Default My new Mapex Satruns in supernova red sparkle!! Love em!

Posted them in the wrong section already! Still working on getting the "right" sound from the 16" floor. I'm sure if I played them somewhere other than my "drum room", they'd sound very different. Concrete floor and two concrete walls with floor joists above me, an uninsulated garage wall and an insulated interior wall....... The pics do the drums justice, would be wicked if I had some real lighting in the room.

Very nice looking drums, but you won't be able to get their full impact until you subdue the reflections in your room. Primarily the cement floor, ceiling and walls.But you already know this.

Enjoy.

That finish is outstanding.
Enjoy.
P.S. Now you have to finish the practice area to fit with the drums :)

Great looking kit, are they the maple/walnut or the birch/walnut?

Very nice, thats my favorite Saturn color.. I have the rootbeer burst and I also have them in my basement with cement floor and 3 cement walls. Clear Pinstripes on top and G2's on the bottom and they sound very good for the room conditions, although when I play them out I put the stock reso's back on the toms.

Congrats bro thats a real Beauty. Enjoy!

It takes a while to dial in the Saturn's.
It took me a few weeks before I understood mine.
I liked them right from day one but I knew that there was more to them than meets the eye so to speak.
I wound up with single ply coated G1's for batters over the stock Remo reso's.
I like them tuned on the tight side with the reso just slightly higher than the batter on the mounted tom and I tune the floor tom with the reso about equal. I found that if I pushed the tension on the floor tom reso the drum kind of lost it when tuned tight.

Been playing a little more often lately, which isn't saying much compared to most of you guys. I can't really justify finishing my room as there's a huge heating and cooling unit in it and two concrete walls. I'm just glad I have this room or I wouldn't be playing at all. Our next house will have a more suitable room for me to play in period. We're hoping to move to the Asheville/mountain area of North Carolina in the next year or so, God willing.
Still haven't tried my EC2's or the coated G2's yet. I've been practicing with some Etymotic in ear noise killing phones, so I can't really hear how they sound. If I ever land a real gig, I'll buy mikes and whatever is needed to run the drums into that mix.

That is nice kit. I have exactly the same snare drum. Have fun with them. Peace and goodwill.

Bitchin' finish. It looks like a wrap and a fade at the same time. Never seen anything like it.

I think these would look better positioned so the badges weren't facing the audience.

Not possible with the rack toms as they are double badged.

Maybe we need lessons so that we can face the badges away from the audience?

Just move the tom mount if the badges annoy you.

You can face the badges away from the audience, but it means you facing the back of the stage too!

Not with these suspension-style mounts. It is a simple matter to realign the drum inside the hoops. Then again, maybe the owner likes these badges. I think they look big, intrusive and cover the amazing finish on the shells. No one in the audience will really care if it's a genuine certified Mapex kit anyway.

Fancy giving us a lesson on how to re-arrange Mapex Saturn badges?

Wow what a great looking set. I love the 2 up 2 down set up. I'm looking at getting that same set up in the sienna fade.

Again very nice

Right enough, so you can, hadn't thought of that (haden't taken into account taking the drum apart). But then, I rather like them facing out fromt.
