    Mapex VENUS SERIES - "This has got to be the best beginner kit out there?!?" has images

    07/17/18

    Okay, I would be very surprised to find a better entry-level kit especially after seeing that you can buy these for $200!! I originally bought mine for drummers to come over and jam with me on guitar.….I replaced the original snare with a 1960's Slin…

    Mapex VENUS SERIES - "Mapex V Series 5pce Rock Kit"

    11/30/15

    Being drumming since 1992 and had a few kits in that time (First was a Maxwin 5pce from the 70's RIP), But by the early 2000's when that kit was no longer up to the punishment of metal drumming (Death/Grind) I needed a new kit on a budget. Went to t…

  • Mapex Brass Master Snare

    Mapex Brass Master Snare - "Nice professional snare, great for studio work but very heavy"

    12/06/11

    This is a snare that I was not expecting to like very much at all. I was involved in a studio recording with one of these snares, and I first tried to not use it. I have been let down by Mapex before, but in 2010 I helped my nephew setup a Mapex se…

    Mapex Voyager 2010 - "Nice cheap set, for someone on a budget or a young child"

    12/06/11

    I was recently shopping for a beginner set for my nephew. He seems like the kind of ten year old that will not give something up easy. That’s important for a drummer, because giving up the drums is a pain, not to mention expensive to purchase and d…

    Mapex XLS70 - DubiousDubs's review

    12/02/11

    I used one of these not too long ago for a studio recording at a pal’s studio in downtown LA. I have to say this unit was the biggest piece of trash I ever used in my life. I’ve seen and used chinese garbage before, but this thing bent one of the a…

    Mapex Brass Master Snare - moosers's review

    08/15/11

    The Mapex Brass Master Snare Drum is one that comes in a variety of different sizes and isn't part of any larger drum kit that I'm aware of. I've used this snare drum in the studio where I was the engineer and not the player, as a session drummer br…

    Mapex Chromium - moosers's review

    11/11/10

    The Mapex Chromium is a big and deep snare drum that I believe is sold on it's own and not part of a kit that I'm aware of. We have this snare drum at the studio where I work, and it's one of the ones that gets used the most from what I can tell fro…

    Mapex Black Panther Machete - moosers's review

    08/07/10

    Mapex's Black Panther Machete snare drum is a steel shell drum that is 14 x 6.5 in size. The snare drum is sold on it's own and not in any specific kit that I know about. I'm not a drummer, but as an engineer and musician playing with a drummer, I …
