Mapex M Series Drum Kit Reviews 5

I recently picked up one of these beauties from Rattle and Drum at Derby for a mere 499. I went for the M instead of the Mapex V mainly because of the industrial strength hardware and the great lacquered finish on the drums.

This is a superb kit for the money. The hardware is twice the size of the old Aria hardware I had before, the Bass drum seems huge, it has isolation mounts on the toms, really sturdy pedals with a 3-in-one bass drum beater - I can`t think of a bad thing to say about it.

The only downside was putting it together...it all arrived in 2 boxes. Is till can`t think how it all fitted in them.

The kit has a great looking lacquered woodgrain finish, it all hangs together really well, even the throne impressed me. (I don`t get out much though) As I have said the hardware is very good, about a foot thick and probably earthquake-proof.

I would recommend this kit to anyone looking to spend around 500 on a new kit. I had a look at other kits in this price range but nothing comes close to the Mapex M.
