You asked for it, and now you’ve got it! DW has release a 9000 series bass drum pedal with an extended foot board. With an extra inch of playing room, the XF series makes techniques such as heel toe a breeze. It also makes life a bit easier for those of us who have, let’s just say “slightly larger” feet. As if having to special order our sneakers from Nike wasn’t bad enough, now we’re stuck with tiny bass pedals, what gives? Well kiss those podiatry problems good bye with DW’s new XF models!
DW 9000 Series Extended Footboard Double Pedal (2013 Model)
These slightly larger 9000’s feature the same incredibly smooth, gravity-defying playability that you’ve come to know and love, but with a slightly larger footboard. This pedal 9000's Floating Rotor is not permanently affixed on a conventional drive shaft but is mounted on an free-floating drive shaft using friction-reducing ball bearings. In addition, the patented Rotor can be infinitely adjusted using the Infinite Torque Adjustment for a variety of positions from centre (Turbo-style) to eccentric (Accelerator-style) - achieving the desired balance of power and precision in any playing situation. Furthermore, by moving the location of the Floating Spring from the end of the hex shaft to the centre of the pedal, the vertical alignment of the moving parts is maintained and the indirect transfer and loss of energy is virtually eliminated- further optimizing the pedal's speed and power and precision.
