I would recommend this pedal to anyone!


My new DW 5000 kick pedal is really sweet. The staff at Sam Ash was very helpful. Thanks!



Best Working horse pedal around!


This is DW best working horse pedal, very smooth and durable. Great for Live shows or Studio Work. This pedal has a great value for price. I would recommend this for any drummer, any level, but it is mostly for the Pro's. It has a rubber bottom, so it doesn't have any slippage. This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis, IN, store #57.

A Classic Gets Better


The DW AD4 has a new Tri-Pivot toe clamp with 3 self adjusting rubber coated pads. And a Dual- Spring Rocker. Otherwise this is the same DW500 AD4 you've known & loved for years.

Legendary bass drum pedal


DW knows what they're doing when it comes to drums and drum accessories and this pedal is no different. They've been steadily improving their design and tweaking things here and there to make sure that their pedals are top of the line. The AD4 has great response and control, and the non slip pad is great for any surface whether a concrete floor in a garage or a carpet in the living room. I'd recommend this for any drummer.

Great improvements


The DW5000 AD4 has some major improvements that make it a must have for many drummers. New Dual Spring Rocker gives the pedal a great response and the new toe clamp allows it to fit on any bass drum with great ease. Sturdy build. No wonder why people love this pedal.

A Bass Drum Pedal Benchmark


The Drum Workshop company has been an icon in bass drum pedal innovation for decades. The latest version of the 5000 series is no slouch. It comes with a versatile two sided beater (felt and plastic) to get two distinct tones from the drums, it also comes standard with their delta ball bearings and dual chain drive system for smooth and reliable operation (which used to be an upcharge from the standard model). Although a departure from the designs of the 60's and 70's version this pedal is still lightweight, rugged, built to last, and most importantly built to suit your needs. If you're looking at a great quality single bass drum pedal the DW 5000 series should be on your short list. DW offers many ways to fine tune this pedal to your exacting needs, for example they sell different sized heel plates so you can customize the pedal to your playing style. I could go on forever but the best advice I can give you is to try one out if you can.

Excellent for the price


I've spent a lot of time testing this pedal and I have to say that for the price, it is one of the best out there. The response is incredible, offering a beautifully smooth glide and great power. I personally love pedals that don't require a lot of power to get a lot of power, and this pedal does exactly that. The offset clamp adjustment is definitely a step in the right direction, offering quick adjustment on the fly. The on-board key holder is a nice touch, especially if you lose drum keys like I do. My only gripe with this pedal would have to be the beater. I think that it's too big for my taste, but something that can be easily fixed. All in all, this is a perfect pedal for someone looking for great quality at a great price.

Great Pedal


DW makes some of the best pedals right along with Tama. the 5000 AD4 has great response and really allows you to play as fast as you like. The feel of this pedal is what sells me on it; it takes barely any effort to play. There are also rubber grips on the pedal that helps my foot not slide while playing fast.

Great single kick pedal!


This is one of the most standard kick pedals on the market. Comfortable, with a great action, and reliable. An industry standard.






First off, I am not a drummer. However, I can really tell a difference between the 5000 and the upgraded 5000AD4. The feel and recoil of the pedal is outstanding and the velocity from the board is greater as well with less effort. The clamp is nice with the adjustable pads and it feels like there is less slip due to the rubber padding on the bottom which helps on any playing surface.
