    Default Upgraded my bass pedals!

    So my friend who owns the studio we rehearse and record in made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Although I wasn't in the market for another double bass pedal, I couldn't pass up the chance to upgrade from Iron Cobra Jrs to DW5000s for the price he offered. I haven't had much time to play with them yet, but I love the build quality and ease of adjustment. My double bass playing skills are no where near deserving of such a nice piece of gear but this will inspire me to improve them.

    Well, I had Iron Cobra Jrs, so it's definitely an upgrade for me. DW5000s and the top of the line Iron Cobras are more or less on the same level I would think.

    the DWs are certainly an up grade from the Jrs. Congrats. I played the Jrs. for 7 yr. and up graded to the Speed Cobras. I'm sure you'll like the 9000s.

    Yes, both are great pedals and you can't go wrong either way. I've used the 5000s since the 80s with no complaints. My current 5000 single pedal has seen close to 1000 gigs without any issues whatsoever ...

    I just sold my IC Jrs on eBay. With the shipping included, I came out a bit under what I paid for them, but I got several years use out of them and I can't justify keeping 2 double pedals. Gotta try to keep the growing gear under control.
