I've owned the DW 3000 double pedal for a couple years now and after the first several months it already started to break down on me. I play with a heavy foot, but I am by no means a furious monster hitter. To me the weakest part of this pedal is the hinge that connects the pedal to the base. I've snapped that thing off on more than one occasion. I looked online and found other drummers were experiencing the same difficulty. This is because DW has cut corners to bring their gold standard pedals into a more affordable price range for the masses. I would say this is a terrific pedal if you have a light foot or if you play heel down. But my advice in the end is that if you're a serious drummer you'll end up replacing this pedal eventually anyway.
Save up the money for a DW 5000, Tama Speed Cobra or Iron Cobra, Pearl Eliminator, Mapex Falcon, etc. If money is an issue check out the Tama Iron Cobra 600 series or the Speed Cobra 310. Both of those pedals are in the same price range as the DW 3000 and both are more durable pedals.
