New Mapex Armory Drum Kit At NAMM 2014

Posted by Maisie . on 24th 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 'Armory' and 'Mars' and they're pretty damn impressive!

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

Mapex Armory Drum Kits.

The new Armory drum kits have been built using a number of top-end features from the current Mapex Saturn IV series including SONIClear Suspension System for the rack toms. This innovative tom mount system increases the drums resonance by preserving vibration in the drum heads brining an overall better sound... Clever! The Mapex Armory drum kits also have many new features such as the SONIClear Bearing Edge. Many audio tests have been carried out comparing a drums typical bearing edge with the SONIClear bearing edge and the results are remarkable! Tests show that when both comparable drums are tuned to the same pitch and recording identically, the SONIClear edge drums produce a much larger waveform, right from the initial strike. It has also been proven that drums with the SONIClear edge are quicker and easier to tune 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 Armory drum kits have been built to a premium standard, providing you with a professional level performance but without the huge price tag. These new Mapex drum kits are designed to complement any style of playing - Gig-worthy, affordable drum kits!

Constructed from 6ply 7.2mm Birch/Maple/Birch Hybrid drum shells, available in popular drum configurations and complete with a choice of 7 outstanding finishes, the Mapex Armory is everyones drum kit!

Mapex Armory Finishes...

Transparent Black

A deep black, high gloss lacquer with the natural grain of the drum shell shining though. Combined with black drum fittings, the Armory drum kit in transparent black means business!


Transparent Walnut

Similar to the transparent black, the transparent walnut finish allows the natural grain to show through creating a simple, yet beautiful effect.

Magma Red

Red to black fade with a sparkle combined with black hardware?!...Oh yeah!


Mantis Green

Now here's something a bit different! A warm olive green satin finish that will definitely turn heads! The contrast between the green and black hardware looks a-ma-zing!

Photon Blue

If you love being centre of attention, the Armory photon blue is the finish for you! An attractive blue to black sparkle fade... Boom!

Cordovan Red

A lovely satin red lacquer with a sneaky peak of the marbling that gives this classic colour. Truly beautiful.


Arctic White

Complete with chrome fittings, this white drum kit looks lovely!

Each of these Mapex drum kits will be available on the drumshop website very soon!
