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.
