July 1, 2007 — Mapex has introduced an exciting new special edition VX Series drum set that is sure to attract the attention of selected genres of players. The new “Black on Black” set is a new six-piece, two-up, two-down configuration that features polished black lacquer shells outfitted with flat black lugs, hoops and fittings. The result is a dramatic looking set that promises to be particularly appealing to rock and metal drummers looking for a large, feature-filled drum set at an extremely competitive price.

The new Mapex VX Series “Black on Black” Special Edition set features polished black lacquer shells with flat black fittings and chrome accents.

“When we first saw this drum set, we knew we had a winner,” said Joe Vasko, Vice President and General Manager of Mapex USA. “We have a limited quantity of these kits available and I’m very confident that it will be one of our most popular sellers for the holiday season. I would encourage dealers to get these while they can.”

The configuration includes a 22x18 bass drum, 10x8 and 12x9 suspended tom toms, 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms with legs and a 14x5.5 snare drum. The set also comes with a full set of Mapex 320 Series hardware, including a snare stand, hi-hat stand, straight cymbal stand, boom stand, tom holder and bass drum pedal. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the drum set (VX6245BAPB) is $1,449.99.

The VX series was reintroduced in 2007 by Mapex and has enjoyed a robust rebirth thanks to a new series of popular lacquer finishes and many appointments, such as ITS mounts, not typically found on drum sets in its price range. VX Series shells are made using premium basswood plies that feature outstanding tone and resonance.
