NAMM 2011: Mapex launches Raptor direct drive bass drum pedal

NAMM 2011 PRESS RELEASE: Mapex Drums introduces the Raptor direct drive bass drum pedal. Combining the best features of each assembly, the durable steel linkage has the accuracy of a direct drive while maintaining the classic feel of a chain drive.

"The Direct Drive Raptor is the only pedal that mixes the appeal of a direct drive with the feel of a chain drive," says Joe Hibbs, Product Manager for Mapex.

"We have incorporated many of the key features from our popular Falcon pedal into the new Raptor pedal, including a beater with interchangeable weights, smaller pedal footprint, and floating spring assembly."

The new Raptor pedal is available now in a Single Pedal (P900), and Double Pedal (P900-TW) and includes a foot pedal bag.
