Here’s our review of a Mapex Saturn Evolution Shell Pack, featuring…
- 22″ x 16″ bass drum – 8-ply, 8.2mm hybrid Maple/Walnut shell,
- 12″ x 8″ rack tom – 6-ply, 6.5mm hybrid Birch/Walnut shell,
- 16″ x 16″ floor tom – 6-ply, 6.5mm hybrid Birch/Walnut shell,
- Mapex SONIClear II Halo tom mount ft. under-lug line suspension system & attenuating adjustment knob to increase/decrease mount stiffness (altering sustain of the tom),
- 45-degree bearing edges top & bottom (toms),
- 60-degree bearing edges (bass drum),
- 90-degree SAS floor tom legs,
- Nodal-point air vents – two per tom, four on bass drum,
- Gun Metal Grey finish with Black Brushed Hardware.
Mapex says…“The revolutionary “Halo” mount, a lateral, unique “under lug-line” suspension system, unlocks the freedom of full resonance and allows the drum to sing with an open, pure tone. The Adjustment Knob acts as a built-in Equalizer that can slightly dampen the resonance of the shell, producing a tighter and quicker decay. Whether you like to go dry in a jazz gig, or sound huge in a packed arena, the Saturn Evolution has the whole package for you.”
