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?

NAMM 2020: NEW PEARL PRODUCTS COMING THIS YEAR
Drum Pedal NEW Pearl Eliminator Solo pedal For the reliable play of the working drummer. In 2020, Pearl is introducing Eliminator Solo bass drum pedals which deliver all the speed and performance of the original Eliminator, but in a single cam option. The Eliminator Solo: Black features the focused feel of the circular Linear Action (Black) Cam. Its slightly weighted feel and resistance-free footboard deliver traditional feel, power and speed with less muscle fatigue. The contrasting Eliminator Solo: Red delivers a lighter, fluid feel thanks to the Radical Progressive Action (Red) Cam. Best suited for the high-speed play, its sharp Cam angle increases rebound for a lightning fast, accurate stroke. New Pearl 930 Series Single-Braced Stands Boasting the same sturdy tubing and tier joints as their double-braced counterparts, Pearl’s new 930 Series Single Braced Hardware is an excellent choice for the gigging drummer on the move. Using the high-function and durability of the 930 Series stands, the Cymbal (C930S,) Cymbal Boom (BC930S,) and Snare (S930S,) stands are built to stand up to rigorous gigging and play with dramatically reduced weight. New Pearl 1030 Series Double-Braced Hi-Hat Stand Boasting the same sturdy tubing and tier joints as Pearl’s 930 Series stands, the new double-braced H1030 Series Hi-Hat stand is now available as a counterpart to Pearl’s new Eliminator: Solo bass drum pedals. Its smooth, traditional footboard performs with resistance-free precision, while the independent Trident tripod is positioned separate from the pedal frame to easily accommodate double bass drum pedals. New Pearl Unilock Arm & Leg Adapter The UniLock Arm & Leg Cymbal adapter (CHA70) is a multi-positional cymbal arm that creates quick, easy cymbal expansion around the drum set. The boom arm’s gearless Uni-lock tilter adjusts to practically any angle. Exceptional for working drummers who want to extend the use of existing gear in tight spaces. Percussion Ever Popular Travel Congas Redesigned Updated Pearl Travel Congas features 3.5” deep wood shells that deliver maximum portability and sound.

Tuning the Remo Symmetry heads is effortless with five precision Allen tuning bolts and the included wrench. The newly redesigned Travel Congas also have a newly designed stand. New Travel Bongos Introducing the new Travel Bongos that are small enough, they fit comfortably in a backpack. Pearl Travel Bongos feature 3.5” deep wood shells that deliver maximum portability and sound. The new Travel Bongos stand features a gear tilter to put your drums at the right angle and utilizes a tension lever mounting system that securely locks your drums in place. Each stand includes a travel bag with shoulder strap, so your stands are as portable as the Travel Bongos. Accessories New Aluminum Trap Table Ideal for indoor and outdoor use, this spacious table has room for a surprising number of sticks, mallets and percussion instruments. Side walls prevent mallets from rolling off. The table is finished in gray powder coating, while the Chrome stand features black powder coated, double braced legs and a memory lock. New Tongue Drum Bag From percussion ensembles, elementary music instruction, solo performance, yoga instruction and drum circles, tongue drums are always on the go. This nylon bag is padded on the top, bottom and sides to fully protect your drum and ensure safe transportation. It also has a zippered pouch on the side for your mallets or personal items.
