Re: Mapex drums review


Well I like mapex drums. Lotta drummers around here that I've seen at concerts use the kit/brand And if LoG's drummer chris adlers' snare is anywhere near what the normal panthers are then I absolutely love them :P Love the sound of his snare.

Re: Mapex drums review


I'm pretty sure Cris Adlers snare is metal, but the 12" cat is a very nice funk snare.

I personally am looking to buy a pro-m as soon as I can get the cash together. The shells are quite thin, by comparison, which makes for a less focussed sound, but I'm sure I can cancell this out with a good head purchase and tuning.

The great thing is the selection you get for the price. Eg. I'm gonna get a 15" floor tom to use next to my 16". No other company would offer a 15" in this price range and I'm not quite happy with the limited depth of my 14".

Thin maple shells make for big volume. That's why I'm chiefly looking at the pro-m. Maple sound, mahogany price.

And finish selection is awesome, just check out the website. DRUMS--MAPEX DRUMS

Okay, I'll admit the snare does look only 12" (when compared to his 12" rack tom), but it is deffinately brass. Looks brass, sounds brass.

Re: Mapex drums review


I wen't to a studio a while back and the drummer had a couple black panther snares. I think there pretty cool my self. Mapex has some really impressive kits. The orion looks to be a really nice kit. I've never played a set, but I ordered a magazine from them and I read the specs and the way the build there kits. The systems they use to help the shell resonate impressed me. Dom Famularo has a Saturn and even though the kit was over the net it sounded pretty good. They are a good kit especially for the money you spend on them. I've used the hardware before and they make good hardware. Over all they make pretty good kits.
