Mapex have announced the release of their Saturn V Tour Edition shell kits at NAMM 2017, which includes the Saturn V Tour Edition 22" 3pc Shell Pack in a stunning Black Pearl finish. The Tour Edition kits deliver the same unmistakable modern Mapex sound but with a simpler 3 piece setup designed for groove playing in mind, and are constructed with unique hybrid walnut shells.

The Tour Edition's hybrid shells feature Mapex's SONIClear and trade; bearing edge which mean the drum heads sit flatter and make better contact with the shells, resulting in a far greater resonance and tonal clarity, with a deeper more rounded tone. SONIClear and trade; tom suspension and specially designed bass drum claws are engineered to increase resonance by reduced contact and retaining shell vibration.

The unique bearing edge also makes for much easier and consistent tuning, ideal for touring musicians who need a rapid stage setup night after night. Both the new bass drum spurs and a TH800 tom arm mount with spring system also feature handy measure marks allowing for a quick and accurate setup to your preferred settings, which can save precious time whether at practice or playing live.

The Mapex Saturn V Tour Shell Packs are available with a 20", 22" or 24" kick drum to suit any style, and in a selection of attractive vintage-look finishes; Vintage Sparkle, White Marine, Black Strata and the featured Black Pearl. The shell sets make and ideal starting point for a premium quality custom kit which you can finish with your choice of cymbals, extra drums and hardware.
