      Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

      I play in a Ska and Reggae band and this snare is perfect. I have many other snares and all of them cost much more but this has the high pitch and crack I was looking for.

        I have yet to use it with the band, but will soon. I like the sound it has given so far. It's cheap insurance if I have as a JIC in the box.

          Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

          This seems very well made, for the price. It's sensitive, but the snares aren't super sensitive near the rims, but I am comparing it to a brass, made in Japan, Yamaha, and a late 1960's Slingerland Super Sound King, with parallel strainers. But overall, it sounds great. I would recommend Moon Gel dampeners, for the reverb.

              For the price you cannot go wrong with this snare. With the right tuning to get the sound you want, you could definitely make great use out of this snare. This is my first piccolo and it has opened a new door of snare drums for me!

                  Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

                  The drum is loud and sensitive. You will need to experiment with different heads and dampening, as with all drums. It does not include an internal dampener. The sensitivity and tone of this drum is particularly evident when played with brushes. The strainer system and lugs are attractive and well made. If you gig a lot, and are looking for the benefits of a low-profile set-up, this is a great choice. The only thing I don't care for is that the high quality strainer and butt stick out too far on each side of the drum. It is a low profile drum (13" diameter), but with a high profile strainer system, which increases the practical diameter of the drum significantly.
