

not impressed

By ashton

from Michigan

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

i bought a set of these pedals about 6 months ago after reading reviews for about 2 months on pedals and ive had nothing except problems with the bearings. the problem was within the first month on the pedals and i got a replacement. now my second sets bearings are so bad that even without any spring tension at all, the pedal itself is being supported and the service at the guitar center i was at was horrible. i was told it wasn't my bearings and they did some work on it and as soon as i brought it home i couldn't even play 5 notes without having a problem. if you get these pedals get the extra coverage or better yet, don't buy them at all.

Greatest Pedal

By Christian Brunelle

from Waterford, CT

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

I have been saving up money for this pedal. The chain drive is slicker than the strap drive and is without a doubt better than a metal shaft for the drive. The comfort level is great. Though, the DW 9000 is a little bit better but it's too much money. The DW 50002AD3 pedal is a great pedal and a great price.

duh its a DW

By david e

from tucson, az

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

this pedal is everything you can expect from dw. i spent almost an hour tring to get my pedal the way i like it cause it has so many features. the pedal is really smooth. what i really like is that it does not take a lot of force to get a loud kick from the pedal. i have been playing for over a decade and i've been around the block. its worth it every penny i spent and trust me im not made of money.

DW 5000 Double Bass Drum Pedal

By myfriendisrelatedtolespaul

from Wisconsin

Comments about DW 5002AD3 Accelerator Double Pedal:

I have had this pedal for a couple months and I am very pleased with it. It is by far the smoothest and quickest pedal I have played. It has double chains to provide extra control, and is fully customizable with the different positions you can put it in. Has great little features like clips to store drum keys in. You will not regret buying this pedal!
