A beautifully hand-crafted tom with a remarkably wide tonal range.
When you actually play a Saturn drum experience its performance--only then will you realize just how incredible your playing can sound. The drum artisans at Mapex match the finest, thinnest plies of North American Maple with a selection of dark, rich walnut. The Saturn is exacting enough for any and all studio applications and has been thoroughly road tested by nearly every professional artist on the Mapex roster.
Every Saturn component is finished with eight hand-rubbed coats of high gloss lacquer. This unique finishing process gives the drum a beautifully deep, high-gloss, protective shine.
Saturn toms are equipped with exclusive Mapex Powerhoops. Made from 2.3mm chrome steel, the Mapex Powerhoop provides less resistance without adding unnecessary weight that may mute the drum. The tom's mount is secured via the lugs and is not drilled directly into the shell. The Mapex I.T.S. System allows the shell to vibrate freely, allowing for maximum projection and resonance. All Saturn tom toms are equipped with Remo Emperor drumheads.
Mapex's low mass lugs are secured to the shell via only one point of penetration. Fewer holes in the drum shell means less vibratory interruption, resulting in truer tone and unimpeded resonance.
