It seems Mapex is offering both a birch/walnut and a maple/walnut shell layup with the Saturn Evo line. Buyers choice I guess. Also some new finishes and a N&C inspired tom mount. Badge is the same. No more Alpi finishes, looks like satin colors. Hard to tell on the series page. Take a look. I like Mapex and hope it works for them. They're not afraid to take chances and innovate.
