All Mapex products are hand built and hand assembled by the artisans at its wholly owned factory. The people at Mapex have earned a distinguished reputation for designing, engineering and building the highest quality acoustic drums. Mapex selects only the finest raw materials to build its drums. Premium grade hardwoods like maple, walnut, birch and basswood are hand-selected from worldwide sources and are then matched by skilled experts to ensure that every drum Mapex produces carries with it, the signature tonal and resonant properties that define the distinctive Mapex sound.
Mapex not only wants you to sound your best, you need to look great too. On all of its painted drums, Mapex finish experts hand apply an eight-coat, hand-rubbed, high-gloss lacquer to each shell. Mapex finishes are durable, easy to maintain and will help make you the envy of your drumming community. Every Mapex drum, regardless of price, is built to exacting specifications.
The result is a drum that you take on stage or into the studio with complete confidence that your style and creativity will be not only perfectly reproduced, but enhanced. With your Mapex drum set, your talents and personality will be faithfully delivered to your audience, whether you’re playing to a crowd of twenty or twenty-thousand. You’ll ultimately take as much pride in owning a Mapex drum as the expert builders did when it was made.
