DW 9002 kicks & 9500 HH stand.. (the finest HH stand on the planet in my opinion....) (the 9002's aren't chump-change either).

I tried the Demon's out and thought the were even lighter than my axis' which is a shame... plus they're more expensive which is a total deal breaker...

very easy to access the adjustments to dial in compared to the axis.

i was darryls "R&D department for a time (he still doesnt know i switched so please dont snitch me out).
we had developed a longer footboard that ws 2" longer and for the long board , it moved the sweetspot back 2" for heel toe playing ,that was pretty cool , also we shaved a corner off the column because it tends to get in the way a bit when wearing shoes (of course that all depends on how a person plays).

we also had ideas about placing the set screws and using either one size for all and switching to the square screws for more user friendly adjustments.

even had ideas about making the beaters easier to adjust and also changed the design of the clamp to the bass drum.

all great ideas that will never go to market because its not cost effective
they would have to make too many changes to the whole system of the machine shop.
it was great working with darryl,a really really super cool guy.
don't tell him because i still get velcro from him for my pedals as the ones trick supplies really sux.
you think i feel guilty....hell yeah, every time i go to the factory and ask for more velcro.
by the way i can't stand my trick pedals bass drum clamp.

Yep... I think even the old speed kings were direct... Anyways, I started with a SK, then on to CAMCO, which DW aquired and created the 5000 series which I used until about 3 years ago when I upped to the 9000's. I just like the feel of them.. silky smooth.

I use a DW 9002 double and a 9000 single. I use them straight out of the box without any tweaking and I love the feel. I do change out the stock beater for a Puresound Speedball Felt. LOVE that beater!!

I am more of a groove guy and I play a lot of heel-down so the speed of the DW is just fine for me.

The 9000's are fast as well.. I use a lot of triplet or 32nd note accent/synchopation type stuff.. loud or quiet. These things just work. No noise, no binding, infinitely adjustable..

I get happy feets!
