Mapex

Premium grade hardwoods like maple, walnut, birch and basswood are hand-selected from worldwide sources and are then matched by skilled experts to ensure that every drum Mapex produces carries with it the signature tonal and resonant properties that define the distinctive Mapex sound. Mapex technicians are relentless in designing and producing drums and hardware that can endure performance after performance. The result is a drum that you take on stage or into the studio with complete confidence.

Remo continues to set the standard when it comes to sustainable manufacturing, laminations, and new head materials. Regularly requested by local teachers.
