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 of a thunderous 22”x16” kick drum, 10” x 7”, 12” x 8” 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.
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.
Durable, smart finish
The Tornado kit features a wrap style finish. This cover of vinyl is highly durable and ensures that the kit keeps a 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.
