Re: DW 9000 vs. DW 5000
...I have both a 5000, and 9000 single pedal.
My only complaint about the 9000 is that I can't set the beater height as high as I would like to when using my 24" bass drum.
Also, I have to re jig the thing when using it with my 20" bass drum, in order to get the right feel from it.
If I had to choose one over the other, I would lean more towards the 5000.
Just my two cents.
...if you can't keep it civil, at least make it funny.
