OVERVIEW

A beautiful visual update to Mapex's popular Armory Series with a configuration that's ready for any musical style.

The NEW Armory Series finishes are the latest realization of the Mapex hybrid shell concept. Mapex has taken the popular Armory series and added beautiful veneers, making this one of the most stunning looking and sounding drum kits in its price-point. As in the prior Armory Series finishes, the shells are a fusion of birch and maple, delivering the ultimate in tonal expression. The SONIClear bearing edges allow the drumhead to sit flat, bringing out the best response by optimizing the relationship between the head and shell.

    Comments about Mapex Armory Series Exotic Studioease Shell Pack:

    Lacquer cracked all over the kick drum, Had the kit for 3 weeks, Put them in hard shell cases, I put them up in my church then I noticed the cracks in the lacquer, Poorly by being to fast on production line for the the paint jobs, Pearl is so much better on the lacquer than Mapex period, Mapex needs to a lot better on the lacquer side of it...

        Never had a mapex in my life, first time for everything. This is a great drum set and sound great, especially after I changed all the drum heads to Evans G1 clears on the bottom and EVans EC2 on top. Then it really came to life. I play all types of music and it fits great will all of them. BUT THAT WOOD FINISH IS INCREDIBLE!!!! I would buy again just to look at the finish as I open the boxes all over again....RIDICULOUS!!

            Comments about Mapex Armory Series Exotic Studioease Shell Pack:

            I really love this kit! The price was outstanding for the value and I love that fact mapex will let you swap out the snare if you don't like the one it comes with.

            The toms are super easy to tune and very resonant. The kick has a great thump after i put an emad2 and a remad on it (no damping on the kick)

            I really like the attention to detail in the packing of the kit and I couldn't be more pleased with the function!

              This is a great live kit. I still have the branded heads on the toms with no dampening and they cut with a big full sound without being overpowering and also they are easy to tune .This is a great kit at a great price. Just buy them!!
