Are you talking about the Best Buy chain store? I'm surprised that if the drums were new, they would come with that pedal, because it's been discontinued for a while.

Also, are you sure the drums are Stage Customs? The local Best Buy store here sells Yamaha Gigmaker Drums. The Gigmakers usually run about $400 or less for a shell pack. With a hardware pack, they're usually $599 or less. The Stage Customs usually sell for $649 for a shell pack, and about $899 with hardware. And they don't come with that kind of pedal.
Do you have any pictures of the drums?

The DW 5000 is a good pedal, but I don't think you need to be in a rush to get one. Try one out and see how it feels to you compared to the Yamaha. You might just want to use the Yamaha for a while.
