“Bought a mapex saturn LA rock kit in white with black...”

Written on: 15/05/2011

Bought a mapex saturn LA rock kit in white with black hardware for my 18th birthday. 12 x 9 and 16 x 14 toms and the 22 x 20 bass drum.

The finish is absolutely magnificent, i'm not a big fan of any other of hardware except silver or brass but the black looks really great on this kit, looks really great with the white.
I replaced the black resonant head on the bass drum with a "Remo powerstroke 3 coated white" head with the black "mapex" printed logo, put a black "bass drum o' " on it… Read Full Review

“stunning finishes, sounds fantastic, highly tunable...”

Written on: 03/03/2011

stunning finishes, sounds fantastic, highly tunable (sounds great tuned up or down).

Great value for money. Top end features like isolated tom, suspension in the floor tom stands and an undrilled bass drum don't normally come cheap.

Only negative thing I can really think of is that the floor tom mounts are quite wide so wouldn't fit in my old cases. The mapex ones fit a treat though and were really affordable too so I forked out on some of those

If you want to hear a sound sample check out a… Read Full Review

Ok Here's the real deal on Mapex Saturn drums. I have played many top end kits in 30 years DW, Yahmaha RS . Not that I;m saying these drums are in the same level & tone, I will say these drums are by far the best deal & value for a kit you can find in Pro level drums, They by far blow many top brands flat away for what you get in sound that you would pay 2 x more for,. Made of Maple/Walnut the Toms produce a rich deep tone and cut & project like a MF. The Bass 22 inch has a low end deep punch. The finish is more than you would ever expect at that price point. The Mapex website does not at all do the overall finishes justice. The hardware is proven road worthy & is rock solid, The Bottom line is, Do yourself a favor & pay a fair price for a top end kit that is True pure value for the buck!

Overall the Saturn is an awesome kit especially for the price, when I first got mine, set it up and tuned I was playing it in the house and first I was a little disappointed with the sound, but once I got it out in a practice venue and let loose with the sticks the sound was incredible. The toms have a beautiful deep tone and the bass really kicks! Fantastic sounding kit that is easily tuned to your preference. Sturdy and reliable hardware. A real eye catcher too, I got mine in Krystal Krush… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2009

I've had lots of top of the range kits, DW, Sonor, Yamaha etc. This is my first Mapex and I'm blown away by it. It sounds and looks absolutely fantastic. Sounds great at any tuning even with factory fitted emperors. I usually try different heads on new kits but no need to with this one… Read Full Review

“I bought this kit for my studio and I'm glad I did....”

Written on: 14/01/2008

I bought this kit for my studio and I'm glad I did. The tuning possibilities are endless! I generally spend time with the drummer before the recording date to find out how he wants to sound etc. Nine times out of ten they choose my Mapex Saturn Pro's, and leave their drum kits in the car. To me, It's all about the tone! This set can do anything! The bottom line is, you would have to buy 2 or 3 different sets in order to get the versatility of this one Saturn! I like everything about this kit… Read Full Review

The Saturn Kit is Pro kit that sounds & looks wonderful, The price is unbelievable for the quality you receive, more that half the price of a DW kit . The Maple/Walnut combo is a rich deep warm & loud sound, This is no jazz kit for the most part,, If your looking for a smoking deal with quality & a rock sound, road ready with a finish that looks over the top, you should not over look this kit. In my opinion after months of looking & listening, Mapex Saturn is the best bang for your buck on a new kit for a rock kit hands down! Save the extra money on some cymbals or stands...

I Think Mapex has the best drums for the buck and the Saturn and Orion series rival drums twice their price. Very high quality drums at an affordable price. I can play anything I want and I chose Mapex and I am glad I did. Jimmy Hunter… Read Full Review

The Saturn drum Kit is wonderful sounding to say the least. The tone of the toms are deep & warm with punch at a price that will blow you away! The 22 inc bass has a deep full boom that will make your jaw drop. Snares are a personal choice for most,,, If you are looking for a real Pro kit that"s road ready & looks great, this is it.. This kit is loud warm & deep with great attack for a real deep true rock sound! What you get with this kit is real pro kit that is almost as good as , or equal to a DW for half the price.
