Mapex SV529XUB-MXN Saturn V MXN Exotic Series, Sound Wave 4 Piece Shell Pack, Natural Maple Burl
Mapex Saturn V, what can I say, I've owned two Saturn's but now they've gone and made them even better! Same Maple and Walnut combo on the shells but with the tuning friendly addition of the Soniclear bearing edge, making the toms play like a dream even if your tuning is not the best! The bass drum for me is still clincher, this is honestly one of a best sounding tubs out there. Why want the moon.... give me Saturn any day.
- 22x18 bass drum (undrilled)
- 16x14 toms
- TH800x2 tom arms
The SOUND WAVE offers balanced versatility in the ultimate shell pack for use with any and every music genre. The shallower 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms are quick to attack and have short sustain so there’s no ringing resonance, only definition and projection. The shorter depth also allows for mid to high tuning so the range of possibilities are endless.
The shallower 16x14 floor tom is focused and aggressive with lots of depth and attack, the perfect partner to the internally optimised 22x17.5 kick who drives the kit along with punch at the perfect frequency range.
The SONIClear ™ Bearing Edge is applied as standard on all SATURN V Shells. It allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell’s edge. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range. For the serious player, the increased head to edge contact increases shell vibration, allowing the sonic nuances of the Hybrid shell to stand out.
Please Note: Snare, hardware and cymbals are not included with this shell pack.
