    I didn't like it. Too high pitched and trashy/washy. Returned it.

    New Speed King Quick Review

    The new ones come with 2 small slotted rubber spacers that will slip on the hoop if it's too shallow. These will move the pedal back a little so the linkage will not touch the head. Reply

    What drum hardware have you been surprised by?

    I have always disliked the 9000 DW snare stands. They are heavy, bulky, and inelegantly designed. If not set up carefully they will tip over! Compare this to the Yamaha ball mount snare stand. The only one I ever use now.
