    Default dw 9002 pedal addition(s)

    Saw a YouTube video suggesting that simply changing out the connecting factory provided shaft on the 9002 with a different shaft could yield better results. So I tried an eliminator type shaft, and my broken zero-link shaft that I have from my demon drive experience. The difference was eye opening. With the 9002 shaft the slave beater swiveled back and forth about 8 times. With the eliminator shaft it was 12 times and with the zero link shaft it was 20 times !! Amazing. If the zero link bar was more durable and useable I would use it. The guy in the video used a Trick Shaft. What was interesting is when I had the zero link shaft on and put both beaters up against the drum head and released them, they both swiveled back and forth in unison unlike I have ever seen before. This is a game changer. It should be noted that my dw beaters are 6" from the drum head.

    Yep. The Trick driveshaft is a game changer. Worth the money for sure.

    I use a DW 9002 slave pedal for a satellite bass drum and haven't felt much of a difference. I think this because the drive shaft is straight. When the pedal is angled, it kills the rebound motion.

    Just wish my zero link shaft was not busted.
