What We Think

 

The Mapex MPX Hammered Steel Snare Drums are the ultimate in all-purpose, affordable snares. The steel delivers a balanced tone with crisp highs, a focused mid-range, and fat lows while the hammered dimples produce a drier sound while maintaining a solid metallic crack. The vailablesizes and tuning range allow the drum to perform well in an extreme range of styles, from light rock to heavy metal.

Mapex SONIClear™ DEMO

Mapex wants drummers to spend less time tuning and be able to play more. The result of that mission is the latest innovation from Mapex: The SONIClear™ bearing edge, which 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.
