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.

Features
  • Duo-Deck longboard—shortboard to longboard pedal in seconds
  • Two-position beater stroke adjustment
  • Two-position direct link adjustment
  • Ninja bearings

The best pedal ever made!!!!!!!!!!

By 

from League City Texas

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

This pedal is awesome, i was reluctant to buy it a first because of the price tag, but it was worth every penny!!!! I am a gospel drummer and I was use to using a chain drive pedal. I have them all, Iron cobra, eliminator, and 9000. I wanted something different, and boy was this it. This pedal is amazingly fast, and makes doubles, triplets, and 16th notes seem so much easier to push out. Outta of the box its amazing,but once you tweak it, no other pedal stands a chance.

LOOK OUT IRON COBRA NEW PEDAL IN TOWN!

By 

from Souderton, PA

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

This pedal is well worth the money. I push out triplets and quadruplets with proper training and practice with ease on this baby. My foot just glides on the pedal. I was a big fan of the iron cobra but decided I needed to upgrade. This is it... Get this pedal, you will not regret it. Warning: The pedals beater is AWFUL it will DESTROY YOUR HEAD in no time. Get a generic Pearl beater or you wil tear your head in good time. YOU WERE WARNED!

A Precise Device

By 

from Elkhart, Indiana

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

I've been playing the Demon Drive for over four months now. After a long hiatus from drumming, I decided to upgrade my single longboard pedal, with my final choice coming down to the DW 9000 and Demon Drive. In the store, I went back and forth between the two and initially thought the DD felt almost too smooth and lacked the "heft" of the DW. However, after making a few basic adjustments, it felt a bit more solid. The ease with which you could adjust the pedal was readily obvious, as was the precision of the pedal's design and solid construction. Adjustments were quick and intuitive, with sufficient markings on the pedal to see the relative adjustments. Build quality was top notch. Having said all that, I still wasn't totally convinced, but with GC's return policy, I thought I'd give it a go. Once I got it installed on my 24" bass, it only took a little while to get the pedal really dialed in. Wow!!! The pedal was incredibly fast, smooth and very responsive. No matter what I've played, the DD has been as effortless as I could hope for and a joy to play for extended periods. It's such a great pedal I'm considering converting it from a single to a double with the DD conversion kit, which is a nice option to have available. Highly recommended. Thanks also goes to the local Guitar Center's drum guy, Mike Youngblood, who's offered great advice and customer service every time I've stopped in.

Great Pedal

By 

from Bethlehem, GA

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

I started out with a Pearl entry level chain drive and went from it to trying many different others. I spoke with Eilliot my guy at my local Guitar Center and he recommended the Demon. I was first taken back by the price but after some comparison and word of mouth I wipped out the wallet. NO REGRETS!!!!!!! It is amazing. Very simple to setup for my taste. Very fast, very fast, very fast. Did I mention very fast. It is easy to do doubles and tripples with out strain. The feel is great and smooth. The quality is unbelievable. I cannot say enough about this pedal. I am thinking of getting the add on unit for double bass.

Need to try it to understand...

By 

from VA Beach, VA

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

This pedal is amazing. The Zero Latency makes it as fast as your foot can go. There is no delay from when your foot releases to when the pedal retracts. It's incredible. You really need to try this pedal to understand how smooth it is. The direct drive is sweet and out of the box it plays amazingly. Definitely a great buy.

Beautiful. Heavy. Perfect. Evil.

By 

from Morgan Hill, California

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

I've always been a Pearl guy. I took a 10 year hiatus from playing and recently bought a brand new kit. Since I pride myself on having a heavy kick foot, I decided to spoil myself a bit and get the best pedal that Pearl had to offer. There are no words. The spring action is extremely smooth, easily adjustable and I'm looking forward to experimenting with it more. With my style of playing, guitarists are running out of the studio for fear of being punched in the face by the sound that this pedal gives off. It truly is the spawn of Satan. Definitely worth buy, and it's true in this case that you get what you pay for.

Impressed

By 

from Goodyear, AZ

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

So i sat down at my local guitar center and decided to mess with pedals because i was tired with my current pedal. i played an iron cobra, DW 9000 & 5000 and I was actually blown away by the Demon Drive pedal, quite frankly i am disappointed that the DD was superior to DW's 9000 and 5000. Although i'm unsure how it will compete against Trick and Axis pedals. this is definitely the pedal to get when it comes to buying the pedal at the store. (you have to special order trick and axis) and by the way this is coming from someone who cannot stand Pearl.

Amazing, however...

By 

from Detroit, Michigan

Comments about Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive Pedal:

These are by far the best pedals I have ever played on. They are fully adjustable for any style of playing, and I would recommend them to drummers of any style of music. The only thing that sucks is the system that clamps onto your hoops tends to fall apart very easily... There are rubber grips that tend to come off, I have one left on one of my pedals and nothing on the other...
