The Mapex Sledgehammer's unique fit and finish believe its workhorse appeal. This snare really can handle it all, from punk and black metal to country and soul. Its handsome, 1.2mm hammered antique brass shell has a delightfully modern character and tremendous projection, with the complex bite and sensitivity that only brass can achieve. Yet with very little damping, this Black Panther turns pussycat, capable of woody, punchy, and dry overtones to serve any song. The Mapex Sledgehammer's heavy-duty brushed Sonic Saver Hoops and 45-degree bearing edges give it a wide tuning range, while its smooth throw off makes it easy to dial in some coveted snare tones.

Hammered shell has a complex look and voice

What hammering does for fine cymbals, it does also for the Mapex Sledgehammer's all-brass shell. The Sledgehammer's complex overtones espouse none of the pingy-ness common to brass snares, while at the same time giving it a unique finish and luxurious look you'll be proud to show off at a gig.

Sonic Savers bridge the gap between flanged and cast

Mapex Sonic Saver hoops produce a tone of their own, combining with the crack of the Sledgehammer's shell for a round, powerful rimshot. At a pound and a half each, it should also come as no surprise that Sonic Savers are built to take a beating without warping or falling apart.
