Anyone with a DW5000 double?

Did you have trouble getting used to it when you first got it?

I know its a fantastic pedal, but I'm having trouble "clicking" with it. I'm using it as 2 singles (beater slot on both sides)

Nah, I loved mine when I first got them but then I noticed that the foot plate was a little small for my feet. The same with the Iron Cobra. Those were my only problems with the pedals hence why I use a Speed Cobra and Pearl Eliminator now.

Have you played double bass before? Every pedal has a different feel to it so it's just a matter of getting used to it. It may be a great pedal, but it might not be the right pedal for you.

I had a Gibraltar Avenger 6611.

After playing around with the DW I finally understand it. It is a very unforgiving pedal. Because the action is a lot faster, it punishes imperfection. Does that make sense?

I'm finally starting to get the feel of it down. I need to adapt to it.

I love my DW5000 - though it also took me some time to get use to it. I just played around with the settings until I found what was comfortable.

I didn't care for the action, i thought it was too stiff. It's an incredibly well built pedal though.

The one time I played one I thought it was a great piece of kit, it makes sense needing to adapt because of the different ways high end pedals are designed.

I played with beater arm length and weight to get them to feel the same.
