Mapex Drums At 2012 NAMM

Mapex made a bold statement at this year’s NAMM Show in more ways than one. The company moved to a much bigger and more prominent spot in the D Hall, where most other drum companies exhibit. And they also launched the new Mydentity line of custom drums, which offer a wide array of options at a reasonable price and super quick turnaround. We also gawked at the company’s latest limited edition Black Panther drum kit, the Retrosonic, made of 100 percent walnut.
