MAPEX Armory ShellSet AR628S, Purple Haze #BUP, Black HW

Professional drums at a small price!

The Mapex Armory Shell Set AR628S comes in the matt Purple Haze finish with chrome hardware and has an extremely noble look. The hybrid shells made from birch and maple impress with warm projection and defined attack as well as sensitive dynamics. Other professional features of the Mapex Armory Shell Set AR628S are SONIClear bearing edges and suspension system. The name Armory for the Mapex drum series is no coincidence, because the Armory drum sets are indeed "armed" with professional features that make these sets loyal companions for studio and stage. With the Armory series Mapex proves again and again that good quality does not have to be expensive.

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.
