I was looking into this as my first pedal. I saw a good deal on ebay $230 for the pedal and a Stagg 6" Black Ice Bell. On Musician's Friend it's $230 for just the pedals. I just want to know is it worth it or should I just get a single chained pedal for $154?

I think it really depends on what type of music you play. Do you want it because it's cool, or will you be playing metal or things like that?

I traded my iron cobra 900's for a set of these new. I have never looked back. Wether or not you use doubles ALL the time is a moot point, it is there when you need it. I would get it there really great. I have been researching the 5002's and I may get those but I havent had any trouble w/ my 7002's the last 3 years and I gig regularly. I put about 20hours a week on them.

I have the 7002 and they are a nice pedal for the money. I would suggest them.

What are WoW spammers doing on a Drum forum?

it dpends on whqt type of music you play. but i had always used a double chain. with a single
chain it feels like you have less control over the pedal and they usally break easier when you
play hard om them.

I have these. I love them to death. They are the first thing to go with me if there is a natural disaster haha. I'm gonna replace the beaters though. They are to heavy and they are slowing me down.

Before I got my 5002's I had 7002's. They were great pedals and took quite a beating. Eventually I just wanted to upgrade but I honestly could have stuck with these pedals and been fine. The DW beaters are a bit heavy. I had a set of Tama beaters that were much lighter than the DW's.

because its a well known fact that drummers are WoW fanatics. but really, why hasn't that post been deleted and that spammer banned?

I had problems with my first single 5000 which had a similar hinge to the present 7000 series. This hinge wore away a bit over the years and after a while started allowing more and more lateral movement. I contacted DW about this and they sent me one of the newer hinges similar the hinges on the present 5000 series for free (not even any shipping charges), even when my pedal was no longer under warranty. The pedal was then good as new again and I eventually traded it for a Yamaha double pedal 15 years later.

I had my 7002 for about four years now and I love it. I'll be upgrading soon but it served me more than well and I have no complaints. Beaters are a little heavy but I like them that way.

the 7000s are great. would definatly recommend them because of the quality and the price that they offer.
