MEET REDLINE ROBOT

Live Streaming Durability Experiment Have you ever wondered how long can a drum pedal live? How many shows and practice sessions can it survive? To answer all these questions once and forever Pearl set up the Eliminator Redline Pedal Durability Experiment. We built a special robot to see what is the limit to this pedal and for how long can it resist a beating. You can watch it online or follow its Twitter account to get regular updates. Will it last a month, a year or will the robot break before the pedal? Stay tuned to find out. Pearl’s original PowerShifter Eliminator was a giant leap ahead in bass drum pedals. The world’s only pedal featuring the patented Interchangeable Cam System, Eliminator’s virtually unlimited tunability lets the player lock in totally personalized feel, power and speed. The Eliminator Redline is the next step forward. Like having four kick drum pedals in one, Redline fuses the stunning power and flexibility of the original Eliminator pedal with the fluid speed of our Demon series pedals. With a host of radical improvements, Eliminator Redline unlocks the perfect feel by choosing a cam, further pushing the boundaries of bass drum performance. Want to know more?
