OVERVIEW

A direct-drive pedal for the masses.

Designed as the flagship pedal of the PDP line, the PDP Concept Direct Drive pedals are fast, smooth and unlike any PDP pedal before it. The most obvious departure is its distinct look. Direct-drive pedals offers increased sensitivity through a single piece of linkage between the footboard and the cam. This makes a drummer's foot stroke more controlled, fluid and attuned to their instincts.

With an extended length XF brushed aluminum footboard and low-mass cam, this pedal is a solid performer that rivals much more expensive offerings. A DW-style spring rocker adjustment, lightweight aluminum base plate and the DWSM101Air beater are all standard on both single and double models.

FEATURES
Cobalt low-mass cam
Retractable spurs
XF brushed aluminum footboard
DW spring rocker adjustment
Lightweight aluminum baseplate(s)
DWSM101Air adustable beater

A hardware series that honors its DW lineage. Order today!

      Comments about PDP by DW Concept Direct Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

      I've owned many kick pedals over the years (50+ years of experience, from prog rock to jazz). My first direct drive pedal was a Ghost. I'm not sure why direct drive feels better to me, but I doubt it's the claim that chains create slack. I've owned several pedals with multiple adjustments. Constantly tweaking and never satisfied, but that could be my own fault. Then I got a Trick Long Board. Loved the simplicity and the smooth feel and easy 32nd note double strokes, my best pedal ever. BUT it was stolen. I decided I wasn't going to spend that much for a pedal again and I found the PDP Concept Direct Drive. Based n a DW Pedal without all the adjustment possibilities, Pre Tweaked as it were. I love this pedal. Simple, Smooth, Easily adjusted, A pretty long pedal board but WITH a heal plate (I missed the heal plate on the Trick Long Board).Double stroked 32nd notes at 120 rpm, no problem. The pedal if fast, easy to control dynamics and high quality. For the price and quality this pedal can't be beat!

        Comments about PDP by DW Concept Direct Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

        I've always wanted to get into direct drive pedals, and at this price point this was a no brainer. I was skeptical at first, but after playing this pedal for a few weeks this has become my main pedal. (coming from a long time Speed Cobra user). I like the long foot board, and the feel of a direct drive compared to a chain drive was satisfying. The construction is solid and does not feel cheap at all. There're not a lot of options for adjustment settings. I had to make a few minor adjustments to the beater distance, but once I dailed it in I fell in love with it.

          Very well made pedal. Well designed and sturdy. My first direct drive after ages of chain. This was an open box M/F deal. No problems found. Very happy with this pedal

              Very smooth pedal! Stock beater is a little on the heavy side. Crank the spring tension and you'll be fine. I'll most likely get a lighter beater for it. I can't imagine a more expensive version of this pedal being much better! Just get it, you'll really like it!

                  • If you like the drive,it's awesome. Not for me.

                  Comments about PDP by DW Concept Direct Drive Single Bass Drum Pedal:

                  I just wanted to try the direct drive. Newer isn't always better. I guess the slack of a chain drive works better for me, but I have health problems that make the bass drum mostly ankle work for me. I've even stopped using the double pedal. That's why I bought a single pedal. My dw4000 needs springs. I don't suppose you'd trade mine for a chain drive pedal?

                    I recently bought a new PDP drum set for our church with also new byzance extra dry cymbals. I wanted to get rid of the existing drum pedal and get a better one that would allow me to play better and man I have to say it, this is an amazing pedal. The kick drum sounds amazing, the pedal delivers the sound I like and it functions perfectly as I want. Highly recommend to any drummer!
