Mapex AR628SFB Armory Studioease

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.

Drums only: Cymbals and hardware are sold separately.

Features:

- 6 Ply Birch / Maple / Birch
- SONIClear Edge
- Focused, Tonal, and Responsive
- SONIClear Tom Suspension
- MyDentity Lug - Included Armory Tomahawk Snare Drum

The Birch/Maple/Birch 6Ply 7.2 mm shell with the SONIClear Bearing Edge allows for the direct transmission of sound, reduces unwanted frequencies and provides a strong fundamental pitch and an effortless tuning experience especially at lower tunings.

Includes:

- 10" x 7" rack tom
- 12" x 8" rack tom
- 14" x 12" floor tom
- 16" x 14" floor tom
- 14" x 5.5" snare drum
- 22" x 18" bass

The SONIClear tom suspension and floor tom feet increase overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune.

Choose the "Drum Pack" option to bundle your Armory kit with hardware, a revolutionary KickPort pack and a comfy drum throne.

The KickPort Drum Insert

This insert provides exactly what you want from your kick drum, more punch, more bass and less ring. Based on the design of a subwoofer, the KickPort enhances the low end you feel, even lower than your ears can hear. Limiting the amount of dampening to the head, the KickPort allows the drum to resonate beautifully providing the best possible tone for your kick drum. Get rid of those pillows or blankets that choke the vibrations of the shell and use a KickPort for the best sound around.

What is the end result? And how does it work?

You get a much richer tone by allowing your drum to use more of its own voice, giving it more punch by enhancing the low frequencies, adding warm compression, and increasing resonance inside the drum.

What does that mean to you behind the kit?

Simply more punch, better batter head response, a much improved kick presence for the audience via your live or studio engineer. More so, you will feel and hear all those beautiful things whether or not you are mic’d up.

KickPort Drum Insert Features:

- Made For Drummers By Drummers
- More Bass, More Punch, Less Ring
- Based on the Design of a Subwoofer
- Head Dampening Reclaims the Resonance of your Shell
- Get Rid of Those Pillows and Blankets

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awsome Drums!!!"
Overall: To start with zZounds is fantastic. I ordered this kit on a Friday night and it was in my music room Wednesday Morning!!! Now to the drums, these are not what i am used to playing. I've always played big deep drums so for me tuning took a little getting used to,that being said once i adjusted to tuning a little higher these drums were extremely easy to tune!!! They sound awsome!!! The finish is flawless and absolutely stunning!!! I have been playing for over 30 years and must say these are some of the best sounding and playing drums i have used in this price range. They have great attack and sustain. I highly recommend these drums.
Style of Music: Rock,pop, and country
