OVERVIEW

Ideal for all professional music applications, both live and in studio.

Together with respected artists around the globe, Mapex reimagined their flagship line with the Saturn IV. Now the Mapex team has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V. These drums feature 6-ply North American walnut-maple hybrid shells (8-ply bass) built with two plies of maple around both sides of two inner plies of walnut. Adding the SONIClear bearing edge to the Saturn V clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of the maple and walnut shell.

The drums are also equipped with the award-winning SONIClear bearing edge and the SONIClear resonant single tom clamp as standard features on every Saturn V kit. Couple the SONIClear-edged hybrid shell with the SONIClear clamp and the tom resonance is noticeably fuller and the sustain is dramatically longer.

Along with these new features, both Saturn V MH and MH Exotic have SONIClear tom suspension, SONIClear floor tom legs, low-contact bass drum claws, Memory Mark bass drum spurs and a free-floating bass drum mount (optional). Couple all of these features together and you have rack toms with increased clarity and warmth, floor toms sounding bigger and deeper than their size, and bass drums producing a dense punch and full boom.

Additionally, these shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads. The Exotic models all come standard with black chrome hardware, while the MH model features chrome hardware. Players will have a hard time deciding on their favorite finish.

Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

      Comments about Mapex Saturn V 4-Piece Rock Shell Pack:

      The Mapex Saturn V set arrived on time. I opened the boxes and pulled the floor tom out and I could not believe how beautiful the drum looked. Removed all the other drums and began tuning the stock heads. This drum set tuned so easily and sounded amazing! I set it up cross over (1 up 2 down) style.

      Great kit. Musicians Friend has sizes listed WRONG

      By Doug

      from York, PA

      Comments about Mapex Saturn V 4-Piece Rock Shell Pack:

      These drums are awesome and sound great BUT the sizes musicians friend has listed for this 4 piece config (in all colors) is wrong. The kick is correct. But the rack toms are 10x7 and 12x8 while the floor tom is 16x14 and they can't get the sizes actually listed.

        Comments about Mapex Saturn V 4-Piece Rock Shell Pack:

        Trust Doug when he says the sizes on the description are wrong. You will be disappointed when you pull out that floor tom and discover it's not a 16x16 thumper.

        This is a good deal if you like the smaller jazz sizes, though.
