OVERVIEW

This Black Knight of drums offers balanced punch with big projection and resilient response.

The Raven Shell Pack by Mapex is the first in a series of Meridian Black kits with "Player Designed" features directly filling the needs of the modern rock drummer. These special edition drums will be limited in quantity, specific in its configuration, and unique in its look.

With shells featuring a powerful fusion of Birch and Maple, these drums crank out low and dark tones with a balanced attack. The inside of the shells feature the new "Interblack" finish that enhances resonance, tone consistency and projection. The 22 x 20" Bass drum delivers massive low end and the shallow toms speak fast. The kit boasts one tom up, 12 x 8", and two toms down, a 14 x 12" and 16 x 14", so the player can bring in their ride cymbal close for optimal performance. A 14 x 6" snare drum completes the set.

The shells come wrapped in a Raven-sheen black wood grain finish, fitted with satin black hardware and are topped with Remo drumheads. This 5 piece kit is all a player needs to be heard loud and clear, but a 10 x 7" add-on tom is available for even more rock n' roll noise.

FEATURES
  • Birch/Maple shells
  • Interblack interior shell finish
  • Satin black hardware
  • Black wood grain wrapped finish

Black as night and delivering a curious volume of forgotten lore. Order today.

    Comments about Mapex Meridian Black Raven Limited Edition 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    My first Mapex kit and I love it! It sounds big and boomy but with a sharp attack. The look is sexy times ten. Great feeling getting complements for both the look and the sound everytime I take her out. I also own the Obsidian which is also a great kit. Well done Mapex!

      Comments about Mapex Meridian Black Raven Limited Edition 5-Piece Shell Pack:

      First of all, this kit is downright sexy.
      More importantly though is the sound that this kit promised to deliver. Very good for low tuning. The toms and bass drum have incredible resonance. i.e. the floor tom legs have spring "shoes" allowing the sound to ring out rather than get absorbed into the floor. I dig the solitary bass drum. No vibrating hardware. Depending on your taste, you may want to replace the factory heads. It sure would've been sweet if it had a real wood grain finish. The wrap isn't bad though.

      Comments about Mapex Meridian Black Raven Limited Edition 5-Piece Shell Pack:

      After falling in love with Mapex it self, I didn't have any intetions on purchising a brand new drumset! I'm 18 years old and been learning how to play drums for almost 16 years now. I bought my first Mapex drumset at the age of 14, Mpex M Birch! I been playing on that set ever since. Mapex knows what sounds good, they are a very trustable company!! As i was messing around with MyDynasty, i came accross this beautiful set! Given the name "The Raven" drew my eyes! It matches every aspect of what you would think "The Raven" would be! Edger Allen Poe is my most favorite writer, and his piece, "The Raven" is my favorite story! This set completes the darkness of his story! I play hard rock/mainstream type of music! This set is just mine blowing! A good ear for tuning is needed with the heads it comes with and the factory heads are not that sinsitve, but they do project well! The black interior finish gives it a nice deep consistent tone, i never seen anything like that!! It's just a great set! The crowd loves it, I love it! I recommend this set!
