What We Think

The Mapex Drum Company has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V.  Adding the SONIClear bearing edge to these drums clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of the Saturn’s Maple and Walnut hybrid shell.  This new bearing edge eliminates the age-old problem of rack toms not resonating to their full potential after they're mounted on a stand.  The tom holder also dramatically increases sustain and fullness of tone by preserving vibration in the head and shell and preventing energy transfer to the hardware. The Saturn V features Mapex 6-Ply snares and toms, and 8-ply bass drums constructed of North American maple and walnut hybrid shells. These shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads so they will be ready to rock right out of the box.  You may have a hard time deciding on your favorite finish. And even if you can, you may not be sure whether you want to play them…or just stare at them.

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

This 1 up and 1 down shell pack with a 22" bass drum works for nearly every application on its own, or by expanding by adding components. A great all around core kit! Available in 4 classic finishes. 
 
FEATURES:
The Maple and Walnut hybrid shell produces a strong attack and a rich tone that projects well in live settings and tracks perfectly in the studio. It's the classic Saturn sound.
The SONIClear™ bearing edge simplifies the tuning process and enhances tone and tuning range.
With "traditional" sized bass drums and classic wrapped finishes, these drums deliver modern features with a classic look and sound.

Mapex SONIClearâ„¢ DEMO

Mapex wants drummers to spend less time tuning and be able to play more. The result of that mission is the latest innovation from Mapex: The SONIClear™ bearing edge, which allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range.
