The 8-ply, 7.2mm all-birch shells of the Mapex M Birch Standard Drum Set deliver an incredible high-end attack, a narrower midrange, and plenty of bottom end punch. The shells have an exterior maple veneer finished with 8 coats of hand-applied transparent lacquer. Complemented by the matching lacquered bass drum hoops, this kit has a gorgeous appearance that's sure to shimmer under the lights. The Isolated Tom System protects the shell's integrity and allows the toms to vibrate freely, ensuring maximum projection and resonance. OS Cymbal Accentuators create enhanced cymbal sustain, and the 500 Series double-braced Performing Artist hardware means your components stay in place, however heavy a hitter you are. Recent improvements include a boom stand with a retractable tilter and a footboard stabilizer for the bass drum pedal. Remo heads all around mean you're ready to go straight out of the box! Cymbals not included.

I just wanted to say that I purchased the M Birch set it really is a nice set. I haven't played for many years and have recently decided to start playing again. I replaced the heads with Remo Fiberskyns and they sound really good. The set came with a 14" mounted tom in lieu of a floor tom; it isn't bad but would rather have had a 16". I am looking forward to many hours of playing...ROCK ON!
I've been playing drums for about 9 years now, and just recently sold my Mapex Venus Series to upgrade to the M Birch... Wonderful set, of course the factory heads are well factory heads, so changing them would be a better idea. The Black Forest Green is a beautiful finish, and like always Mapex lives up to its name. Great buy for either the beginner drummer, or the expirienced one as well...
This is the best drumset I've ever played!!!!! It's so good! The snare cracks! It's perfect. I would recommend Wuhan cymbals for this set. You could also get double bass but you'll be a much better drummer if you don't get the double bass until later. Put 'em together, the best drum set of all time!!!!
I have had this set for a few monts now, and it is by far one if not the best that I've ever played on. The only problem that I had was that it took a wile to get my snare to not to rattle when the toms were hit. Other than that, you may want to get heads for it if you are an active musician.Also these drums are very durable. I have dropped one of my toms and I cant find a single blimish of dent.
I've been a musician for a coupple of years and was ready to upgrade from my old set. Well I chose this and it was a really great choice. The drums i.t.s. is really great and allows the drum shell to vibrate freely. They have a great sound and were worth every cent!
These drums are absolutely the BEST! These guys have got it right. Great product for a great price. The colors are awesome. I got Black Forest Cherry and I constantly get compliments. I have played Ludwig, Pearl, Pacific, Tama, you name it. These are the best! I believe Mapex will be surpassing them all very shortly. Throw on some Remo heads and Remo dampening rings, and you are in the zone!
I got my Mapex M Birch for christmas this last year, and i have played it every single day (that i could) since! There are only a few flaws in it-The bass drum needs muffling (just put a blanket in it and its GREAT!), The snare head gets worn out and loses it's texture within an hour of playing (remo weatherking), and the cymbal stands aren't that nice. The Hi-Hat one is fine, The Crash stand isn't a boom, and the boom stand isn't very convenient, because it has 2 different "knobs?" (i dont know the right word for it!) that adjust it, and it just gets kind of confusing, but if you can get it right, they hold the cymbals completely fine! My set is the nicest one i've Ever played on. Better than any Pearl Export i've played on (4 of them) and even better than a masters custom i've played on!
This is one killer set man. The heads hold up great. The pedals feel smooth and slick. The hardware is really sturdy. The bass can give you a nice deep thump. I love my Mapex. I totally suggest this one to any one that wants a great sound.
I have the Black Forest Green and these two new colors look way better in person. The photos are not very good. The Birch sounds a little different but I love it. The stock heads arent bad with proper tuning. The sound out of the box is very nice. The Hardware is awesome! The Pedal has been upgraded from previous years. This is exactly what I wanted.
i put on a set of evans hydralic blue skins and its sounded so deep and sweet plus the skins matched the spphire colour. i play mostly metal so i put on a dw 7000 double kick pedal and this set will rip. i love these drums and never want to get rid of them. low price for great quality.
