Industry-standard bass drum pedals have always been a DW mainstay and the Machined Direct Drive Pedal from DW is no exception. Packed with a slew of drummer-friendly features, the MDD is machined from solid aluminum and is the result of years of painstaking design and engineering. The ultimate goal is to offer players unprecedented feel and versatility, whether they currently play a direct drive pedal, or not.
In doing so, an Optimized Fulcrum Geometry linkage was developed to offer smooth, effortless action with just the right amount of beater throw. Other standard features include: a newly-designed, solid aluminum, perforated footboard with a contoured heel plate, interlocking Delta hinge, TBT (Threaded Bearing Technology) in the drive linkage and cam, Tri-Pivot swivel toe clamp, solid aluminum direct-drive cam with pivot adjustment, Vert (Vertical Sliding Spring Adjustment), Control beater with adjustable weight/impact, and more.
In addition, the double pedal offers a lightweight single-post auxiliary pedal and a patented AB (All-Bearing) zero-backlash universal joint.
