Pearl P-3000D Eliminator Demon Drum Pedal

Your bass drum pedal is arguably your most important piece of drum hardware. Performance, stability, versatility and durability are absolutely critical, and the new Pearl Eliminator Demon drum pedals deliver in all areas.

The Pearl P3000D Eliminator Demon drum pedal lets you make adjustments to the direct link, beater stroke and footboard to customize the foot pedal creating a perfect fit for your playing style.

The two position direct link on the P-3000D adjusts for a choice of light or heavy feel. This creates the most seamless link between your musical ideas and their execution on a bass drum.

The P3000D features Ninja Bearings, which were originally designed by skateboarding engineers. These bearings feature micro-polished steel balls for amazing speed and incredible smoothness.

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 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.
