NAMM 2016: Mapex Unveil Storm Series Kits

Mapex Storm Series
Mapex Storm Series
New for 2016, Mapex introduce the Storm Series. Ideal for beginners, the Storm Series sets offer 100% Poplar shells complete with the new SONIClear™ Bearing Edge and shallow depth toms.

The SONIClear™ bearing edge increases the contact between the drumhead and shell and allows the head to sit flat on the edge, this produces a stronger and more centered pitch, making these drums remarkably easy to tune.

There are two kit configurations available: the 20" Fast Fusion kit and 22" Rock Fusion kit. Both kits are available in 4 finishes: Camphor Wood Grain with chrome hardware, Ebony Blue Grain with chrome hardware, Iron Grey with black plate hardware and Deep Black with black plate hardware.
