Default pearl demon vs eliminator?

Hello,

I want to buy new single pedal and I'm hesitating between the pearl demon drives and pearl eliminator pedals...
I want to go fast for punk/rock, but I still want some control for jazz/fusion.

Which ones should I take?

I have the Eliminator, great pedal. I would not spend the money on the demon drive it will not make you play faster because of the kool name. I really suggest checking out the Tama speed Cobra. It was one of the best pedals I tried in a long time.

DW, Yamaha, and Sonor also make good pedals. Sonor usually is a bit pricey though....

Two different pedals......direct drives offer a different feel to a chain or strap driven pedal. I like the feel of direct drive pedals, but many don't. Playing 'em both is the only way to determine what you like.

+1 on this response.

Direct drive pedals will only do what your foot will do. It won't go any faster than your foot is going.

The only way to go faster is to practice and gain control with your foot and ankle being consistent in each stroke....and to do that, 'ya gotta start slow.....

Get the pedal that feels the most comfortable under your foot, and don't worry about brand, or the marketing names.

Good luck!

Truth.

Different constructions offer different differing feel for both pedals, and if you factor in the interchangeable cams for the Eliminators, the difference only grows. It's not a matter of subjectivity.

I will, however, say that the Demons are unbelievably smooth. Like playing on a cloud, if that makes sense.

I would go with the Eliminators. Try the red or yellow cam.
