Saturn Evolution 5pc Shell Pack - Gun Metal Grey
The revolutionary "Halo" mount, a lateral, unique "under lug-line" suspension system, unlocks the freedom of full resonance and allows the drum to sing with an open, pure tone. The Adjustment Knob acts as a built-in Equalizer that can slightly dampen the resonance of the shell, producing a tighter and quicker decay. Whether you like to go dry in a jazz gig, or sound huge in a packed arena, the Saturn Evolution has the whole package for you.
Maple and Walnut Hybrid Shell
The evolution of Saturn
The Saturn series leaves drummers starstruck from the bright and clear tones they produce. Mapex have evolved their starter drum kit into something truly amazing with the Mapex Saturn Evolution, and it's perfect for drummers of all levels. Whether drumming at home or playing a big show, sit back, strap yourself in and prepare for blast off.
Rings of an Angel
The 10" and 12" rack toms are incredibly bright, thanks to the Halo suspension system. This is a revolutionary mounting system by Mapex in which an under-lug-line isolation mount lifts the drum to provide freedom to resonate with the purest of tones.
Maple and Walnut - the perfect blend
Maple plus Walnut equals superior quality. Maple wood offers boosted high frequencies, a slightly reduced mid-range and excellent low-end punch. It also provides a sound that's loud and cutting perfect for driving through the mix in a range of styles. Walnut provides an equal level of highs, mids and lows and projects with added warmth.
When these two combine, expect nothing but the best. The tone is backed with warmth, richness and solid attack for truly uncompromising sounds.
Mapex's shell construction offers a symphonic tone
Each of the shells in the Mapex Saturn Evolution Shell Pack sing with their own unique voice to provide the perfect overall tones. This is achieved using Mapex's Specific Shell Construction which essentially adds thickness to larger shells. In addition to this, the shell depths graduate up to half an inch with custom bearing edges to provide the perfect tone and resonance for the drum in question. This process makes a substantial difference to the shells, ensuring a fully optimised tone.
SONIClear shells with an impressive punch
Mapex's patented bearing edge technology ensures the perfect amount of contact between the drumhead and shell. This increased head-to-shell contact allows the shell to vibrate freely, therefore providing greater resonance. Additionally, the SONIClear bearing edges offer an impressive tuning range.
