I've had my DW5000 double pedal for 8 years and it's still holding up strong. I've replaced the springs and it was like new

Played Speed Kings back in the 80's, have been using Iron Cobra's without issues since 96. Have gigged them and couldn't be more pleased. Set up and take down without issue. One set for gigging, one set on the kit in the studio.

Exclamation Re: Best Bass drum pedal Poll


I believe the answer to this question lays entirely on the playing style of the drummer. I presently have an Iron Cobra Double, Axis Longboard and DW9000. Although I on occasion, I my choose to utilize one or the other, most of my C&W or Blues set-ups favor the 9000, as double-beats or nuances come easier, for me. Sure I've replaced a couple of boards, but survived. On Rock sets usually take the Double IC. Although a really good pedal, my 2+-year old Axis may last me till I die, as I've succumbed to carrying it, as just a back-up. I have an impressive pile of Speed-kings that need to-be melted down someday.

Oh no, don't melt the speed kings! Those are the best old pedals ever manufactured.

There was a time when I was touring that I was much much faster with dual speed kings than I have ever been on any double pedal I have owned or used.

Speed kings were pretty good. Today I would stick with the DW 9000. One on each bass.

While my son still love's the 9002.

Just a matter of prefference.
