    Default P3002D Eliminator Demon Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal

    Does anyone have experince with this pedal? I currently have a P932 but feel limited by the single chain due to my swivel technique. It's just an unfortunate habbit that I got into while playing. Plus it feels comfortable and I'm able to keep a steady rhythm going. But now the double bass parts are getting fast, techniqual, and precise. I need a solid durable pedal that wont shake left to right when I'm doing my foot work but still has power and great response. I've read nothing but great things about this baby and I got a great deal (little over $100 off) and just wanted feed back

    Hello OfXaos,
    I transitioned from an Eliminator double pedal to a Demon Drive double pedal (P3002D) back when the Demon Drives first came out. There was definitely a bit of a learning curve as far as getting used to the feel of the Demon Drive. However, you will get used to it over time, and will definitely see the benefits in upgrading.

    For me, the main issue to overcome was how the response of the pedal was affected by the beater weight. I was used to the weight of the Quad beaters and the response from the double chain on the Eliminators with said beaters. Switching to the Demon Drive, I found that both the stock felt beaters and the quad beaters felt too light on the Demon Drive. Not bad, just too light. It took a bit of trial and error with different beaters and setups for the pedal before I got it just right.

    The P3002 is a sweet pedal, especially if your playing is going further into "fast, technical, and precise" territory. Just be mindful to take the time and learn your pedal, as you would any other. I recommend Vic Firth VicKick beaters (wood or felt) to get the best response, weight and power -- no matter what way you setup your pedal.

    Hope this helps!
