Product Description

The Raven is the first in a series of Meridian Black kits with "Player Designed" features directly filling the needs of the modern rock drummer. This Special Edition drum set will be limited in quantity, specific in its configuration, and unique in its look.

The rich Birch/Maple shells crank out low and dark tones with a balanced attack. The inside of the shells feature the new "Interblack" finish that enhances resonance and projection. The 22"x20" Bass drum delivers massive low end and the shallow toms speak fast. The kit boasts one tom up, 12"x08", and two toms down, a 14"x12" and 16"x14", so the player can bring in their ride cymbal close for optimal performance. A 14"x06" snare drum completes the set.

The shells come wrapped in a Raven-sheen black wood grain finish, fitted with satin black hardware, and are topped with Remo drumheads. This 5 piece kit is all a player needs to be heard loud and clear, but a 10"x07" add-on tom (part of the 6-piece set, or sold separately) is available for even more rock n' roll noise.

What's Included:

Snare:
- 14" x 6"

Bass drum:
- 22" x 20"

Tom:
- 12"x08"
- 14"x12"
- 16"x14"

"Mapex Black Raven 5 piece shell kit"
Overall: My overall revies is this is a great drum kit. However,. I have not played out with it .I have only played with it in rehearsals and it is a relatively new kit to me. Here are some of the things I have discovered atat I feel are significant about the kit. The bass drum is incredible. I would recommend this kit just for the bass drum alone. It has a very deep tone and a full tone. all of my fellow musicians like it also. The snare drum is not so good .I do not like the fact that when I release the snares the drum does not fully release if I have have proper tension on the snare. I have to figure some way to accomplish this or just not use the snare drum. The toms are adequate and sound just fine. I do think that if iI replace the existing heads with other heads I can get the sound I am looking for. Overall I would rate this kit in the scale of 1-10 as a 8 -9. But for the price I would rate it as a 9 - 9.5. It is a fantastic kit for the price. You will not go wrong since you will be spending less than a $1000 on this shell kit. Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of $850 - $950 would be the price.
Style of Music: I try to play all kinds of music. I belong to a concert community band, a symphonic orchestra, a rock band that also plays r&b,

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.
