These are my 2002 Mapex Pro M's in Blue Ice as they called it. Photographed right after I got them. It's my main one and only kit. Still play and look great, but I take great care of them.
22' Kick
12' 13' toms 16' Floor
14x5.5 matching snare came with the kit but my main snare is a 14x5.5 Brass Pearl Sensitone.

I picked up a second kick for my Saturns a few weeks back. Kind of an impulse buy, saw it on Ebay and couldn't keep myself from bidding on it. I used to own a double bass M Birch a few years back, guess I really missed that second kick.

Pics to follow once I get the setup fine tuned.

Default Re: Show us your Mapex kits!

Hey guys, recently joined this forum. So forgive me if my response layout is a little wacky.

Recently been switching around some kits. Been rotating out a 1976 Slingerland kit (24,14,16) to a recently sold Blue Ludwig Vistalite 76' (24,13,16). I really was not impressed with the Vistalites, terrible bearing edges, over all quality was not impressive, however. Best sounding bass drum. I sold that kit for a low price, but bought an almighty Mapex Saturn Kit. The kit I found on Kijiji (Canadian version of craigslist) was interesting. Its a funky blue sparkle color, textured finish. Both the finish and the texture I am not huge fans of. But because of the low low price on the kit, for what I was getting, and the massive sizes, I was drawn into it.

My fascination with Mapex started when I bought a Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob snare. The perfection on the craftsmanship with that drum sparked my interest within the company. Then I purchased the Falcon Pedal. Another juggernaut. So with those two solid purchases in mind, I made the 2 hour journey for the mysterious Saturn kit.

As soon as I saw the kit I was sold. The guy I bought it off of was the second owner, could have fooled me. No scratches, nothing. 800 dollars later - the kit was mine. An unheard of price for a Saturn kit.

Now if anyone has any information on this kit, or knows anyone with the other finish let me know. Id be highly interested in a trade for the rootbeer finish. After contacting a rep at Mapex, I found out - The kit was only made in Europe, not retailed in North America, and is 1 out of 100....

That being said, I think I have found a kit Im going to be sticking with for a while.

If anyone has any other informaiton, or experiences with these kits let me know. I love it.


Mapex Saturn "Sub-Sonic" 24x20,14,16,18. Maple/Walnut Shells

New to this forum, but been drumming for 30+ years now (wow!). Own a Tama Starclassic, and a set of Ludwig psych reds, but I can't stop playing this Mapex M Birch that I picked up recently. It's of course used, but looks brand new and sounds fantastic. The finish is stunning (to me) and maybe just because it's new to me, it is my go to set. I absolutely love the sound, and was very pleasantly surprised to like the 14" suspended floor tom. Thunderous! Anyway, look forward to posting more in the future, but here's a couple pics for now. Kind of crummy, but I'll get some new shots out shortly. Peace!

I picked up this M Series all maple kit last year. They are the 2004 M Series before they started using Birch. The color is solid black.

9 ply maple
deep toms
glued on Mapex badge
Solid lacquer finish


The 10" is not Mapex. Watching EB, CL etc for a matching 10" maple M Sereis. I would be happy getting that drum even if I have to get it painted piano black. I could go with the M series Birch or the M Pro maples but holding out for the M series maple. Not many around though.

I still have these but they may go on the block in the not too distant future. Nothing wrong with them other than after 7 years I think I want a new tone and vibe.

I think I saw that kit. I bought mine locally in the beginning of October and almost immediately saw the same type kit on ebay, parted out. I contemplated (briefly) grabbing the 16" floor tom but restrained myself!

Default Re: Show us your Mapex kits!

A while ago I posted my Mapex 2004 M Series (Maple) kit. After a lot of research I found them to be a combination of shells, hardware, and paint (solid) that was hard to find. I had an off brand 10" tom that I recently replaced with a Mapex M (birch) 10". It has the same hardware but birch shell and transparent paint. So I went about painting it after a ton of research on here and some good advice from members on here and another forum that has a lot of Mapex users. So here are the results.

Some lovely looking kits popping up in here - that red sparkle saturn finish is outstanding!

To everyone apologising for ressurecting an old thread don't fear - it's better that this one continues to be used rather than a new one being made all the time.

On a side note I've added a 16" FT and a Black Panther Blaster to my set since last I posted:

Nice set up. I'm assuming your groove ride and hats are in brilliant finish. I got my 13" groove hats in brilliant and just recently got a 21" groove ride in natural finish. I kind of wish I got my hats in a natural finish OR got a larger size (14" or 15") for more of a defined chick

Default MAPEX SATURN IV MH EXOTIC NATURAL ASH BURL

Hello to everybody, I'd like to introduce you my new drum kit.

This is the drum kit of my dreams. I've always been a Mapex lover since I got my first drums, a second hand Mapex Saturn kit with Maple/Basswood shells from around 1992.

In the while I've owned a Yamaha Stage Custom kit and a Chameleon PDP kit, which both were sold to buy this new shinning beauty from Mapex (I still keep the first Saturn kit).

The sizes of the drums are:

08"x08" tom.
10"x08" tom.
12"x09" tom.
14"x14" floor tom.
16"x16" floor tom. (Sometimes transforms into bassdrum for small gigs)
20"x16" bass drum.

I bought a couple of Black Panther snares when they hit the market. A 14"x 03" 1/2 and a 14"x 08". I've recently acquired a vintage snare of 3" 1/2 x14" (aprox) from a Luthier from Barcelona, my hometown, named RAF, and I'm waiting for my matching Saturn IV 5" 1/2 x 14" snare. I also have a 13"x6" 1/2 MPro, which came out from a 13"x11" tom. The rest of the shell will soon become a 13" piccolo snare.

My cymbals are all Zildjian but a Stagg 14" china, and a Stagg 6" Black Metal Bell.

Cymbals are:
06" Stagg Black Metal Bell.
06" Zildjian Avedis Splash.
08" Zildjian K Splash.
10" Zildjian A Custom Splash.
14" Zildjian K Custom Dark Hi Hat or 13" Zildjian KZ Dyno Beat Hi Hat.
14" Stagg China.
16" Zildjian A Custom Crash.
16" Zildjian Z Custom Rock Crash.
17" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash.
18" Zildjian Oriental China Trash.
20" Zildjian K Custom ride or 20" Zildjian K Heavy Ride.

I also use LP Hi Hat Tambourine, LP 25 Bars curtain, and a Pearl "Horacio el Negro" Cowbell.

I would like to share it with you. hope you enjoy the images, you can find a few more in my profile if you want. Thanks for watching.

I'll have to post a picture of my Velvetones when I get home, I absolutely love the finish and tone of them. It took one hit on the small tom to convince me it was the set for me, now if I could buy a second kick drum...

Hey All-

Been away for a while, since I sold my last kit..
Just got this Mapex Mars kit for myself. So good to be drumming again!
I must say after a proper tuning session, these sound fantastic! Even with the stock heads (Ambassador-type made by Remo). I am loving the pst7's as well! Sounds like the 2002's I hear in my head all the time. I know the Mars series is not top of the line, but I am digging the look and sound. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the DW 3000 series hardware, but no real complaints.

That is one pretty kit. Normally I wouldn't go for a color like that, but it works with that kit. Very nice.

Hey, what's up guy's and gal's? my name is Ryan and I'm new here on Drummerworld Forum. I wanted to say hello to all the drummers on here and especially the Mapex players. I FINALLY HAVE MY KIT.

My Saturn IV's in Cherry Mist. The 8x7" tom is from my Sonor kit though, almost the same finish. I've ordered the 8x7" tom for the Saturn kit, but it took some months to deliver... Cymbals are mostly Paiste 2oo2/Rude/Alphas, with a couple of Meinl ones as well. The bassdrum logo is for my band, www.mecalimb.com , made by drumsigns.de. I also got a couple of the new Mapex stickers and modified them to fit a bit better with these heads (cut out the big M part, both over and under the Mapex letters).

My Orion. Sizes are 20x18, 14x14 and 12x9. I put new heads on it a few days back, and thought a picture was appropriate.

Default Saturn lV RBH sparkle..

There is something just differnt about Mapex. Some kinda special sauce? I dont know. Thinking back some years when I playing on a borrowed M Birch and how great those drums sounded. Spin forward to this year..




Freakin' LOVE these drums!!!!
