Default So DW brings out the new 9000 pedal...

It was just a matter of time...

3 interesting improvements. It's got that friendly bass drum hoop clamp seen on the DW5000 and the Ludwig Atlas pedals. Supposedly an easier to adjust cam. Rubberized bottom. I was wondering if they re-engineered the U joint axle. That wasn't mentioned.

Interesting still. $30 more than the original. (double pedal)

They should have given it a zero latency driveshaft like the pearl has.

I'll prob be getting one in the new year anyway.

Can you please tell us more about these zero latency driveshafts? :)

They sound awefully enticing!

http://memphisdrumshop.com/index.php...ducts_id=12749

Searching that link for you, I stumbled on the pearl forum and they were saying that they do develop play over time but mine feels 100% after 2-3 years of ownership. I have tried to fit this part to the DW9002 in store and it didn't work, but APPARENTLY the axis equivalent can be used universally.

DW do offer one, I emailed them about it a while ago but it was pricey and IMO should come with the pedal as standard as lag is the devil.

$320 for the DW. Man, that's f'n expensive. $120 for the AXIS u joint which I here is good.

Heck, consider the Trick pedals. Pretty solid zero latency U joints. And very smooth overall. Built very solid and durable.

Still not offering the 9000's in a longboard I see. Bet a lot more metal guys would be using them if they did. You can get the 5000 and the 8000 (when they made them) with the long board, but not the 9000? Shame, they are great feeling pedals, silky smooth, but that hinge-heel plate design is horrible.

And yes, the AXIS universal shaft is $120, and it's a nice improvement for sure.

I owned a DW 9000 and never got on very well with it. I tried all kinds of adjustments, changed from chain to strap and it always felt heavy and I really felt like it was fighting me. My calf would cramp at the end of a long gig with this pedal.

I sold it and changed to the Sonor Perfect Balance pedal and I am very happy with it. Very quick, smooth, light feel. This pedal feels like it is stuck to my foot and anything my foot can do this pedal can do. It is also quite a bit less expensive than the DW9000. I will probably get a couple more for use with my other sets.

The stock DW beater is very heavy. I always use the Yamaha felt beaters, they are the lightest beaters out there.

Stupid expensive (Bigfoot & Pro1-V). I picked up the Dominator double pedal for $475. Extremely smooth and well built with top quality material. That was my main concern.

I'll say it again though, I've seen some cats shred with some ugly pedals.

Only a longboard. Unfortunately, there is no short board option.

Why don't more companies do what Pearl did the Demon? Both long and short in one pedal.

I played the Trick Pro-1v single pedal that I got for $369 and as much as I liked it, I kept doing things to it to make it feel like my old DW5000 pedal, which is just an improvement over the old skool Camco chain drive pedal from the 60s/70s. So of course at that point, I couldn't justify using it if I made it feel just like my second-hand Tama Iron Cobra Jr. pedal I got at the time for $50.

I did eventually upgrade to the strap-drive Iron Cobra and I like that. I guess my foot will never need an over-priced pedal ;)

That would be cool if Trick did it. But man I would hate to see their price...

So...

if you see a DW9000 in the stores, is there an easy way to tell if it's the new one?

Maybe the new ones aren't even available yet?

The base of the pedal has a rubber sole instead of velcro, the clamp has three 360 degree pivot ball bearing instead of just a clamp.

I have the new DWCP9002. It's nice, and feel better than the 5000 that I came from.

Here's one of the main reasons why I upgraded:

I just picked up a DW9000 single. One of the current models being cleared out for the new ones.
The new improvements seem nice, but I'm happy with the deal I got - $179 from GC for the black friday sale.

I want this new 9002, mostly 'cos of the nylon carrying case.

Where are they cheapest in the US?

I see them on ebay but by the looks of it they're still clearing old models, and I was looking to buy fairly soon...

Default Re: So DW brings out the new 9000 pedal...

I have a question for you DW guys - I'm not too up on them. How long was the last 9000 pedal out, or in production?
I'm wondering if they come out with new stuff at regular intervals, like every 3 or 4 years, or every 5 to 6 years, or whatever. Or is it more often than that. Or do you just never know when they'll throw something new in the ring?

Dre25 - don't know what current pricing is on the new 9000, or even if you'd have to search for something more specific than that.
I was in a store on Friday that had a stack of about 10 of the new doubles, but I didn't ask what the price was.

EDIT: this is the only place that I know for sure has the new pedal: http://www.guitarcenter.com/DW-9000-...20-i2694572.gc
$579.99 (USD)
