DW 5000AD4 Delta Accelerator Bass Drum Pedal - Product Information
Featuring a host of refinements and upgrades, the legendary line of 5000 Series bass drum pedals features Accelerator™ (offset) double chain and sprocket. Along with aluminum hex shafts, pedal plates and linkages, dual side adjusting hoop clamp, 101 two-way beater and built in spurs, these pedals can be customized to fit the needs of any player.
DW’s Delta Tri-Bearing System employs ball bearings in three critical areas: the hinge, spring rocker and both sides of the post casting. DW’s patented Delta ball-bearing hinge is a state-of-the-art lightweight aluminum design that incorporates ball bearings at both sides. The adjustable spring rocker and post casting also utilize ball bearings for smoother movement at the hex shaft, completing the Tri-Bearing System.
The Accelerator™ (AD4, AX) 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 is recommended for situations that require increased speed and sensitivity.
