Re: Help choosing bass drum pedal, PLEASE!
The DW9000 is way too smooth. Melted butter smooth. And as you know, they are not cheap. The DW5000 is a workhorse, not quite as smooth IMO - solid, perhaps heavier?
I have both on practice kits (but I use a Trick double in studio).
I haven't tried the Yammie Flying Dragon.
How about this - does Mapex make that pedal in a double? If it's one of their cheap pedals, perhaps a Mapex double that is higher up the food chain? I don't know much about their pedals myself. Their drums are nice.
