Bearings likely to fail!

By Sean Graff

from Wisconsin

As stated in another review, the main pedal has two seperate rotating shafts with ONE bearing supporting each beater. The bearings soon became loose, causing the beater to tilt and get sloppy. I first noticed the area where the beater strikes the bass drum head was starting to get worn. Instead of the right beater hitting the bass drum straight on, it looked like more of a left to right glancing movement. I think it took about 3-4 months of moderate use(2-3 hours per week), and I am not a speed double player. I Googled it and found out it was a common problem with the pedal. I didnt get it fixed yet because, unless there are ungraded/improved bearing kits installed,it will only be a matter of time before they fail again. Too bad, because I like the feel and action of the pedal. One review on here states the pedal has a center support between the shafts that breaks after little use. When I purchased mine, they did not??? Pics on the packaging from Mapex also do not show it???

GREAT Product

By D.J. Ottis

from Bay City, TX

I bought these pedals a good while back and was kinda skeptical about the purchace,because i was originally looking to buy speed cobras or some axis pedals, you know, the HIGH QUALITY stuff. but i got impatient and bought these, and it was a great purchase, they are fast and smooth, its a high quality petal reguardless of the price, the beaters have good weights, and really push the mids of your bass drum out. i know bass petals are a very picky item of percussion equipment but this is an AMAZING petal. mapex did a great job on this product!

Fast and smooth until it breaks

By Richard Spoo

from Illinois

I have used this pedal for practice and live shows and it felt great. Its comparable to the Pearl PowerShifter P-2002C in smoothness and speed. Unfortunately, the pedal broke on me after several shows and weekly practice within about 6 months. The thin metal bar that connects both sides on the right pedal snapped off on one side which wasn't a big deal. The major issue is that the construction of the bearings where the hammer moves became loose causing the whole part to be pulled down instead of rotated to hit the bass. Since I got Guitar Center's extra warranty, I brought the pedal in to get a replacement. I received a brand new Raptor in the mail after about a week but to my dismay, this new pedal has broken as well after only weekly practice. A good double kick has to take the punishment of beats, blast beats, and straight double bass beats. The construction of this pedal is poor and breaks easily. Other Notes: Tama brand beaters do NOT work on this pedal. The stock beaters do NOT hit perfectly perpendicular to the skin and there is NO angle adjustment whatsoever to compensate for it.

Awesome Pedals!!

By Paul Moore

from Arkansas

These are very durable and heavy. The carpet spikes are very impressive THEY WILL NOT SLIDE UNDER YOUR FEET!! The beaters aren't that great, but you could easily replace them if you wanted too! The direct drive is awesome, and are very good for people that are aquatinted with double bass. Overall VERY awesome pedals! You can't go wrong with Mapex :)

Fantastic!

By Duncan Innes

from Seattle, washington

I just bought these and i am very pleased. I play Prog. Metal such as Dream Theater and Rush. These are just what i was looking for without breaking the bank on some Axis or Trick pedals. I have no complaints, in the box contained a portable carrying case for them with a free drum key and some other free goodies. Extremely portable from show to show, phenomenal! Great for speed and consistency.

Can't Say Enough Good Things

By Kirk O'Steen

from Raleigh, NC

I got this pedal about a month ago and I have to say it's one of the best drumming purchases I've ever made. I previously had DW 7000s and they were ok but a little uneven and I needed to upgrade. I was looking at the DW 5000s and possibly the cobras but one of the employees suggested I check out these Mapex Raptors. Needless to say, hah, I bought them. As far as being smooth, the only limitations you'll have are your own abilities. They're incredibly smooth. The beaters come with a 10g weight in them that can be switched out for heavier or lighter weights. Cool feature but you have to get the weights separately. As far as the actual beaters, though, I think they're great. Adjust ability is great. Only thing I don't like is they can't be converted into two separate pedals, and they don't have a place for a drum key. In addition, the pedal clamp that goes on the BD could be improved. Overall, if you're on a budget, and need a solid pedal. This one is the best. I'd get it again in a heart beat.

Best pedals under $500

By Jake Krull

from Menomonee Falls Wisconsin

Bought these pedals the other day and feel in love right away to replace my taye PSK pedals, which were par, but I needed something better and more reliable. The mapex raptor pedals provide speed and power un-matched within the $500 price-range or lower. The adjustability is impressive too, could get the pedals and the beaters at any spot i need or want them. Speed wise, they're faster than Iron Cobras, Speed Cobras, Yamaha Direct-Drive pedals, Powershifters, and the DW5000s. One of the best parts of the direct drive pedals is the lack of back-lash. it's the type of ease you'd just have to play to feel the difference. It affects the speed, the precision, and ease of use. If you're serious about your double-bass pedals, but don't want to spend top dollar on the best axis or trick pedals, these are the ones for you. Don't let the price trick you into thinking theyre just average or a little above average. Nothing even comes close in the price range
