Mapex Mars Series 5 Piece Rock Drum Set
Mapex Mars Rock drums are a less expensive alternative to Mapex's top-of-the-line Saturn drums, although it remains a great sounding kit with all birch shells; in fact, many drummers prefer the sound of birch over maple because it’s a bit more powerful. This kit features Mapex’s SONIClear bearing edge which allows the drums to speak loudly and create a lot of sound. Basically more of the bearing edge is exposed to the shell and this causes the shell to vibrate. This makes Mapex drums speak louder than most other drums, which is great for the metal genre. The black-plated tom hardware gives the Mars a tough look appropriate for the metal genre with the kits hardware overall being manufactured to be durable which allows the drums to ring freely. Just as with the Saturn drums, the Mars is mostly sold as a shell only pack with several color options available.
