Punchy rock kit
Mapex Mars MA528 22 inch Retro Fusion Drum Kit Driftwood
The Mars Series Retro Fusion features a 1 up (12x8) and 2 down (14x12, 16x14) configuration that is ideal for players who want a powerful rock sound with a single rack tom for closer positioning of their ride cymbal. The 22x18 bass drum allows close, low positioning of the top rack tom and gives a big, well rounded tone.
This kit is supplied with a hardware pack consisting of H600, P600, S600 and B600 x 2.
The days of entry-level meaning ''bare minimum'' are over. The Mapex Mars Series drums truly redefine what to expect from this price range. Birch shells provide some of the sweetest, most crisp tones imaginable. Ultimate tuning stability and resonance is provided by the new SONIClear bearing edge. The layout of the Crossover Retro features larger dimensions for a louder, more 'rock-fusion' sound. Because there are no toms mounted from the kick drum, you can also expect more boom from the bass. The finishing touch is a stunning Bloodwood finish to make your performances memorable!
It's all present in the Mapex Mars Crossover Retro set, and it's all available at an affordable price. With this kit, you get even better value with the included hardware pack! The Mapex Mars series is the hottest product in the drum world right now, and we couldn't recommend them highly enough as the perfect kit for beginner and intermediate players.
The Mars Drum Kits feature insulated bass drum claws that include rubber gaskets to protect the hoop from damage and prevent rattling or buzzing during long playing sessions. The 100 percent birch 6 ply shells produce great focus and allow the drums to sound quickly and project clearly. Rack toms have a punchy brightness whilst the bass drum and floor toms have lower frequencies with enhanced punch and body.
The matching snare drum gives a unified look to this kit and giving you that solid, snare crack. The size of the snare provides great tuning and musical versatility.
The SONIClear™ Bearing Edge is standard on all Mars shells and allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning and a significantly expanded tuning range.
The SONIClear™ on the rack toms increases overall resonance by preserving vibration in the drumheads and shell whilst preventing energy transferring to the hardware.
