Re: DW hardware - produced in Taiwan or China?
I have a hi hat stand purchased about a year ago that I remember was clearly labeled "Taiwan" or "China" either on the box or on a sticker on the stand.
I have an older double 5002 pedal from mid 90's that has "USA" on the footboard under "5000". The newer ones don't have this anymore, but instead has "the drummer's choice" in script. So I'm inclined to believe this may be the case for pedals too.
