In any musical genre, there's just no replacement for percussion. As a drummer, you're the one that the rest of the band looks to for keeping the rhythm and laying the foundation for all their instruments. And though the sound of drums is one-of-a-kind, that doesn't mean there's only one kind of drums - far from it. Thankfully, it's not hard to spot a great set of drums when you see it, and Mapex shell packs are the perfect examples to showcase that. Paired up with your favorite stands, whether it's at home or onstage, the shell packs in this section will definitely hit the right note.
Of course, just looking at a set of drums isn't enough to judge them - you've got to hear them, too. So while you're browsing this section, feel free to listen to the work of drummers like Nick D'Virgilio, Chris Adler and Chris Pennie. These are only a few of the pros who kick it with Mapex, so if you want to sound as good as they do, there's no better place to start than here.
