Default Re: DW 5000

My DW 5000's are the single chain delta model from the early 90's. I only play them because I got given them for free, and I've never been a massive double kick player, so I've never felt the need to replace them, until now. The bearings in the slave are shot. The latency and lack of feel in the slave is unreal, to the point where I struggle to play it well. The master pedal is fine and I'll probably continue to use it as a single and bin the slave. Don't think I'll bother getting another 5000, I've played a friends and I much prefer the Speed Cobra to it..
A Slave to rhythm and the fickle nature of charm.
