Very nice !!!

question: can you remove the toe stop ?

I'm looking for a new pedal and the p2000c
looks very good in the adjustment department...

How do you like it ??? did you try different cams ??

Thanks !

Philippe

Great pedal! Try the white cam, it gives smooth action. I just switched after two years of blue and I really love it.

The toestops can be removed by the way, virtually everything can be adjusted on the pedal, even the little rubber dots on the footboard...

yes, the toe stop can be removed but i'm gonna keep going with it on for the time being. i have been playing for about three days so far with the pedal and so far been using the blue cam. lovin' the action but as time goes by i'll use different cams to experience the possibilites.

yeah I switched the plate around the first night of using it for the traction and I think it is best for me. when I first got the set(TAMA IMPERIALSTAR) it came with their bottom line stock pedal. it was ok to start out with but as time went by I felt that there was only so much I could do with it, couldn't seem to improve my footwork. so after months of researching online for pedals, the eliminators seemed to be the most praised. I don't have the luxury of driving an hour to my local guitar center to test the pedals so I patiently did my homework through the discussion forums and between DW 5000 and yamaha flying dragons, I chose the Eliminators. I am very pleased with my choice.

They're tama's accutune hoops, made out of GRP. They used to go on most of their sets in the 1990s but then they shifted them down to the imperialstars. So they're pretty good hoops, they're just used on the budget sets because of their lack of aesthetic appeal.
