DWCPMCD & DWCPMCD2 - Machined Chain Drive (MCD) Single and Double Bass Drum Pedals

US Patent No. 9,589,546, US Patent No. 9,472,174 and US Patent No. 9,928,815


Building on the success of the MDD® Machine Direct Drive™ Pedal, the MCD™ is a boutique pedal that shares many of the patented features, industrial design and build-quality of its direct drive cousin. The most striking difference is an adjustable, sprocket-less cam that incorporates a gear shift-style lever. The lever allows players to quickly shift between the most popular chain-drive cam settings and is easily accessible when mounted to a bass drum.


DW Director of R&D, Rich Sikra, explains, "We knew this would be the next logical step when we were introducing the MDD pedals. So many of our artists absolutely love their 9000 pedals, but they're also enamored with the form and function of DW MFG. Plus, we knew that the direct drive feel wasn't for everyone. It's been a really fun and challenging project for the R&D team.”


Other notable features include a racing-style, all-aluminum, perforated footboard with matching, contoured heel plate, Tri-Pivot Swivel Toe-Clamp™ (US Patent Number 9,240,169), V.E.R.T. Vertical Spring Adjustment™ (US Patent Number 9,589,546), 110 Control Beater™ (US Patent Number 8,633,367 B2) and more. A DW MFG carrying case is also included and the recently released MDD Hi-Hat compliments the MCD pedals perfectly.
