Mapex drum kits are the kit of choice for players of all skill levels around the world. Despite its credentials as a ‘tool of choice’ for pro players, the brand builds exceptional quality kits at beginner level as well. The Mapex Tornado Fusion kit is a great example of the dedication and attention to detail from this world-class manufacturer.
Based around a fusion 5-piece arrangement, it comprises an 18”x16” kick drum, 10” x 7”, 12” x 8” rack toms, a 14” x 12” floor toms and a 14” x 5.5” snare. These are constructed with 9-ply poplar shells, providing great tone and tough build, to boot.
200 series hardware
Mapex also builds great hardware. The Tornado kit comes complete with a full set of its 200 series, double braced hardware. This includes a cymbal stand, hi-hat stand, ball and socket rack tom mount (which enables easy positioning of kick-drum mounted toms), plus kick drum pedal and drum throne. The kick drum itself is equipped with retractable bass drum spurs, making changing skins a more straightforward process.
To ensure that you have everything you need to start drumming, cymbals are also included. A crash/ride cymbal and hi-hats provide the essentials you will need when you begin to learn how to play.
A clean finish
The Tornado kit features a wrap style finish. This cover of vinyl is highly durable and ensures that the kit keeps its great appearance, whilst protecting the shells beneath.
The Mapex Tornado Fusion represents exceptional value. To get any Mapex kit at this price is impressive. To get an entire drumming set-up (minus sticks) is even more so. That the kit is of such high quality is the biggest surprise of all. For absolute beginners, intermediate players or even professionals that require a secondary kit to practice on, the Mapex Tornado Fusion Drum Kit is an absolute winner.
