Versatile hybrid maple/birch shells with an upgraded Armory series snare.
The Armory Series by Mapex features a 6-ply birch and maple that outputs a warm, focused tone. SONIClear™ bearing edge, tom suspension and floor tom legs allow the heads to sit flat and increase shell resonance. Mapex Saturn IV-style lugs ensure a firm tune while providing a low-mass aesthetic.
In addition, all Armory shell packs include the 14” x 5-1/2" Tomahawk Black-Plated snare. The Tomahawk produces a bright, focused and loud backbeat and adds style to all Armory shell packs.
If the Tomahawk doesn't fit your style or sound, feel free to trade in the drum for ANY of Mapex's Armory Series four other snare drums.
An armory that doubles as an arsenal. Wield it today.

Comments about Mapex Armory Series 6-Piece Studioease Shell Pack:
I have had this kit for 5 days now, and i am VERY pleased. The first very noticeable feature of these drums are the lacquer finish (I own the photon blue finish,very nice and sparkles awesome under lights.) the set up was easy, and with the Soniclear bearing edges i barely tuned them and they sound awesome (with stock heads on!) The Tomahawk steel snare has a nice cutting sound and comes with a coated ambassador on it. The bass drum is probably my favorite part. It has a very deep, fat, but full sound that you can only get with an 18X22. All in all, this kit is a high quality kit for a great price, and will give you a nice punchy sound, and the toms can sound either very deep and modern or traditional (depends on heads.)you don't need to spend thousands on shells when you can get maple/birch shells for under a grand. add on some decent cymbals, and your sure to have a stellar sounding kit. This kit is perfect for live, but would make a just as good studio kit as well, with its nice balanced tones. I highly recommend this drum set.
