              Comments about Mapex P900DTW Raptor Direct Drive Double Pedal:

              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.

              Comments about Mapex P900DTW Raptor Direct Drive Double Pedal:

              This pedal is pretty good, especially for the price. At time of writing, it is the cheapest direct drive pedal I could find.

              I have two primary gripes about it....

              First, the slave pedal seems kind of unresponsive compared to other similarly priced double pedals. Slave pedals will always be lesser than primary pedals, but even after adjusting, I just cant get the slave to the feel I want; which leads me to my second point.

              There is no pedal footboard height adjustment independent of the beater. I know it is a cheaper pedal, but this is a pretty standard adjustment to me. If this was a sacrifice for direct drive, I would say it really isnt worth it. To that end, I would recommend the chain version of the Raptor over this (which does have independent footboard height adjustment); but that is just my opinion.

              Overall, good pedal. You could certainly do worse than this.

                  Comments about Mapex P900DTW Raptor Direct Drive Double Pedal:

                  First off, I'm not a double pedal player but acquired one of these through a promotion. I have tried other double pedals, so here's my take:

                  Better than a DW 7002, which I have owned, a smidgeon better than a DW 5002, which I have played, but not as good as a DW 9002, which I love. However, it is not too much less than the 9002. This is an incredible pedal for the price. The pedals were adjusted a little low for my hi-hat stand (same manufacturer) but a friend saw it and had to have it so I sold the Raptor to him. BUT, this, again, is an excellent value from Mapex. Can't wait to watch the other companies come out with a competitive pedal. Right now, there isn't one.

                  Includes a case, priced right, quick and smooth, fantastic buy for the money.

                  Great pedal for value and money!

                  Comments about Mapex P900DTW Raptor Direct Drive Double Pedal:

                  Just about everything on it, is awesome value, and its a great pedal for people to start off on or if your a stritc metal guy like me.
                  I tried this out in guitar center about a week and half ago? 2 weeks? And, I thought DAMN! This pedal is great. Not just the price but it felt great, the beaters were a good weight, and the footboard was godly! I've been on iron cobras for awhile, idk if that has anything to do with me liking it!!

                  This thing is just simply amazing, really. it. blew. me. away.the pedal is just incredibly smooth and super easy to breakdown, it comes with a CASE by the way, so thats a help. I pretty much pulled the trigger on this one and it was so worth it, get it, not because its a beast but because its got the BEST prices for the durability, speed, and quality. Mapex is stepin' it up.
