Mt. Juliet, TN - January, 2013
The Mapex Drum Company has announced their updated Falcon series hardware by introducing several new models that are due to land in stores in April of 2013. All Falcon models offer players extreme adjustability, supreme playability and touring level durability that players can depend on night after night.
"We spent a lot of time working with artists to define the concept based on their real-life needs. They felt that extreme adjustability was the goal, but only if the adjustments could be made simply and quickly. Knowing their needs were shared by all drummers, we designed a collection of hardware that includes simple to operate features and conveniences that would benefit players in the studio, on tour, or even in the woodshed." - Michael Robinson, KHS Director of Marketing.
