Default DW 9000 Pedal Problem

I've have the 9000 pedals for about 4 months and the slave pedal all the sudden started feeling weird in the middle of practice. I start messing with it, and I find that when I cock back both beaters with my hands and let them go, the slave beater stops after about half the swings of the primary beater.. and there is a little creak in it, inaudible, but I can feel it in my feet

anyone know what causes that.. nothing is loose.

it feels like the slave pedal is a little slower now as well...

any help is appreciated.

Same thing happened to mine. It's the drive shaft it's made with a pin assembly which doesn't hold up well at all. if you take it off an examine it I'd bet it has developed alot of play where it connects to the left side pedal.

I had to buy a Axis Universal drive shaft since I got tired of replacing the left side of the DW shaft. Save the headache and get the axis shaft on it, I've had mine over 5 years with no issue on the 9000's. The shaft is the only thing on the dw9000 i don't love.

Another thing to look at is how the shaft connects to the main pedal. You have to leave a small gap between the shaft and the upright that it connects to. If you butt it right up against there, the parts rub together which would create enough friction to cause what you are describing.

both of these guys are right. the u-joints (brass on aircraft aluminum) is one of the biggest throw aways I've ever experienced. Overall, great pedals but the 9002's slave pedal chassis is that of a 5000 series. Spring mount on the pedal post is fixed. Anywho...the Axis suggestion is certainly the way to go. Mine are in their case as I use the Demon Drives now but thought I'd share what I know on the 9000's. Good luck.

Try asking Dr Pedal in the Drummerworld forum, he might be able to help you, he actually designed the pedals

I had the dw 5000 and after a couple of years I noticed if you hold the one end of either side of the drive shaft and the twist it you will notice some play. I bought the axis shaft and it helped. That shaft loosened too over time but you can heat it up in the oven and tighten the screws. (They have locktite on them and be careful not to over tigthen them cause it makes the joints pretty stiff)
