Mapex Mars Maple 5-Piece 22″ Rock Shell Pack – Glossy Amber



American drum makers Mapex are well known for offering high quality and great value drum kits at every price point. Mars Maple is part of Mapex’s intermediate Mars range, a step up from the Mars Birch series, 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 also withstand the harsh treatment a gigging kit needs to be able to take.

Mapex Mars Maple kits feature 100% European Maple which emits buttery, classic and warm maple tone transmitted through beautifully lacquered 7-ply, 7.2mm shells for a sound that will launch your drumming to the next level and will command the attention of your bandmates as they get into your groove.

This shell pack features a 22″ bass drum and modern rock sizes for the toms. This configuration offers a blend of power and versatility well-suited for the drummer needing a portable, great sounding kit. It is finished in a durable Glossy Amber lacquer.

The all-Maple shells of Mars Maple 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 SONIClear™ tom suspension also increases overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune.

Maple is a top choice for drum makers around the world, producing an even amount of high and mid-level tones with a slightly warmer low-end. And it’s because of this balance between brightness and warmth that maple is great when used for jazz, rock, and pop. Maple drums tend to blend into mixes if they’re not tuned tightly, with the potential to have a huge sound that works well for hard hitters.
