          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.

                      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.

                                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.
