Mapex Saturn V MH Fusion 4pc Shell Pack Granite Sparkle

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 Americn 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:

This 2 up and 1 down shell pack with 20” bass drum finds the balance between versatility and practicality. It can be tuned in a wide range, whether up high for jazz and fusion or down deep for rock-n-roll. The unique Maple and Walnut shell composition coupled with the SONIClear™ bearing edge results in clear and focused toms and a bass drum that sounds bigger than its size would suggest. 

Manufacturer Description:

 

  • This fusion style set-up featuring standard depth 10”, 12” and 14” toms can be tuned high for jazz and fusion or low for rock and pop. The 20x16” bass drum is great for portability and allows rack toms to be positioned lower, but still has the power and punch needed for a big sound.
  • 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. The SONIClear? single tom holders increase rack tom resonance and clarity.
