Default Re: Mapex Falcon Strap Drive

Old thread but thought I'd chime in here.

There was a patent and lawsuit issue between Mapex and Pearl. The first falcon came with two cams which is was the issue since pearl has pedals with interchangeable cams. That's why mapex has redesigned the falcon and made the cam permanent, but the drives are still sold separately which seems fair I guess. The strap is not very common, but the direct drive is always up on ebay or big mapex dealer sites.

The falcon is by far one of the best feeling pedals. I have the newer one with the case and other accessories which is awesome. Used to own tama power glide double before and it was nice too. Such a shame that they had to change it...
