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 an immediate drive linkage whilst 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 naturally, the direct drive linkage. This combined formula leads to a double pedal with improbable 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 will also 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 not any binding and the design minimizes any resistance.
- Adjustable beater angle.
- Pedal carrying bag
The new Mapex Raptor is to be had in a single and a double model. Once you play it, you ll take note instantly why the Mapex Raptor is the only pedal with direct drive appeal and a chain drive feel.
