Default Is there any difference

Is there any difference between DW 3000 pedals and DW 7000, personally I don't see any difference and if they are basicly the same pedals, why do they have different names?

Unless I'm missing something, they don't make 7000 pedals any more. They're not on the site.

I believe that DW renamed their pedals a little while ago, same pedals, different numbering, on some models at least.

They are essentially the same pedals. DW renamed them to 3000 because of confusion. For a while, DW were making the 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000 and 9000 series. The 5000, 8000 and 9000 were the 'fully professional' ranges, the 7000 a 'mid' range and the 6000 were the 'lightweight' range - basically a version of the old 5000 pedal before they updated it.

The 8000 was a combination of the 5000 and the 9000 - the 9000 being the 'flagship' product. There was an issue in the naming because the 7000 had a higher number than at least one (and probably its most popular) 'professional' product. 2000 and 4000 had already been used so 3000 was the number that was free.

I hope that makes sense. Now the DW range is much less confusing.

2000, 3000 - Entry level/mid-level (4000 is no longer made, the 3000 is what used to be the 7000 but is the same pedal)
5000, 9000 - Professional (8000 is no longer made)
6000 - Lightweight.
