The Mapex Saturn is one of our favourite shell combinations featuring their ever popular Maple/Walnut Hybrid. Here we have a Saturn IV (pre-loved) in one of the most striking finishes - Transparent Ash Burl Burst.
This configuration offers a massive 22 x 20 kick drum, the 20'' depth provides plenty of sub low end and punch, contrasting with the strong attack and short sustain of the fast 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms. The 16x14 floor tom offers plenty of focused and aggressive low end depth to compliment the powerful bass drum, making this the ideal kit for those looking for a big and bold sound. The hybrid Maple/Walnut shells come complete with black chrome hardware and a gorgeous exotic Ash Burl finish, ensuring that this kit looks every bit as impressive as it sounds.
The shells feature Mapex's unique SONIClear™ bearing edge, which allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a drum with far greater resonance and tonal clarity, along with a deeper, more rounded tone. The SONIClear™ edge also allows for much easier tuning, and enables the drum to consistently stay in tune.
Complimenting the bearing edge are the innovative low-contact mounts. The bass drum claws and SONIClear™ tom suspension are designed to increase resonance by reducing contact and preserving vibration in the shell. The tom suspension also avoids touching the tension rods, allowing the heads to stay in tune for longer and making them easy to change.
The new lugs, the new logo, the new colours &the new suspension mounts give the Saturn IV the biggest face lift it's ever had yet the sound is a good as ever, the new size options further enhance what Saturn can deliver and this really feels like a lot of value for money yet looks as professional as the best. In a time when some companies are streamlining ranges and building techniques to cut costs, Mapex have yet again added more value and features whilst maintaining a great price point. We highly recommend checking this set out, it really does offer something unique too in terms of the attack and tone combination all delivered from and unique to the walnut.
