MPX snares were introduced to complement the Mapex Black Panther Series of premium snare drums, each addressing the needs of today's performing drummer. The MPX line includes eight new models available with steel, maple or birch shells. All MPX snare drums have low mass lugs, flanged steel hoops, fully adjustable throw-offs and Remo drum heads.
The new Mapex MPX hand-hammered steel snare drum is well equipped for any musical context. With the unique hamringsprocess it makes the snare drum incredibly beautiful, so reducing, but also it reduce the "clunk sound", compared to a conventional steel shell and offers bright clear overtones, focused "punch" in the mids, and full bodied bottom. The shell is equipped with hardware and lugs in high polished chrome, and Remo® UX heads. Also available in 12"x5". P>
