Mapex announced the introduction of the Voyager Drum Set Series, an entirely new entry-level product line for 2010. All Voyager drum sets are packaged to be “ready to go” and include a full set of all new Mapex 330 Series Hardware, a padded throne, a set of new Mapex Cymbals and a set-up and instructional DVD. The all basswood drums feature newly designed appointments, including lugs, mounts, badges and bass drum claws.
The Voyager features 7.2mm, basswood shells with newly designed, low mass lugs. These small profile lugs are mounted to the shell using only a single point of contact, minimizing the holes drilled into the shell and thereby enhancing resonance. Voyager Series drums also Remo drumheads, including a self-muffling bass drum batter head.The bass drum’s tom mount features new styling and a recessed adapter to accommodate an optional cymbal arm.
All Voyager drum sets feature newly designed Mapex 330 Series Hardware. The 330 Series Cymbal Stand features Multi-Sustain Cymbal Felts, that allow players to use any combination of plastic or felt on their cymbal stands for more precise cymbal sustain. Mapex Voyager drum sets also include an instructional set-up DVD, hosted by Drumming’s Global Ambassador and Mapex Artist, Dom Famularo.
Voyager is available in Black, Burgundy, Dark Indigo, Gray Steel or Snow White covered finishes and three 5-piece configurations: Standard/VR5254TCZ (22×16 bass drum, 12×9 and 13×10 tom toms, 16×16 floor tom, 14×5.5 snare drum), Fusionease/ VR5244TCZ (22×16 bass drum, 10×8 and 12×9 tom toms, 14×14 floor tom, 14×5.5 snare drum) and Jazz/VR5044TCZ (20×16 bass drum, 10×8 and 12×9 tom toms, 14×14 floor tom, 14×5.5 snare drum).
