Default New (to me) DW 5000 pedals all around






Just some shots from today at reahearsal of my new stuff. A single 5000, 10' remote, a 5500TD 2 leg and a double 5000. They all are so smooth it makes me want to practice more. I also figured out a way to mount my 12x3" tama snare off of my hi hat stand to free up the necessary floor room for all those new pedals. It looks a little unbalanced, but works really well. I wouldn't recommend mounting a snare like that off of a lighter duty hi hat stand...

woah looks great! Im sure they play well... its funny that you posted this thread, as i was looking for info on these pedals. I plan to buy a single DW 5000 AD3 pedal quite soon (the accelerator, not turbo), as i usually play fast doubles on my single foot, but im finding my current pedal is holding my speed on the doubles back.. would you recommend this pedal for playing quick tight doubles (on the one foot)?

Cheers!

Richard

I'd recommend the accelerators for fast one foot playing for sure.

I actually had to adjust my foot timing to prevent myself from rushing the day i switched from my pearl p100 to these accelerators. They are really quick.

AD3 is a very good pedal. I had one of those and a Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct Drive which I A/B'd for about a month before deciding the Yamaha had won out. So I sold the DW and bought a second Yamaha. Having had an older DW5000 double, the AD3 is a refinement of.

How many feet do you have? Ha, looks cool, but a bit too many pedals to move around, I'll bet it keeps you jumpin though.

I can't complain about moving gear around... I actually need and use all of this stuff at every show. And when our keyboard player hauls a hammond and leslie to every gig... you gotta suck it up.

Haha... I just love having tons of stuff to do, and sound options.

I can't effectively describe an AD3, because I don't have one. My kick pedals are probably like 12 years old. They are very very smooth though, I'm sure the newer models wouldn't be worse. They are really light too, even more so if you get the older ones like mine before they doubled the chain and made the chain run in a track instead of on a gear. These older ones have very little moving mass, especially on the master side.

The remote hat is a little clunky, but I had it set up with a 20" swish on top of a 16" trash cymbal, so with a set of regular hats it would probably be really nice. It could probably use some graphite lube on the cable too... The 5500TD is the best hi hat stand I've ever stepped on.
