M Birch Fusion 5-Piece Drum Set with Free 8" Tom

I receved this kit on christmas of 2007. awsome quality, the snare is loud, and just awsome. The toms are warm and can produce alot of sound. The birch gives the toms a good warm sound. I reccomond remo coated Ammbassador on the snare, and Remo Pinstripes or Evans EC2 clears on the toms. The bass drum is loud and has a PHAT sound. It sounds good with the factory head. And is breathtaking with and AQUARIAN SUPER KICK 2. This kit has the quality of brands like DW, without the price.
This has to be the best drum set I've ever played, and I'm not just saying that because I own it. The hardware is amazing, you can convert the boom stands to straight stands if you want and it has memorylock so once you have it set it's good to go. The bass drum delivers a great kick and the toms and snare project extremely well with a crisp sound. The heads are factory heads but fortunetly they are indeed Remo heads. Buy this set, you won't play any other.
A great set, the finishes are all nice, the hardware holds up, and most importantly they sound great. The tone is nice, it doesn't sustain much but the punch is huge, the power of birch. I bought the set about a week ago and I'm really impressed so far, I haven't found a single thing about it that I dislike. I guess all that really needs to be said is that its an all around great intermediate set that is well worth the money.
You can have some beater for your practice kit. This will suddenly turn into your main and it won't break the bank. Quality woods, beautiful finish. Definitely much better than any "intermediate/mid-level" kit you will ever find. Tasty snare, thunderous bass drum. Of course, Mapex isn't known for heads, but you can still obtain a decent sound with the ones included. Outfit this kit with some cymbals and get on the road. Great for recording or live. Huge projection!
Great kit all together. The looks are great and sound is what I was looking for. It's definitely a fusion set with a high end sound. The toms are piercing with great projection. Snare is crisp and the bass drum is deep and loud.
Well I have played drums about 20 years and have owned MULTIPLE sets of drums such as...DW,Tama Starclassic,Pearl Exports, Taye Tour Pro etc. Let me tell you these drums for the money will not disappoint you one bit. I will not say that these drums will BEAT the DW's or Starclassics that I used to own, but I can assure you they sound EVERY BIT as good. Trust me folks you can't go wrong with these drums. I use Aquarian Response II heads on toms and they sound absolutely awesome.
I bought this kit to replace my old one and it is simply amazing, and yes it sounds as good as it looks, it even comes with somewhat decent heads. Mapex offers the best quality for the price, great job Mapex.
This is the first kit I have purchased in 16 years so I was a little out of touch with the sound quality of the drums that were out there. I did some research and found the Mapex kit made of birch, that came with stands and an extra tom and I had to give it a shot. I am very impressed with this kit! It looks beautiful and sounds great, even with the heads that come with it. The snare is pretty average, but still good quality. I plan on upgrading later. This kit is a great value! Buy with confidence!
I got these drums just a few weeks ago and WOW!! Amazing sound on every level, even with the factory heads! The great thing about birch is that it has great potential for awesome high and low end sound. The 14" floating floor tom provides a great low while the 8" provides the punchy, high sounds. The snare is great out of the box and even better with a Remo weatherking head. The bass is like a cannon when an evans EMAD head. Overall great quality sound and durability and an INCREDIBLY low price!!!
I've played drums at church for 3 years now and this set is the best so for....Before I got these I had a set of Gretsch, They were ok but Once I got these out of the box and ready to go,the sound was 100% better. I upgraded with a Gibralter v-rack, 11 zildjian titamium symbals, with a mapex double-bass pedal...No set i've played in my life can compare to these. I say if you want a nice set of drums get Mapex.
