Mt.  Juliet, TN…June 26, 2012 – The Mapex Drum Company announced the  availability of a new Limited Edition Meridian Black drum kit called  “The Raven”.  This specially designed drum kit will be available exclusively through authorized Mapex  dealers worldwide. 

The  Meridian Black Raven kit is the first in a series of “Player Designed”  kits with features directly filling the needs of the modern rock  drummer.  The Raven kit will be a limited edition, specific in its configuration, and very  unique in its look.  Once they are sold out, they will not be  reproduced.

The  rich Birch/Maple shells crank out low and dark tones with a balanced  attack. The inside of the shells feature a new Black finish that  enhances resonance and projection. The 22"x20" Bass drum delivers massive low end  and the shallow toms speak fast. The kit boasts one 12"x08" rack tom,  and 14"x12" and 16"x14" floor toms, so the player can bring in their  ride cymbal close for optimal performance. A 14"x06" snare drum completes the set.

The  shells come wrapped in a semi-gloss black wood grain finish, fitted  with satin black hardware, and are topped with Remo clear pinstripe  drumheads. This 5-piece kit is all a player needs to be heard loud and clear, but a  10"x07" add-on tom is available for even more rock n' roll noise.

SHELL SPECS:
Bass Drum - 4.8mm Birch Exterior/2.4mm Maple Interior    
Toms & Snare - 4.1mm Birch Exterior/7.1mm Maple Interior
