OVERVIEW

A no-nonsense, high-end performance drum set at a mid-range price.

The Mars Series Shell Pack offers 100% birch, 6-ply and 7.2mm shells with shallow depths complete with the SONIClear bearing edge, producing a fast and clear tone with a quick stick rebound. The SONIClear bearing edge allows for the direct transmission of sound, reduces unwanted frequencies and provides a strong fundamental pitch and an effortless tuning experience especially at lower tunings.

The SONIClear tom suspension and floor tom feet (simiar to the Saturn IV system) increase overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune. Additionally, the 2-up and 1-down configuration keeps all the toms within easy reach while the extra deep bass drum produces a powerful, yet naturally equalized tone.

Additionally, a matching Mars Snare Drum gives a unified look to the set while providing a solid fundamental crack.

    Comments about Mapex Mars 5-Piece Rock Shell Pack:

    I wanted to get this kit, but the finishes (all of them) are ugly and cheap looking. I prefer lacquer, but would have bought, if they looked good. I know looks aren't as important as sound, but I couldn't spend money on something so ugly. That being said, they sound nice.

        Comments about Mapex Mars 5-Piece Rock Shell Pack:

        The new Mapex Mars is the most feature-packed, best looking, best sounding, best built kit in it's price range. It easily competes with higher end kits for pure sound. The combination of 100% birch shells and the new Soniclear Bearing Edge produce a thick, punchy, and deep tone with an incredibly broad tuning range and controlled sustain. The drum/hardware color combinations, the new Saturn style "shield" lugs, the Soniclear Bearing Edge and Soniclear Tom Mounts are killer. If you're considering a PDP Concept, Tama Silverstar, or Pearl Export, check these out.
