Mapex Armory ShellSet AR529S Purple Haze #UP

Professional Mapex drums at a top price!

The Mapex Armory ShellSet AR529S Purple Haze #UP with Black Hardware is a high quality drumset with a noble finish. The hybrid shells made from birch and maple impress with warm projection and defined attack as well as sensitive dynamics. Further professional features of the Mapex Armory Shell Set AR529S are the SONIClear bearing edges and the suspension system, which allows unhindered resonance of the shell and easy tuning, especially at low frequencies.

Please note that the pictured hardware and the cymbals are not included in the scope of delivery!

Mapex Armory: Hybrid shell

The Armory series is based on the hybrid shells made from birch and maple. Due to the arrangement of the woods (outer and inner layers birch with maple in between) the Armory drums develop an extraordinary resonance and a strong punch. The shells respond very quickly and sensitively and allow a very dynamic playing style.

SONIClear bearing edge

The "SONIClear" bearing edge is a further innovation for the Armory drums. The strongly rounded edge ensures an increased head-to-shell contact, which takes the shell tonally into account and emphasises the natural sound of the shell and wood. Furthermore the tuning of the Armory shells is considerably facilitated by this.

SONIClear Suspension System

The tom suspension of the Armory drums was borrowed from the much more expensive Saturn IV series and ensures unrestricted resonance of the shell. In addition, the force generated when hitting the head is held in the shell and not dissipated by the hardware. The spring-padded floor tom legs of the Armory drums have the same function.
