    Nice Snare

    By MikeDaDrumma

    from Dallas TX

    Comments about Mapex MPX Maple Snare Drum:

    I had higher hopes for this snare, but overall its not a bad sounding drum. Changed out the heads to Evans and put a new snare on it and it really made it come to life. Not as good as my Black Panther, but it's a good snare none-the-less.

    Hot n Tasty

    By T. Ourettes

    from Mississippi

    Comments about Mapex MPX Maple Snare Drum:

    I got this to go with my Mapex Pro M Maple jungle bop kit, and it's perfect. More snap crackle and pop than a box of you know what, even with the stock heads, right out of the box. I am a recent Mapex convert after using dogged out vintage Ludwig, Slingerland and new Gretsch. The bearing edges on Mapex drums are incredible, and they tune easily with a definite musical tone. Great deal for a 13.

    Price says everything

    By Observer

    from Croatia

    Comments about Mapex MPX Maple Snare Drum:

    I have expected more. The look of snare is superb, but it doesn't give the sound I have desired. I have expected deep, fat, low sound provided with maple shell and depth (7"). It can be reached but just sporadically. Also, drums can't preserve tuning, it detunes to easily and has too much overtones. If you like high tuning though and strong rimshots, you could be happy. Still, maybe I have expected too much if you consider the price of this drum.
