Mapex Janus Hi-Hat System JNS980 (Single Braced)

One-piece mechanism. Efficient. (78) Read 2 reviews for this product | Rate and Review This Product

Product Description

The Janus one-piece "Transmission Hi-Hat System" patent-pending design mechanism is the logical marriage of Hi-Hat and Double Bass Drum Pedal "slave" units into one super-stable stand. The Janus Trani-Hat allows the player to easily go from Hi-Hat to Double Bass Drum Function by simply shifting a universal footboard. Efficient, space saving, and multi-functional: the Janus Trani-Hat.

About Mapex
Mapex is the factory brand name for drums made by KHS Manufacturing Company and one of only a few drum brands made in its own factory and having its own distribution center in the U.S. This Distribution and Service Center is located in Nashville, Tennessee. KHS makes all types of percussion as well as fine band and orchestra instruments. KHS craftspeople possess extraordinary knowledge about how quality sound and functions is produced from all types of wood and metal, including precious metals. The sound quality heard from Honduran Rosewood used on marimbas made in KHS factories, or from Sterling Silver and 14K Gold used in making artist-quality flutes are just 2 examples of a skill that crosses over to Mapex drums and hardware.

Mapex drums are more than wood and metallic chambers having other metal parts that tighten a head. They are precision instruments whose tuning and voicing are like no other because of KHS' unique manufacturing capability and our association with the world's top professionals. No matter what music, beat, or rhythm they play... drummers are sure to find the sound they want when they choose Mapex. You will see what they mean when they say Mapex is truly "the drummer's other voice." zZounds is an authorized dealer of Mapex products.
Comes with Hi-Hat stand, part of double-bass pedal system.

"Janus: best double bass money can buy"
Sound: the sound is in a quality of its own. when u put zildjian a custom hats on it, the structural quality shows, as the trani holds little to no vibrations. Feature: the best part about janus is that u don't have to think about where u placed your double base foot pedal. Instead of slipping your foot onto another pedal, sometimes causing error, you simply click your foot over and use the double bass function. Why didn't they think of this before? Quality: it is made of quality materials. Mine has shown no trouble and seems structurally sound for years of play. Value: compared to buying a whole hi-hat system and double bass system seperately, the $350 I spent was money well saved The Wow Factor: everyone who is anyone should try this system, i think they would switch over if they knew how well it played Overall: a great product at a great price. What's not to love?
Style of Music: rock, alternative, blues, country

"Superb, Strong, Sexy, Something Elce!"
Sound: It's got a great sound when used with almost any decent cymbal, the trani cymbal washer lets the cymbal vibrate freely ALL the time, unlike compacted old felts. Feature: Common, what more could u ask for, this is the best piece of engeneering i've seen for years. You cut down on space, it's lighter to carry then an extra left pedal and it's VERY strong, mines lasted 16months of hard metal pedalling. Quality: Well.....Hummmm.....it's superbly strong, and as with all mapex hardware, very, very sexy! Value: Value for money, yes it's great. Value in terms of general expense, quite steep and offputting for less experienced drummers i immagine. Should be in a prace range available to all so they can all groove with it. Manufacturer Support: Not needed to contact Mapex about anything regarding drums or hardware an d i've been using their products for over 20 years! The Wow Factor: Yes, Yes, Yes...Fully recommended!!!!!!!!! Overall: This is gunna last a long time, It's lasted long already but it should be untill mapex release another bright janus hihat system that i get rid of this!
Style of Music: In a band, All types of rock, as a teacher, just about everything!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
