I've been playing drums for around 25 years now. I've owned everything from Pearl Masters kits to Yamaha Recording Custom. I debated for a couple months what I wanted to try next. I finally settled on a Pro M kit from Mapex. To be honest, I really can't complain. The first thing you'll need to do however is put some good heads on these drums. The stock heads are absolutely horrible. I threw some remo coated emperors on the toms and a coated ambassador on the snare and it warmed this kit up 100 percent. The 12" mounted tom and 16" floor tom now sound as good as any "high end" kit I've ever owned. The maple snare that comes with the kit "14" x "7" is OK. With the new head, proper tuning, and a tiny bit of muting, it's really not that bad. I still prefer a brass snare drum, but this one will definitely get you by. The 22 x 20 bass drum sounds great. Cut a hole in your resonant head, throw a small blanket in there and play away. The hardware I am pleased with as well. I don't think it's quite the quality of Yamaha but for the money you can't go wrong. The free side snare that comes with it sounds pretty cool actually. I sold mine however, because I just don't use a side snare. Overall, I would recommend this kit for anyone who wants a very good sounding kit that looks very nice as well. You will not get booed off of any stages when you set this up I promise ya. However, I would compare this kit to Yamaha Tour Custom or Pearl Session SMX series. Go to your music store and listen and I think you'll like this kit. Good luck !

Had this kit for about 1 week, played it and tuned it everyday. First of all, the bass drum is not 24x18 - it is 24x17.5. Not that big of a difference but that is how deep it is, not 18". Tried different tuning ranges. The drums sounded best in the low range. The 18" floor tom did ROCK, thats for sure. But the bass drum was not all that great. The bass drum was not all that "meaty" and did not quite project anywhere near what I was expecting. The hardware wasn't great either. The boom stands were nice, but the double pedal (sorry for lack of a better term) sucked. What a horrible pedal. The worst I have EVER played (since 1983). The snare stand angle adjustment very is limited. I never tried the hi-hat stand. The 14x8" snare drum didn't sound good at any tuning range (high, med, low). The Black Panther 12" was ok, not bad, definitely not great. Overall, I did not keep this set, waste of money and space. Hope this helps.

Mapex Pro M

By Indi-7ry7A

from Hungary/Europe

I live in Hungary/Europe, and I'm a full-time drummer. I bought my first Pro M kit in 2002 for a secondary kit. That was the maple/basswood/maple shell-version, and became my main set so fast (a real workhorse, in the best aspect of the word) and I used it 3,5 years long without any problem - I have 120-150 concerts per year... And when I bought my second - all maple - Pro M kit, I knew at first glance, that this is a true professional series now, except those factory heads. But heads are come and go, so don't hesitate spending some money for new heads, and you will have a heavenly sound! Now I bought my third Pro M set, with 20x22" kick drum, and this is real killer. The 7x14" snare does not sound as good as my Hammered Black Panther does, but still a nice snare drum. And the hardware items are perfect for rehearsal/spare purposes, I still use my first stands from 2002 in the rehearsal room. Pro M rulez!

Perfect in the studio

By RockGearReviews.com

from Memphis, TN

Let me start out by saying that I'm not a drummer. I can play a little, but it's not my forte. I am a recording engineer with a great ear for drum tones. When my friend brought his Mapex kit into my studio, I quickly mic'd it up and got to work. What I found in this kit is consistent, quality tones that work for just about any kind of music.The kick drum was my absolute favorite. I've mic'd up a lot of kick drums, but this one stood out as top notch. It was the perfect combination of punchy and thumpy. If you've heard a great kick drum, you know what I mean. It hits you right in the chest, but the attack is good enough to cut right through the mix - with very little equalization.Every drum in this kit high quality. Put some decent heads on the shells, and you'll have a real killer. Guaranteed.Go to a music store, sit down at this set, and give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Great Kit

By D-LiNk

from Hemet, CA

This is a great kit folks. I've been playing on it for several months now and am very pleased. You will need to change heads ASAP! The kit is very hard to tune with stock heads. However this kit is a great kit overall for a great price.

Review

By Spaz-JDQ8A

from HorseShoe, NC

Before I purchased this set I had been shopping for close to a year (this is my 5th set ) and I must say this is my best find for quality, and sound for the price. While there are a few Cons let me start with the Pros: the bass drum is is big and powerful and plenty loud for any small to medium sized gig, the Black Panther snare is off the hook and very sharp sounding when tuned right. The other drums are decent. Cons: the Drum heads are terrible, the overtones are very bad, the double pedal is not good but its better than I expected, but overall this set is a great buy for the money.

Minimal effort results in outstanding value

By 18thHour

from Bethlehem, PA

Funny... my review is almost the opposite of the last one I read. I used an Evans emad2 head on the kick drum batter side and an Aquarian on the resonant side. Of over 15 kits I've owned by 5 different brands (including a Vistalite Bonham reissue)this has the best kick drum sound. Not only is it powerful sounding, but it's LOUD. I also really like the Panther snare. It has a unique sound that compliments any snare drum. The 8" wood snare was a but more difficult to get a good sound out of, but it did have a lot of power behind it as well. The hardware is definitely on the cheap side and the double pedal just flat out s*cks. I did, however, like the snare stand simply because I can adjust it to a lower setting than any other snare stand I own. Regardless, the value of this kit can't be beat. Maple shells at these sizes plus the extra snare make it worth the money. Just be prepared to buy some new heads and put a little time into getting the sounds you want. Fyi, I bought the caramel fade color and it looks really sharp.

mapex ROCK KIT

By KBCRASHMASTER

from DOWN SOUTH

Brutal sound. I like my 18" so much i wanted to keep it right by my side and not have to turn my body but my 16" would but too short to reach so to personalize it I made a wooden box to make the 16" fl. tom higher so i can have the 18" directly at my shoulder side and still reach the 16". I love all of the drums. I wish the 14" tom was 14"x14" b/c i love deep drums but the 14" still rocks!! its my favorite!

Mapex 5 piece

By drumnut

from prattville, AL

I shopped and compared for 2 1/2 months before puchasing this set. I could not find a higher quality maple kit with these sizes, hardware, and extras at this price anywhere else. The shells and bearing edges are well constructed.Lugs work and hold tune well. I found the hardware to be sturdy and versatile. The stand mounted tom holder works very well. All supplied heads,except snare,are extremely poor sounding.I can't believe Remo puts their name on them! The panther side snare is a "must have!" The transparent cherry finish had a few runs in the bass hoops, but beautiful otherwise.In my opinion the only things separating this kit from a high end, or custom kit are good quality heads and proper tuning. In fact, this kit rivals the sound of my friends Pearl masters kit,and believe me,he spent much,much,more.I've allways been a Gretsch fan, but the reason I went with Mapex over the Gretsch or Ludwig counterparts is the add on flexability.You can add any size tom, any time. You can rest assured that you will get your money's worth with this kit. It's a smart buy!

Too good

By manofthehour

from Rochester MN

The Ice Blue finish, to me, looks by far the best. It looks like beautiful little clouds melting together in a world of color. The sound is very nice and deep with a solid punch on the kick. To make the toms sound less bongish, I just took duct tape and made a ring around the outside of the head. The stock head seems alright on the kick, but to get the most from your tom's I'd get some remo sound control head's. All in all, good hardware, good value, great sounding drums, and impossible to look away from.
