Mapex Saturn Evolution 22″ 5 Piece Birch/Walnut Shell Pack – Tuscan Yellow



The classic Saturn sound evolved.

The latest evolution in Mapex’s Saturn Series features a variety of shells, providing an unrivalled tonal range. Choose from Birch/Walnut for cutting, controlled attack or Maple/Walnut for warmth and depth. Want the best of both worlds? Then go for a hybrid blend with a Maple/Walnut kick and Birch/Walnut toms.  Chamber Specific Shell Construction creates a defined and satisfying sonic character. It’s unique Halo suspension mounting system gives your rack toms their own rings of Saturn and allows you to control the resonance. Go dry and controlled or go for epic rock resonance, the choice is yours.

The Mapex Saturn Evolution is available in a wide variety of classy finishes and configurations to suit your style and taste.  The finish on this kit is the stunning, Tuscan Yellow.

The brand new Saturn Evolution Series features a full range of sizes and blends that push the classic Mapex sound to its full potential. Hybrid shells of Birch/Walnut and Maple/Walnut are lacquered in a stunning range of finishes.

The order of the ply blend in the Evolutions hybrid shell has been adjusted to move the Walnut element to the central of the bearing edge, bringing a warmer, slightly darker voice to the range.

Rack and Floor Toms up to 16” are Dual Vented on the nodal line, while BassDrums and 18” Floors are all Quad Vented to allow frequencies to be evenly distributed.

Floor Toms all feature the new 90 degree leg, a feature from the Design Lab range, with new gaskets and Sonic Pedestal feet allowing the shells to resonate freely.

The new Mapex Halo mount features on all Saturn Evolution toms, and provides freedom of full resonance. Using a lateral and unique “under lug-line” suspension system, this groundbreaking isolation mount, allows the shell to speak with an open, pure tone, without the stiffness usually associated with under hoop mounting systems.
