“I have been playing drums for 35 years in working...”

Written on: 27/11/2016 by MessiahYoung (1 review written)

I have been playing drums for 35 years in working bands. I have had several brands of drums. Premier, Ludwig, Sonar, and a few others. My Males 6 piece Pro M series has been my favorite. I've had them 16 years and they have seen many miles and lots of barrooms and I still get complements on them. My band opened for, Highway 101, John Michael Montgomery, Trenny Trent, and some others. It was at a large festival and all the other bands drummers asked to play my Mapex kit. The sound man said it… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/12/2010

It has been two years since my wife bought me a Mapex Pro M maple as a gift (isn't she awesome?!?!). Mine is a Fusionease 5-piece in natural finish plus an extra black panther snare. I absolutely love it! It looks great, sounds great, and even the hardware is better than I expected.

I did a lot of shopping around before deciding on this model, and I'm glad I did. I could have settled on something cheaper, but the investment was well worth it. Having a better kit just makes me want to… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2009

This is by far one of the best kits in its range; it is steady as a rock, looks damn sturdy and if you take the time to put the right heads on it it sound thunderous. You can also adjust anything to it like Octobans & concert toms, extra floor: you can do anything with it! Great, great drumkit. Koen, The Netherlands… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2009

It's interesting, one of my kits is a huge canary yellow Mapex Mars series with the vintage style tube lugs... the kit has always been a big favorite because of the low/warm tone and resonance it has being a maple and mahogany mix. I decided to replace that one with a brand new Pro-M 4-piece kit to save some room as things are getting crowded in the studio.

I was both concerned and curious about the tonal difference I could expect moving to the all maple Pro-M shells from the Mars... so I… Read Full Review

I'll put my Pro M kit against damn near any kit. As a matter of fact, I recently did a double-drum gig with a drummer playing dw drums. My kit was the only one that was heard. the guy with the dw kit was pretty pissed that he wasn't heard! I was crusin' not bustin a sweat and he was pounding the daylights out of his (good thing this gig was outdoors!)… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2009 by bigdrummin (1 review written)

I see tons of comments from people who obviously have no clue about drums, even though they claim to be players for many years. I'm a teacher and professional player for over 18 years and I say if you can't make these drums sound like a mill or two, you might want to hang it up and find something else. These drums are great. If you got the dough though, go for the bigger ticket items like the saturn or orion series.

If you're not into mapex looks, then hit up a Gretsch renown maple or USA Custom… Read Full Review

Ironman54's Response to bigdrummin's Review

Written on: 01/05/2010

You are correct about the stock heads. These drums are soooo thunderous that theres an immediate temptation to try other heads. A friend of mine was with me when I bought my maple kit. He had a 24" Super Kick II with him and so we went right to changing out the heads. Also, had Aquarian 'Response 2' for the toms. Yes, it warmed them up but, as I just found out, also got rid of what they do best: BOOM !! I found a used Remo Amb. reso lying around and so I put the stock batter back on and the Remo as reso on my 24" bass drum. It is so powerful, you tend to back off on it. Then it occurred to me "Hell, this is what I paid for !". Why tone 'em down ? The 24" kick is a freakin' cannon ! These things literally sing - they have a clear note with plenty of sustain. I guess what I'm trying to say is, yes, they sound overwhelming when practicing solo.You hammer the kick and worry that the neighbors will complain.I'm getting acquainted with my set, after owning them for 2 years now, for the 1st time - using the stock heads. Experiment with the tuning using the stock and you will be surprised. Just remember - you bought a monster of a kit. They ain't geared for light jazz.I do like the Remo Amb. 'clear' as reso on the smaller (10 + 12) toms. The coated for the 14,16 & 18. I just tried a coated Emp. batter on my 16 to compare with the stock and the Aquarian Response 2. The Emp batter with coated Amb reso is nice sounding though - more open than the Aquarian. Now - clear stock or Emp. on FT's ? I'll get back to ya...But DON'T throw out the stock heads !!

“Available in most popular configurations, the M Pro...”

Written on: 08/10/2008 by John Thompson (38 reviews written)

Available in most popular configurations, the M Pro range, despite the name, are mid range Drums, but certainly compare rather surprisingly well to more expensive brands and models.

The M Pro 'Limited Edition' set I have is constructed from North American maple, in 6 plies, with an outer skin of exotic Zebra wood (Mercedes Benz cars of the '80's used to boast this, and called it 'Zebrano) which offers a most exciting and rather tropical appearance.

Remo heads are used throughout the range… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2008 by welshwarrior (1 review written)

GET THE SATURN SERIES INSTEAD! I know the saturn series are a bit more expensive but believe me..they are amazing! I have just spent £2000 on a pearl masterworks shell pack and I'm gutted! My old Saturn kit which cost less than half of that absolutely blows it away! The Saturn kits also come with over £100 quids worth of heads, so its not really that much more than the pro m's at all… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2008 by DougieS (2 reviews written)

I picked up a Pro M snare drum on ebay recently for ..well..silly money!! I've been a semi pro player for many years and I have to say that this drum really delivers in every department. I've played some pretty damn good snare drums over the years including a Black Panther and a Sonor Designer (before they were called that) and I have to say this drum could hold it's own against any of them. I would have no qualms in recommending this snare to anybody at any level… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/10/2006 by OpethRammstein66 (1 review written)

The Mapex Pro-M drum kit series is great value for money, offering professional quality all-maple thin shells and lacquered finishes for the same sort of money as a top model Pearl Export. The hardware is sturdy, and the kit comes with a very decent pedal. The toms have a nice rounded sound, and they are loud, and have great projection, and the bass drum is about the best out there for the price - I have the "Stomp" kit, which has all big sized drums, and the 24x18" is awesome. The snare is a… Read Full Review
