    Default Mapex qr Pea**** Swirl

    Hey there everyone,

    I'm new to drumming, and I picked up a Mapex qr set in Peac ock Swirl (used) with hardware and Zildjian zbt cymbals for 200 dollars. The person that I bought it from said that it used to be the floor model at guitar center. I can't seem to find too much info on the peac ock swirl color. Out of curiosity, Is it a fairly uncommon color?

    Thanks for the input!

    I had a set of those a few years ago, but had to sell them when I got laid off from my job :( Mine were 12, 13, 16, 22 with matching 14 x 5.5 snare. If I find another set I will buy them!

    They were made in the mid '90s. They also made a red/orange version of the swirl, and both were limited runs, so they are pretty rare. I couldn't find much information on them either, except that the shells were made from "select hardwoods" The shell hardware is top-notch---ball type tom mounts with L-rods, lug mounted brackets, wood bass drum hoops, and die-cast claws. Solid kit for gigging, and they look amazing under the lights!

    The wrap is textured, so it looks different when you change viewing or lighting angles, and seems to dance under stage lights---reminds me of the old 3-D baseball cards from my childhood!
