The Mapex Armory Studioease 6-piece Desert Dune Shell Pack features birch/maple hybrid shells finished with SONIClear bearing edges to deliver robust, well-balanced tone. The kit comes complete with the cutting Mapex Tomahawk snare included. Ideal if you’re looking to upgrade from your starter kit or need a bigger 2 up 2 down set up for a wider tonal range.

Mapex Armory Studioease Shell Pack

Designed to deliver brilliantly versatile full tone, the Mapex Armory Studioease kit features a hybrid shell concept to combine the best characteristics from both birch and maple.

The shell construction combined with the precision cut Mapex SONIClear bearing edges works to provide a drum kit with superb projection, brilliant tonal expression and easy prolonged tuning.

The 2 up 2 down configuration provides a wide range of tone allowing for a versatile set up that can be changed to suit your needs.

This kit offers a lot of tone at a brilliant price. An amazing kit for the intermediate drummer!

Mapex Armory Studioease 6-piece Desert Dune Shell Pack Configuration:

  • 22 x 18” Bass Drum
  • 10 x 8” Rack Tom
  • 12 x 9” Rack Tom
  • 14 x 14” Floor Tom
  • 16 x 16” Floor Tom
  • 14 x 5.5” Tomahawk Snare Drum

Best of Both

By using the two most popular shell building woods Mapex have taken the best aspects of both to create a great well-rounded sound.

Consisting of a birch/maple/birch 6ply shell construction, the Mapex Studioease shells have a 7.2mm thickness for a good balance of durability and resonance.

The boosted high frequencies and low-end punch of the birch wood are complemented perfectly by the even highs and mids of the maple.

The robust, warm low-end response of maple combined with the punchy bottom end of birch serves to deliver a kit sound that has full, luscious, impactful bass tone.

SONIClear Bearing Edges

Mapex have developed their SONIClear bearing edge technology to allow the drumhead to sit flatter for improved contact between shell and head.

They believe this results in a stronger, deeper fundamental pitch, easier more consistent tuning and a significantly expanded tuning range.

The result is drums that are much quicker to tune and that stay in tune longer. This means you can spend far less time tuning and much more time drumming. Winner!

With regards to the Mapex Armory Studioease it means the big tone delivered by the birch/maple shells is projected brilliantly thanks to the bearing edge.

The result is a drum kit with robust tone and powerful projection to deliver the ultimate tonal expression.

Versatile Configuration

Modern drummers need to be more adaptable and versatile than ever before.

Often switching between a range of genres or playing music that blends different musical styles, drummers need a kit that can do it all.

Have a 2 up 2 down set up provides you with the flexibility to tailor make your drum kit configuration based on your needs.

If you’re playing a small jazz gig you may only needs a 1 up 1 down set up, whereas if you’re rocking out to some prog you might need the full range of tone offered by the full 2 up 2 down configuration.

Having the Mapex Armory Studioease gives you the options you need to ensure you have every eventuality covered.

Resonant Mounting

This Mapex Armory drumkit features an undrilled 22 x 18” bass drum for improved resonance compared to kicks that are drilled for mounting toms.

The two rack toms are stand mounted and feature SONIClear tom suspension mounts.

The tom suspension mounts have been specifically designed to avoid having to drill into the drums.

Instead they work with the drum, instead of against it, to deliver increased overall resonance and stable tom placement without interfering with shell vibration.

The mounts also distribute weight to keep stress away from the tension rods which helps the heads to stay in tune.

The floor toms also feature SONIClear floor tom feet, again designed to aid shell resonance by reducing vibration transfer from the floor to the tom.

Dashing Desert Dune

This 6-piece Mapex kit features a stylish Desert Dune finish to give a beautiful honey coloured wood grained appearance to the shells.

The natural grain of the outer birch ply can be seen through the shinning clear lacquer to deliver a beautifully, bright classy look.

Add to that the shining chrome hardware, black Mapex badges and chrome low-contact bass drum claws for a brilliantly professional aesthetic.

For style and substance, this Studioease kit is a stunning choice at a great price.

Tomahawk Snare

As if a 2 up 2 down configuration were not enough, the Mapex Armory Studioease Desert Dune also comes with the Mapex Tomahawk 14” x 5.5” snare included!

Featuring a 1mm black plated steel shell, the Mapex Tomahawk features rounded 45-degree SONIClear bearing edges to deliver penetrating attack, lots of projection and a super loud rimshot.

The snare is finished with tooled solid steel Armory tube lugs, 2.3mm chrome power hoops and a Piston Strainer for quick and easy snare setting adjustment.

This bright, focused, loud snare is the perfect accompaniment to the full warm tone of the Studioease kit.


Offering superb value for money, this kit delivers top end attention to detail at an affordable price.

With its hybrid birch and maple construction this kit serves up brilliantly balanced tone making it ideal for a wide range of musical styles.

Add to that the cutting Tomahawk snare and you have a brilliantly well-rounded kit.

The ability to switch up the setup also makes it the ideal versatile kit for the modern adaptable drummer.

Plus, with the stunning desert dune finish you’re sure to look as pro as you sound.
