BAJAAO India introduces the Mapex Horizon HZB, an entirely new drum series. The Horizon HZB features newly designed appointments, including lugs, bass drum mounts, badges and bass drum claws. All Horizon drum sets include a full set of all new Mapex 500 Series Hardware, a padded throne, and a set-up and instructional DVD.
The Horizon features 7.2mm, birch basswood hybrid shells on HZB with newly designed, low mass lugs. These small profile lugs are mounted to the shell using only a single point of contact, minimizing the holes drilled into the shell and thereby enhancing resonance. Horizon Series drums also use Remo drumheads, including a self-muffling bass drum batter head.
The Horizon’s bass drum claws are newly designed to be low in profile and include cushioned gaskets to protect the bass drum hoops. The bass drum’s tom mount features new styling and a built-in adapter to accommodate an optional cymbal arm.
Horizon Series drums use the Mapex-exclusive Isolated Tom Mounting System (ITS). The lightweight and compact system employs Mapex’s unique combination of off-the-shell mounting hardware that allows the drum to resonate more freely, improving projection and sustain. The Horizon’s ITS features an interlocking tom bracket that ensures secure positioning as well as quick and easy set up and tear down.
All Horizon drum sets feature newly designed Mapex 500 Series Hardware. The 500 Series includes many features that were introduced with the 700 series hardware including newly styled memory locks and Multi-Sustain Cymbal Felts, that allow players to use any combination of plastic or felt on their cymbal stands for more precise cymbal sustain.
Mapex Horizon drum sets also include an instructional set-up DVD, hosted by Drumming’s Global Ambassador and Mapex Artist, Dom Famularo.
The Horizon Series replaces the VX and QR Series product line, which has been discontinued.
The new Mapex Horizon HZB establishes a new industry standard. In fact the features on the Horizon HZB are comparable to those typically found on sets costing much more. The Horizon HZB birch basswood hybrid shell provides all of the tone and punch needed to play all music styles. The standard Horizon features included the newly re-designed Mapex Isolated Tom Holder System (ITS) and the new Mapex 500 series hardware. Combine the stylish new look and the superior sonic performance of the Horizon HZB and you will have the ideal drum set to start your musical journey.
