Style and Innovation at an Inviting Price Point

When you're battling multiple guitars for a place in the mix, not just any drum kit will do. The Mapex Armory shell pack cuts through today's music with a clean, focused attack and style to match. Acoustically, each shell's hand-selected maple core boasts a familiar bite and sensitivity — one that drummers of all backgrounds will enjoy. And come showtime, the Mapex Armory's birch inner and outer plies focus attack for a tight, modern, close-miked sound. Mapex's SONIClear bearing edges seat drumheads flat on the shell, providing a wide tuning range and pure, deep fundamentals. And the option to choose from five wood or steel snare drums makes the Mapex Armory shell pack a clear winner for today's gear-savvy performer.

Maple/birch shells sport a modern, focused attack

The kick and toms in your Mapex Armory shell pack are crafted from hand-selected maple with birch inner and outer plies. Maple provides the Armory's resonant body and projection, while birch dries overtones and focuses attack for satisfying impact.

SONIClear bearing edges unlock the full tone of your shells

Place a drumhead on one of your current shells. Notice the rocking? The drag when you spin it? That's proof that your bearing edges are robbing you of tone and tuning capability. Mapex's SONIClear bearing edges seat heads so perfectly that they can be hand-tensioned and still produce a pure tone. This widens the tuning range for players who like deeper fundamentals, while producing a purer pitch across the board.

Tone-enhancing tom hardware promotes sustain

SONIClear tom suspension mounts and floor tom feet further enhance the soulful resonance of which your Mapex Armory shells are capable.

Tomahawk steel snare excels for rock and metal

Mapex drums have found a niche among rock and metal drummers. For these applications, the Tomahawk steel snare drum included in your Armory shell pack won't disappoint. It bears all the marks of a fine steel snare: a deep, throaty growl, penetrating cut, and great snare sensitivity.

Snare trade-in program gives you time to find your voice

The snare drum makes or breaks a kit for many drummers. That's why Sweetwater is excited about Mapex's Armory snare trade-in program. Play, tune, and gig with your included steel Tomahawk snare. If within two weeks you're not sold, exchange it for any other snare in the Armory Series. Choose from the following:

  • Dillinger, 8-ply maple (5.5x14") — Lively, balanced, open, versatile
  • Peacemaker, 7-ply maple/walnut (5.5x14") — Dry attack with a fat bottom
  • Exterminator, 7-ply birch/walnut (6.5x14") — Focused, full-bodied attack with metallic overtones

Awesome set, bass drum roars!

I have been looking for the ideal mid-range set for gigs for a few years. I think I've found it here. Mind you, I don't give them full 5 stars because I compare everything to my Saturns, which are the best sounding drums bar none, but I don't gig them out. The hybrid maple/birch shells really sing, I'm a huge birch fan because of how punchy it is, and together with maple just makes it really balanced and have great presence. The floor tom (mine is a 16") will be felt on the chest of anybody standing in front of the kit, my bass player turns around every time I hit it and mouths "wow"! The bass drum (22") is huge and haven't even mic'd it in some venues....it doesn't need a lot of help to blow you away. Also, the lacquer (Magma Red) glitters and shines under the lights....absolutely gorgeous. The black hardware complements an already impressive looking and sounding set. As an FYI, I switched out the stock heads for Evans G2 Clears so I can't speak for them.
