Mapex Prodigy Drum Kits
Since its launch, the Mapex Prodigy kit has become one of the most popular entry-level drum kits on the market – and for good reason! For 2018, Mapex has added a new Custom configuration to the lineup.

Standard, Fusion, or Custom?

The Prodigy range offers drummers who are just starting out the opportunity to choose a configuration to match their musical tastes.  The choice of bass drum and tom sizes available between the Standard, Fusion and Custom configurations means drummers can choose a kit suited to styles ranging from Rock to Jazz.  Shipped complete with cymbals, cymbal stands, and drum stool makes these drum kits ideal for anyone wanting to start drum lessons, or even take to the stage as they launch their drumming career!


Drum Sizes: 12”, 13”, and 16” toms. 22” bass drum. 14″snare.
Cymbals: 14” hi-hats, 16” crash ride cymbal.

The Mapex Ethos

Mapex believes that it all starts with the raw materials. The company is always striving to build the best shells. This process relies heavily on the expertise of those who source the woods used.

Once the perfect tonewoods have been selected, next comes the looks. A great looking kit will inspire any drummer to spend hours honing their craft. All of the Mapex lacquer drums have an eight coat, hand rubbed, high-gloss lacquer applied to each shell. This allows the finish to be both durable and easy to maintain.
