Featuring a host of refinements and upgrades, the legendary line of 5000 Series Bass Drum Pedals features a choice of Accelerator (offset), Turbo (center) Double Chain and Sprocket or classic Nylon Strap drive systems. Along with aluminum hex shafts, pedal plates and linkages, dual side adjusting hoop clamp, 101 two-way beater and built in spurs, these pedals can be customized to fit the needs of any player.
DW's patented Ball-Bearing hinge is the state-of-the-art in hinge design and the beginning of our Delta Tri-Bearing System. The ball bearings virtually eliminate friction while keeping perfect alignment so you can feel the footboard working with you.The second element of the Delta Tri-Bearing system is the Spring Rocker. Bearings are also employed at the either side of the post casting to reduce friction.
The Accelerator (A) Drive System offers an eccentric motion that creates an indirect relationship between the sprocket and the footboard, increasing the velocity of the pedal by shortening the length of the stroke. It is recommended for situations that require increased speed and sensitivity. The Turbo (T) Concentric Drive System maintains a direct relationship between the sprocket and the footboard to provide a solid, powerful, consistent feel and response.The flexibility and relaxed feel of DW's Nylon Strap (N) Drive System offers a classic balance and fast, fluid, floating response that continues to make it the favorite of many traditional and contemporary drummers.5000 Series Double Pedals come in a molded, hard shell case. 5000 Series Single Pedals include a soft carrying bag.
