Overview

To create incredibly smooth, gravity-defying action, the DW 9000PB Single Pedal has a Floating Rotor that's not permanently affixed on a conventional drive shaft but is mounted on a free-floating drive shaft using friction-reducing ball bearings. In addition, the patented rotor can be adjusted using the Infinite Torque Adjustment for a variety of positions from center (Turbo-style) to eccentric (Accelerator-style), achieving the desired balance of power and precision in any playing situation. Furthermore, by moving the location of the Floating Spring from the end of the hex shaft to the center of the pedal, the vertical alignment of the moving parts is maintained and the indirect transfer and loss of energy is virtually eliminated - further optimizing the pedal's speed and power and precision.

In addition to Delta ball-bearings at the rocker, hex shaft, and hinge, the 9000 also employs friction-reducing ball-bearings in the rotor and spring connector while incorporating several of the 5000 Series' most popular upgrades such as a stackable heel plate, dual/side adjusting hoop clamp, 101 2-way beater, built-in spurs, and lightweight aluminum pedal plates and linkages. Includes deluxe Cordura bag.

I've been using my DW 9000 pedal for a couple of months now. The pedal is a substantial piece of drum equipment weighing in at approximately 6 lbs. The pedals are assembled in the USA with components manufactured in Taiwan and the USA. The entire assembly is mounted to a sturdy aluminum base. The underside of the base has strips of Velcro, which does an excellent job of adhering the pedal to a low pile drum rug. There are two angled spurs to further anchor the pedal, however I find the spurs are not needed when using a drum rug as the Velcro is very sticky. The pedal's operation is extremely quite, smooth and responsive. To me there is a nice weighted feel when my foot is pulled back far enough to see the dw logo and the 9 or part of the 9 on the footboard. If you typically allow yourself to to get used to default settings when you buy something, out of the box this pedal feels pretty good. If your constantly tweaking with settings trying to get that perfect feel, then this pedal might keep you busy as there are many available adjustments and many settings within each adjustment. The bass drum hoop clamp can be adjusted so the angle of the pinch can accommodate different hoop thicknesses. The actual opening and closing of the clamp shoots out to the right side allowing for easy access, not having to mess around underneath the footboard to clamp or remove the pedal. Out of the box the pedal is equipped with a double chain. There is also a nylon strap for players who prefer that. I haven't tried the nylon strap. From what I have read the nylon drive system allows for a more relaxed, floating pedal feel. One of the adjustments I found complex is the torque adjustment. From the factory the pedal is set to the eccentric torque position (referring to the manual to remember this stuff). Eccentric = increased speed and sensitivity. A concentric adjustment can be made as well. Concentric = powerful and consistent feel. The book suggests concentric for general purpose playing. There is a lot of in-between on these settings. I have mine set somewhere in the middle. Other adjustments to be made are the footboard angle and stroke distance. The heel platform can also be elevated, however this requires the purchase of a DW Pedal Customizing Kit. The stock heel platform is 3/4" from the floor. I play heel-up and never rest down one the heel platform when I'm playing. The pedal has a 5-year limited warranty. Cast parts are covered moving parts are not. One thing to consider about the DW 9000 is it cannot be converted to a double-pedal set-up. If you have no interest in a double-pedal or want a solid dedicated single, of the choices out there this is nice option in my opinion. I really like the sturdy feel of this pedal. The footboard only moves two ways, down and up. There isn't any side to side play or that swinging hammock feel I have experienced with a more entry level pedal. Also, used in conjunction with a drum rug the kick drum doesn't budge (at least not in my applications).

I thought this pedal was garbage. I've been playing a 5000 Accelerator for about 4 years and haven't found a better pedal on the market. The 9000 is poorly designed and doesn't have a feel that can even be compared to the 5000. If you play fast and hard, the footboard is prone to banging into the big, oversized cam. Regardless of adjustment, it doesn't have the power and speed of the feel of the 5000. The beater also resides much further to the right than it should, make it fall 2" to 3" right of the center of the head...which reduces the sound of the drum. Hated it! Returned it 3 days later!

Worth every penny...

By Moda

from Gilbert, AZ

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

It's really hard to describe how amazing this pedal really is. You HAVE to try it for yourself. I used Iron Cobra Rolling Glide double pedals for a couple months and tried a 9000...wow, thats all i could say at the moment. So i returned the IC's and got a single Dw 9000PB. The 9000 double pedal is also amazing but it still has a slave pedal, so it's not going to feel the same. That's why im adding another kick to my kit. But seriously, before you buy a pedal TRY THE DW 9000PB, YOU'LL THANK ME!!

DW 9000

By drumminskillz

from Hoffman Estates, IL

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I have been using the DW 9000 for over a year and I would never play a show without it. I've tried several other pedals, but nothing else came close to this. Many would argue that the Iron Cobra is just as good for less money, however I must disagree. The DW 9000 is just hands down, the greatest pedal out there.

Great pedal, but...

By Justin

from Virginia

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

So I've had this pedal for a year and it has never failed me. AMAZINGLY smooth and adjustable and built like a tank. However, if you're a player like me who likes the foot board to be a little on the high side, you might want to think twice about getting this pedal because of one major design flaw... The front of the foot board (especially when playing heel-down) can sometimes "clank" against the cam and depending on how heavy the stroke is it can be rather loud. I've only recorded once with this pedal and won't do it again because of the metal-to-metal contact that this pedal can create. If DW were to redesign it, the pedal would be flawless, but for now the quieter DW 5000 will be my weapon of choice.

DW 9000

By Nouseforaname

from Chicago, IL

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I recently bought the DW 9000 as a downgrade from the double pedal version. Both pedals are phenomenal investments. This pedal allows for hard hitting with a very smooth attack. I play fairly fast music, while sometimes playing doubles and triplets on the bass drum. This pedal allows more consistant hits and accuracy. I owned the Iron Cobra double pedal about 3 years ago, which did not compare to he DW 9000. Although it is one of the more expensive models on the market, it is well worth it. You will never buy another pedal.

It is great

By csrbtl18

from Illinois

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

This is an amazing pedal. I have been using it for about half a year or so and it is definately better than most pedals out there. The tension adjustments systems are really good on it. Even though it is a bit pricy, it is worth it. Unless you want the double pedals, I would suggest this as a top choice.

Slick, smooth, and fast!

By Oldskool drummer

from Texas

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I had to think hard about putting out this kind of money for a pedal, but the 9000 has proven to be well worth what I paid for it. Very quick and responsive, and as smooth as silk. Easiest playing pedal I've ever seen and I've played a lot of them. Like another reviewer said, this pedal with a hardcore beater is awesome!!

Super comfy to play

By Jesse Lendzion

from Loomis CA

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

Okay I literally just bought this pedal 2 hrs ago. I had recently been playing the TAMA Iron Cobra, and I had such a hard time dialing it in, some one else mentioned that they felt like they were fighting it all the time and i have to agree, I never felt solid with it. So...I sold it back to Guitar Center and picked up the 9000. Just played it for about an hour, and the Iron Cobra does not even come close to this pedal (Not to bash TAMA, I have a Starclassic Bubinga kit and their RoadPro hardware, love it) But I didn't even have to tweak anything with the 9000, just hooked it up and it felt amazing. Super smooth and solid, I really like the beater it came with, has a good amount of felt on one end and then you can flip it to plastic to get some more slap. If you are thinking of getting a new pedal, save up for this one, being comfortable on the kick is so essential, and I'm convinced that there's not a better way to do it than the DW9000.

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

amazing pedal! smooth, gliding response, highly adjustable. well built. compared to all of the other pedals out there, this one destroys them all. if you are tired of mediocre hardware. save your money and buy DW 9000 series. at least for your bass pedal and hi hat stand.

Very responsive

By Chicken Bone

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

Great Petal! I was a fan of the 5000 series for a long time, but this petal is way more responsive and solid as a rock. Hit your local GC and try the rest. I'm willing to bet it's in the top 3 for feel and #1 in options.

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I can see that other people are writing long winded reviews...because it deserves it!!! To put it short and to the point, this pedal covers all the basic needs and more. It's impossibly fast, super smooth, and built like a bullet proof armored car. DW should just put a cape and mask on this superhero of pedals.

Excellent pedal

By JIMMY LARSON

from Lincoln, Alabama

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I've been playing for over 40 years and have used many different types and brands and this one is by far the best I've used. I haven't had any problems with the pedal banging into anything while playing. I don't play like a maniac either. I do play hard driving music and this pedal does the job extremely well. It's smooth and fast. The adjustments are great allowing you to make the pedal "yours". I've never liked double pedal setups and this pedal allows me to do almost as well as if I had a double pedal with half the effort. Excellent piece of equipment. Has my strongest endorsement.

Great pedal

By Matt Altieri

from Massachusetts

Comments about DW 9000PB Single Pedal:

I just got this pedal and I really like it. It makes your work on the pedal pretty effortless. I think it is awesome how much you can adjust and change this pedal to fit your comfortability for playing whatever style of music that you want to play. I do like this pedal overall and it was a great upgrade from my old DW7000 which was terrible, the only thing that I dont like about this pedal is that in the manual that you recieve the information is very vague and not too informative. I wish that it told you more how to adjust the pedal and all of the settings. For the most part this pedal is a great buy!
