Mapex Unveils 2008 Limited Edition Orion Chocolate Burl [ Winter NAMM 2008 ]

United States
English
1 January 2008 — Mapex USA has just released what may be its most beautiful and sought after drum set ever. The 2008 Limited Edition Orion Chocolate Burl drum set will be sold in extremely limited quantities in North America.

The new limited edition Mapex Orion Chocolate Burl drum set.

What sets this all maple drum set apart is its exquisite exterior burl veneer. Handmade in Italy, the remarkably figured exterior ply is formed together with six North American maple plies for an ultra-thin (6.1mm), ultra-resonant shell that’s built to be enjoyed for generations.

“This is a breathtaking drum set,” exclaimed Joe Hibbs, Manager of Product Development for Mapex USA. “This is the ideal kit for the player that’s been waiting for something special to come along — because this is truly something very special.”

The limited edition is only available in six-piece component packs, including a 22x18 bass drum, 10x8 and 12x9 tom toms, 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms and a matching 14x5.5 snare drum, all featuring all-maple Orion shell construction and luxurious black chrome hardware and a classic, white coated front bass drum head.

The 2008 Limited Edition Orion Chocolate Burl (TM628SBPHNL) carries an MSRP of $5,799.99 and will only be sold by authorized Destination Mapex dealers.
