Comments about Pearl P3002D Eliminator Demon Drive Double Bass Pedal (Available in Lefty and Righty Setups):

I have used these pedals for practicing, and band practice once or twice a week. We play mostly death metal, which has very demanding double bass patterns, and sometimes blistering 16th notes. This pedal was definitely hyped up way too much. Pearl said this was going to be the fastest, smoothest, most versatile pedal you have ever played. They are pretty fast and smooth. However, fast is about all you can do. Playing slow single strokes is impossible to do with out stomping on the pedals. You can adjust the pedals a lot. Then comes the problems. After a week of playing these pedals (which felt amazing during that time) they started to produce a clicking sound in the area of the bearings for the slave pedal. This has progressed since a week after I had them and now, almost a year later. There is play in almost everything. The hinge, the connection between the footboard and the direct link, and the entire shaft has play in it, and causes the slave pedal to have latency. The beaters they give your are pretty bad, after playing them for about 20 minutes, the side you are playing on will become flat, causing a complete change in sound, and destroying the feel of the pedal. The pedal will not get enough bounce, so you wont really be able to do much with them. I have proceeded to rotate the beaters when this happens, but now my beaters are shaped like octagons. More recently, a clanking sound has developed when the slave pedal's beater hits the bass drum. I have narrowed it down to the connection between the top of the direct link and the top of the pedal. The overall construction is very poor. When the pedals are in use, the post that come up on both sides of the main pedal, and on the right side of the slave pedal move back and forth, without the base moving with it. Overall I am very disappointed with these pedals. They were even more expensive when I bought them. But in the price range, I would either buy trick percussion or axis percussion pedals, or even a cheaper chain driven pedal such as DW 9000s, Iron Cobras, or even Pearl's Powershifter Eliminator's, which I had before these and were much better.

Comments about Pearl P3002D Eliminator Demon Drive Double Bass Pedal (Available in Lefty and Righty Setups):

I used the double config. at a guitar center in NC. I had the drum techs staring and drooling over my double strokes. It was connected to a bass drum practice pad so I was not able to try it on an actual set. I think the feel is great, perhaps more stiff than most pedals but very fluid. Singles were harder than doubles on these pedals. The spring tension is the cause of that but I don't know how easy it would be to find a balance with this pedal. Recommended for metal drummers but definitely not limited to. This pedal feels like it cheats. As for me, I think I'll stick with Shifter Eliminators.
