The Mapex Saturn V Sound Wave Twin kit is a versatile 5 piece drum shell set perfect for any style or genre. The hybrid Maple/Walnut shells deliver a rich, resonant tone with excellent volume and sustain, while the innovative SONIClear? bearing edge and mounts work to increase vibrations in the shell and heads, maximising the drums' resonance and projection.

The Sound Wave Twin set features 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms. These punchy ''short stack'' toms deliver a clear and focused sound with quick attack and short sustain, ideal for a wide range of styles. The aggressive 16x14 floor tom provides the kit with driving low end depth, while the supporting 14x12 floor tom sits right in the middle, providing a smooth transition between the kit's low and high end tones. The hybrid Maple/Walnut shells come complete with black chrome hardware and a gorgeous exotic Deep Water Maple Burl finish, ensuring that this kit looks every bit as impressive as it sounds.
The shells feature Mapex's unique SONIClear™ bearing edge, which allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a drum with far greater resonance and tonal clarity, along with a deeper, more rounded tone. The SONIClear™ edge also allows for much easier tuning, and enables the drum to consistently stay in tune.
Complimenting the bearing edge are the innovative low-contact mounts. The bass drum claws and SONIClear™ tom suspension are designed to increase resonance by reducing contact and preserving vibration in the shell. The tom suspension also avoids touching the tension rods, allowing the heads to stay in tune for longer and making them easy to change.
The new bass drum spurs and TH800 tom arm mount both feature measure marks, enabling you to easily and accurately set them to your preferred settings, and the arm mount features a spring system which allows the clamp to be slipped over the tube with one quick move, without needing two hands.
Please note: This Mapex shell pack does not include cymbals, snare or hardware.
