Re: DW pedals ... kind of crap?
I played 5000 series pedals for more than 20 years, they are far from "crap" as you put it. The 3000 I can't comment on but the 5000 is a tank and a workhorse. I have a 5000 series two leg stand as well that I've used for 15 years and it's never given me a single problem and feels very sturdy and well constructed. I also have a 9000 series pedal that I've used for 4 years and just got a yamaha flying dragon direct drive and have to say I prefer the feel of the yamaha over my dw's.
