I’ve been wanting a Mapex Saturn kit for a long time, so I’ve been saving my pennys and we placed the order today.

I ordered a shell pack with the 10x7, 12x8, 14x12, 16x14, and 22x18 set up.

I got the maple/walnut hybrid shells.

It looks like it will take five days or so to come in, and I can’t wait to get them.

I’m attaching a photo of a kit with the same finish to give an idea of what mine will look like.

Had a Saturn III kit in 2010, sounded phenomenal and that's before they improved the bearing edges-Great kits and you'll be surprised at how good they really sound in person Those Maple/Walnut shells far exceed their price tag in regard to their sound quality!.......Enjoy!

Very nice! I hope they are everything you're after. Do you plan to replace stock heads? I don't know what comes on Mapex these days.

GAS is a terrible thing to waste money on ESPECIALLY when it's not needed

It’s amazing the United States is upside down the world‘s falling apart, yet everybody’s buying drum sets while they’re at the highest price’s possible …. Got to love it!


Absolutely beautiful drum set , you have no idea how tremendous that’s going to sound when you get it home , people can only move sideways from your sound no one will be able to top it, enjoy brother!

Congrats! My daughter is a couple of years into her Saturns, and loves them as much as she did the first day.

Congratulations!!
My first set of Saturns in 2012 infected me for life.
I now own 2 complete kits, one for home and one for gigging, and there’s no going back.
I get so many unsolicited compliments from FOH and other musicians on their sound that it’s no coincidence.
You will love these drums.
