  • A rival to Axis?

    I was happily browsing the DW website when i happened upon this news release:
    http://www.dwdrums.com/pages/nws9000pdl.html

    Looks like a rival to the Axis A2's. Would be interesting to try at any rate. If anyone knows any more info on this pedal then i would be glad if you could post it here!

    Cheers in advance..

    TITANIUM LIMITED EDITION PEDALS

    I saw these today at my local Sam Ash store for $599. They are sweet - light as a feather. I like these and the Axis Long a-2's. The DW set on display was the TITANIUM LIMITED EDITION Double PEDALS - nice but way too much for me.
    Have a Nice Day -

        na... axis has direct drive.
        although dw looks like they have some more machined parts, they still just dont look as kickin as the axis pedals do.

        i have a2 longboards that i use on my acoustics...compared to the dw5002 - the axis pedals make the dw's feel like something id buy at walmart.

          The a2's are indeed high quality and very responsive. The 9000's are quite an improvement over the 5000 series though... both the construction and movement are more solid, a smoother footboard allows for better sliding techniques, and the double chain provides a sound, yet responsive-give that chain-drive fans may appreciate. With the current price, not sure how many fans will be able to appreciate it though.

            For us big-footed, Axis (A-L2) Longboard users out there, there is no substitute or competitor out there right now. For me there is still one big flaw with the DW's, & that is the gaping hinged separation between the heelplate & footboard. I own a DW 5002AD DOUBLE PEDAL COMPLETE WITH FREE CARRY BAG, and I could never get my sliding and/or double bass technique to work smoothly. It was a horribly frustrating experience. If I wanted something different I had to special order new footboards from DW!!

            So instead of spending $100 to change out the plates, I went out and spent over $500 on the Axis pedals (after reading so much praise on this very site!)! I cringed once at the dollar amount and never looked back! I have seen the light! Axis has shown me the way, every Vdrummer should own some version of this wonderful product. DW be damned!!

              I forgot to mention another pleasure of the Axis products: Tweaking!

              Yes, that's right... You'll be astounded by the amount of hours you'll spend setting these pedals to be "just right". Days will go by, seasons will pass & you'll love every minute of it 'cuz when it's set just right... you'll know it, your playing will improve ten-fold & your feet will thank you.

              'Nuff Said!
