Mapex Mars Shell Packs for $599
Mapex Unveils Soniclear Bearing Edge
The SoniClear bearing edge is standard on all Armory shells and allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range. Just watched a Mapex rep tune a drumhead in literally seconds perfectly in tune to a much lower pitch than was previously possible. The new bearing edge really does make the head sit more stably! Pretty cool stuff. More to come from the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.
