Mapex launches limited edition Deep Forest Kits
At winter NAMM 2001 Mapex launched the Deep Forest project combining the
heart of the cratftsman who can see the beauty of his creation in the natural
wood before the first cut with the soul of the drummer who can hear the
perfect tone of his instrument before he begins to perform. The limited
edition drum kits of the Deep Forest series are handcrafted from select
walnut and cherry logs and are designed to meet the demands of professional
performing drummers as well as the recording engineers' needs.
Each shell is rotary cut from a single log and matched for its color and
tone before put into full drum sets. The shells of toms and snares are
5.1 mm strong and the bass drums feature 7.2 mm shells. The Deep Forest
instruments are hand rubbed with a wax finish. The Mapex Deep Forest walnut
kit is the first all walnut instrument for almost a century.
Sets come with a 14x5.5" snare drum, a 22x18" bass drum, 10x8", 12x9",14x11"
and 16x13" rack toms including hardware. Additional components are available.
The new Mapex Deep Forest drums will also be showing at the Mapex stand
in Hall 8 at Musikmesse Frankfurt.
