Most of us are musician’s too. Many of us are drummers. All of us love music. We get that you want awesome drums at a great price. But we also understand that the very act of playing is cathartic and transcends any brand. Look, we’d like everyone to play Mapex, but mostly we want fellow musicians to love playing. If we can help make that happen for you, we won’t let it end there.

We want your brutal honestly. We want your help in making Mapex drums the instrument that allows you to express yourself to the max.

What can we say, in the 1980's Ned Steinberger created a revolutionary bass design Called the Steinberger Bass, Jamaaladeen Tacuma received one of the first prototypes and fell in love. He is still playing the very same bass and has recently added the Wav4 and Wav Electric Upright to his arsenal In the mid-1970s, Ned met some like-minded individuals from the Brooklyn Woodworking Co-op. One of these was Stuart Spector, the New York luthier, who got Ned interested in the design of stringed instruments. Ned’s first instrument to meet major public acceptance was the Spector NS bass guitar, designed in 1976. With its distinctive curved body, both front and back, the Spector NS series has become a recognized classic and continues to enjoy wide popularity to this day.

The concept for the ‘headless bass’ soon followed. Ned wanted to develop and instrument that was not constrained by conventional design precepts, using new materials for the tonal properties they imparted. More importantly, he realized that the head was not essential, the tuners providing better balance when placed on the body of the instrument. This led to the establishment of the Steinberger Sound Corp. which successfully developed and marketed headless graphite instruments to world wide acclaim. The Steinberger Bass received numerous awards, including the coveted Design of the Decade award from the Industrial Designer Society Of America .....Sponsorship 2018-2019
