Drum Set from Mapex belonging to the Meridian Birch series

Mapex USA announced the introduction of the Meridian Birch Drum Set Series for 2009.


All Meridian drum sets feature newly designed appointments, including lugs, mounts, badges and bass drum claws.

The Meridian Birch features 6-ply, 7.2mm, all birch shells with newly designed lugs for overall lower mass. Meridian Birch drums also feature Mapex 2.3mm Steel Powerhoops and Remo UT heads.

The Meridian Birch’s bass drum claws are designed to be low in profile and include rubber gaskets to protect the bass drum hoops. The bass drum’s tom mount features new styling and a recessed adapter to accommodate an optional cymbal arm.

Meridian drum sets feature Mapex 700 Series Hardware. The 700 Series has many features that are new to Mapex hardware including the “Super-Glide stepless cymbal tilter” and “Multi-sustain Cymbal Felts”, that allow the player to use any combination of plastic or felt on their cymbal stands.

Models & Pricing
The Meridian Birch is available in eight hand lacquer finishes and seven configurations, featuring five and six-piece set-ups. All include 700 Series hardware. MSRP ranges from $1,539.99 for a six-piece Studioease configuration to $1,229.99 for five-piece set-ups, including the new “SRO” configuration. The SRO has 22×18 bass drum, 10×8 and 12×9 rack toms, a 16×16 floor tom with legs and a 14×5.5 snare drum.

The new Mapex Meridian birch series also includes a line of add-on components that include a wide range of toms and a double-bass add-on pack. All Meridian drum sets include an instructional set-up DVD.

The Meridian Birch Series replaces the Mapex M Birch product line, which has been discontinued.
