The Mapex Meridian Maple is high quality professional standard drum kit. Maple is well known for its fantastic tonal qualities, in particular a great snappy and punchy tone that's ideal from drums!
We love this kit. When you play it you can't help but feel instantly empowered and ready to take over the world. Sitting behind the monstrous 22x20 bass drum is like wielding the power of a cannon (perhaps a little less dangerous yes) but it remains tight and responsive. You are given a huge dynamic range to play with, opening up creative possibilities not before experienced.
The shallow 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms attack at pitches that sit way above the kick and cut through those massive frequencies whilst the shallower 16x14 floor tom punches with attack whilst keeping it's lower end tone and drive. The all Maple 14x5.5 snare drum sits front and centre and will tune effortlessly to give the sound you want either low and loose or tight and high.
The bass drum is un-drilled to maximise resonance, likewise, the rack toms are mounted separately for limitless positioning possibility and ultimate resonance.

Here's what Mapex Say about the Meridian Maple Drum Kit
Meridian Maple ushers in a new level of quality and functionality in mid-level, all Maple drum sets. With a completely new lug and redesigned lightweight isolated tom mounting system, the Meridian series features bright and resonant all Maple shells in a wide selection of lacquered and covered finishes.
Mapex's newly designed Isolated Tom Mount System is significantly lighter in weight and lower in profile than before and is more easily mounted and adjusted. The 7ply All-Maple shells resonate freely with minimal contact from hardware components.
Each Meridian Maple set is proudly finished with an eight coat, high gloss, hand-rubbed lacquer that's more often only kept exclusively for custom, high end sets.
