  • Item Details

    Shell Pack means drums only - no stands, pedals, thrones, or cymbals are included. If the toms are directly mounted to the bass drum, that mount IS included.

    The Mapex Armory Studioease Drum Set borrows many features from their Saturn IV line of drums, nicely riding the line between being affordable for the everyman and being quality enough for the professional.

    The Studioease configuration gives you a huge range of sounds to work with for really interesting grooves and fills, with a '2 up, 2 down' tom layout. The dimensions are designed to offer a wide range of tuning schemes, for drummers who need to change up their tone from gig to gig.

    The toms and bass drum feature 7.2mm thick shells made of birch, followed by maple, followed again by birch. This combo delivers the best of both kinds of wood: clarity, volume, and strength from maple, and the balance and brightness of birch.

    Each Armory shell pack includes a 5.5" x 14" Armory Tomahawk Snare Drum, made with a 1mm high polished steel shell that just screams with every rim shot. It's bright and focused, with the kind of aggressive sound that works perfectly well in all genres of rock. Not a fan of the steel snare drum? No problem - take advantage of the Armory Snare Trade-In Program to swap your Tomahawk for any of the other Armory snare drums!

    The SONIClear 45-degree bearing edges on every drum are fully rounded on the outside, designed to keep heads from sitting too high like they do on older, thinner bearing edges. This results in more resonance from the shells, giving you a clearer tone with each hit. The sound is fuller and bigger than it would be otherwise.

    With SONIClear bearing edges the heads are also able to vibrate more freely, and that means longer decays and the elimination of dead sounds. It's also far easier to tune drums with heads that sit well on the bearing edges, so you don't need to have tuned drums for years to get yours to sound great.

    The 10" and 12" toms are fitted with SONIClear Suspension Systems that prevent shell vibrations from being dampened and transferred to tom arm hardware. On the 14" and 16" floor toms, SONIClear Floor Tom Feet do the same thing - minimal loss of shell vibration gets lost in the floor.

    In keeping with the 'more vibration' theme, all Armory bass drums are virgin, keeping your bass as beefy as it can be. Don't worry about setting up the toms, because Mapex has included tom arms and clamps that you can attach to any cymbal stand.

    Insulated bass drum claws prevent any metal-on-wood contact, keeping your equipment in pristine condition and keeping rattles out of your sound.

    Armory drums are available in several beautiful finishes. Three of the finishes (Transparent Black, Mantis Green, Magna Red) include black hoops and fittings that have been electro-plated rather than powder coated for more durability.

    Drum Dimensions:

    • Virgin Bass Drum: 22" x 18"
    • Toms: 10" x 8", 12" x 9"
    • Floor Toms: 14" x 14", 16" x 16"
