Mapex Armory 22″ Rock 5 Piece Shell Pack – Night Sky Burst



With Mapex Hybrid Shell Technology the Mapex Armory 22″ Rock 5 Piece Shell Pack – Night Sky Burst packs power and tonal depth in one great looking package.

The Armory range from American drum makers Mapex is an exciting range of drum kits, snare drums and hardware. Aimed at the semi pro player, Armory offer a lot of professional features at a competitive price point. Making use of a hybrid shell of maple and birch, Armory drum kits produce a satisfying blend of warmth and attack which make them hugely versatile for gigging drummers of any style. All Mapex Armory drum kits are completed with stunning transparent lacquered finishes with a visible olive wood grain and are available in 5 or 6 piece shell packs including a Mapex Armory, Tomahawk snare drum.

This shell pack features a 22″ bass drum and modern rock sizes for the toms this is a versatile setup suitable for most styles particularly popular with modern pop and rock drummers. It is finished in Night Sky Burst.

The Shells

Mapex have built their name on hybrid shell technology and the Armory benefits from this wealth of knowledge. A 6 ply blend of Birch/Maple/Birch produces tones that benefit from both the natural warmth of maple and the natural punch and bite of birch.

The Finish

High Gloss lacquer finishes come as standard on all Armory kits providing a stunning eye catching finish in a wide variety of colour. The laquer is applied over an olivewood outer veneer which allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through.

Soniclear Technology

Soniclear bearing edges allow the drum head to sit flatter which provides easier tuning and also helps the resonance transfer from the head into the shell allowing it to reach its full sonic potential. Soniclear tom mounts and floor tom legs hold the drum with less resistance allowing the shell to reverberate freely and reducing the amount of resonance lost into the hardware.
