Re: DW 9000 vs. DW 5000
I have an IC single. I tried eliminators, aixs, gibraltar (their best ones), and some yamaha flying dragons. At the time I definitely found the ICs the more comfortable pedal. I tried some 5000s and 9000s a month or so later found them to be better. I also really like the Yamaha FDs now. Don't get me wrong the ICs are a great pedal and there's nothing wrong with them, but I liked the DWs better. The 9000s were just sooo smooth.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
