"Mapex Armory Series, Black Dawn Finish"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I had been playing a second hand Premier kit for the last 10+ years as my regular, with quality DW hardware I've built up during that time. I've been ready for new shells for quite sometime. I've played on just about all the major brands. DW, Tama, Pearl, Luds etc.. I had been eyeing the Mapex Armory for over a year. Really liked the clear black.. Over the last year I looked at them, watched and "listened" to vids of these kits out of the box. I liked what I heard. Almost a month ago I got online and saw the Black Dawn finish.. I drooled a bit looking at it.. Thought about it. And, well pulled the trigger.. A week later they were in my hands.. Next day, I assembled the 2 drums I needed to, and swapped my shells on my hardware.. a little tuning and I was set. Played by myself for about an hour and a half.. Next day 3 hours with my band. They sound great, tone is on point, projection is great, the rest of the band actually had to turn up.. For the price, these shells can't be beat.. I'm actually considering a second set for my residence, neighbors might hate me, but oh well.. if I could post a pic of them here I would.
