What We Think

Mapex’s Mars Series of drums offer pro-level sounds at intermediate-level prices. These drums are built with 100% Birch shells, offering a fast attack with crystal-clear tones and lively stick rebound. One of the most impressive features of this kit is also the most important sound-wise: the bearing edge.  Intermediate-level drums have historically been plagued by poorly-cut edges and inconsistent tuning, and Mapex eliminated that problem wholesale with the introduction of the SONIClear bearing edge. These proprietary edges allow drumheads to sit flatter and more evenly-tensioned across the drum, making tuning a breeze. The professional tones and sleek looks of this kit are not what you’d expect at this price-point, but sometimes the best drums defy expectations.

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

The SONIClear tom suspension and floor tom feet (simiar to the Saturn IV system) increase overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune. Additionally, the 2-up and 1-down configuration keeps all the toms within easy reach while the extra deep bass drum produces a powerful, yet naturally equalized tone.

 

  • This 5-piece shell pack includes10”and12” mounted rack toms, 16” floor tom, 14” snare drum and a 22”x18” kick.
  • 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.
