Drum Workshop 5000AD4 Delta 4 Accelerator Pedal

DW's 5000 series pedals are popular among a wide range of players. This release includes a redesigned toe clamp and more gripping strength.
Drum Workshop has reengineered the pedal that established their reputation for innovation and quality by introducing the Drum Workshop 5000AD4 Delta 4 Accelerator Pedal. Because innovation is part of DW's DNA they thought it was time for some major improvements. Most notably, the toe clamp needed more gripping strength, to provide a stronger connection between the drummer and kick drum. So, DW developed the Tri-Pivot Toe Clamp. Three independent 360-degree, rotating rubber pads firmly pinch almost any diameter and thickness bass drum counter hoop from the top and the bottom, with zero slippage. Add to that a textured rubber grip pad on the base plate and DW thinks you'll agree that there's never been a better system for attaching a pedal to a bass drum. Last, but certainly not least, DW wanted to improve on the smoothness and feel of the 5000. To accomplish this, DW added a Dual Bearing Spring Rocker, making the 5000 quicker and more responsive.

Featuring a host of refinements and upgrades, the legendary line of 5000 Series bass drum pedals still features a choice of drive systems, aluminum hex shafts, pedal plates and linkages, 101 two-way beater, and built in spurs. These pedals can be customized to fit the needs of any player.

The Accelerator 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 read more is recommended for situations that require increased speed and sensitivity.

The Turbo concentric drive system maintains a direct relationship between the sprocket and the footboard to provide a solid, powerful, consistent feel and response.

"Overall satisfaction"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I absolutely lovey new pedal! I finally have adjusted to the tension that I like playing with. It gives me everything I was looking for and then some. The only I would say that I wasn't pleased with was the fact that it didn't come with the gig bag. I thought all DW pedals did.
Musical Background:
I've been playing drums for about 25 years now. Since I was 2! I absolutely love. I don't play professionally yet.
Musical Style:
I can play just about any style. I was taught to be versatile.
