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.
