Once again Mapex Drums have come up trumps, great image, great quality, and overall covering all bases!! First things first, they have a new brand logo! Very cool, a mix of modern and retro!!
The big thing to get excited about is their new Retrosonic drum kit which is born from the Black Panther range. An all walnut drum shell, beautifully crafted tube lugs and topped off by the Mapex Sonic Saver hoops. The Retrosonic comes as a three piece shell pack consisting of 22” x 16” bass drum, 12” x 8” tom and a 16” x 16” floor tom, however it does come with the Mapex S1000 snare drum stand to mount the tom. This Mapex Retrosonic drum kit truly is stunning, built to Mapex’s usual very high standards! With only 100 being produced, this will be a very sought after kit!!
Also new this year is the addition of some great new colours in the Meridian and Saturn series. In the Meridian is the Supernova Burst Lacquer (red to black sparkle burst) and Galaxy Sparkle Fade (as it sounds), and too many to mention in the Saturn range.
Another brilliant angle that Mapex have taken this year is their MyDentity range, this is a completely custom range allowing you to design your own drum kit online and 5 weeks later be on you doorstep!! However, sadly this is only available in the US at the moment.
Along with a new hardware range, Mapex have really come up trumps once again! We can’t wait to get all the new gear in the shop, however it won’t stay here long at all!!
