OVERVIEW

Interchangeable cams make one pedal into many!

The Pearl P-2000C PowerShifter Eliminator Chain-Drive Pedal features an interchangeable cam system! Comes with four uniquely shaped and color-coded cams. The black cam is Pearl's original linear-feel cam. The white cam is also linear, but larger in diameter for a lighter feel and increased power. The blue is offset and starts with a light feel at the beginning of the stroke and accelerates with speed and power upon impact. The red is radically offset and provides great response for sensitive footwork and extreme power upon impact. All cams attach and detach easily at the push of a button.

The Eliminater is one of the best pedal's ever owned, and I'm 55yrs. old. I use it at least an hour a day for the last 2yrs. I lubed it up a couple of days ago, and did'nt see any kind of wear on it at all. If you take care of it, it"ll take care of you. It's a fast and smooth, and dose'nt make ant noise at all. I also own the pearl 900 series as a back up peadal. I belive it will be many year's b-4 I'll need it. And the 900 series was set perfct out of the box. I own a set of Pearl series Vision SST all birch shell's. I did'nt buy my pedal because it was a pearl. It was word of mouth. And they were right about the pedal.

    Comments about Pearl P-2000C PowerShifter Eliminator Chain-Drive Pedal:

    I've been playing for 40 years – Speed Kings, Iron Cobras, Yamaha Direct Drive, and others (and some really bad pedals) but I've never been able to find a pedal that I don't end up fighting with. Quick patterns, though I can do them in my head and tapping my foot on the floor, were always a challenge either because the spring tension was too great and I'd barely hit the drum head, or it was too loose and would not return quickly enough to do the pattern I had in my head.

    There was no way I was going to spend three-hundred plus to find a pedal that *might* work. After reading a lot of reviews and getting a great deal from MF I ordered an Elminator.

    Fit and finish on the pedal are very nice (crinkle paint, brushed aluminum mostly). I really like beaters with some substance, and this beater has substance.
    The pedal is as smooth as any I've owned, but the really great feature of this pedal is the replaceable cams, not because you'll (likely) be swapping them out a bunch, but you will be able to find what you like without having to get a new pedal.

    The black cam is a perfect circle and with it the pedal feels like any good pedal. The white cam is a perfect circle but larger, which makes it softer/easier to play. The blue cam (which many people like best) is slightly eccentric, causing the beater to move quickly. The red cam is radically eccentric, and many reviewers I read said that it made the pedal way too sensitive for them. For me, however, it was just the ticket. I'm finally able to get my pedal to do what my brain is thinking.

    Other great features include actual steel tension screws (plastic on most brands today, even on their higher end models). Three positions for the "power shifter" footplate, and three positions for the footboard angle are sufficient. Infinite adjust on this pedal is not necessary. In fact, I ended up leaving both adjustments in the middle position. When I moved them, the pedal did feel different, but I soon adjusted to the feel and it made no difference in my playing. You can tweak these other settings to taste, but the real difference is in the cam you choose.

    Cons? There are only two that I can see: I wish the part of the pedal that the bass drum hoop rests on was rubber-padded (a trip to the home improvement store shuold fix that); and I wish that there was an on-board drum key holder. Beside those two minor criticisms, no complaints.

    If you're in the market for your first good pedal, the Eliminator is as good as any, better than most. If you've got a good pedal, but you've never been able to get it to do what you brain is thinking, give the Eliminator a try.

      Comments about Pearl P-2000C PowerShifter Eliminator Chain-Drive Pedal:

      I had this pedal for 5 or 6 years and it was amazing. It was very responsive, very tweakable, and hit hard.

      Unfortunately after several years, the piece connecting the chain to the beater broke when I unscrewed it. I tried calling Pearl to get replacement parts but it wasn't a piece that they sell.

        Comments about Pearl P-2000C PowerShifter Eliminator Chain-Drive Pedal:

        I used a dw 9000 for 3 or 4 years and had a lot of personal frustrations with playability. I switched to this one and have been using it for two years. It's going strong and has stayed clean and like new thanks to the case that comes with it.
        Moral of the story, some pedals are too smooth and lack feel. This has a much lower price point than the 9000 and has the feel that i needed. I could immediatley play patterns that I was struggling with previously.

            I purchased my first P 2000C for my kit based on the recommendation of a friend who plays professionally. I liked it so well I bought one for our Church's kit. The versatility is the best I have found on any pedal, it's easy to set up and adjust. I have not tried all of the cams yet, because I am getting all I need out of the black and white ones. For me it "smokes" my Iron Cobra. I would recommend this pedal to anyone who has not tried one.

            Comments about Pearl P-2000C PowerShifter Eliminator Chain-Drive Pedal:

            I bought a set of these pedals a few years ago around the time they were first introduced. I had a set of premier pedals which when I first started out of my tama swingstar 7 piece double bass kit worked well to build up muscle memory and such. However when I got these, they opened a whole new world to speed and comfort.
            The cam system is a good idea however I found that if you are playing any kind of fast double bass for long periods of time the blue cam works the best. The black and white ones are okay if you are playing a more rock alternitive style which since I play faster style wasn't for me. The red one is a extreme offset cam witch is good for intriquite foot work but in my opinion aren't the best.
            Over all I would recomend this pedal for anyone who wants a fast reliable pedal.

                        I bought 2 of single eliminator pedals ( I play 2 bass drums ), and I put the red cam on them and put the footboard all the way back, and I use the plastic side of the beater for more punch and attack, and boy do these pedals fly. These are the best pedals I have ever played and I have owned dw900's, tama iron cobras, and axis pedals, but Pearl makes the best pedals.
