January 1, 2008 — Mapex USA announced that it will begin offering the popular Planet Z cymbal packs as an option on its VX Series, QR Series and Q Series drum sets in 2008. Planet Z Cymbals, made in the USA by Zildjian, are forged from a copper and zinc based alloy and are the perfect complement to Mapex’s entry-level drum series.

The VX and QR Series will be offered with the Z4 Pack, which includes a 20-inch ride, a 16-inch crash and a 14-inch pair of high hats. The Q Series will be offered with the Z3 Pro Pack, which includes an 18-inch crash/ride and a 14-inch pair of high hats.

“This presents an exciting opportunity for our independent dealer base and consumers alike,” said Joe Vasko, Vice President and General Manager for Mapex USA. “We can offer our dealers a single point of purchase for their quality student and starter kit needs and, in turn, our dealers can extend that offer to their customers with a complete drum set/cymbal package that’s ready to take home and play.”

Planet Z cymbals are only available with drum sets and cannot be purchased individually. Product is now in stock in all three Mapex warehouse locations (Tennessee, Texas, California) and can be ordered by authorized dealers by contacting their Regional Sales representative or contacting Mapex directly.
