    Comments about Mapex MPX Maple Snare Drum:

    On sale, and with a coupon, I ended up paying eighty five for this snare, which feels like out of a Twilight Zone episode to me. But even at full price, this snare is totally worth it. This snare is sturdy, beautifully finished, and the hardware is well built. Nylon washers makes tuning a breeze. The look of the snare is stunning. It will look good with any color of drum set (I have a silver sparkle, and it goes well with that)
    The Remo heads that came with the snare are not too bad. If you don't want to spend extra money right away, and you are good at tuning, they will do the job for a while. I did changed them though. I put an Evans dry on the batter, and a Hazy 300, on the snare side.
    This snare produces a great sound at all turnings, it is very versatile. It is very responsive, and crisp. I usually like to tune snares pretty tight, but with this one, I was surprised to like it better with a little looser batter head. This snare is loud, especially on the rimshots. It is great for live performances. The first time I took it to a gig, and hit it, the bass player turned around in amazement. It is always good to confirm that what we hear is not only in our head.
    The only problem was that it was advertised as coming with 20 strands snares, and it came with 14. But this ended being a good thing. I have not used a 14 strand in probably 30 + years, I forgot what it was like. In this snare, the 14 strand makes the snare shell come alive. I did switch to a 20 strand though, just to give it a little more snare sound. I am having a hard time deciding which one I like the best, the snare sounds great with both. I will keep the 20 for now, since it is more appropriate for the music of my upcoming gigs.
    I will not consider this snare drum an entry level drum. It is an intermediate drum, at an entry level price (or less than entry!).
    Amazing snare drum, at an amazing price.

      Nice Snare

      from Dallas TX

      See all my reviews

      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.

      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.
