          Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

          I bought this snare a few months ago when it was on sale, and I can personally tell you that this snare is just too good to pass up! Although it is not my main snare, its a great secondary snare. I used this snare in a few of my bands songs when a snappy and bright snare sound was required, or a marching snare effect was needed. I also use this snare to accent certain portions of a song when it was needed. Although the snares and strainer are a little on the cheap side, at this price range though, its easily forgiven. All in all, this little snare is an awesome bang for buck snare! If your looking for spare snare, you can't go wrong with this little guy!

            Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

            It's a great drum with great sound for a great price. The factory snares sound good, but I added a different set to really get the sound that I wanted. I changed the factory heads and the snares and it sounds awesome! I've read reviews of the strainer slipping, but I havent experienced that yet. Although the strainer does seem like it's under a lot of tension.

                  Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

                  I've had this snare for two years and use it as my main. It has a broad tuning range with just the right amount of overtones than can be controlled easily with a moon gel. It has an amazing rimshot that cuts through the mix with out being distracting in a live setting.
                  The cons: the tension adjustment on the throw off doesn't like to stay tight. I have to retighten about every 20-30 minutes of play. It's not suited for vintage style recording. It sounds flat and quiet unless it is close mic'd. When close mic'd it sounds amazing so you'll just need to balance/eq your overheads.

                    Comments about Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum:

                    This is an amazing snare! So glad I bought this! There were only a couple minor issues. The throw off would stay on all the time, but the snares would loosen up so you would lose the sound that you had. And if you were to tighten the snares to much, you wouldn't get any snare sound if you were playing ghost notes. But other than that, it has an amazing tone and it has this amazing ring! Even though this snare has a very short depth, it has lots of body and I was amazed at the tuning range it had.

                      Replaced head with evans reverse dot. replaced wire with pure sound. I play in a ska band and this snare is perfect and the price is outstanding.

                        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!

                          I have wanted a piccolo snare for a while for accents. Got a great deal on this one and I think it is well worth the money. Only thing I am going to change is eventually it will get an Aquarian triple threat head.
