Together with respected artists around the globe, Mapex has re-imagined their flagship Saturn line. The Mapex team has created the next evolution of the Saturn line, featuring a host of upgrades including: tom suspension mounts, low-contact bass drum claws, Memory Mark bass drum spurs, new style-badge and lug casing, free-floating bass drum mount (optional), and some striking new finishes.
Created to perform in any music genre and featuring a unique, thin maple and walnut shell, the Mapex Saturn produces deep, rich tone recognized by thousands of players as the Mapex Sound. The Saturn MH Edition features Mapex 6-Ply snares and toms, and 8-ply bass drums constructed of North American maple and walnut hybrid shells with chrome hardware. Additionally, these shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads.
Cymbals, hardware and snare sold separately.

I WAS LOOKING AT GETTING THE YAMAHA LIVE CUSTOM DRUM SET, BUT AFTER DOING RESEARCH I DECIDED TO GET A MAPEX SATURN IV EXOTIC, THE CHERRY MIST BURL. BOY AM I GLAD I DID!!! I HAVE NOT HEARD BETTER SOUNDING FLOOR TOMS IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. THIS DRUM SET WILL BY FAR EXCEED ALL YOUR EXPECTATIONS. AND CONSIDERING THE PRICE I DON'T KNOW WHY ANYONE WOULD BY ANYTHING ELSE. I GOT THE STANDARD SETUP BUT WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT THE SHORT TOMS AND DEEP BASS DRUM OPTION SOUNDS LIKE. SHOOT AT THIS PRICE I MIGHT JUST GO BY THAT ONE AS WELL. DON'T GET ME WRONG THE YAMAHA LIVE CUSTOM IS A WONDERFUL SOUNDING KIT, BUT THIS SATURN IS A FLAG SHIP!!! THE SOUND I GET FROM THE MAPLE / WALNUT SHELLS IS VERY UNIQUE, I LOVE THIS KIT. DID I MENTION IT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! PICTURES DO NOT DO THE KIT JUSTICE. IF YOUR ON THE FENCE JUST GET IT. YOU WONT BE SORRY, MAPEX HAS STEPPED UP THIER GAME AND THEY ARE NOW A SERIOUS PLAYER IN THE DRUMMING WORLD.
