Pearl have today unveiled a raft of new additions to their much-lauded hardware rage, including new pedals, hi-hat stands, single braced hardware and attachments…
Eliminator Solo Bass Drum Pedals
Pearl’s revolutionary Powershifter Eliminator, featuring the Patented Inter- changeable Cam System, has been the trusted bass drum pedal for countless drummers for nearly 20 years. Now in 2020, Pearl’s Eliminator Solo bass drum pedals deliver all the speed and performance of the original Eliminator, 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.
“Sometimes, the simplest solution delivers just the right answers,” states Pearl VP of Sales and Marketing, Glen Caruba. “Eliminator Solo pedals are built for reliable play without worrying about added adjustment or customization. Simple, powerful, fast; just what the working drummer needs!”
Other Eliminator features include the Roller Hoop Clamp, multi-surface beater, custom- izeable Powershifter function.
RRP’s: Eliminator Solo: Black – Single – €125.00
Eliminator Solo: Black – Double – €309.00
Eliminator Solo: Red – Single – €149.00
Eliminator Solo: Red – Double – €379.00
H1030 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.
RRP: H1030 Double Braced Hi Hat Stand: €169.00
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.
“We have a lot of active gigging drummers here in-house at Pearl,” states Pearl’s Direc- tor of Research and Development, Raymond Massey. “We wanted a series of stands that could take on the rigors of non-stop gigging without needing a Drum Tech to transport them. Taking the 930 stands back to a single tripod bracing did the trick!”
Each stand is equipped with Pearl Uni-Lock gearless tilters to make finding the correct angle a breeze. All this make 930S Series Stands essential for the gigging player.
A corresponding single-braced 1030 Series Hi-Hat stand (H1030S,) is now available to not only partner with the 930S Stands, but also Pearl’s new Eliminator: Solo bass drum pedals. Its independent Trident tripod is positioned separate from the pedal frame to easily accommodate double bass drum pedals.
RRP’s: Straight Cymbal Stand – €85.00
Boom Cymbal Stand: €89.00
Snare Stand: €79.00
Hi Hat Stand €159.00
Hardware Pack: €309.00
Unblock Arm & Leg Adaptor
Finally, the UniLock Arm & Leg Cymbal Adapter (CHA70) is a multi-positional cymbal arm that creates quick, easy cymbal expansion around the drum set.
Combining an extendable cymbal boom arm with two-way multi-positioning clamp, the CHA70 attaches to existing knurled rods around the kit from 8mm to 12mm. This makes adding cymbals to floor tom legs, L-Arms, and cymbal boom arms totally possible, ex- panding your set-up without additional stands.
The boom arm’s gearless Uni-lock tilter adjusts to practically any angle, and the for- ward/aft and side-to-side adjustment of the mounting clamp makes difficult positioning around the drum set a breeze. Exceptional for working drummers who want to extend the use of existing gear in tight spaces.
