Mapex Drums is proud to introduce the Saturn V Tour Edition, an expansion of the existing Saturn V line. Built with the same Maple/Walnut Hybrid shell and SONIClear™ Bearing Edge that characterize the distinctive sound and tuning ease of Saturn V, the Tour Edition delivers modern performance with a classic look.
Rack toms possess clarity and warmth while the floor toms and bass drums produce a dense punch with deep low-end. The Tour Edition is available in four classic-style wrap finishes, perfectly suited to hold up to the rigors of the road. The one up-one down core configurations have been assembled for the gigging drummer, but can be easily customized to produce a wide range of set-ups by adding drums.
“The SONIClear™ bearing edge has been very important to the success of all the Mapex high end drums, helping players at all levels achieve great drum sounds much quicker than before”, states Gary Ingraffia, Mapex Brand Manager. “That frustration, especially for players who are learning the art of tuning their drums, can lead to a lack of enjoyment and less time playing. The SONIClear™ Bearing Edge solves those issues and enables players to get a great sound even without much tuning experience.”
The Saturn V Tour Edition is available in 4 classic wrapped finishes: Black Strata Pearl, White Marine, Vintage Sparkle, and Black Pearl.
The Saturn V Tour Edition…honoring the past while pushing forward.
