New Mapex Mars Drum Kit At NAMM 2014

Posted by Maisie . on 25th January 2014

Mapex NAMM 2014!

I’ve just been told from the guys out at NAMM that Mapex have released two brand new drum kit series 'Mars’ and 'Armory’ and they’re pretty damn impressive!

Read below about the new for 2014 Mars drum kits or click here to read more about Mapex’s new Armory series!

Mapex Mars Drum Kits.

If you’ve already read my previous blog about the new Armory drum kits, you’ll know all about the new SONIClear bearing edge from Mapex? Well, the new Mapex Mars drums feature SONIClear too! The SONIClear edge drums have increased shell resonance and optimal tonal clarity. The SONIClear edges also make it quicker and easier for you to tune your drums as the drum head is allowed to sit flush to the drum. Whereas with typical bearing edge the head is sat too high which can make turning difficult and also results in poor shell resonance.

The new Mars drum kit is considered a mid-range drum kit with premium qualities. Many features of the Mapex Mars drum kit are taken from the existing Saturn IV series. These top-end features combined with the 6-ply 100% Birch drum shells make the Mapex Mars an all-round great drum kit and definite value for money!
