Both are solid mid range kits. The Tama is maple and the Mapex is a combo of maple and birch. I personally like Mapex better and prefer their finishes but you can't go wrong either way. I also like that Mapex gives you a choice of snare drums with their Armory kit.Hi everyone,
I'm about to buy a new set of drums, but I can't decide between the Mapex armory and the Tama Superstar Hyperdrive kits. What do you recommend?
Thanks in advance.
