    Default Expanding your kit

    Hi Guys.
    I have a Mapex Prodigy standard 5 piece, and i want to add to it.
    Ive spent hours searching online and found nothing.
    Im interested in getting another bass drum, and a couple more toms, in that same color and model.
    I could go back to the drum shop and ask if they could help, but being that im in New Zealand, its pretty Limited here and i dont think the shop could find anything either.
    Any help finding anything would be much appreciated.

    Hi Edi, Welcome to drum chat.


    I looked around the Mapex website, and your kit doesn't seem to be made any longer, so finding additional drums, especially in a secluded market like NZ, will be very difficult. Don't feel bad though. A lot of us are in the same situation as you, looking for pieces to add on to our kits. I am in the very same position as you. DW discontinued my color, so I'm stuck browsing the used market with a hope and a prayer.

    I'd imagine that your best bet will be the same.

    Good luck!

    I looked for almost 3 years to find a 13"x9" Blue Prism tom for my Pearls.

    Send a picture of a drum so I know what to look for. Getting the drums for my Ludwigs was easy. All I needed was a Ludwig tom of the size I wanted because I knew I was going to rewrap them.
