Mapex Armory Shell Pack (2021) Review

Here’s a review of the Mapex Armory series ‘Rock’ shell pack from sister site Drummer’s Review, featuring…

  • 22″ x 18″ bass drum,
  • 10″ x 8″ rack tom,
  • 12″ x 9″ rack tom,
  • 16″ x 16″ floor tom,
  • 14″ x 5.5″ ‘Tomahawk’ Steel shelled snare,
  • Rainforrest Burst finish (new for 2021),
  • SONIClear bearing edges, tom suspension mounts & floor tom legs,
  • 6-ply, 7.2mm birch/maple/birch shells.
  • SONIClear tom mounts,
  • REMO heads fitted throughout.

Also featured in the video are a 6-piece ‘Studeoease’ Shell pack in Night Sky Burst, along with a full compliment of Mapex Armory series hardware (sold separately).

Mapex says…”The Armory Series is the latest realization of the Mapex hybrid shell concept. A fusion of birch and maple delivers the ultimate tonal expression, and the SONIClear bearing edge allows the drumhead to sit flat, bringing out the best response by optimizing the relationship between head and shell.”
