Re: new Drum Workshop Direct Drive pedal @ NAMM 2014
I think it looks awesome (not that it should matter; I'll be stomping on it) and I can't wait to play it. I was toying with the idea of getting a 9000 double, but I guess I'll wait and see how these new pedals feel. And I think it's awesome that the new pedal is fully manufactured in the USA, not just assembled in California.
I like the new beater a lot, too - it's like an overengineered Iron Cobra beater.
