Love It

Stiv Black, 23.08.2017
I've been playing for 5 years now and this is the first acoustic set I bought . I spent about a month searching for a BIG , GOOD and NOT expensive drum set .
Mapex Mars Big Rock does it all .
The drums can sound HUGE and with a lot of sustain if you put the right heads on and tune them properly . The 24 x 16 bass drum is HUGE but also focused ( if you want it ) .
Although they are huge , keep in mind that most big band drummers used HUGE drum sets ( 28 x 14 Gene Krupa ) and they could play as quiet as the wanted . So yes you can play quiet or loud depending of your style , the drum heads ( they make a HUGE difference ) and the tuning
Don't listen to the sound samples on thomann ( Sorry Thomann ) or youtube , they make the drums sound flat and with no power . The snare drum is ok BUT if you change the drum heads ( bottom as well ) you can make it sound superb like a 250 euro snare drum .
So
GREAT SOUND
GREAT QUALITY
GREAT DRUMS
