The Accelerator™ (AD4) 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.
DW's 5002AD4 double kick pedal gives you all the features that made the 5000 Series legendary among drummers worldwide. The 5002AD4's Accelerator Drive system creates an indirect relationship between the sprocket and footboard for maximum velocity and excellent sensitivity. You'll love the improvements DW designed into the 5002AD4, such as the innovative rubberized Tri-pivot Toe Clamp, a textured rubber grip pad on the base plate, and the Dual-Bearing Spring Rocker that serves up silky smoothness. On top of these great enhancements, the DW 5002AD4 can be customized to your personal playing style!
DW re-engineered the pedal that established our reputation for innovation and quality. Because innovation is part of our DNA we thought it was time for some major improvements. Most notably, the toe clamp. The 5000 needed more gripping strength, providing a stronger connection between the drummer and kick drum. So, we 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 new textured rubber grip pad on the base plate and we think you’ll agree that there’s never been a better system for attaching a pedal to a bass drum. Last, but certainly not least, we wanted to improve on the smoothness and feel of the 5000, if that was even possible. To accomplish this, we added a Dual Bearing Spring Rocker, making the 5000 quicker and more responsive.
