What We Think

The Mapex Drum Company has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn.  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 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

The New Mapex Nodal Line Air Flow Venting Scheme gives Saturn a superior feel and just the right amount of resonance. Whether tuning up high for jazz and fusion or down deep for rock-n-roll, the unique Maple and Walnut shell composition, complete with SONIClear™ bearing edges, results in clear and focused toms and a bass drum that sounds bigger than it should.
