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.

• The Birch/Maple/Birch 6Ply 7.2mm shell with the new SONIClear Bearing Edge allows for the direct transmission of sound, reduces unwanted frequencies and provides a strong fundamental pitch and an effortless tuning experience especially at lower tunings.
• This 5-Piece Shell pack includes 10" and 12" stand mounted rack toms, 16" floor tom, 14" snare drum and 22"x18" Kick drum
• The SONIClear tom suspension and floor tom feet increase overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and keeping stress away from the tension rods, helping the heads stay in tune.

All i can say about this kit is wow!! First of all and certainly not the most important is the finish. Absolutely stunning!!! The tone and projection for this kit is fantastic. I upgraded my heads right away, so i cant accurately comment on the sound from the stock heads. For the price these drums look and sound great. The birch and maple shells are a great combination. I have had the luxuary of playing many different kits from all different brands and the Mapex Armory is in my top 3 favourite easily.... If your looking for that pro sound and dont want to spend pro dollars, this is the kit for you. I highly recommend it.
