Excited!

19.02.2015
After 7 years on my now 15 year old cheap set, I have made the decision to get something new for me.
After a lot of research and a lot of reasoning, I chose the Mapex Mars Rock Shell Set.
Because for me it offers just the right kettle configuration between 22 "base, shorter toms and a nice 14" x6.5 "snare which simply allows a great and wide-ranging sound.

As ordered by Thomann, the order was delivered extremely quickly.

At home, I have inspected everything meticulously.
The processing is really very well done, the kettles make a very high quality impression and the Blackwood Finisch is a real highlight in Natura.

The standard remo skins are the toms and the base are also OK, only for the snare I would recommend a different Schlagfell.

A special feature of this set is the Tom-suspension.
Through the ball joints, the toms can be freely adjusted, a real luxury compared to my old set.
The unbored recordings on the toms are a great solution and do not distort the sound in any way.
Many adjustment possibilities on the set are simply very user-friendly realized. Really at the place a big praise to Mapex!

I was looking forward to the highly acclaimed Sonic Clear Gratung. #
This is sold in my eyes by Mapex as a USP for this set.
The vote was really quite pleasant and lighter than usual, but as simply expect no revolution.

The only real shortcoming in my opinion is the mechanical processing at the snare. The built carpet does not look as high-quality compared to the rest and the mechanics to the carpet to loosen and put is wobbly and makes a cheap impression. Since I have already seen much better solutions.
This has no influence on the playing behavior or the sound.

Because this is really the only small Contra on the set for me, and the rest is just thrilled, I can not even pull a star for it.

In summary, I am more than enthusiastic about this set, the optics, the sound and the setting possibilities are first class no preference whether for the Proberaum or the stage.
I would get it back at any time!

A good product

screetch, 15.04.2015
Excellent tone drum heads (except snare drum) are a bit "light" and to change, the timbre of the snare is also a bit small and n ' Is not set correctly. For the toes and the feet, nothing to say. Price very honest. Attention, the bass drum pedal and the snare foot are not included here.
