Mapex Armory Daisy Cutter 14x6.5 Snare Drum
Our thoughts: This snare comes from one of our own. This was Luke's first snare and he's passing on the good tones as he pursues other sounds. Firstly, this snare is LOUD. It cuts through pretty much anything and in the best way. In our experience, Mapex often produce snare drums that punch above their price range and this is no exception. For the low-mid range price you get a snare drum that competes with snare drums in the mid-high range. The bearing edges lend to easy tuning and clear fundamentals. The overtones are complex and welcoming. When tuned high, a lot of depth is maintained, resulting in a powerful attack, big punch, and unique resonance that is easily dampened if you wish to tighten up the sound.
She's a weapon. Be kind to Luke and take good care of her.
