DW Drums announced the availability of the new XF (Extended Footboard) option across the entire range of award-winning DW Manufacturing (MFG) pedals and hi-hat stands.
These exclusive pedals, which are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum in California, are offered in both single and double pedal models in two distinct drive systems; Machined Direct Drive™ (MDD) and Machined Chain Drive™ (MCD). Matching hi-hats stands are also available in 2 and 3-leg options.
A one inch longer XF footboard delivers additional throw and power. The extra surface is also perfect for players that use a sliding technique on pedals.
DW Vice President of Marketing, Scott Donnell, comments, “XF footboards have become very popular in recent years. Artists tell us they love the feel of a longer footboard for many styles of modern music. And we’ve already offered it on our mainstay 5000 and 9000 lines—this was the next logical progression. We’ve even found a way for those that already have MFG pedals to make a simple upgrade.”
The overall size of the new XF MFG pedal base plate remains the same as the standard model. Both the footboard and heel can be retrofitted to existing MFG pedals and hi-hats stands via the easy to fit XF conversion kit, consisting of a preassembled XF footboard, interlocking Delta Ball-Bearing Hinge™ and Mini Contour Heel Plate™.
