Default Mapex Meridian Maple 7piece???

Hey,
Does anyone have a the Mapex Maple 7piece kit? Possibly pics?

I have checked out the Mapex pics thread, no luck.

I'm hoping to get my hands on one of these in the next couple of weeks, but no one has one set up that I can see.........

i own a Mapex Pro M maple kit. that was the name of the series before they renamed it Meridian.

it is a great sounding kit. best kit i've owned yet by far and i've had top of the line Ludwig, Rogers and Tama kits along with a 1991 Mapex Orion maple kit i still have.

you cannot go wrong with a maple Meridian kit, believe me. excellent bang for the buck for sure!!

here's a couple pics of my Pro Ms.

Thanks NickG.
I haven't heard a bad word about the Mapex Meridian yet and I've been looking for a while now.
Great looking kit by the way

I have a Mapex Pro M four piece that I use at all my gigs...got it and a set of DWs at the same time, and ended up selling the DWs because I like my Mapex so much!

The Meridian 7 piece is set up different to all of the above.
It's 8",10"&12"tom toms, 14"&16"floor toms 14" snare and 22x20"virgin bass.
The tom tom are all mounted on stands.

I am undecided on the color still??????

I've done it!
My 7 piece has been ordered and I'm picking it up in a week and a half.

It happens to be in the same color as dairyairman's kit

I'll get some pictures up when my toms get in in the near future (late January)

In the mean time. Here at the current pictures of the kit
