Machining is so important to DW Drums’ latest pedal design that machining is part of the product’s name. In this video, Rich Sikra, the company’s vice president of manufacturing, discusses the production of the Machined Direct Drive pedal, the advantages of having that production in-house, and how the company has saved cost by using extrusions instead of machining from rectangular blanks.

I visited DW Drums as part of a film shoot for a forthcoming Edge Factor documentary on music-industry manufacturing. Find updates about the progress of this project at edgefactor.com
