Seamlessly blending vintage warmth and modern cut, these drums offer up open, warm undertones with a full-bodied character.
Deft, graceful and tasteful, this shell pack possesses a sophisticated glamour with a unique voice that is ideal for the skilled drummer looking to stand out from the crowd. Crafted from choice Walnut and Maple, these hybrid 6-ply shells consist of a Maple outer ply and Walnut interior and an exterior lacquered in polished Walnut. This combination of tonewood provides an authentic vintage sound with a modern attack, a cut that will slice through any live mix, and clarity and sensitivity perfect for studio performances. These brilliant shells also feature Mapex’s proprietary SONIClear technology - a system that ensures the highest level of tuning stability and maximum resonance.
This 5 piece shell pack consists of a 10 x 8'' rack tom, 12 x 9’’ rack tom, 16 x 16’’ floor tom, a 22 x 18’’ bass drum, and even comes with a 14 x 6.5’’ snare drum that a whip-cracking attack and a matching finish.
Mapex’s SONIClear bearing edge is a fantastic design feature and one of the most efficient solutions to head seating ever created. This kit features SONIClear rounded back-cut bearing edges that optimise the tuning capability of your drum and ensure that your drumheads are perfectly seated to produce the purest of tones. SONIClear edges also broaden the tuning range of each shell, allowing you to access deeper, rounder tones without losing nearfield response.
Released as a very limited run, Mapex has produced this exceptional kit to appeal to a wide variety of players - whatever your standard or style or genre, this kit will provide a luxurious feel that will mould around you and enhance your playing experience.
