|Tom with Signature|
Mapex Drums unveiled their first ever Carmine Appice Signature Drum kits at Summer NAMM, offering 50 Limited Edition classic black V-Series kits, available as a five-piece single bass drum kit or the set-up as Appice himself likes it, as a double bass kit. Each kit is hand-signed by the legendary drummer.
"I have trusted Mapex for many years," said Appice. The V-Series double bass kit I rely on is fabulous - great for all the styles of music I play. I'm thrilled about the new Signature kits and, having worked personally with Mapex for many years, I am honored to hand-sign the kits and to be a part of this campaign."
The drumsets are a one time offering from Mapex. Each kit will include its own serialized hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity. Carmine Appice has hand-signed the shells of the 13" x 11" tom on fifty V-Series kits. Each set will also include an offer for over $100 worth of Carmine Appice promotional items when registering the kit with Mapex.
The V-Series drumsets, all in classic black, include, a 14" x 5 1/2" wood snare, 12" x 10" and 13" x 11" rack toms, a 16" x 16" floor tom, as well as either one or two 22" x 16" bass drums. The kits also consists of all the required hardware, with the double bass kit containing an extra pedal, high hat clamp, bass tube assembly, and a boom cymbal arm.
