      Comments about Mapex Armory Series Daisy Cutter Snare Drum 14 x 6.5:

      I've been wanting a solid metal snare to add to my collection for a while. After perusing the web for a good while I stumbled upon Mapex armory series. I was blown away by the quality, tone and ESPECIALLY the price range. Very cheap for some quality drums. I soon ate my words shortly after receiving my daisy cutter..

      I took it out of the box and was basically salivating at the shell and the overall profile of the drum. Uber modern and very neat. But looks often are deceiving. Ironically enough I saw a review on the Mapex Exterminator(Of the armory series) I saw that a certain customer found the hardware, namely the lugs and tension rods to be faulty. Unfortunately I happened upon this review after my item was a day out from my home. I purchased some of my favorite Evans heads to swap out the factory heads. Soon after I started to loosen the top Head I noticed the tension rod nearest the strainer was rough to unscrew and then it started warping. I decided to keep going and undid all of the rods. I noticed that the head was stuck in the hoop. Turns out the hoop was warped as well.

      Think twice before you buy mapex. I know I will.

              Comments about Mapex Armory Series Daisy Cutter Snare Drum 14 x 6.5:

              I've always heard great things about Mapex so I figured I'd give this a shot. The build quality is excellent; nothing loose and no defects. The stock heads are fine, a Ambassador on the batter side is more than sufficient. The snares are responsive and cross sticks sound great. Rimshots are nice and loud with just enough sustain. A small piece of gaffers tape stops excessive ringing.

              I've tried more expensive Ludwig snares than this and have been disappointed by lugs falling off and overall lack of character. If you're looking for a well-made and beautiful looking snare definitely give this a shot.
