Mapex Mars 22″ Retro Fusion Crossover Shell Pack – Driftwood

£581.00

Description

American drum makers Mapex are well known for offering high quality and great value drum kits at every price point. Mars Birch 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 also withstand the harsh treatment a gigging kit needs to be able to take.

The all-birch 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. Birch has always been a popular wood for drum makers with its naturally EQ’d sound with a focus on low end and attack. These drums offer a powerful modern sound and some drummers might never find themselves looking to spend anymore.

This Crossover shell pack features a 22″ bass drum and a 1 up 2 down configuration that is ideal for players who want a powerful rock sound, with a single rack tom for closer positioning of their ride cymbal.

The Mapex Mars drum kits feature 6-ply, 100% birch shells that produce focussed, well-rounded sounds. The bass drum and floor toms offer enhanced punch while the rack tom projects brightness and colour. The matching snare drum brings the whole kit together and has a fast attack and versatile tones. The shells also feature Soniclear bearing edges that allow the head the perfect contact with the shell. This allows for consistent tuning and a stronger, deeper overall pitch. There are no toms mounted to the kick drum it allows it to resonate naturally and provide a deep low-end punch.

This kit is available in a variety of finishes and highly recommend them to beginners and intermediate players

The following discounts and deals are available on this product. You can use as many of these deals at one time as you like. Simply add this product to your basket first to see the discounted prices!

20% off all Stools when bought with drum kits

Many drum kits including this one don’t come with a stool included so we’ve set up this great offer so that you can choose your own one. You can pick from our whole catalogue of stools so if you decide to treat yourself to a really comfy one you can make a great saving! Our recommendation is the Pearl D-50 or the Custom Percussion Drum Throne

5% off all Cases and Bags when bought with a drum kit

If you plan to transport your drums in the future then a good set of cases or bags is a must have so we thought we’d save you some money when you bought them all at once with us. The Protection Racket American Fusion Drum Case Set are fantastic quality and will fit this drum kit perfectly. Check out our massive range of cases here

5% off all Silence Pads when bought with a drum kit

All too often we see people come back to us a week later looking for silence pads when they realise just how loud the drums really are. Save yourself some time and money by picking them up now if you think you’ll need them. There’s a huge range of Silence Pads but we recommend the QT American Fusion Silence Pads for this kit.
