Versatile hybrid maple/birch shells with an upgraded Armory series snare.

The Armory Series by Mapex features a 6-ply birch and maple that outputs a warm, focused tone. SONIClear bearing edge, tom suspension and floor tom legs allow the heads to sit flat and increase shell resonance. Mapex Saturn IV-style lugs ensure a firm tune while providing a low-mass aesthetic.

In addition, all Armory shell packs include the 14" x 5-1/2" Tomahawk Black-Plated snare. The Tomahawk produces a bright, focused and loud backbeat and adds style to all Armory shell packs.

This purchase includes a manufacturer trade-in offer for ANY of Mapex's Armory Series four other snare drums. You'll have two weeks after your Armory kit purchase to test out the Tomahawk and, if the Tomahawk snare doesn't fit your sound, you can trade it in directly with Mapex for one of the other four Armory Snare drums at no charge.

  • Absolutely Beautiful

    As reviewed by Britt on 11/25/2014

    This is my first NEW drum set that I have purchased. I originally wanted to go with a Saturn, but and very happy with my choice in this drum set. I got it in the transparent Walnut and the Finish is stunning. It is definitely an eye catcher. The Tomahawk snare that comes with it, although not matching, compliments the entire set very nicely. I will not be switching it out. The hybrid maple/birch shells know how to bark while still staying warm enough to sooth a baby. (not literally, but you know what I mean) I am very happy with this purchase and would not second guess myself when I recommend it to anyone, whether beginner or expert. Buy this drum set. You will not regret it.

  • Fantastic!

    As reviewed by Thilo on 1/3/2015

    This drum set is probably the best thing I have bought for the price, as it has great quality, sound, aesthetics, and also it is backed up by a great company, Mapex. I never heard of them before (sadly), before I bought these drums, but absolutely love these drum. I always thought I should go for industry standards, like many others, such as Pearl, Sonor, etc. which was a false thought as this drum kit will be the best drum kit out there you can get for the price. All of the finishes are great, especially the mantis green one (which I got myself). They are all very different, yet so much better from the standard finishes you would usually get out there, especially because some of the finishes are matte, which looks killer and pokes out of the crowd. It is a reliable drum set in total, especially the super sturdy hardware (which sadly doesn't al come with the drums, but is great for the price as well), and the support from Mapex is great!

  • Wow!! What a surprise

    As reviewed by Trevor on 12/27/2014

    I am very surprised by this set. I have always been a Mapex fan but this is amazing. I play drums but I didn't have a drum set yet. I always used my dads. But this is fantastic. It has a nice dirty black/grey look with black rims and hardware. It's beautiful. It also sounds amazing. It's comes with the coated drum heads and it sounds phenomenal. I have always used the clear drum heads. This was not a disappointment. The tomahawk snare also sounds really good. Your gonna want to get some moon jell to take out the overtones. If I had to rate this from one to ten I would rate it a high 9! Great job MapexDrummer.
