Industry-standard bass drum pedals have always been a DW mainstay and the Machined Direct Drive Pedal from DW is no exception. Packed with a slew of drummer-friendly features, the MDD is machined from solid aluminum and is the result of years of painstaking design and engineering. The ultimate goal is to offer players unprecedented feel and versatility, whether they currently play a direct drive pedal, or not.

In doing so, an Optimized Fulcrum Geometry linkage was developed to offer smooth, effortless action with just the right amount of beater throw. Other standard features include: a newly-designed, solid aluminum, perforated footboard with a contoured heel plate, interlocking Delta hinge, TBT (Threaded Bearing Technology) in the drive linkage and cam, Tri-Pivot swivel toe clamp, solid aluminum direct-drive cam with pivot adjustment, Vert (Vertical Sliding Spring Adjustment), Control beater with adjustable weight/impact, and more.

In addition, the double pedal offers a lightweight single-post auxiliary pedal and a patented AB (All-Bearing) zero-backlash universal joint.

Features
  • Solid aluminum construction
  • Optimized Fulcrum Geometry linkage
  • Perforated footboard with countoured heel plate
  • Interlocking Delta hinge
  • Threaded Bearing Technology (TBT) in the drive linkage and cam
  • Tri-pivot swivel toe clamp
  • Solid aluminum direct-drive cam with pivot adjustment

No real difference than the standard 9000 series.

By Cruddola

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about DW Machined Direct Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

Stick with the standard 9000 or buy two 5000 series, they've been around forever. They last forever too. For the price of the Machined pedal a pair of 5000's could be bought and have dough left over. Easy to repair and service parts widely available. They used to be Camco back in my day. Ludwig's Speed-King was the other must have. I have the standard 9000 and it's not much of an increase worthy of the cost. Boutique don't cut it for the working guy. Always have a complete spare set! The pull spring system is as old as dirt. There ain't much to improve it except to make it look prettier. If you got the money for the fancy-looking 9000 buy the Trick instead, you'll go much further as it is a compressed spring system. The return can't be beat for the next stroke. There are many other brands that will do as good or better, try them out at GC. It costs nothing to take them for a spin. Buy what works for YOU. Famous drummers are paid to use brands, that's why they endorse. Buy what works for YOU!! I've had top of the line Singerland to Sonor drums and everything between. The only constant is my Yamaha HEX-Rack system. Drums come and go but the Hex-Rack always stays! Multi-brand friendly. Got about ten grand invested since they first came out. The other constant is my DW 5000 series pedals (six) and my 9000 series cabled hi-hats (4). The best bang for my buck for the way I play. I purchased a used (mint) ten-piece set of Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute in Plum Stain from GC on line three years ago because I had played them in the past. and couldn't afford them. Today I can afford any top shelf brand. To me they sound light years ahead of any Sonor to DW collector series that I have owned or ever played. I didn't care much for the Recording Customs but loved the Rock Tour Customs I was never able to score for myself. The Maple Custom Absolutes are sitting mighty pretty in the middle of the living room, all ten of them!

Comments about DW Machined Direct Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

When I purchased these pedals I was disappointed at first mainly because of the price and I could hardly play them at first. For me it took awhile to get used to them however once I did I wouldn't want to play anything else. They have a natural feel and are adjustable in everyway except forward and back like the trick pedals. I do wish they made a chain driven version as I prefer them over direct drive. I must admit though this is an awesome pedal and a must have for any drummer who can afford them. They will be around longer than I will and are made to last.

      Comments about DW Machined Direct Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      Been playing direct pedals for years but my old pedals needed replacement! So I tried the new DW MDD pedals at Guitar Center and went home and bought online because I needed more equipment! It took me literally 3 minutes to makes all the adjustments for my playing very user friendly! I guess because I've used only direct drive pedals I flew on these pedals right away they are very fast and easy to control! I was also looking at the 9000 series but found these pedals were so much better! Everything about the pedal is first class in construction and high end quality thru out the pedal with attention to every detail! The only thing I didn't use was the weights for the beater felt good with not using them,I'll try to experiment later! Theanks for the pedal!
