I'm actually really thinking of buying a used 9000 single just to try it out for a while and then return it. Two things that bother me is, I don't like buying used as you really don't know the condition of it or how "clean" a person was when they owned it and then you really don't know if you're getting the true performance out of it when it's used. Even ones in excellent condition, you just never know if it's at it's optimum working condition. Though I suspect it should be good enough. It's not really fair to buy things brand new to test them only to return them. I would think it hurts both the drum company and GC. Probably best to try used as they have a 30 day return on them usually.
Unless your used DW9000 found it's way on the Titanic, at the bottom of the ocean for 100 years, it should work fine. I bought mine used off ebay for $300 or so, I forget. That was seven years ago. Albeit I have not used the slave part of the pedal at all until recently.

Now I know why you hate me :)
