About Mapex

What Makes Us Different?

Most of us are musician’s too. Many of us are drummers. All of us love music. We get that you want awesome drums at a great price. But we also understand that the very act of playing is cathartic and transcends any brand. Look, we’d like everyone to play Mapex, but mostly we want fellow musicians to love playing. If we can help make that happen for you, we won’t let it end there.

We want your brutal honestly. We want your help in making Mapex drums the instrument that allows you to express yourself to the max.

We really enjoy what we do. We feel fortunate to be able to interact with other drummers every day.

What About The Drums?

It starts with the raw materials. Building the highest quality product initially depends on the expertise of those that select the the wood. Premium grade hardwoods like maple, walnut, birch and basswood are hand-selected from worldwide sources and are then matched by skilled experts to ensure that every drum Mapex produces carries with it the signature tonal and resonant properties that define the distinctive Mapex sound.

Let’s face it, looks are important too. All of our lacquer drums have eight-coat, hand-rubbed, high-gloss lacquer applied to each shell. Mapex finishes are durable, easy to maintain.

The details do matter. Our isolated tom mounting system ensures the sound you hear is all tom. From the bearing edges to the easy set bass drum claws, our dedicated artisans think like musicians and apply their expertise to creating a drum set that lets you focus on your playing and not on the equipment.

Every drum gets the same treatment. Regardless of price, we want every drum we craft to be built to exacting specifications. We want you to start out on Mapex and love it so much that when you make it big, you remember us.

We stand behind our instruments. Our artisans are relentless in designing and producing drums and hardware that can endure performance after performance. The result is a drum that you take on stage or into the studio with complete confidence.
