Re: DW 5000 Help
I guess they say double chain systems are more reliable and won't de-rail and are smoother. I've used strap drive, single chain, double chain and direct drive and to me, the way I see it, so long as your pedal is properly centered and clamped onto the hoop nice and tight, the odds of a malfunction are long to impossible (unless you're one of those swivel foot guys who move their foot side to side, then I'd definitely get a double chain). My foot doesn't have any preference either.
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drums all day!
