Default Mapex Saturn

Hi Everybody
Took delivery of this lovely thing this morning. I have spent a very pleasant day tuning it.
Bass drum is '24x"18, top tom "13x9, floor tom "18x"16.
I am very impressed by the heads it came with although I do have a set of Aquarians to go on it later. Superkick two batter,Regulator reso, Super two batters and Classic clear reso's but I do believe I shall play the stockers for a while.
I also have a Mapex Blaster snare that should go very well. In the pic is a Yamaha "14x"6.5
chromed aluminium snare which is more than fine.
I had a Pro M in the same sizes before this and to be honest I am surprised what a step up this kit is.
Cymbals in the pic are Sabian Rod Morgenstein "21 Tri Top ride, HHX "17 and "20 X-plosion crashes( also have a "19 X-plosion crash but not in the pic) and HHX "15 X-Cellerator hats.
Life is sweet-))
Paul.

Yup, beautiful drums. I own two 24's and two 26's ... I like them lows, too.

The sound of my Saturn kit is real special to me. I have 5 other kits and they all have a distinct personality.
I like all of my other kits very much but It is a moving feeling when I play and listen to the tone of my Saturns.

This same thought must be settling into your mind after a few hours of playing your new kit and experimenting.
You begin to get that good feeling that you have really stumbled onto something that is just a little bit different from the day to day.

Am I right?

Hi Everybody
I have dialled the kit right in and I am blown away.
The Saturns are as good as everyone say's.
I feel fantastic.
The bass drum is a sweet cannon. Can't wait to gig the gig later this month.
Paul.

Default Re: Mapex Saturn new addition

Hi Folks
Couldn't resist this bad boy as it is the same finish as my new kit. A splendid maple and walnut confection. I have fitted an Aquarian coated batter, Classic clear snare head and a Puresound blaster snare wire.
What a fabulous sound the snare has,like a freaking gun shot. I am so looking forward to gigging this kit next Saturday.
Life is sweet.
Paul

Skunked - that snare looks like it could inflict some serious damage. Very nice.
