Ideal for all professional music applications, both live and in studio.
Together with respected artists around the globe, Mapex has re-imagined their flagship Saturn line. The Mapex team has created the next evolution of the Saturn line, featuring a host of upgrades including: tom suspension mounts, low-contact bass drum claws, Memory Mark bass drum spurs, new style-badge and lug casing, free-floating bass drum mount (optional), and some striking new finishes.
Created to perform in any music genre and featuring a unique, thin maple and walnut shell, the Mapex Saturn produces deep, rich tone recognized by thousands of players as the Mapex Sound. This Saturn model features Mapex 6-ply toms, and 8-ply bass drums constructed of North American maple and walnut hybrid shells with chrome hardware.
The shallow rack and floor toms are built for speed. They produce a quicker stick rebound that makes fast fills easier to play and a short and bright tone that gets out of the way before you play the next note. The shallow rack toms keep them within easy reach while the extra-deep bass drum produces a powerful punch that will kick you in the chest.
Additionally, these shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads. Cymbals, hardware and snare sold separately.

Comments about Mapex Saturn IV Exotic 4-Piece Shell Pack with Deep Bass and Shallow Toms:
I've been playing drums over 15 years, 10 of those professionally. I've owned numerous sets from CB (first set, junk lol), Tama, PDP, Gretsch in every wood: birch, maple, bubinga. This set is by far the best sounding and looking one I've ever owned. I bought the Trans. Ash Burl finish and this thing is gorgeous. I get so many compliments on its looks every gig. Not only does this thing look great it sounds awesome. This was exactly the sound I was looking for; I've always been a fan of maple wood over any other. The small tom sizes make high tom placement so easy, and the floor and bass boom. I run a 1 up 1 down configuration and the drums are exactly where I want them.
Unless you have 3 grand or more to spend on a DW I would recommend this set all day, especially for the price.
