The Mapex Mars series offers great versatility, for an extremely reasonable price. It’s a great all-rounder which is suited to a wide range of different genres, meaning its ideal if you like to play differing styles regularly. This variation includes four pieces – a bass drum, snare, one rack tom and a floor tom – with chrome hardware and a rustic looking Driftwood finish.
100% Birch Shells
The birch shell construction delivers a mixture of pure power and varied tones. This is down to the 7.2mm shells (with relatively shallow depths) which results in a quick, clear sound and fast stick rebound. The bass drum especially sounds massive, but still maintains a naturally equalised tone.
A clever SONIClear bearing edge ensures the direct transmission of sound and also reduces any unwanted frequencies you may have found with other shells. It also makes tuning a far easier experience, and offers a stronger fundamental pitch. Add this together with SONIClear floor tom feet and tom suspension and you’ve got an increase in the drum’s resonance. They work by preserving the vibration in the shell and preventing stress reaching the tension rods – while also helping your heads to stay in tune.
This kit is smaller and more compact than other configurations in the Mapex Mars range. This makes it perfect if you gig on a regular basis, as it is super quick to tear down and set-up again. The size of the drums also really suits smaller venues (which might suffer from reduced stage space).
