Mapex Armory Shell Pack (2021) Review


Here’s a review of the Mapex Armory series ‘Rock’ shell pack from sister site Drummer’s Review, featuring…

  • 22″ x 18″ bass drum,
  • 10″ x 8″ rack tom,
  • 12″ x 9″ rack tom,
  • 16″ x 16″ floor tom,
  • 14″ x 5.5″ ‘Tomahawk’ Steel shelled snare,
  • Rainforrest Burst finish (new for 2021),
  • SONIClear bearing edges, tom suspension mounts & floor tom legs,
  • 6-ply, 7.2mm birch/maple/birch shells.
  • SONIClear tom mounts,
  • REMO heads fitted throughout.

Also featured in the video are a 6-piece ‘Studeoease’ Shell pack in Night Sky Burst, along with a full compliment of Mapex Armory series hardware (sold separately).

Mapex says…”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.”
