The Pro M Series features all-maple shells and the Mapex Isolated Tom Mount System that ensures maximum shell resonance.
“The introduction of the Studioease configuration is a natural response to the growing demand for configurations with floor toms,” said Joe Vasko, Mapex USA Vice President and General Manager. “We expect this configuration to be very well received.”
Mapex is introducing two new lacquer finishes to the Pro M Series. Sienna Burst is a grain-enhancing honey-to-brown burst and Sapphire Burst that fades from a transparent sapphire blue to black. Like all Mapex lacquer finishes these new colors are hand applied and hand buffed to a deep, high-gloss shine.
Mapex has also extended its “Buy the Kit, Get the Cat” promotion for a third year. In 2008, purchasers of or any 2008 model Pro M are rewarded with a free Black Panther 13x6 Maple and Cherry Snare Drum finished in Transparent Black lacquer.
