Mapex Meridian Maple 5-piece Jazz Drum Set
Since its introduction in 2009, the Mapex Meridian Series has revolutionized the way we look at drums in the mid-range price point. This set has many features usually found on drum kits that are double its price range, such as 7-ply all maple shells, 2.3mm steel powerhoops, non-penetrating bass drum spurs, and spring loaded floor tom legs. It has managed to give all of us on a budget a kit truly fit for a king.
The all-maple shells give this kit a warm, open tone that has lots of body and resonance while the 2.3mm steel powerhoops help focus this drum in and keep it in tune. The non-penetrating bass drum spurs create less surface tension on the shell, allowing it to become more resonant. This gives you that perfect booming, bone shaking bass drum sound you’ve always wanted. The spring loaded floor tom legs were also designed in a similar vain. They help absorb the shock of each hit, allowing the drum to breathe more freely and become more resonant. The result is a low, growling floor tom, ideal for all styles of play. This set also comes in what many call “bop sizes." This means that the drums are generally smaller in order to give you a sharp, focused sound that is very reminiscent of some of the sounds on your favorite jazz records.
