Mapex drum kits are played by some of the most prestigious names in the drumming world. Despite its credentials as a ‘tool of choice’ for pro players, the brand builds quality kits at beginner level, too. The Mapex Tornado TND5294FTC Rock Fusion kit is great example of this.
Based around a standard 5-piece arrangement, it comprises a 22”x16” kick drum, 10” x 8”, 12” x 9” rack toms, a 16” x 14” 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.
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.
The Tornado kit features a wrap style finish. This cover of black vinyl is highly durable, and ensures that the kit is keeps its great appearance, whilst protecting the shells beneath.
The Mapex Tornado TND5294FTC Rock 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. This is a perfect kit for anyone who would like to take his or her first steps towards becoming a drummer.
