Vintage Visuals for Modern Music
The Mapex Saturn V Tour range features the same shell construction as the Saturn V series, with the same attention to detail when it comes to sound, just with a classic look. The “traditional” sized bass drum and classic wrap finish ensure an old school vintage aesthetic and sound ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
Mapex Saturn V Tour 3 Piece Shell Pack Configuration:
- 22” x 16” Virgin Bass Drum
- 12” x 8” Rack Tom
- 16” x 16” Floor Tom
Classic Saturn Sound
This 3 piece shell pack features a maple/walnut hybrid construction. The bass drum has a slightly thicker 8ply 7.5mm shell, while the toms are 6ply 5.1mm.
The Maple and Walnut blend of the shells serves to offer a kit with both a strong attack and rich tone, with projection ideal for both live and studio settings. It’s a super versatile, well-rounded drum kit.
Not only does it have the power and attack needed for modern music styles, it also offers depth with full, rich tone. It’s the classic sound that has made the Mapex Saturn series so popular.
Maple is characterised by an even amount of high and mid frequencies, with a slightly warm low end. Walnut, meanwhile, offers an equal amount of high, mid and low frequencies producing a big warm sound.
The combination of the two works to create a drum kit sound that is well represented across all frequencies for a full, well-balanced tone with great warmth.
SONIClear Bearing Edges
As with all Mapex kits, the Mapex Saturn V Tour comes with SONIClear bearing edges. This innovative technology, specific to Mapex, was designed to make the drum head sit flatter for a better shell to head contact. This not only allows for improved resonance and more tone but also simplifies the tuning process, extends the tuning range and helps heads stay in tune longer.
In a nutshell, it enables quicker, longer lasting, more consistent drum tuning allowing you to spend more time drumming and less time tuning.
Attention To Detail
As you would expect from high-end Mapex kits, the Mapex Saturn V 3 piece shell pack features a variety of key details.
The rack tom comes complete with a SONIClear Tom Suspension mount to aid shell resonance for a clearer tone.
Both toms also feature 2.3mm power hoops while the bass drum has low-contact bass drum claws and memory-mark bass drum spurs to ensure consistent setup.
The Black Strata Pearl wrap is perfectly complemented by the signature Mapex chrome lugs and black M Mapex badge.
Expand as Your Needs Do
The core packs offered in the Saturn V Tour series can be easily customised, adapted and expanded by adding various available components.
Whether you want to add an extra floor tom or want a second rack tom to add a range of tone to your setup you can do that with the Mapex Saturn.
Adapt your kit as your musical needs change, for a truly customised set up for each performance and project.
Additional snares, toms and bass drum sizes are sold separately.
Black Strata Stunner
This Mapex 3 piece 22” drum kit is finished with a stunning Black Strata Pearl for a truly vintage appearance. Reminiscent of oyster pearl kits from the 60s and 70s, this Mapex Saturn kit has a classic look thanks to the speckled wrap that beautifully blends silvery blue, white and black colours to create an overall striking vintage aesthetic.
The Mapex Saturn V Tour is also available in 3 other classic finishes including Black Pearl, Vintage Sparkle and White Marine.
If you want a modern sounding shell pack with a classic look the Saturn V Tour kit is an ideal option. With features like the SONIClear bearing edge, traditional drum sizes, vintage aesthetic and a shell construction that offers both attacking projection and full tone, this kit is a superb addition to any drummer’s arsenal.
