High Degree of Customization
Since the Pearl Eliminator Redline Double Pedal can be greatly customized to suit your taste and preferences, you can definitely find a set up that is just right for you. It may take you some time to fiddle around with the different features to get it all just right… But when it’s done, you’ll be very pleased to have a pedal set that is perfect for you.
It’s worth noting that the high degree of variation will mean that some combinations may work against each other. You’ll need to be aware of what you’re doing and how it’ll affect your playing.
The Redline’s features are patented and you can quickly and easily vary pedal performance by using the interchangeable cam system. If you wish to move the footboard up and down you can use the ‘Powershifter’ feature. This is really helpful.
You’ll also be able to remove and change the rubber disks that are located in the grip plate. The color scheme of grey, red and black is very pleasing to eye and overall, these are very stylish pedals.
While the pedals allow you the option of customizing them, if you just wish to use them as they come, that’s fine too. They are good to use upon purchase without changing anything.
