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. 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.
This 2 up and 1 down configuration keeps all the toms within easy reach, yet still delivers a highly versatile sound because of its standard drum depths. The unique Maple and Walnut shell composition coupled with the SONIClear™ bearing edge results in clear and focused rack toms, fat and dense floor toms, and bass drums with a balance of punch and boom.
