SONICLEAR EDGE AUDIO TEST SESSIONS


SOUND

The increased drumhead to shell contact acheived by the SONIClear Edge


enhances shell vibration, resulting in the "biggest" sound possible from the
drum.

(patent pending)

The SONIClear Bearing Edge is standard on all Armory shells and allows the drumhead to sit
flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental
pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range. For the
serious player, the increased head to edge contact increases shell vibration, allowing the sonic
nuances of the Hybrid shell to stand out.

Oscilloscope Example: The Green Waveform is a recording of a drum with


the SONIClear edge. The dark grey waveform is a drum with a typical edge.
Tuned to the same pitch and recording identically, it's clear that the drum with
the SONIClear Edge produces a much larger waveform from the initial strike
through the full sustain of the note.

Oscilloscope Comparison
Example:
SONIClear Edge
Typical Edge

SUSTAIN
Because the drumhead sits flat on the SONIClear Edge, the tension applied
during tuning is more balanced and stress-free. This allows the drumhead to
vibrate freely and fully.

Waveform Comparison Example: The Green Waveform is a recording of a drum


with the SONIClear edge. The dark grey waveform is a drum with a typical
edge. The size of the SONIClear waveform indicates a lower and stronger
fundamental pitch while the length indicates a longer sustain compared to a
typical edge.

SONIClear Edge

Allows the head to sit flush promoting ease of tuning,


increased shell resonance & optimal tonal clarity.

Typical Edge

Waveform Comparison
Example:
SONIClear Edge
Typical Edge

Causes the head to sit high resulting in tuning


difficulty, poor shell resonance & lack of tonal clarity.

PREMIUM
FEATURES

CONFIGURATIONS
Whats Your Setup?

Armory Series drums include a number of premium features borrowed from


the Mapex Saturn IV line that will provide pro-level performance to players
looking for an affordable but gig-worthy kit.

The Armory Series offers a variety of configurations designed to fit diverse musical applications. Whether the preference
is fast and focused or big and booming, every drummer can find a setup to suit their style.

The Armory Snare Drums are designed to complement any style of playing. The
Tomahawk comes standard with all Armory kits. It is made with a 1mm steel
shell and has penetrating accuracy and long range projection. The focused
power of its rim shot is devastating.

628SFE Studioease Shell Pack (Short Toms & Extra Deep Bass Drum)

The Armory Series "Studioease" Shell Pack includes short depth rack and floor toms and a deep bass that can span a wide range of
playing styles. The shorter tom depths quicken the stick response and are easier to tune higher without sacrificing body or power,
while the extra deep bass drum produces a powerful punch that will kick you in the chest. They're well-suited for the drummer
needing a great kit for all musical styles.

Straight from the Saturn IV Series, the SONIClear


Suspension System on the rack toms increases
overall resonance by preserving vibration in the
drumheads and shell and preventing energy
transfer to the hardware.

The Insulated Bass Drum Claws include rubber


gaskets that protect the hoop from damage and
prevent rattling or buzzing during periods of
extended play.

The 6ply 7.2mm Birch/Maple/Birch Hybrid


Shells deliver the ultimate in tone, resonance, and
punch. They allow the drums to speak quickly and
project clearly in the manner of old-world drum
craftsmanship.

On Armory kits that feature black hoops and


fittings, the Black Electro-Plating Process results
in a significant increase in finish durability compared
to powder-coatings found on other kits.

Virgin bass drums are standard with all configurations


in this series, giving the kick sound increased body and
low-end. Tom Arms and clamps are included for all rack
toms, lending ultimate set-up flexibility to the player.

628SFU Studioease Shell Pack (Short Toms)

The Armory Series Studioease Shell Pack includes short depth rack and floor toms that can
span a wide range of playing styles. The shorter depths quicken the stick response and are
