5.5″ x 14″ Maple Snare Drum with 2.3mm Triple-flanged Hoops
Mapex’s Take on an Old Snare Standby
The maple snare is a drummer’s stage and studio standby. The Mapex Armory Dillinger boasts the same rich, open tone and organic warmth as some of the most sought-after snares in drum history. But only the Dillinger is equipped with Mapex’s modern shell and hardware advancements and features such a striking figured wood veneer. The Mapex Armory Dillinger’s low end is full and pronounced, thanks to SONIClear bearing edges that widen the usable tuning range and 2.3mm Mapex Power Hoops on top and bottom. 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 flavours 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, Musiekwereld can confirm that every snare in this line complements the raw, focused energy of Mapex Armory drums.
