    Default pearl eliminator 2002c vs tama speed cobra

    there have been thread iron cobra vs eliminator and in my opinion eliminator wins.

    i have not found on the internet a comparison thread about speed cobra.
    so, anyone who has tested them can tell us what they think?
    the assembly wheel broke from my powershifter so i am thinking about buying a new double pedal and i am between the 2. eliminator is the sure choice, but i am very curious about speed cobra. thanx

    Haven't got my hands on speed cobra yet, but here's a couple of thoughts.
    First of - pearl's drive shaft is much better then tama's and doesn't wear out so quickly, that's a plus for elim.
    Second - elim has been around for a while, and everything that was bad with the design was fixed long ago - as far as i've read, the tama failed to adress the slave side wobbling issue. that's not a real problem, but it's annoying.
    On the other hand - i believe speed cobra has a longer footboard then elim even on maxed settings - that's a huge plus if you have big feet like I do.
    as always - try before you buy, this is all just speculation, really.

    It's worth mentioning that Tama updated their drive shafts.

    If you pay close attention, the u-joints are different than the old ones. And new Iron Cobras are using Speed Cobras drive shaft now. But time will tell if those are better than the old ones.

    I've had mine since Christmas and played them every day since, hard. I've never had a single problem with the drive shaft, OR the slave side having a wobble.(god that makes me so mad when people down it for that) and I love the pedal dearly. I actually picked it over the elims but to each their own.

    That's very short time for it to develop play in u-joints of the drive shaft. It takes years for that. Now, I'm not saying it will develop play, cause Tama updated their drive shafts, they probably made them better now and were aware of the problems with their older Iron Cobra doubles which were known for developing play in the drive shaft.

    I would like to add that Tama took a long time to fix the problems with their pedals ( still have some ) and by the time they did it was too late cause alot of drummers who bought these pedal where disappointed with some of the flaws. Pearl on the other hand is a different story they fixed their flaws years ago and that is why it has always been popular maybe more pricey but aye you pay for what you ge rigt. I own the Eliminator 2000c and if I was to upgrade it would definitly be another Pearl cause I stick to the good brand.
    Keep on drumming and have fun doing it.

    I just love it cause it has the feel between chain and DD, and the feel between short and longboard.
