Mars is Mapex’s intermediate range offering an excellent option for drummers looking to make the step up from a starter to kit to something that will not only look and sound great on stage but will also withstand the harsh treatment a gigging kit needs to be able to take.

The shells of Mapex Mars kits benefit from the Mapex SONIClear bearing edge technology that features on Mapex’s higher end drum kits. SONIClear bearing edges increase contact between the head and shell resulting in a truer fundamental pitch and easier tuning. The latest generation of Mars kits are now available in Birch or Maple so that drummers can choose between the tight focus of birch and the natural warmth of Maple.
