Mapex are one of the highest quality drum manufacturers in the world, producing quality acoustic drums and accessories that draw on their years of experience. With kits to suit all budgets, we use these drums in many of our music schools.
Skilfully handcrafted by their team of hundreds of employees in China, Mapex drums are hand built and hand assembled in their own factory. With their reputation for building and designing acoustic drums of the highest quality, Mapex has become the world's standard for manufacturing excellence in drums.
Building drums of such high quality requires materials that adhere to this, most noticeably the wood. With their Mapex Professional Wood Grading Team, Mapex select only the finest premium grade hardwoods such as birch, basswood, maple and walnut, which are then matched to produce the distinctive signature Mapex sound.
In order for you and your drums to look your best, all of Mapex's painted drums have hand applied an eight-coat, hand-rubbed, high-gloss lacquer to each shell by Mapex finish experts. These finishes are durable and easy to maintain helping you become the envy of your drumming community. The same high standards are applied with pride to Mapex drums throughout their range, resulting in drums that come with your complete confidence when hit the stage, to let your playing and personality shine through.
