Awesome snare!

Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

This is so identical to the 149.99 Mapex MPX piccolo its not funny. Great snare even with the stock heads, of coarse higher quality ones will be better when these wear out. I tuned it to a mid pitch and applied one moongel and it sounds fantastic!... I am actually using this as my main snare right now and really like it. Sharp cutting crack of the whip and very responsive. I compared it to a MPX snare and all I could tell the difference on is the strainer on the MPX is a little fancier and maybe different hoops, other than that I couldn't see the difference. If you are looking for a cheap auxiliary snare on the cheap but not cheap quality look no further.

Fantastic snare, exceptional value!

By Charlie Korch

Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

This snare sounds great regardless of price. When you consider price, it is unbeatable. Cutting, with plenty of crack, this snare can be used for either a main snare, or a side snare. I currently use mine tuned up rather high. It is perfect for funky breakdowns, ala James Brown. The batter head also has a nice "rough" surface that works great with brushes. For the price you pay, it is worth having this as a second snare, just in case you break a head at a gig, and don't have time to swap heads. Do yourself a favor, and pick this little wonder up. You won't regret it!

Mapex Piccolo Snare

Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

Overall, this is a great snare. I would use it for a primary snare if I had too. It has good quality sound for an inexpensive drum. Great value. I've never had a backup snare and I was wanting to aquire a piccolo snare, so I thought for the price, what the heck, I was really pleasantly surprised.
For the price this snare is really good. Sounds good, I'm using it for a practice snare and it will serve as a backup snare.
It tunes up really well, 8 lugs for tuning is really good. Has a good sound.
This snare is made really well, 8 lugs for tuning (not usually found on a inexpensive drum) the throw off is good, and it has a 20 strand snares. For the price it is a excellent drum.

      I got this snare for a great price, and it's affordable to begin with ... I'm amazed at how good it sounds, considering how inexpensive it is. Great crack to it, and it has a nice pitch. I'm very happy to have made this purchase.

        picked this up on sale for my punk project and for an extra snare on gigs in case main snare problems.
        changed batter side head to evans g1 and pure sound snare wires this snare will hang with snares costing hundreds more easy to tune loud and articulate have owned many snares over the years and this is hands down the best piccolo snare for the money throw off is ok bearing edges are good and looks are amazing don't spend more than what this cost's you wont regret it.will be in my quiver for many years to come.

        wow! I was expecting an ok snare for the sale price but I'm impressed. I love the tone, responsiveness, the nice sharp attack when the drum is struck. I had to make some minor adjustments as to snare tension the way I like it and it is all good. Highly recommended!

            Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

            I have had other piccolo snares in the past, and have missed that "crack" lately, so I decided to try this one out.

            I purchased one of these to try out at home and liked it so much that I have now purchased two more! This past weekend I put one on my touring set and I think it will be my new primary snare; it is replacing a 1960's Ludwig Supraphonic that I've been playing for years.

            This is an excellent piccolo snare drum. It is well made and solid. I like my snare tuned high and tight to begin with, and with a little dampening, this drum produces that snappy "crack" that I like, without the overtones.

            At this price, you owe it to yourself to try one of these out, if that is the type of sound that you like.

            Wanted to add a side snare to my kit, and had always wanted a piccolo snare. Well, the price was right so I ordered. I am VERY impressed with the quality of this little baby. It is crisp, responsive, and overall just neat! I could easily get by with this as my main snare. The only thing it does not have is a damper for the batter head but, for me and for its intended purpose - that's fine!

            Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

            Exactly what you need to get that sound for those dope fills if you're gonna play drums in a band that has anything to do ska music. All you gotta do is turn the snare off and tune it up high.
