Steel Snare with Power and Versatility
Nothing beats a steel snare for projection and sensitivity. The Armory Tomahawk is the snare Mapex chose to include in all its Armory shell packs, so you can be sure this drum has versatility to match it explosive power. The Tomahawk bears all the marks of a fine steel snare: a deep, throaty growl, penetrating cut, and great snare sensitivity. Rounded 45-degree edges enhance brightness, while 2.3mm Mapex Power Hoops on top and bottom deliver a chunky attack. Sleek Armory Tube lugs and a smooth-action vertical throw off complete the package.
SONIClear bearing edges unlock this snare's full potential
Place a drumhead on your current snare. Notice the rocking? The drag when you spin it? That's proof that your bearing edges are robbing your drum of tone and tuning capability. Mapex's SONIClear bearing edges seat heads so perfectly that they can be hand-tensioned and still produce a pure tone. This widens the tuning range for players who like a deeper snare while producing a more musical pitch across the board.
Mapex Armory snare drums come in flavors for all tastes
With five wood and metal snare drums to choose from, the Mapex Armory collection has something for every player. Rock and metal players will most likely find their match in the steel Tomahawk or Daisy Cutter snares. Drummers looking for a more organic texture can choose from blends of maple, walnut, and birch in the Exterminator, Sabre, and Dillinger snare drums. Whatever your preference, the Superstore can confirm that every snare in this line complements the raw, focused energy of Mapex Armory drums.
