The Mapex Armory Dillinger Snare is dying to be your go-to maple backbeat. Open with the flick of a finger, the 8-ply maple shell of this drum opens up with just a flick of the wrist and produces a balanced, bright tone.
The SONIClear bearing edge (standard on all Armory wood shells) allows all drumheads to sit flat and tune effortlessly and respond with a stronger fundamental pitch. Precision-tooled solid steel Armory Tube Lugs deliver greater tuning accuracy and shell stability while giving the drum an elegant, modern appearance.

Comments about Mapex Armory Series Dillinger Snare Drum 14 x 5.5:
Great sounding snare tempered by sub-par craftsmanship & customer service !
I really like the sound of this snare, too bad the throw off & butt plate are poorly made and screws got completely stripped after few months - i did change the snares and bottom drum head only once (no reason for those parts to get stripped).
Mapex customer service is not helping, i have emailed back and forth several times , unfortunately Mapex did not send any parts for replacement.
It has been going on for months now, too bad Mapex have a great sounding product, a competitive price point but with zero warranty backup on what appears to be a faulty/damaged product parts.
2 Stars -- needs that special something -- in this case a reliable manufacturer & parts.
