Re: Kick Triplets
If you still have your old pedal, put it side by side with your 5000 and match the footboard angle. Then match the beater angle on your 5000 with the beater angle on your old pedal. Next get the spring tension on the 5000 the same as your old pedal as best as you can. If that doesn't do it, get a Speed King, or use your old pedal. The DW 5000 really should be up to the task, it's a fast and fairly light pedal IMO.
Now go fetch your shine box like a good little Wumpus.
