Chris Morris’ Mapex Mars

Chris Morris' Mapex Mars

By Jordan Liffengren Published August 16, 2010

"This set's a 1998 Mapex Mars series that my parents bought for me when I was 16 years old," says drummer Chris Morris. "It has been through many incarnations, but I'm very happy with the current version. It's traveled all over the Southeastern US and has played in many bands. Currently, I'm using this set with my band East North. We're an instrumental Post-Rock band whose song structure relies heavily on the drums. I like huge tone and this drum set sounds huge!"
