DW 5000 Single Pedal (DW5000AH4)
The Bass Drum pedal that launched Drum Workshop onto the World’s stage, the DW 5000 single pedal has come a long way from its origins inside the collapsed Camco drum company of the 1970s. Some say, the DW 5000 is the most natural feeling drum pedal ever invented and despite the advanced pedal technology found in other DW pedals, many refuse to leave their red base-plates for silver.

Known as an industry standard in drum pedals, DW have made many subtle changes to the 5000 series over the years, resulting in better performing pedals whilst retaining their original, unique identity. The DW 5000 single pedal 5000AH4 model is the classic Accelerator pedal design, no doubt reissued due to high demand for the simple design. Many drummers thought the mandatory introduction of the wider footplate and dual-chain sprocket on the 5000 series was a step too far away and have welcomed the return of the classic DW pedal.
At this point in pedal design, you either stop here and realise it doesn’t really get any better, or start questioning whether it’s the pedal or your foot technique at fault, because we can guarantee, a DW 5000 is all the pedal you should ever need.
The pedal that launched the DW company into the hearts and minds of drummers Worldwide. DW 5000 remains the flagship pedal of the Drum Workshop company, earning its truly legendary status in the history of pedal design. With its iconic red footplate and Accelerator or Turbo Cams, this pedal remains a timeless reminder to what all drum manufacturers at some point have tried to copy into their pedal designs since the 1980s.
There will only ever be, one DW 5000 single pedal.
