Mapex mars

The Mars Series offers shallow depth 100% Birch shells with tone a plenty.

Fast attack, powerful punch and fast decay is exactly what you need from Birch and that is what Mars delivers, when you hear it you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re listening to a kit with an extra digit on the price.

Looking at them they demand further inspection, it’s a wood grain but with an intriguing depth in vertical, bold grains set off by deep, earthy natural feeling colour, their names alone prick the ears – Bloodwood, Bonewood, Nightwood and Smokewood, have a look, it’ll make sense. 

Mars shells are completed with the new SONIClear™ Bearing Edge as found on the Armory series. SONIClear  allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell, resulting in a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and significantly expanded tuning range.

Lift the shells out of the box for the first time and you’ll see what we mean. Head, hoop, rods, a few turns of the drum key and your set, it really is that easy.

These drums are designed to put as little between you and your playing.

Mars kits are supplied as shell packs but are best paired with the specifically designed, colour matched hardware packs. Lightweight yet highly functional stands and simple but sturdy pedals that will serve the needs of gigging drummers needing to lighten their load or younger players looking to make a major upgrade.

Colour matched hardware packs are available on a special 'paired' purchase program through all UK stores to ensure best pricing for both kit and hardware when purchased together.
