Mapex 3pc Saturn V MH Exotic Rock Shell Pack Satin Black

Description:

These drums feature 6-ply North American walnut-maple hybrid shells (8-ply bass) built with two plies of maple around both sides of two inner plies of walnut. Adding the SONIClear bearing edge to the Saturn V clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of the maple and walnut shell.

What we think:

The 1 up and 1 down set-up is designed for groove. The unique Maple and Walnut shell 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. The deep figuring of the Burl grain is as distinctive as it is beautiful and makes this package sound as good as it looks. There is a thin coating of sealer over the inner shell wall surface which feels smooth to the touch. The finishing touch to each drum comes from the complementary black nickel plating, upon all of the hardware - perfect. This is a fantastic kit that will be equally happy on stage or in the studio.

Manufacturer Description:

 

 Together with respected artists around the globe, Mapex reimagined their flagship line with the Saturn IV. Now the Mapex team has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V. These drums feature 6-ply North American walnut-maple hybrid shells (8-ply bass) built with two plies of maple around both sides of two inner plies of walnut.

  • 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.
