Orion!!!!!!!!!
 
what do you think of the Mapex set, Orion? i personally think it is a glorious god.

i tell you man........working in a 5 star drum shop gives me the chance to see and play ALL the new gear that's out. I gota' say that this year... Mapex has done something special. the orion and the saturn kits are out of control. I really dig the saturns. they sound unbelievable, and the finishes are beautiful as well. they are really turning that company around. if any of you are looking for a new kit.........diff. check them out as they are outstanding.

Orions and Saturns are wonderfull looking and sounding kits!

I've played one, sounded great. It's the one with the gold lugs but chrome hoops, right? That's the one thing I didn't like.

Derek Roddy 09-01-2005 10:33 AM

those are the old orions. they have a new design and no longer come with the gold.

Mapex is OFF THE CHAIN! It's probably the meanest, Baddest drum company (that many are not that familiar with) happening! Their isolation systems are genius and the finishes are the most beautiful I've ever seen. The Orion Burl Maple with the Imperial Burst finish simply floors me!

From the Orion to the VX Series, these are some butt stompin drums!

From a guy playing sonor's high end kits, that means something!

Matthias 09-01-2005 10:06 PM

Got an Orion, too! (Also the old one with the gold :) )

I have Q and I think they have best relation between quality and price. But if I would go for some serious drums I would probably choose Pearl Masters or Tama Starclassic.

bobby 09-02-2005 05:10 AM

i am purchasing one of these shortly, some idiot told me that they were rubbish and the hardware sucked, i owned his ass for such a stupid comment!

Trencherman 09-02-2005 07:30 AM

Mapex also do Limited Edition Orion drum sets with hoop finishes to match the lugs. One of my drum tutors had a gorgeous Orion Custom with gold plated lugs and hoops, and one of my mates bought the LE Orion in Coffee Fade -- brown to orange to brown, with black chrome lugs and hoops. I borrowed it for my drum clinic! SWEET! And what's more, he got it on special offer for 1400, which is equivalent to about $2400.

In saying that, if I had enough money to buy a Mapex Orion I'd sooner get a DW shell pack or a small set up with hardware. :)
