It took a while, but I found the best pedal on the planet. I replaced my Tama Camco re-issue with first the DW 9000, which was too much pedal for me. I then got the Pearl Eliminator. Nice pedal, but it just didn't do it for me. I then ordered the DW 5000 AD3 pedal, and right away I knew it was simply the best pedal on Earth. You can't go wrong with this one, as it is built like a tank but plays like an old Ghost pedal or Speed King, which is to say, whatever you can imagine, it will play. You no longer have to 'think' about playing the bass drum or the notes you want to play, because with the DW 5000 they just come out naturally. From strong funk/rock thumps to light feathering notes, it covers them all. Well worth every penny, especially the single version. The double version is pricey, but I hope to one day graduate to it and buy the add on slave unit, which is also pricey, but must be worth it. Give it a try; I think you'll love it too.

I bought this pedal 3 years ago, and within a few months of getting it, i started noticing a few quirks. 1.) The Tension rods holding the beater holder and chain in place fall off constantly, and i have lost the two for the chain because of it. When the tension rods become loose, the pedal looses all of its smoothness. My friend has the iron cobra and I have used it over the past several weeks and it is much better. I would not recommend this pedal to anyone. DW is nothing more than a name that drives up prices. Their kits and hardware cost far more that they should. I also own a heavy duty DW throne, and the wing nuts on that always come loose as well. DW is way overrated.

Good Invesment

By Akinfemi Akinwale

from Los Angeles

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

Great quality pedal. It does not take alot to adjust it. Its almost ready to go out the bag. It's a littel pricey, and the heavy beater may not suit everyone. But I am very pleased with its performance. The 5000 is a top-rank workhorse pedal.
Gives you what you need...plain and simple..no overkill
Rock Solid. Engineered to perform OVER TIME....not ment to be a star today and a dud tomorrow
It is kind of high in price in the immediate sense...but you only need one and you're set for a while..and a good while at that

AWESOME!

By DWDrummer2010

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

This pedal is awesome! It took about 10 minutes to set it up perfectly, then it plays so smooth and quick. I recommend switching the heavy stock beater with a DW HardCore beater.

B.E.A.UTIFUL

By barkerman1214

from Blairsville, Ga

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

i got this a set i bought from a friend a couple of years ago. ive beat it like a red headed step child and ive never had to do one thing to it other than take it off when im moving my set. its perfect in everyway. I love DW everything. Dont buy a pdp pedal cuz its basically the same brand. less than half the quality. DW sometimes is over priced nut amazing. pdp drums are decent knock-offs though. this pedal is perfect.

My 5000

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

I use my single and double 5000 series pedal with my pdp x7 series drumset, and my goodness does it project some sound in my bassdrum. I have to use mics for everything else.

You Can't Go Wrong

By morecowbell106

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

Great feel, speed, and reliability. This pedal is amazing and worth the money. I'm not saying Iron Cobras are bad, but I think these are just as good or better.

Go with an Iron Cobra

By Shockmount

from Los Angeles

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

I use two of these regularly. One that is brand new and my own and an older (but still the new style one) at my school. In comparison to my Iron Cobra, I would recommend getting an IC. The DW isn't as smooth as the iron cobra and takes a lot of adjustment to get a comfortable feel. Although it is sturdy, everything gets loose over time and causes the pedal to basically not work. The Iron Cobra is a far better pedal AND it costs less.

Amazing Randy

By Amazing Randy

from VERDUNVILLE, WV

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

I own the original and have played the new model. Can't say enough about it. It allows me the speed and agility for the most demanding music and musicians that I have had the privilege to work with. And the new pedal with it's improvments is equally remarkable. I traded in my Gibralter double for the single DW5000 and have no regrets.

Pretty Good

By VicFirth_xdude

from St. Louis MO

Comments about DW 5000AD3 Accelerator Chain-Drive Single Pedal:

I have used a lot of pedals playing drums, trying to figure out what would be the best, well this pedal gave a lot of control and power. The only flaw is that it's a bit too pricey for bargain hunters but really good quality.
