Drum Workshop's popular 5000 Series Delta II single and double bass drum pedals have been upgraded with a 9-position "Elevator" heel platform and a red-anodized, low-mass aluminum hex shaft as well as several other performance-enhancing features. Additional improvements to the legendary pedals include square-ended hex shafts for easier double pedal conversion, toe-stops and beater ball memory locks plus a linkage memory lock on double pedals.
DW's 9-Position "Elevator" heel plate provides a unique method for drummers to achieve a more natural, comfortable and relaxed pedal playing position without sacrificing speed, power or accuracy. By using different combinations of the heel sections that are included with every Delta II, the height of the heel can be adjusted independently of the angle of the footboard- similar to the way players find their favorite hand position and striking angle by raising or lowering their seat. The "Elevator" positions range from normal to extreme and are recommended for achieving a smoother, more effortless technique as well as increased control.
Other standard Delta II features include the Delta Tri-Bearing System (Ball-Bearing Hinge, Hex-Shaft and Rocker), dual chain Chain Drive Chain & Sprocket drive system (Accelerator and Turbo models), oversized footboard with "Force Maximizer" adjustable weight system, dual/side adjusting hoop clamp, ribbed aluminum pedal plate, drumkey and holder clip, slotted stroke adjustment, locking spring tension adjustment, 101 two-way beater, non-skid spurs and Velcro.
