Mapex 3pc Saturn V MH Exotic Rock Shell Pack Natural Ash

Description:

The 1 up and 1 down set-up is designed for groove. The unique Maple and Walnut shell composition coupled with the SONIClear™ bearing edge results in a clear and focused rack tom, a fat and dense floor tom, and a bass drum with a balance of punch and boom. With its 12” and 16” tom sizes, this set-up is a great starting point for building a custom configured kit. Individual drums in a variety of sizes are available in each finish. Hardware, Snare, and Cymbals are not included.

What we think:

The Mapex Drum Company has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V.  Adding the SONIClear bearing edge to these drums clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of the Saturn’s Maple and Walnut hybrid shell.    This new bearing edge eliminates the age-old problem of rack toms not resonating to their full potential after they're mounted on a stand.  The tom holder also dramatically increases sustain and fullness of tone by preserving vibration in the head and shell and preventing energy transfer to the hardware. The Saturn V features Mapex 6-Ply snares and toms, and 8-ply bass drums constructed of North American maple and walnut hybrid shells. These shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads so they will be ready to rock right out of the box.  You may have a hard time deciding on your favorite finish. And even if you can, you may not be sure whether you want to play them…or just stare at them.

 

Manufacturer Description:

 The Mapex Drum Company has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V. The award winning SONIClear™ bearing edge and the new SONIClear™ tom holder are standard features on every Saturn V set.   
 
Mapex introduced the SONIClear™ bearing edge last year on their highly acclaimed Armory and Mars kits.  The positive response to the bearing edge was overwhelming and prompted countless questions from Mapex fans of: “When will Saturn be available with SONIClear™ bearing edges?” The wait is over.  Adding the SONIClear™ bearing edge to the Saturn V clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of Saturn’s most distinguished feature the Maple and Walnut hybrid shell.  

  • The 1 and 1 down set-up allows players to position their ride closer in, yet still delivers big toms sounds for groove-based rock. The commonly preferred 12x9”, 16x16”, and 22x18” sizes and the availability of a wide range of component sizes allow players to easily add to this kit to create their ideal set-up.
  • The Maple and Walnut hybrid shell produces a strong attack and a rich tone that projects well in live settings and tracks perfectly in the studio. It’s the classic Saturn sound.
  • The SONIClear™ bearing edge simplifies the tuning process and enhances tone and tuning range.
