Contestant number one is the DW 9000. Drum Workshop produce some of the finest woodwork and metalwork around and the DW 9000 is a double chain double pedal that presents a shining example of their expert craftsmanship. It is so well designed it features several separately patented parts. Most notably the adoption of a floating rotor rather than a fixed one which allows it to spin smoothly around the driveshaft.
The second product we are looking at in this head-to-head review is the Pearl P2052C Eliminator. This again is arguably one of the best selling double bass pedals on the current market. The price tag is relatively low in terms of double bass pedals for the money but it offers some unbelievably advanced technology and craftsmanship. It is a dual chain driven double pedal with Pearls patented Click-Lock, which is part of the eliminator Redline series which means the boards are coated on the surface for extra grip ~It features the unbelievable NiNja skateboard industry bearings which were dubbed “so good we sent them into space.” It has high end 4-sided quad control beaters for increased options on your playing. It has interchangeable cams to also adjust the feel. The spring suspension swings freely and they are unbelievably smooth action and quiet with their universal joints.
In an effort to maintain optimal alignment they also chose to place the tension springs inside the frame rather on the end of the driveshaft.
