The VX Series features basswood shells with a lacquered exterior maple veneer for a unique look and awesome sound. Basswood is an excellent hardwood for instrument making. Its sonic properties are very similar to maple, yet it possesses a little warmer tone that’s similar to birch. This year, we’ve added a beautiful exterior maple veneer to the shell to allow the transparent lacquer to accentuate the wood grain.
Mapex selects only the finest woods for its shells. With individual plies less than 1 mm thick, the result is overall stronger and thinner shell. The seams are staggered around the shell, providing additional strength and acoustic distribution. Each drum is finished off with a precision-ground 45° bearing edge, counter-cut at 0.5mm for optimum tone. The Mapex Isolated Tom System protects the shell’s integrity and allows toms to vibrate freely, ensuring maximum projection and resonance. The Mapex Isolated Tom System is discrete and visually attractive and adds very little weight to the drum. Mapex drums use single point contact lugs. Only one hole is drilled into the shell for each lug, protecting the shells’ tonal properties. The lugs are low in mass as well, meaning less direct contact with shell, also protecting the overall integrity of the drum. Mapex 550 series Performing Artist Hardware comes with OS Cymbal Accentuators. Minimal contact with cymbal gives you maximum sustain. Unlike felt, the OS Cymbal Accentuator won't compress or shred and enjoy a longer life.
Mapex drums are exclusively equipped with Remo drum heads. Like Mapex, Remo is a worldwide symbol of quality manufacturing and premium performance.
