Built for the Long Haul

The best drum hardware is built to last. As a drummer, you'll change heads regularly, and you may even swap shells from time to time as your skill improves and your tastes change, but a good set of hardware can stick with you through several kits. That goes for the kick pedal too. You need a pedal that can stand up to your toughest grooves, yet has the flexibility to grow with you as your drumming style evolves. You need a Demon Drive.

Demons and Z-Links and Ninjas, Oh My!

Pearl's Eliminator bass pedals are well respected among drummers all over the world, and the Demon Drive aspires to even greater heights. The essence of the design is to create a direct link from your foot to the beater, providing tight responsiveness and spot-on control of the beat. Traditional chain- and belt-drive pedals have some lag when there's slack in the system, and drummers have had to work around it. Pearl's Demon Drive pedal, however, offers a direct drive due to the proprietary Z-Link technology. When you step on the foot plate, there's no delay, hesitation, or inconsistency in the response, just a clear, open line of communication from your foot all the way to the drumhead. You don't need to compensate for lag, so your blast beats are more precise and your syncopation is even funkier than ever! The P-3002D double-pedal offers Z-Link on both the master and the slave, so you have the same tight control with either foot.

The direct-drive action is key to a tight groove, but it's got to be smooth, too. Pearl chose Ninja bearings for the axle--that's right, the same ones used in high-end professional skateboards--to keep everything rolling smoothly along. Ninja bearings go through a special laser-driven micro-polishing process to cut down on friction and speed up your playing. In the Demon Drive, these spherical bearings are self-aligning to ensure the foot plate and the drive mechanism are always on track, even when your foot is off-axis (if only you could get the bass player to compensate like that). The P-3002D's machined aluminum shaft provides flex-free energy transfer so the action on your left foot is as silky-smooth as the action on your right.

Rolls with the Changes

For most young drummers, speed and power is king, and the unholy quest for BPM is in high gear. Time goes by, cartilage wears thin, and creaky-kneed old-timers develop a penchant for finesse playing (no, really, I don't need to play that fast, this groove is tastier). The feel-good pedal of the year, Pearl's Demon Drive has something for everybody. For starters, the direct link is adjustable, letting you switch-up your angle of attack to suit your style. Set it to the rear for extra power and a harder stroke, or slide it forward for more refined, intricate beats. Additionally, both foot pedals are adjustable from longboard to shortboard format. Choose whichever method is most comfortable for you, and take comfort in knowing you can always switch it around. Finally, Pearl understands that most drummers are a little persnickety about getting their kit set just-so. Some players have the wide stance, while others prefer to get up close and personal with the snare. The P-3002D has an adjustable connecting shaft and zero-latency U-joints, so you're free to lay out the pedals wherever you want, knowing the rock-solid performance is right there with you. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Pearl products.

Ultimate Smoothness
Play a Demon Drive and the first thing you'll notice is its unparalleled smoothness. The Demon Drive gets its' incredible smoothness and speed through the use of ultra-precise components. Self-aligning spherical bearings are used to insure the footboard and Direct Link Drive are always in perfect alignment, zero-latency Z-Link U-Joints on the double pedal driveshaft and special super high speed Ninja bearings on the axles all work in perfect sync to create the smoothest and fastest pedal on the planet.

Tailor Made for Your Feet
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.

Additional features of this amazing pedal include 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 pedal configuration.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (40 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "wow..."
Sound: This thing is utterly silent... thus a perfect 10 in sound! Feature: This pedal is the most adjustable pedal on the market; the only thing they could have done better is include the wood beaters as well which retail separately for around $50 apiece. Ease of Use: I took this right out of the box, and hooked it up to my electronic drum set in my apartment. The factory settings were perfect; I could instantly and effortlessly play any double bass pattern I'd ever tried before; having been an Iron Cobra Flexi-Glide player for years I was scared of the transition, but it was seamless. This pedal feels amazing. Quality: This pedal is perfect, quality-wise. I would expect no less out of a $650 investment, though, and I think Pearl knows that so they really deliver. One thing though that really sets this apart from most other double pedals on the market is that you can take it and with some minor adjustments, turn it into two separate single pedals for if and when you switch between one and two bass drums. The DW and Tama competitors do not allow this; they force you to buy additional pedals, meaning even though this is slightly more expensive, it could actually be cheaper in the long run. Value: Again, 8/10 on the value because I had to buy the wood beaters separately, whereas Tama has the foresight to include wood AND rubber beaters with their Iron Cobras. Manufacturer Support: I give this a 10/10 on support because though I've only had it for a month, I don't EVER expect to have to contact anybody for any help with this pedal. Pearl = quality, and this pedal is built to last. The Wow Factor: This thing is sexy as hell... sleek silver and orange finish, and it says "Demon" on it, which just looks awesome. Overall: I don't see having to replace this any time in the foreseeable future. I may if some significant new jump in pedal technology comes out, but this thing is just too versatile to ever fail anyone.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth the price and no better choice for anyone who wants a new pedal. I will never go back to a chain driven pedal."
Sound: This pedal is a great investment for any drummer. I was a little unsure about buying 600+ dollar pedal. Once you play it, you immediately feel and hear a difference. Your bass drum gets more volume and you feel a smooth action all the way to the kick drum. I did'nt ajdust any tension, just left it the way it was OOB. Feature: I think the most useful aspect is the ability to change the length of the footboard. Makes the pedal more versatile. Ease of Use: If you have previous experience with double bass you will find this pedal to make it easier to carry solid rythms. Quality: It's really sturdy and put together really well, no wobbling or squeaking. Value: I believe this pedal is worth the price. You get a nice case, key, and the pedal is amazing. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt Pearl before. No issues. The Wow Factor: The looks are very different from what I normally see in a double bass pedal. Asthetically, it looks better than the others. Overall: This pedal will last me for several years. I like the feel and will surely keep it as long as I possibly can. If this item were stolen I would try to obtain it again for sure.
