OVERVIEW

Versatile hybrid maple/birch shells with an upgraded Armory series snare.

The Armory Series by Mapex features a 6-ply birch and maple that outputs a warm, focused tone. SONIClear bearing edge allows the heads to sit flat and increase shell resonance. Mapex Saturn IV-style lugs ensure a firm tune while providing a low-mass aesthetic.

In addition, all Armory shell packs include the 14" x 5-1/2" Tomahawk Black-Plated Steel Snare. The Tomahawk produces a bright, focused and loud backbeat and adds style to all Armory shell packs.

This purchase includes a manufacturer trade-in offer for ANY of Mapex's Armory Series four other snare drums. You'll have two weeks after your Armory kit purchase to test out the Tomahawk and, if the Tomahawk snare doesn't fit your sound, you can trade it in directly with Mapex for one of the other four Armory Snare drums at no charge.

FEATURES
  • Maple/Birch 6-Ply 7.2mm Shell
  • SONIClear Bearing Edge
  • SONIClear Tom Suspension
  • Saturn IV style lug
  • SONIClear Floor Tom Legs
  • Armory Tomahawk Snare Drum
  • Configuration:
  • Mounted tom: 10 x 8 and 12 x 9"
  • Floor toms: 14 x 14"
  • Snare: 14" x 5-1/2"

An armory that doubles as an arsenal. Wield it today.

    Comments about Mapex Armory Series 5-Piece Jazz/Rock Shell Pack:

    I bought this kit in transparent walnut and it sounds as great as it looks. Initially I had some problems getting the tones I wanted from my toms, but I'm still learning how to properly tune my heads. I bought a tune bot to help and now my kit sounds as amazing as any video I've seen on YouTube. I traded my tomahawk snare in for the daisy cutter and received the snare in less than a week. Amazing company! The 20" bass drum was tricky for me as I had to adjust the beater on my bass pedal to strike the head just above center. Also, I had to adjust the muffling inside the bass drum so as to not choke the sound or leave it too open. Overall, this is a great intermediate kit for me. I've done a lot of research before I made my purchase. This set is constructed well using birch and maple. The bearing edges are genius. The tom mounts allow for multiple configurations. And the sound I am able to get out of this kit is what I was hoping for. I did change out all the heads using Remo ambassadors on the reso and Evans G2 clear on the batter. With proper lug tension, you can make this kit sound amazing.

      Comments about Mapex Armory Series 5-Piece Jazz/Rock Shell Pack:

      Love the kit. Finish is beautiful. Hardware appears to be solid. The tone and ease of tuning are awesome for the cost. The stand alone 20inch bass attracted me to the kit. The toms mount easily to my existing cymbal stands.

      Mapex has a trade-in program for the snare, if you have your heart on the "Exterminator" expect to wait a long time before you play your complete set. I sent the Tomahawk back three weeks ago, just called and it looks like I have at least another 3 weeks before they get more in.
