MAPEX creates its pro quality and modern version of the classic “direct drive” bass drum pedal design in a double pedal version! Includes a soft case!

Mapex creates its pro quality and modern version of the classic direct drive bass drum pedal design in a double pedal version! Includes a soft case!

The Mapex Raptor Direct Drive Double Bass Drum Pedal is a pro quality design that combines the security and the inherent momentum of a direct drive linkage while maintaining the smooth, even feel of a chain drive pedal. The direct drive pushes the footboard back on rebound, giving the pedal a more direct response, dynamic action and a great sense of speed. This design has been the basis for several of the most widely-used bass drum pedals in drum hardware history.

Incorporated into the Raptor are advanced Mapex pedal features including a suspended, torque-free spring mechanism, bass drum beaters with interchangeable weights, a smaller pedal footboard and of course, the direct drive linkage. This combined formula results in a double pedal with incredible flexibility and a feel that’s unbelievably responsive and fluid.

The Raptor P900DTW also comes with a soft case for carrying or storage.

Let’s review the key features:

  • The smaller pedal footprint allows for a better and closer placement of the snare stand, hi-hat stand or other nearby hardware.

  • The bass drum beaters come with a 10g weight. The 10g weight can be changed to a 20g or you might prefer no weight at all.

  • The drive system is a Mapex direct drive which insures power, accuracy, stability and reliability.

  • The Raptor tension spring mechanism is suspended. There is no binding and the design minimizes any resistance.

  • Adjustable beater angle.

  • Pedal carrying bag

The new Mapex Raptor is available in a single and a double model. Once you play it, you’ll understand immediately why the Mapex Raptor is the only pedal with direct drive appeal and a chain drive feel.

      Comments about Mapex Raptor Direct Drive Double Bass Drum Pedals:

      Wow, these pedals are fast. Between these and their Falcon brothers, Mapex makes some really good double pedals. Direct drive, which is making a name for themselves, provide a very fast, responsive attack and feel, while being very silent. The Raptors were incredibly fast, un-adjusted and right out of the box. The 10 and 20g beater weights help you really pick and define what's best for your style. Honestly blew me away. I'm caught up between the Falcons and the Raptors right now, but the Raptors promise a speed and versatility that I don't know can go untried. Definitely worth a chance to check out, if not buy.

      This is a real hands on product review from Chris @ Sam Ash Huntington.
