Re: Mapex help

I believe this could be a re wrapped kit. I stick by the Mars series predict.

Re: Mapex help

My guess is a late 90's to 2005ish Mars series kit. Prob birch/poplar blend shell. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Whatever it turns out to be... bet it sounds good.

Re: buying all new

Outstanding looking kit! I have always been a fan of white drums. So classy.
Also dig the shorter stack toms and your choice in cymbals. Great kit you got goin there!!

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I have to chime in here. I am currently in almost exactly the same situation with an MCX 6ply maple kit. Lifeless, muted just really generic sounding. I have tried several different heads/tunings....

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I will have to say that I have gained loads of respect for Mapex as a brand. This kit is among one of my faves.. Just all around. Period. I have owned several of their BP snares years ago, so this...

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

You could. I mean, my A Custom ping ride sees the daily driver slot on my set up. The 20 K reg. could be used as a crash. Full time? For the right cymbal? Why not? Mine has a pretty salty...

Re: Incredibly beautiful Japanese Aria drum kit find!

Wow. Nice looking old kit! Takes me back to the day and older MIJ kits. I had some nicer ricers in the early 1980s.. Tama Imperial Star and old 1978 Yamaha tour series concert tom kit 6-18"

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

I have a 20" K regular ride that sounds stellar as a big crash. Smoky and pretty cutting, great for full on edge riding.. Love the straight K series for those sweeeet rides that make BOMBER crashes.

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I'm gonna mess with 1 more head swap and a little tuning. Maybe set 'em up, 1up, 1down They are for sale now. If I can't get the offer I'm looking for, they will stay. At that point more extensive...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

My Saturn lVs are such the beast. Musical, punchy and resonance for days! The total antithesis of the MCX that is now sitting wedding caked in the drum cave.

That's great news.. Mine still sound like a herd of wet farts. No projection. Just thin and boingy. Glad you found a buyer for yours. Maybe I have to lower my price. Could be taking a bath on...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I would try contacting Greenbrier. I bought my Saturns from them.. I would think if your kit is as bad as mine, they would try to make it right for you..
