    I think you can swap the cams, you can on most pedals.

      I have the Pearl Eliminator double-pedal (p-2002-C) and love it. So many adjustable parts. While I can change the cams to different sizes and shapes, I don't think there is any way to change the chain to a belt, or vise-versa. They are sold as different pedals altogether.

        I'm not familiar with the latest Pearl pedals, but I think Colquhoun is correct. I don't know of any pedals that share the same mounting system for both belt and chain. (unless some of the custom high ends do) They are usually different - and thus, the reason he said you have to buy different pedals. Usually, the actual board has a different design at the toe.

          Hiya again

          The splurge in the info states interchange...just wondered if anyone had done it, the following is from the Pearl website ...

          Belt Drive and Dual Chain Drive
          PowerShifter Eliminator pedals are available with either dual chain drive or belt drive. The belt is made from three plies of super-strength polymers for extreme dependability, smoothness and quiet action. Both chain and belt drives are adjustable to allow the angle of the footboard to be set to ones preference. Additionally, the chain (model #CCA-5) and belt (model #BCA-1), both available at your authorized Pearl dealer, can be quickly interchanged using only a drumkey and Phillips head screwdriver.

          Here's the page

            why would you prefer chain.. habit ?
            strap is lighter, quiet, doesn't get dusty/smudge,
            just as strong (i think it won't snap at 500 kg's)
            and there's zero free play.
            i played P2002B, i'm not dissing chain though.

              Hi, i saw a new "chain" version Pearl P-2000C pedal for £75 (they just have that one pedal) and the going rate price is normally £125 from Thomann in Germany etc so i wanted to get it as it's a bargain but i want to swap the chain for a strap as it's quieter and smoother. So i just wanted to know if "as stated in the specs" it's possible and are the parts available, that's all

                Thanks for the heads-up on this. I might just try it out with a strap if I can.
                Makes me wonder though, if it is that easy to do, why they didn't just ship it with a chain AND strap? Could be about cost, but c'mon...they ship the double pedal with 2 sets of cams (8 cams total), 2 drum keys, 6 hex wrenches and a nice case.
                Additionally, they wouldn't have to make packaging for two different pedals.

                  daveybabes, i misunderstood your initial post
                  yes, on the 2000 you can swap chain/belt.
                  colquhoun, the cams is really something different,
                  4 types of "beater-action".

                      The belt can be swopped out for a chain in about a minute. I have a double chain and two single belt drives, I swopped them over as the belt is much nicer IMHO - and I've played nothing but chains for 19 years! YMMV though

                      I heard from my drum shop that Pearl tend to charge a lot for these drives to discourage them ending up on other pedals, but hey who knows.

                      Thomann do the straps for about 12, chain cost dunno, but the belt is soooo smooth and quick, quiet, responsive - it shows at higher speeds.
                      Ace pedals - go for it mate
                      HTH
                      Cheers

                        Thanks Paul

                        Thanks Paul, yeah i just wanted to confirm it's a straight swap, on the website it stated interchangeable but they didn't go into detail so i was thinking were there more parts that had to be swapped to hold the belt but now you sorted my head out on it thanks.

                          That's cool. I actually like belts better than chains and have been thinking about swapping back. Thanks for the links!

                            I am about to get a set of belts for my chain drive doubles (P-2002C) At least now I know it can be done. Really keen to see what the difference is as I have only ever played chain drive and more recently direct drive.
                            For the record the Pearl spare part number for the belt to suit P-2000 pedals is: BCA-1
