Mapex's Armory Series is a mid-tier drum range in terms of price, but the build quality of the shells, their features and ultimately their sound makes them worthy of high-end praise. With many of their features deriving from the flagship Saturn series, the Armory shell pack is built for performance, with virtually no hindrances to your playing.
All Armory shells come with the SONIClear Bearing Edge as standard, a premium feature that enhances tone and projection. As the drumhead sits flatter, it improves contact with the shell itself to create a deeper vibration that gives a more solid response. Another advantage of the SONIClear design is that your tuning will be far more level and consistent, so even if you're a hard hitter, the shells won't detune quickly over a set.
As standard, all Mapex Armory shell packs include a Tomahawk snare drum. With a 1mm thick steel shell, this snare has a strong high-end presence that could cut through even the most frantic of mixes. Its material also lends itself to more articulate playing, bringing out ghost notes with supreme clarity so that the quieter dynamics and nuances of your playing style are noticed.
Here's what Mapex say about the Armory Rock Fusion Shell Pack:
Armory Series drums include a number of premium features borrowed from the Mapex Saturn IV line that will provide pro-level performance to players looking for an affordable but gig-worthy kit.
The SONIClear™ Bearing Edge is standard on all Armory shells and 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. For the serious player, the increased head to edge contact increases shell vibration, allowing the sonic nuances of the Hybrid shell to stand out.
The Armory Snare Drums are designed to complement any style of playing. The Tomahawk comes standard with all Armory kits. It is made with a 1mm steel shell and has penetrating accuracy and long range projection. The focused power of its rim shot is devastating.
