What We Think

Mapex’s Armory series is a mid-level offering for drummers who want to obtain rich, resonant tones without breaking the bank. Constructed from two outer plies of Birch and a two-ply Maple Core, these 7.2mm hybrid shells offer the bite of birch and balance of maple for a full, resonant tone with plenty of attack and projection. The drums are also cut with Mapex’s proprietary SONIClear bearing edge which allows the head to seat perfectly to the drum for an easy tuning process. 

New for 2018, the Purple Haze finish on this kit is sure to turn heads with its stealthy wood grain and black plated hardware. 

 

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

  • The Birch/Maple/Birch 6Ply 7.2mm shell with the new SONIClear(TM) Bearing Edge allows for the direct transmission of sound, reduces unwanted frequencies and provides a strong fundamental pitch and an effortless tuning experience especially at lower tunings.
  • This 5-Piece Shell pack includes 10" and 12" stand mounted rack toms, 14" and 16" floor tom,14" snare drum and 22"x18" Kick drum
  • The SONIClear(TM) tom suspension and floor tom feet increase overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune. 
  •  All Armory shell packs include the 14" x 5-1/2" Tomahawk Black-Plated Steel Snare. The Tomahawk produces a bright, focused and loud backbeat and adds style to all Armory shell packs.
  • This purchase includes a manufacturer trade-in offer for ANY of Mapex's Armory Series four other snare drums. You'll have two weeks after your Armory kit purchase to test out the Tomahawk and, if the Tomahawk snare doesn't fit your sound, you can trade it in directly with Mapex for one of the other four Armory Snare drums at no charge.

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.
