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.

FEATURES
  • Birch 6-ply 7.2mm shell
  • SONIClear bearing edge
  • SONIClear tom suspension
  • Saturn IV style lug
  • Matching snare drum
  • Configuration:
  • Kick drum: 22 x 18"
  • Mounted toms: 12 x 8"
  • Floor tom: 14 x 12" and 16 x 14"
  • Matching snare: 14 x 6-1/2"

Mars will take you over the edge...and beyond. Order today.

    Comments about Mapex Mars Series 5-Piece Crossover Shell Pack:

    The quality of the kit is well made especially for the price range. The only negative is the stock heads. After replacing them with Remo 360 Hydros the sound quality was right up there with my Gretsch set.

    good kit for $$$

    Comments about Mapex Mars Series 5-Piece Crossover Shell Pack:

    a good sounding and looking kit for the $$$...my only complaint is that, from the factory, the heads were all way too tight, and once a head is stretched, it will need replaced

      Comments about Mapex Mars Series 5-Piece Crossover Shell Pack:

      Sounds so great. Owned a pearl export, and a pdp set, this one leaves them in the dust. Even the stock heads sound great. All was very easy to assemble, and looks spectacular in night wood. Very powerful kick/floor toms, very melodic rack tom and the snare is great too

      Comments about Mapex Mars Series 5-Piece Crossover Shell Pack:

      I've owned several drum sets in my life but this takes the cake. The sound is incredible. These drums are worth far more than they are charging. Right out of the box these sounded great and they were easy to tune. I have heard mediocre reviews about Mapex in the past but the are PRO drums at mid/entry prices. I am extremely happy with this purchase. I got the Nightwood finish and they look great.
