Kelsey Cook GOODING

I’ve played Mapex ever since I had a choice in drums. When I was about 12, my drum instructor told my mother and I that Mapex had the best sounding drums for the most affordable price, and I knowingly agreed. We bought the Maple Pro M Series - Tobacco fade 7 piece shell set. I fell in love and never stopped drumming. I’m proud to play Mapex drums because they take pride in what they do, and so do I.
