The Mapex Mars Crossover 5 Piece Nightwood Shell Pack comes complete with the Mapex Mars 600 Black Hardware pack to ensure you have the main components you need to build your ideal set up. Featuring a 1 up 2 down configuration, this all birch drum kit is ideal for those who require more low-end impact.
Mapex Mars Crossover with Hardware
Providing a cost-effective and convenient way to upgrade your drum kit set up in one go, this Mapex Mars Crossover not only includes a 5-piece shell pack but also comes with a 5-piece hardware set too.
All you need to add is cymbals as you’re good to go!
The 1 rack tom and 2 floor tom setup is ideal for those who prefer more low-end tone from their kit.
The birch shells also serve to deliver a robust, full bottom end response combined with clear cutting highs for maximum impact.
Meanwhile the shallower tom sizes help to produce a quick rebound and super-fast attacking tone adding even more powerful punch to this kit’s sound.
The ideal way to upgrade your drum kit set up in one go, this convenient package offers great value compared to buying the kit and hardware separately.

- 22 x 18” Bass Drum
- 12 x 8” Rack Tom
- 14 x 12” Floor Tom
- 16 x 14” Floor Tom

Mapex Mars HP6005EB Black Plated Hardware Pack Includes:

- 1 x H600EB Hi-Hat Stand
- 1 x S600EB Snare Stand
- 1 x P600EB Single Bass Drum Pedal
The shells of this Mapex Mars kit are constructed from 6 plies of birch to deliver a shell thickness of 7.2mm for a good balance of durability and resonance.
Birch is characterised within drum building by its boosted high end, reduced midrange and brilliant low-end frequency response for an overall loud and cutting tone.
The brilliant robust low-end combined with the double floor tom set up works to ensure this drum kit packs a big punch.
Delivering unstoppable thudding power for a big, full bass filled sound, this is not a kit for the faint hearted.
The Mapex Mars Crossover kit features smaller shell depths to offer a more controlled compact tone with a fast, attacking response.
The shallower tom depths help the drums to respond quicker than larger drums, to deliver a quick burst of clear tone and a fast rebound playing feel.
Having smaller drum depths in the toms means that they have a slightly reduced sustain which serves to create a pronounced kit with brilliantly precise tone for a clean, controlled overall sound.
The result is a drum kit with superb projection combined with robust tone for a sharp, cutting responsive sound with weighty substance.
1 Up 2 Down
The 1 up 2 down configuration of this Mapex Mars kit offers a versatile setup that delivers on low-end tone.
Having the combination of the 22” bass, 14” and 16” floor toms serves to ensure you have a full, well-rounded blend of bottom end tone to deliver a full thudding sound.
Having a 1 up 2 down setup also provides the option to switch up to a smaller 1 up 1 down configuration for smaller venues or occasions when you don’t need as much bass frequency range.
Plus, having only 1 rack tom is ideal for players who prefer to position their ride cymbal closer to achieve a more comfortable playing position.
The matching 14” x 6.5” snare drum rounds off the shell pack perfectly to add a snappy responsive snare tone that works brilliantly across the tuning range.
Crank it up for a direct cutting tone or tune it low for a big, fat backbeat.
If you’re looking for versatility from your drum kit and require a powerful, rocking low frequency range the Mapex Mars Crossover is a top choice.
SONIClear Bearing Edges
The Mapex Mars Crossover is finished with Mapex’s proprietary SONIClear Bearing Edges.
This bearing edge design has been created by Mapex to improve the overall tone and tuning range of their drums.
The flatter design of the SONIClear bearing edge works to allow the drumhead to sit flatter on the drum for improved contact between the shell and the head.
This benefits the drum in a couple of ways. Firstly, it helps to deliver a stronger, deeper fundamental pitch for a more pronounced sound and secondly it significantly expands the tuning range of the drums and provides easier tuning that remains in place longer.
Ultimately what this means is better sounding drums that have a bigger tuning range, that are much quicker to tune and that stay in tune longer, so you can spend far less time tuning and much more time drumming. Winner!
The Mapex Mars Crossover comes complete with the SONIClear Tom Suspension Mount for easy placement and secure positioning of the rack tom over the bass drum.
The tom suspension mount has been specifically designed to avoid having to drill into the drum shell, which can negatively impact its tone.
Instead the mount works with the drum, instead of against it, to deliver increased overall resonance and stable tom placement without interfering with shell vibration.
The mount also distributes 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.
Dark as Night
Finished in a classic all black Nightwood design, this 5-piece Mars Crossover drum kit has a striking aesthetic.
Featuring a beautiful grained look upon closer inspection, this stunning dark Nightwood finish is complemented brilliantly by the black plated shell hardware, black Mapex badges and black low-contact bass drum claws.
Add to that the black hardware pack and this kit delivers a truly sophisticated, professional appearance for a look that’s impressive as its sound.
Mapex Mars Hardware
Not only do you get a stunning sound and classy looking drum kit, Mapex have also thrown in the hardware too!

The Mars HP6005EB hardware set consists of two boom stands, a hi-hat stand, snare stand and single bass drum pedal.
All the stands are double braced to ensure a stable and sturdy set up and the snare stand features an omni-ball adjuster for quick and easy snare placement to ensure you achieve your most comfortable playing position.

All the hardware has a professional black plated finish providing a classy look that contrasts perfectly with the Nightwood kit finish to deliver a striking overall aesthetic.
