Heavenly feel. Wickedly fast.
The Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive is a bass drum pedal that was engineered to create the most seamless link between the player's musical ideas and their execution on a bass drum. Whether seeking to deliver lightning-fast blast beats or deep, rock-solid grooves, this Pearl pedal offers the adjustability to maximize your playing in any style.
Play a Demon Drive and the first thing you'll notice is its smoothness and speed that comes through the use of ultra-precise hardware components. Self-aligning spherical bearings are used to insure the footboard and Direct Link Drive are always in perfect alignment, and special super high speed Ninja bearings on the axles all work in perfect sync to create one of the smoothest and fastest kick drum pedals on the planet.
The most unique feature of the Demon Drive pedal is Pearl's exclusive Duo-Deck, the world's first convertible footboard. Through a simple adjustment, the Pearl Demon Drive pedal can be adjusted from a traditional shortboard to a longboard pedal in seconds, offering a slightly lighter, quicker feel that is the preferred setup when speed is a necessity.
This drum pedal includes the world's first two-position Beater Stroke Adjustment and two-position Direct Link Adjustment. Both adjustable features allow the player to create a slightly lighter or heavier feel of the pedal depending on their preferred setting. Adjusting the Duo-Deck in combination with the Beater Holder and Direct Link Adjustments yields 8 possible Pedal Configurations, allowing the player to truly create their ideal drum pedal configuration.
More key features include a Click Lock Spring tension system that prevents the tension knob from loosening. An Adjustable Traction Plate, which has aluminum traction dots that are fully adjustable to vary the amount of slip or grip for your playing. Its footboard height adjustment capability enables drummers to loosen and rotate the footboard to desired height. And finally the Pearl Eliminator Demon comes standard with a road case to protect it from the wear and tear of travel.

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:
I've played for over 50 years. Back in the day, my best pedal was also a Pearl and I used it for over 25 years until the leather strap broke! I fixed it, but after that I looked at everything from bargain type double pedals to the coveted dw line, and even bought one, but returned it and continued the upward trend to this pedal. It is so adjustable and so extremely well made that there is really nothing else. I've started to take it for granted, but that's because it's so adjustable that it's as if it was custom made for me. I imagine any player would feel the same. Also, for me, the direct drive is the way to go for immmediate response and a smooth, connected feel and there's not many available (chain chain chains!) The only drawback is the price, but it's such high quality that you should look past that and once you own it, that's it! However, I'll have to save a long time for the double pedal, but nothing else will do anymore!
