“Having the support of Mapex this summer allows the drummers attending TEI, to have access to professional equipment for their lessons,” said Kevin Lyman, Vans Warped Tour founder, Producer, and CEO.

“We're elated to have Mapex Drums on board with The Entertainment Institute this summer on the Vans Warped Tour,” says Jen Kellogg, TEI CO-Founder. “Mapex Drums are a very forward-thinking company, with deep roots in education. They're not just a random sponsor providing gear for our gurus and students - they're actually a partner, with whom we look forward to collaborating for years to come”!

For the tour, Mapex will have their new Saturn V sets on the Journey Left Foot and the Journey Right Foot stages along with their Black Panther snare drums, and Falcon hardware. The Saturn V tone and projection is perfect for delivering full throttle drum sound in these unpredictable outdoor venues. The Beatport stage will be equipped with a Mapex Armory drum set and Mapex Falcon hardware.  

In addition to the premier Vans Warped Tour stages, Mapex will have Armory and Mars sets firmly planted in the new TEI (The Entertainment Institute) tent. TEI is a music education platform that gives access to musicians and professionals currently working in the industry through customized workshops, both online and in person.
