The Mars Series was designed to give the average drummer access to quality drums at an affordable price. These drums feature a 6-ply shell that's crafted from 100% birch. Birch is loved by many of the world's top pros due to it's almost naturally EQ'd sound. It's warm with a sharp, biting attack that makes it perfect for both live and studio situations. These drums also feature Mapex's signature bearing edge, the SONIClear. This proprietary edge allows the head to sit flush on the drum; making it easier to tune while improving the drum's response, fundamental pitch, and natural resonance. The Crossover configuration features…

  • 18"x22" Bass Drum
  • 6.5"x14" Snare Drum
  • 8" x 12" Tom
  • 12"x14" Floor Tom
  • 14"x16" Floor Tom

This makes it the perfect kit for anyone who wants the deep, growling sound of a double floor tom kit. Some of the most legendary players have used two floor toms. John Bonham, Louie Bellson, Buddy Rich, Benny Greb, and more have utilized this kind of set up in order to emphasize the instruments low end while giving the rhythm section a bit more boom.   

The folks at Mapex sure didn't skimp out on the hardware either. This kit features a through bass drum mount, MyDentity lugs, SONIClear Tom Suspension, SONIClear Floor Tom Legs, and triple-flange hoops. Such high end features are usually reserved for kits double the price of the Mars series.  

The MyDentity lugs are extremely low mass and help improve the drums sustain while giving it that definitive Mapex look. The SONIClear Suspension System was designed to makes minimal contact with the shell. This allows it to improve the drums natural resonance while providing rock solid stability. The spring loaded SONIClear floor tom legs work in the same way. They help improve the drums resonance by allowing the drum to "float" so to speak. This takes any additional stress off the shell that traditional floor tom legs would create.
