    Ok I've been drumming for 6 years now my cousin has this same double kick and it works just fine it has nothing to do with delay it's the muscle in your (non) dominant leg. your dominant leg is always ALWAYS gonna move a lil faster so calm down and keep practicing.

    I got this when I started listening to metal, and it seemed fine to me. I blamed the fact that I couldnt play fast on my inexperience. however, when i visited a friend w/ DW 9000's, i was in shock. These have the tightest spring tension ever, and when u try to loosen it, it looses all tension and the beater doesnt even move till the end of the stroke, and that isnt enough for it to even make contact w/ the bass head! so its super tight or nothing. when i try to keep a steady beat, my left foot is tensioned funny, so i end up playing like swing triplets, and it sounds like " + trip, + trip." I have to really concentrate to make my strokes even. It also has a really annoying nub on the left side of the left pedal that is in the perfect place to make it hard for me to put the pedal right next to the hi hat stand. Its purpose seems to be to stop the pedal from creeping forward (it has no spurs), but the way its designed, it pushes the pedal forward too far and the cam catches on my hi hat leg, so i really need a 2 legged HH stand. Tough beaters to. I wouldn't recomend this even to beginners, because it will teach them to play double bass wrong. go w/ yamaha flying dragons/ iron cobra/ dfp 8110 or something

    DO NOT GET THIS PEDAL!!!!

    By Lukeisawsem

    from Oregon

    See all my reviews

    Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

    I have been drumming for almost seven years now for my own band, and the high school pep band. This pedal is not worth your time or money. If you want a good pedal for a low price get the Pearl p-902 double bass, its very sturdy and has a great feel.
    This pedal has no real features to speek of...
    Within the first week I had horrible problems, almost immediately the pedals got out of synch, and no matter how I adjust the additional pedal wont loosen up or stay at the same level as the main kick does. The shaft is not made of a very durable metal and bends really easy. The lack of extra screws for adjustments is also a very bad feature, because every thing always slips of (the shaft for instance).
    not worth the little amount they want for it.

      Guys, this may very well be the worst pedal ever made. With over a decade of experience, I've seen some pedals in my time. The generic SPD double-pedals are better than this. The action feels like sandpaper. Your money would be better spent on an A/C store at the North pole.

      Black Tabs on the side

      By Anonymous-P83H8

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

      I just thought I would throw in my two cents here. Those black tabs everyone seems to complain about are in case some one is a lefty. That way they can flip the pedals around. Not to say they shouldn't be removed but this could be good info if you are a lefty beginner and wonder what those things are for.. Now you know..(mikes super short show) :)

          Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I bought this pedal for my first double kick pedal. i was pleased with it for about a month then screws and everything started coming apart. now i kept good care of this but it was made soooo horribly. to even keep decent speed i had to WD-40 it everyweek.Plus the stock beaters are way to heavy for a single chain drive. I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO SEPND MORE AND GET A BETTER PEDAL.

          Good for someone just starting to learn double bass. They have a really heavy feel to them. I've played on these for 2 almost, and i tried my friends iron cobras and I felt like it was almost easy to go fast.. These are good for beginners. If you aren't a beginner its a waste of money.

          Ive played on Iron Cobras, Double Demon Drives, and many other high end pedals, and this pedal easily competes with them. Its a great pedal, responsive, somewhat fast, and supplies plenty of power. Overall if your looking for a pedal thats simple to use and is durable, then this low budget pedal is for you.

          Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          These pedals are good if your a beginner with double bassing, but if your more advanced don't get them. The beaters are real clunky and don't let you go very fast. Also, as you get better save up money and get a better double pedal like i said they're great for beginners but not intermediate or advanced.

          It's good for beginners, I guess, but don't stick with it too long. It's honestly probably one of the worst pedals I've ever played because its so heavy, tight, and uneven. I would suggest saving your money up for something better.

          When it comes to keeping a constant double bass beat, it's no good, and it's really hard to push down, you're better off finding a different double kick, trust me the PDP is not that great.

          I had these pedals for 5 years now and they are still holding up pretty well. It's everything a double pedal should be, and in my opinion its the best beginner pedal you can buy because it lasts so long.

          Ive had it for about 3 years now and as a drummer playing for about 8 1/2 years I love my DW pedals. This pedal holds you back and wont let you play fast. very tensioned on the springs and even when you try to adjust it it dosent work. save your money and learn how to play on a nicer pedal,

          this pedal is HORRIBLE! sure, its cheap but its not very good. the beater is too heavy and it flys back and hits my foot and it hurts! i have had these for 2 years, i tried adjusting them, it made no difference. so im saving for the Pearl P2002B Belt-Drive PowerShifter Eliminator Double Bass Drum Pedalepedal.just save up for something better.

          Save your bucks and more importantly your aggravation and get something quality. This thing is terrible, disregard other reviews. I going to get some Axis' or something and just pay up because without a good kick pedal you can't do anything!

          Why is everyone trashing this pedal, its $99.

          Comments about PDP by DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal:

          I bought this pedal a couple of days ago. While its alot harder to compare it to $375 pedal, like it sounds like some of these people are, its a $99 item. I brought it home and set it up and this thing was rocking in no time. If this is your first double pedal I would try this. Of course, as with any cheaper pedal, if its something youre good at it you will have to upgrade. But if youre just learning and dont know if youll like a double bass dont waste your money on a big name, get this one. When I upgrade I will absolutley keep mine for a back up.

            The quality seems good. My problem is the beaters come back too far, and cannot be adjusted closer to the head. The beaters are also too heavy and too hard. Worth the low price for a secondary pedal.
