This pedal I fell immediately under the foot, from the outset, I felt at ease, as with IRON COBRA TAMA. And after you tweak the settings (Very simple and effective), the game is fast, accurate and noise-free (except oblivion - 5 ball bearings).
Really good pedal, well built, with its practice of clamping the fixation on the right side, everything is well thought out and all seems ready to face tough time or the savagery of a great big hitter ...
Personal opinion, investing in the 9000 series does not seem to me essential the 5000 is already a significant investment and value for money seems to me correct in terms of competition.
This excellent pedal (If appropriate) comes with a gig bag with a zip closing.
