both are great pedals, I've played a dw 5002 AD chain dirve for 7 years and the only problem I had was I had to replace the hinge on the master side. It wasn't the delta hinge that is offered now and I played over 500 shows on that pedal. I also had a Pearl Eliminator and it just didn't have the "feel" I was looking for but it did have great response. Pedals are an investment just like drums and I purchased a dw 9000 AD Titanium double pedal and all I can't begin to tell you how awesome this pedal is. This pedal is limited to 500 in production and this price tag is pretty high but well worth the money. DW is now offering the 9000 with the same design but not in a titanium version which should reduce the price. If you're not familiar with this pedal please do yourself a huge priveledge and check it out before you spend your hard earn $ on anything else!

have you tried out the new 9000 or should the fact that there not made of titanium not really change the feel of the pedal.

no I haven't had the oppotunity to try out the non titanium version of the 9000 model, but from the new design I would assume that this pedal will also handle with the same characteristics of it's titanium version.

I'm so serious, I cannot say enough about how great the 9000 feels and responds. If the new 9000 is anything comparable to the titanium version it's going to dominate the pedal maket.

Not with a price of over $200.00 for a single pedal.

sometime's you do actually get what you pay for. Like I said it's an investment just like the kit. Think of what you've spent on hi hats, cases, mics, etc... This is QUALITY equipment.

I just looked over the dwdrums.com site, it had been about a month since I was last there. The new 9000 looks like they combined the best features from the limited titaniums with 5000 parts as well to make a high end pedal that will be in more drummers $$ range. Granted it's a lot but not as drastic as the all titaniums. When did the 7000's change from the silver cast parts to black? They look just like 5000's now except for the aluminum hex rod and red hinge on the heel plate.

In regards to the new DW 9000 (NON Titanium) pedal being available for sale now:

No its not, i just spoke to DW and they have not shipped ANY of the new 9000 pedals. They said the first ones will be shipped mid March. The suggested Retail price for a single is going to be $349.00. So figure it will sell around $199.00 or so in most stores.

My local Guitar Center said they are taking advance orders on them. No mention of exact price though.
