The new special edition Saturn Series 7-piece shell pack in Blue Galaxy Sparkle Burst. Hardware sold separately.
The shell pack configuration is complete enough to satisfy a wide range of players. It includes a “virgin” 22x18 bass drum (with no tom mount), 8x7, 10x8 and 12x9 suspended tom toms, 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms with legs and a 14x5.5 snare drum with a Black Panther-style throw off.
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price for this limited edition shell pack (Model Number SW728SUTT) is $3,413.99.
For an extra touch of contrast, Mapex has broken away from its traditional ebony front bass drum head and outfitted this set with a coated white Remo® front head with a smaller version of the Mapex logo. Toms are equipped with clear Remo® Emperor® batter heads, while the snare drum comes with a coated Ambassador® head.
“These beautiful drum sets are going to move quickly,” said Joe Vasko, Vice President and General Manager of Mapex USA. “With the Saturn’s growing reputation for superior sound, consumers are bound to gravitate to this uniquely beautiful presentation of this very popular drum series.”
Like all Saturn Series drums, this special edition features ultra thin six-ply shells, comprised of four premium maple exterior plies and two interior plies of high-grade walnut that give the drums superior bottom end, increased resonance and a dramatically broad tuning range.
