Mapex Artists and staff members will be hitting the road stopping in 15 cities across the USA for the Mapex SONIClear™ “Over the Edge Tour”.  The tour is the perfect opportunity for players to experience first-hand the award winning SONIClear™ bearing edge and the sound of Armory and Mars sets and Armory snare drums. Russ Miller (L.A. session artist) will be the host in 7 of the events while Rashid Williams (John Legend) will be hosting the tour in 8 of the locations.  In addition, a Mapex Armory Tomahawk snare drum will be given away to a lucky winner at each stop of the tour. 

“These 15 events will be hands-on, interactive and those in attendance will have the opportunity to talk to the people and personalities behind Mapex, all of whom are drummers”, comments Joe Hibbs, Brand Manager for Mapex Drums.

All Armory and Mars drum sets have the new SONIClear™ Bearing Edge which increases the contact between the drumhead and shell and allows the head to sit flat on the edge.  The SONIClear™ bearing edge produces a stronger and more centered pitch and makes the drums remarkably easy to tune. The end result: the player spends less time tuning and gains the ability to #PlayMore!

Armory and Mars sets offer a complete compliment of Armory and Mars hardware. The double-braced stands are heavy duty, but they’re not overbuilt. This all-purpose hardware is available in packs or as individual pieces, and comes in a choice of chrome and a special black plated finish and will endure years of constant playing and abuse. The stands are available in Chrome, Black Plated and a special combination of Chrome and Black Plated.
