Default DW accelerator pedal

I'm sure this pedal has been reviewed but could someone give their thoughts on this. I just got one but it's still in the box since my kit hasn't arrived. The retailer reviews sounded good and I thought I'd spend a little extra money on a solid single kick pedal rather than hundreds more on a double kick.

If your talking about the 5000 series accelerator pedal then I think you made a great choice.

The 5000 has been an industry standard and workhorse since it came on the market. If you got a new one, it's going to possibly overwhelm you with the amount of adjustability options it has.

Read the manual, play with the settings, and seriously spend some time getting it to feel comfortable on your kick and under your foot. Even little things like the toe clamp have to be played with a bit to fully work as they're intended, but at the end of your initial adjustment session you will get a very nice, natural pedal that is a joy to play.

Why did DW ever paint the bottom plate red on their 5000 series, lol.

Why did they ever switch from single to double chain?
