A wide palette of painterly drum sounds are yours with this gorgeous Saturn drum set.
The drum artisans at Mapex match the finest, thinnest plies of North American Maple with a selection of dark, rich walnut. The result is beautifully hand-crafted drums with a remarkably wide tonal range. The 7-piece Saturn set is exacting enough for any and all studio applications and has been thoroughly road tested by nearly every professional artist on the Mapex roster.
Every Saturn component on the SW7287UTX set is finished with eight hand-rubbed coats of high gloss lacquer. This unique finishing process gives the drum a beautifully deep, high gloss, protective shine.
Saturn toms and snare drums are equipped with exclusive Mapex Powerhoops. Made from 2.3mm chrome steel, the Mapex Powerhoop provides less resistance without adding unnecessary weight that may mute the drum. The tom's mount is secured via the lugs and is not drilled directly into the shell. The Mapex I.T.S. System allows the shell to vibrate freely, allowing for maximum projection and resonance. Saturn floor I.T.S. tom legs are isolated from the shell and include spring loaded feet, that enhance sustain and increase projection.
The bass drum's non-penetrating double tom holder features multi-directional adjustment for precise set-up. The tom holder mechanism is also completely removable for players that prefer tom stands. The Saturn's non-penetrating I.T.S. telescopic bass drum spurs isolate the shell from additional holes and distribute the weight of the drum across existing lug mounts. All maple, lacquer finished bass drum hoops are secured by low-profile, cushioned bass drum claw hooks.
Mapex's low mass lugs are secured to the shell via only one point of penetration. Fewer holes in the drum shell means less vibratory interruption, resulting in truer tone and unimpeded resonance.
Saturn drum kits include double-braced 750-Series Mapex hardware. Sturdy, flexible and surprisingly lightweight, the 750 Series is ideal for touring players. All Saturn tom toms are equipped with Remo Emperor drumheads.

I've had a kit similar to this since 11/07. I bought the Blue Galaxy Burst version. After using Pearl, ddrum, Gretsch, Ludwig and PDP, these are by far the best sounding drums straight out of the box. Including hardware I doubt you can find a better value. And the finishes are second to none. This kit will blow your mind and ear drums.
I have been playing an old 11 piece Tama set for decades and been completely content with it. Difficulty getting the sound right in the studio had me looking for another set. My local music store hinted at Mapex. I was instantly intrigued by their small details of innovation and great hardware. After extensive research I decided to pull the trigger. WOW! What a difference. The Electric Berry Burst finish was absolutely amazing. It is much a piece of art as it is a drum set. The set had stellar heavy-duty hardware and we eagerly set the drums right up in the studio. Really cool little items like shock mounted floor toms and a completely virgin bass drum. This set is absolutely awesome in every way. Powerful, quick, rich and warm tones. Thundering attack with limited overtones and odd noises I had come to accept from my old set, and other sets that have come through the studio. Micing the drums was quick and easy to get sounds throughout the set that were exactly what I was looking for. I could go on for hours about this drum set. People walk into the studio and are instantly impressed with the looks, and then are floored with the sound. The only problem I have with this set is that I cannot seem to get the other drummers off of it. The other drummer that shares the studio is now looking to replace his DW set with a new Mapex. This Saturn series is "Out of this world!" I could not be more pleased.
I ordered the Root Beer Burst kit, and when it arrived, I was stunned by the sheer beauty of the kit. Needless to say, I was more than eager to get heads on it and break it in. The stock heads were quality remos, and the sound they produced was uniformly rich and powerful. The bass sound was simply incredible. The extra two inches really make that thing a cannon. After a few months of using those remos with wonderful results, they finally went south. I decided to go with Evans EC2 Clears on the toms and an E hydraulic on the bass for my next cycle. Once I got those tuned up, I finally realized the true potential of this kit. The toms that were great before were now exceptional, and the bass reached new levels of power. This truly is a pro kit, and with the right heads and tunings, it will shine like no other kit on the market for the price. The rack toms are focused and powerful, and the floor toms are rich and deep. This kit is of a very special breed, and can contend with the best sets out there. A great buy for sure.
Great drumset! wouldn't pick any other on the market. Think about it... No other drumset has the attention to detail as mapex saturns/orions. With isolated floor tom legs and isolated bass drum legs, these drums really have a great tone to them. The hardware is exceptional. Not much difference between the hardware on this and the hardware on the orion. If you're looking to get a great set, look into mapex saturns and orions!
