Beautiful Burst

Offering a beautifully vibrant aesthetic, this Mapex Armory shell pack features a Redwood Burst finish.

Allowing the unique grain of the shells to shine through, the centre of the drums has a light-yellow tone that graduates to a deep rich red at the edges.

Delivering a bright pop of impressive colour, this stunning finish is complemented perfectly by the all chrome hardware.

Providing a look that’s as stunning, rich and luscious as the sound of the drums, this Mapex Armory kit is stand out in sight and sound.

Maple Birch Blend

Utilising a balanced blend of the two most popular drum building woods, this Mapex Armory drum kit offers a brilliantly well-rounded sound.

The combination of birch and maple works to provide the best of both woods to ensure a sound that is capable of covering all playing styles and performance settings.

Each of the shells in this Mapex 5-piece shell pack are 6 ply / 7.2mm and have a birch/maple/birch ply pattern.

Characterised by its all-purpose tone, maple delivers even amounts of highs and mids combined with a lusciously warm low-end response.

Meanwhile, birch offers boosted highs, a scooped mid-range and a punchy bottom end to deliver loud and cutting sound. 

The combination of the two serves to provide a drum kit that delivers the ultimate in tonal expression.

The piercing top end of the birch ensures you’ll cut through the mix on stage, while the warmth of maple provides stunning depth of tone ideal for the studio.

So, whether you want big impactful tone for rock and pop or want higher tones for funk and jazz, this Mapex Armory kit is adaptable enough to meet the most diverse demands.

SONIClear Bearing Edges

As with all Mapex drums, this Armory shell pack features SONIClear bearing edge technology.

The SONIClear bearing edge allows the drumhead to sit flat on the shell which helps to build an even relationship between the head and drum.

This improved connection helps to bring out the best response from the drum by streamlining the transfer of vibrations from the drumhead to the drum shell.

Allowing this direct transmission of sound ensures you achieve the best tone from your kit by reducing unwanted frequencies and providing a stronger fundamental pitch.

The SONIClear edges also aid easier tuning and help the drums to stay in tune longer.

The result is a drum kit that not only sounds better but is easier to tune to ensure you find the exact sound you want no matter what style you play.

Helpful Hardware

This Mapex Armory Rock Shell Pack comes complete with SONIClear tom suspension mounts and SONIClear floor tom feet to improve the overall resonance of the toms.

The tom suspension mount offers reliable hold and precise positioning for your rack toms without negatively affecting the resonance of the shells.

The SONIClear tom mount attaches to the rack tom via two lug points with an additional rubber support point lower down the shell to maintain shell isolation and keep stress away from the tension rods.

This not only helps the heads to stay in tune longer it also ensures the rack toms are left to resonant freely to deliver supreme sustain.

Similarly, the SONIClear floor tom feet help to prevent vibration transfer from the drum to floor which would negatively affect the sustain of the shell.

The 22” bass drum is fitted with low-contact bass drum claws to provide reliable rattle free hold to maintain consistent tuning.

Tomahawk Snare

This Mapex Armory drum kit also comes complete with a Tomahawk snare to top the kit off with bright focused tone.

Featuring a 1mm stainless steel shell this Mapex snare has rounded 45 degree bearing edges to deliver focused brightness with tonnes of volume.

The all steel shell provides brilliantly versatile tone filled with penetrating accuracy, long range projection and loud focused power.

The black chrome finish of the snare perfectly complements the rich Redwood Burst finish of the kit to provide a strikingly professional overall aesthetic.

The Tomahawk snare is fitted with a piston strainer with vertical throw off to provide smooth adjustment of the snare wires.


Delivering beautifully balanced tone, optimum resonance and stunning style, this Mapex Armory is a superb kit for the intermediate drummer.

The birch and maple hybrid shells deliver well-rounded tone filled with cutting projection and full warmth.

The sound aiding SONIClear bearing edges and hardware help to ensure the drums deliver their optimum resonance and sustain.

The beautiful graduated colour of the Redwood Burst finish offers a stunning aesthetic that will ensure you stand out no matter where you play.

The inclusion of the Tomahawk snare ensures you’ll achieve bright focused projection to perfectly complement the full rich tone of the toms.
