Bearing Edge/Shell Design
Mapex started the design of Armory with the idea that players want to spend more time playing and less time tuning their drums. The result is the SONIClear Bearing Edge, which allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. This produces a stronger, deeper fundamental pitch, effortless, consistent tuning and a significantly expanded tuning range. Tuning made easy!!
For the serious player, the increased head to edge contact increases shell vibration, allowing the sonic nuances of the Hybrid shell to stand out.
SONIClear bearing edges are standard on all Armory shells.
(on Armory kits that feature black hoops & fittings)
….results in a significant increase in finish durability compared to powder-coatings found on other kits.
The 6ply 7.2mm Birch/MapleHybrid shells deliver the ultimate in tone, resonance, and punch. They allow the drums to speak quickly and project clearly in the manner of old-world drum craftsmanship.
TOMAHAWK (ARST4551CEB) comes as standard with all Armory Kits. 14″ x 5.5″/1mm high polished steel/Rounded 45 degree bearing edge
