Mapex Marching Percussion has announced a new partnership to be the exclusive provider of marching drums to meet these needs of the Florida State University Marching Chiefs.

Everyone we know currently using Mapex is super excited about the gear, and we are proud to be a part of the Mapex family,” says Dr. Patrick Dunnigan, FSU director of bands.

The new FSU Mapex drum lineup was customized in the Mapex Mt. Juliet Tennessee drum shop, including 10 snare drums, 5 Classic Cut Sextet Tenors featuring the patented RMI Free Floating Lug Bridge system and a full complement of 6 tonal bass drums for an absolutely huge sound. The entire battery is finished in FSU Chiefs Garnet Sparkle. Mapex Percussion Product Manager Jeff Mulvihill remarks: “I am really excited to see Mapex on the field with the Marching Chiefs. This band has areputation as big as its sound with the tradition and style to back it up. I couldn’t be more thrilled for the FSU drumline to be powered by Mapex.”
